Marriott International has signed a franchise agreement with West F5 Investments to open the new-build Marriott Marquis Dubai within the Jewel of the Creek complex in Dubai.

Scheduled to open in March 2024, the hotel and serviced apartments are part of the first phase of the new destination developed by Dubai Developments.

The property, leased by West F5 Investments, will be operated by Dubai-based independent hospitality management company Aleph Hospitality.

Marriott Marquis Dubai will comprise 590 keys consisting of 434 hotel guest rooms and suites, as well as 156 serviced apartments.

The property will feature business and leisure facilities including six food and beverage outlets, conference and meeting facilities, a business centre, gym, spa facilities as well as swimming pools in each tower.

In addition, the development will include a large retail area with a promenade on the Dubai Creek and a Marina with 85 berths.

The mixed-used hospitality complex Jewel of the Creek is located on the north shore of Dubai Creek. It is within walking distance of Deira City Centre, Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club and City Centre Metro Station, as well as a short drive from Dubai International airport.

Dubai remains one of the most desired destinations in the world and we continue to see strong demand to further diversify our portfolio in the city where we currently have more than 50 properties in operation.”
