Dubai’s JW Marriott Marquis expects 2014 revenue to double
Bill Keffer, general manager of the JW Marriott Marquis hotel on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road, has said he expects 100% growth in revenue this year over 2013 as the property boosts its room inventory, Gulf News has reported. “I have never worked in a market that continues to absorb inventory the way this one does,” Keffer said. The hotel, owned by Emirates Group, has 1,105 rooms with the addition of 301 rooms in the recently opened second tower. By the end of the year, the hotel is expected to have 1,608 rooms. Marriott International currently has three other properties under the JW Marriott brand in the Middle East including Kuwait, Cairo and Deira in Dubai.
