Skift Take

Marriott's first Marquis brand outside of the U.S. has left American style at home by placing the 800+ hotel rooms at the top of a tower.

The world’s tallest hotel, JW Marriott Marquis, is expected to open its doors to guests in December this year.

Dubai is home to the world’s top three tallest structures — the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa; the world’s tallest residential building, Princes Tower; and, soon, the world’s tallest hotel, JW Marriott Marquis.

The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, or DTCM, in Dubai has checked the hotel and has classified it as the tallest worldwide.
