 JW Marriott has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the Middle East with the opening of the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai.

 Acquiring the coveted title of Worlds Tallest Hotel from the Guinness Book of World Records, the 72-storey property is the first JW Marriott Marquis outside of North America and the 59th addition to the brands global luxury portfolio.

Soaring at 355 metres (1,164 feet), the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is just 26 metres shorter than New York Citys famed Empire State Building.

In addition to serving luxury business travellers, the hotel, which is owned by Emirates Group, will target the lucrative and increasingly important MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) market by filling a long-identified gap in the region.

Along with cutting-edge business facilities, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai features more than 7,500 square metres of indoor and outdoor event space, including two ballrooms, and a large selection of world-class dining and entertainment options.

The JW Marriott Marquis Dubai offers an enticing array of nine restaurants, and five bars and lounges, including the sky-high steakhouse Prime 68; the experiential sushi restaurant Izakaya; and cocktail bar Vault, which is situated on the 71st and 72nd floors and features panoramic views of the city. The hotel is also home to Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin Star.

The 4,000 square metre Saray Spa and Health Club draws inspiration from the caravanserai silk route, with treatments designed to ensure mind and body renewal. Treatments include the Signature Milk and Honey treatment, an Arabic Coffee Awakener, and Lemon Mint Body Polish.

A sprawling pool deck covers the 7th floor of the hotel with a 30-metre swimming pool. Aqua Poolside Bar and Grill draws inspiration from Miamis renowned South Beach, offering light snacks and beverages throughout the day.

Conference organizers and businesses around the world are noticing Dubais growing influence as a global business hub, said General Manager, Rupprecht Queitsch. We are thrilled to be officially open and believe this iconic new property will set a new standard in business hotels, not just in the region, but throughout the world.

Tallest Hotel

As there are many hotels around the world which are actually higher than the JW Marriott Marquis, such as the ultra-luxurious Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong with its outstanding swimming pool on the 118th floor, the JW Marriott Marquis is the tallest hotel, which simply means that the building is 100% hotel, rather than a mix of hotel and offices etc.
