The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai will eventually have 1,608 guest rooms, and the second tower is a duplicate of the first. The experience will be similar to the latest crop of giant cruise ships where you get to enjoy an intimate vacation with several thousand other guests.

The second tower at JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, the world’s tallest hotel, is now open, with 294 new rooms bringing the total room count in the hotel to 1098.

The hotel, which opened 804 rooms in Tower 1 in November 2012, will offer 1608 rooms across the two towers when complete.

On June 1, 1350 rooms will be operational and on September 1, the hotel will reach the final count of 1608 rooms, a spokesperson told Hotelier Middle East.

There will also be two new food and beverage outlets in Tower 2, which is identical in design to Tower 1.

One is rumoured to be a Latin bar, while at the top of the hotel, the 72nd floor may be operated as a function space for hire.

“We are imagining amazing parties and weddings and perhaps even pop-up restaurants,” said the spokesperson, although the use of the space is yet to be confirmed.

JW Marriott Marquis Dubai already operates 13 bars and restaurants, including Prime 68, GQ Bar Dubai, Tong Thai, Positano and Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar.
