The first tower of the world's tallest hotel, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, has opened its doors adding 804 rooms to the Sheikh Zayed Road inventory.

Officially recognised as the world’s tallest hotel at a height of 355 metres, only 26 metres short of the Empire State Building, New York, the JW Marriott Marquis has been dubbed Dubai’s first world-class convention and business destination hotel.

General Manager Rupprecht Queitsch personally greeted the first guests, Tommaso Bendoni of GlobeSoccer - the firm will hold its exclusive annual event in the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai in December 2012 - and Fadi Deek, director for Boeing IT Middle East and Africa.

By January, 2013 the hotel will have all nine restaurants and five bars and lounges open, with a 'grand opening' scheduled to take place in February 2013.

The property is located in the heart of Business Bay, close to Dubai World Trade Centre, the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre and Dubai International Airport.

“The JW Marriott Marquis will add significantly to Dubai in its drive to become the preferred choice for meetings, incentives, conference and events business. We are working in tandem with the Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing and Dubai Convention Bureau to put Dubai on the global business destination map,” added Queitsch.
