Marriott International brought its signature Marriott Hotels & Resorts brand to India’s state of Rajasthan with the opening of the 365-room Jaipur Marriott Hotel. With seven separate food and beverage outlets and 43,000 square feet of meeting space, the contemporary, stylish Jaipur Marriott is now the state’s largest hotel in terms of rooms and event space and is well on its way to becoming a culinary landmark.

Popularly known as the Pink City, Jaipur is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan. Founded in 1727, Jaipur is one of the finest planned cities of India and, with a population of more than 3.9 million, is a growing hub for business and leisure tourism.
“With tremendous growth as a business hub during the past few years, Jaipur is set to become one of the most sought-after destinations for both leisure and for business travelers in India,” said Rajeev Menon, Marriott International’s area vice president, India, Maldives, Malaysia & Australia. “The Jaipur Marriott Hotel will set a new benchmark for lodging in the city.”
“Marriott Hotels & Resorts continues to set the global brand standard in quality lodging, and the Jaipur Marriott Hotel is the latest example of how we deliver world-class locations with genuine care for all travel occasions,” said Paul Cahill, senior vice president of brand management for Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
The Jaipur Marriott combines a sense of place with the latest style and design of Marriott Hotels & Resorts. The plush, earthy tones and the light, airy interiors decorated with Rajasthani murals, latticework carvings and iconic stone carved elephants create an inimitable aura. The leather and wood combination on the ceilings, and water cascading on glass throughout the hotel makes it a welcoming universe.
The heart and social hub of the hotel is the lobby which incorporates two of the hotel’s seven food and beverage outlets. The Jaipur Baking Company adapts the classic pastry shop, with an interactive open baking area serving freshly baked pastries and cakes, alongside wonderful pastas, salads and sandwiches. Lounge 18 is divided into clearly defined zones such as social, business and individual where guests enjoy the lounge depending on whether they are working, socializing or just relaxing with a drink.
For all-day dining, Okra features international cuisine in a stylish, contemporary setting. Aqua, the pool bar and deli will provide a wonderful escape from the city and the Rajasthan summer.
