Dubai gains Marriott

MARRIOTT is to be represented in an upscale manner at Dubai with the rebranding last week of the 52-storey Harbour Hotel & Residence at the entrance to Dubai Marina.  Following some modifications, primarily to its public space and reconfiguration of some rooms bringing the new room count to 232 rooms, the property will be rebranded the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites later this year and will be the first five-star Marriott-branded hotel in the city.  The agreement represents the second contract Marriott has reached with Emirates this year.  Earlier, the company signed an agreement with Emirates to operate the under-construction 1,614-room JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai. www.marriott.co.uk
