JW Marriott Marquis Hotel

Location : Dubai, UAE

Details:: Marriott International, the US-based hotel operator, will open the world's tallest hotel tower building, the 355-metre JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, its eighth Dubai property, next year.

The 80-storey Marquis, which will eclipse the current title holder, the 330-metre, 72-storey high Rotana-owned Rose Rayhaan hotel in Dubai, will be Marriott's largest hotel outside the US.

It is part of a broader move by the chain to operate 74 hotels across the Middle East and North Africa by 2015.

It is looking to reach almost 74 hotels by the year 2015 in this market. If things turn around the way they are, it might actually even get close to a hundred.

The company currently operates 31 hotels across the Mena region, with a further 37 under development. A further six properties were announced recently, bringing the chain's pipeline to 74 hotels by 2015.

A further 26 properties were possible, depending on fast the hotels could be brought online and deals agreed with prospective owners.

It has increased its development team in the region to five, where it was originally two. While it can only announce officially the 74, it has a vision that it could grow to more as it has so many developers now in the market.

By 2015, the group will operate 17,600 rooms across nine countries, representing seven brands.
