The Emirates-owned World’s Tallest Hotel continues to uphold its reputation as a multi award-winning ‘Destination of Exceptional Taste’, exceeding the 60-strong record garnered since its opening in 2013. Restaurants and bars at the JW Marriott Marquis received 6 accolades from acclaimed publications such as Food & Travel Arabia, Time Out Dubai and Shortlist. Rang Mahal was among the most awarded restaurants, operated by Michelin starred Chef Atul Kochhar, as was Prime68, an American steakhouse with panoramic views of the city.

“It’s very gratifying to be at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai,” said Bill Keffer, ‎General Manager. “We are just 5 months away from our fifth birthday and in those 5 years, we’ve enjoyed remarkable success. Operating the largest hotel in the UAE in terms of rooms and maintaining impressive occupancies is a testament to our team and these awards are icing on the cake. Even as times get more challenging, we retain a unique proposition in an ever-changing market. The new Dubai Water Canal has made our location even more attractive and Dubai continues to be a must-visit destination for travelers. With the support of DTCM and our owners Emirates, we will continue to succeed and will always strive to exceed expectations.”

The hotel’s 16 room Saray Spa also earned a coveted World Luxury Spa Award, and its meetings and events offerings continue to garner praise among industry experts. As the only hotel in the UAE that can host 1,000 delegates or more, the Dubai hotel has been named Dubai’s Leading Conference Hotel, Best Function Hotel and among the best business hotels in the world, due to its impressive and inspired downtown event space, restaurants and unique incentives.
