JW Marriott launches first hotel in Vietnam
December 10, 2013: Marriott International is all set for expansion into Southeast Asia with the unveiling of JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi. The property is the JW Marriott brand’s third to open in Asia within the past two months (others in Bengaluru and New Delhi), signifying investment in the region by the luxury hotel brand.
The 450-room, 75,000 sq m JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi is a 'reverse skyscraper' which was inspired by the country’s magnificent coastline and evokes characteristics of a dragon. The hotel will have a total of six restaurant and bar outlets. Dining venues include the French Grill, serving fresh seafood and prime cuts of steaks along with a variety of premium wines and spirits; and a Chinese restaurant specializing in Cantonese fare. Guests are also invited to sample fare from across the globe throughout the day at JW Café. Meanwhile, Antidote Bar hopes to become one of the most sought after nightspots in the city. With over 3,600 sqm of flexible meeting space, JW Marriott Hanoi can cater to the flourishing market for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) in Vietnam.
Marriott International expects to more than double in size in Asia, from 144 open hotels to more than 330 by 2017, and double its total number of associates to more than 80,000.
