Muscat debut for JW Marriott

More upmarket hotel accommodation has arrived in the Omani capital via the Marriott International group with the opening last week of the JW Marriott Muscat.

It follows the opening of the 5-star Royal Tulip Muscat (BTN last week).

Set in the heart of Muscat’s new business hub within the sultanate's largest urban development project, Madinat Al-Irfan, the hotel is an integral part of the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct.

Directly linked to the centre and with 304 rooms and suites, it also provides access to key city landmarks including Muscat Old Town, the Royal Opera House, Old Souq and Mattrah Corniche.

The property features 2,500sq m of meeting and event space with natural daylight and equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology and access to the tailor-making “Events by JW” service.

This offers organisers multi-lingual and experienced event planners and tailored menus. The hotel also houses the largest Executive Lounge in Muscat and is the first to have an exclusive lounge for airline crew.

JW Marriott vice-president and global brand leader Mitzi Gaskins said: “The debut of the brand in Muscat marks an exciting milestone for us in the Middle East and Africa as we continue to grow our footprint and deliver our luxury experience.”
