A look inside the tallest hotel in the world

Boasting modern rooms and exceptional views of Dubai, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is one of the UAE’s prime locations for MICE events

The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is the tallest in the world, offering luxury accommodation and spectacular views of Dubai 

In a city of awe-inspiring ambition and unsurpassed luxury, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is one of the most desirable destinations for business and leisure travellers. At a height of 355 metres, it is the tallest hotel in the world. Featuring the highest level of comfort, technology, personal service and cutting edge business facilities for discerning travellers, the JW Marriott Marquis has won 50 industry and media awards since it opened in 2012.

The two hotel towers have been designed to resemble a date palm, a symbol highly evocative of sophisticated Arabian culture. In particular, the hotel towers replicate the intricate details of the palm’s trunk. Sitting atop two basement levels, a ground floor and a seven-level podium, the towers have been carefully positioned to allow the best views of the Burj Khalifa, Business Bay and the glittering waters of the Persian Gulf. The towers comprise 66 guest floors, eight service levels and six intermediate levels, plus the rooftop, which altogether create an overall built-up area of 3.525m sq ft.

All of the rooms across both towers are modern and elegant in design with an emphasis on space, luxury and comfort. Woven into the foundation of every room is the absolute latest in technology, including LCD televisions, BOSE speakers, wireless internet and touchscreen room controls.
