Marriott International kicks off 2014 with two new Dubai properties

Marriott International opened two new properties in Dubai. The two properties carry the company’s signature brand, Marriott Hotels, as well as its upscale serviced apartments brand, Marriott Executive Apartments. 

The Dubai Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf and Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Al Jaddaf are located near the Dubai International Airport, Dubai Mall and the Gold Souk. The properties are also situated in close proximity to Dubai’s MEA Al Jaddaf 1 Bedroom Living and KitchenRoyal residence, Zabeel Palace, and both offer views of the city landscape of Sheikh Zayed Road, Business Bay and the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa.

The Dubai Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf is the first Middle East and Africa property to open following the new brand transformation that Marriott Hotels has been going through globally since last year. This includes not only a new logo that keeps the “M” while modernizing its overall appeal, but also an ongoing innovation throughout its hotels around the world, with re-designed lobbies and public spaces known as “Greatrooms” and introducing a mobile check-in application. The Dubai Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf has 352 rooms across eight floors with 192 Deluxe King and 107 Deluxe Double rooms, including 39 Executive Suites, two Zabeel Suites and a Presidential Suite. The hotel also offers 14 meeting rooms as well as the Zabeel ballroom that can accommodate up to 540 people. The property has seven restaurants, lounges and bars.

Meanwhile, Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Al Jaddaf is the brand’s sixth property in the region, with a further six set to open across the Middle East and Africa by 2017. Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Al Jaddaf has 128 fully furnished apartments including one, two and three bedrooms.

The Marriott Hotels brand currently has 16 hotels in seven countries across the Middle East and Africa, with over 5,000 rooms. By 2017, there will be a further 12 properties across the region, raising the room count by nearly 3,000 rooms.

Introduced in 1997 to the Marriott International portfolio, Marriott Executive Apartments is the company’s only corporate apartment brand designed to provide upscale residential living.
