JW Marriott Marquis

It is not clear if holding the most records in the world is a record by itself, but if it is, then this record would rightfully be held by Dubai. In this race for world records Dubai’s hospitality industry could not be left behind.

In 2006, Emirates Group launched the construction of a twin-tower hotel complex facing the Business Bay area, alongside SZR. The final design provided for two 355m tall towers. When completed in 2012 the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai became the tallest hotel in the world, taking away the record from the Rose Rayhaan by Rotana.

Run by Marriott International, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai has received numerous industry and media awards.
