JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai – Hotel concept and design
The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is housed in a stunning twin-tower complex that sits on a 221,246-sq-ft ‘L’-shaped plot between the Sheikh Zayed Road in the west and Business Bay to the east. This plot will adjoin a future extension of the creek with a promenade on the south side.
The form of the towers is inspired by the date palm, a symbol highly evocative of the Arabian culture, and replicates in its detailing the trunk of the palm.
The two towers sit atop two basement levels, a ground floor and a seven-level podium, and are symmetrically positioned to allow the best views of the Burj Khalifa, Business Bay and Dubai Water Canal. The towers comprise 66 guest floors, eight service levels and six intermediate levels plus the roof top, encompassing a total built-up area of 3.525 million square foot.
Each tower has two presidential suites, 506 typical King rooms, 156 typical twin rooms, four rooms fitted specifically for the disabled and 118 corner suites, with the remaining space comprising 22 executive King rooms in a choice of configurations.
