Guinness World Records has officially recognised the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai as the tallest in the world.
At a height of 355 metres from ground level to the top of its mast, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is only 26 metres short of the Empire State Building in New York.
Spread across two iconic 77-floor twin towers, each with 804 rooms and an enticing array of 14 restaurants, bars and lounges, the hotel is set to be one of the region’s most desirable destinations.
It is also Dubai’s first world-class convention and business destination hotel, filling a long identified gap in the market where groups, meetings and conventions of up to 1,000 people can meet, sleep and dine under one roof, in one location.
“We are excited and delighted to be officially recognised as the world’s tallest hotel.
“Dubai is a city of superlatives and the JW Marriott Marquis is an outstanding addition its iconic skyline.
“This Guinness World Record will help us to put Dubai on the global business destination map,” said Rupprecht Queitsch, general manager of the hotel.
