One of the most striking elements of the Taipei Marriott Hotel will be the pervasive use of greenery, part of Marriott’s “Green Hotel Development” initiative. Indigenous shrubbery and flowering plants will be found throughout the hotel grounds and, like a botanical garden, will be interspersed with pieces of art and sitting areas. In the center of the landscape will be “Butterflies,” an aluminum sculpture by Spainaird Manolo Valdes, inspired by the nearby butterfly biosphere reserve on Mt. Jiannan. The sculpture is the artist’s tribute to Taiwan, known as “The Butterfly Kingdom,” and serves as a tribute to nature and the arts.

The Taipei Marriott Hotel will offer 32,292 square feet of pillarless, flexible space that can be transformed into up to 12 meeting spaces, as well as a 13,563-square-foot Grand Ballroom. The Garden Villa located on the top floor of the conference center will offer direct access to a rooftop garden and a chapel.

Taipei Marriott Hotel will offer five restaurants and lounges, including: Lobby Lounge, Garden Kitchen, Mac’s Teppan, Marriott’s signature Chinese restaurant The Dining Place, and Oxy Bar & Grill.

Other amenities will include: Taipei Marriott Hotel’s SPA, located on the 19th floor; and 24-hour fitness center, including a rooftop swimming pool.

The Taipei Marriott Hotel will be located in the Dazhi District, the capital’s new commercial hub, just 10 minutes from Songshan International Airport and five minutes from the Neihu Technology Park. In addition, the MRT Jiannan Rd. station, the Mt. Jiannan Trail and the Miramar Shopping Center are short walks from the hotel. Finally, the Taipei Marriott also enjoys the distinction of being the closest five-star hotel to the National Palace Museum.
