Marriott International to debut Edition brand in Dubai

Marriott International has announced plans for a second Edition hotel in the United Arab Emirates, to be located in Dubai.

Scheduled to open in 2018, the hotel will follow the expected 2016 debut of the Emirate’s first Edition property located in Abu Dhabi. Marriott International will manage the hotel under a long-term agreement and will work together with Dubai Properties on the project. 

The 258-room hotel will occupy a strategic beach front location on Jumeirah Beach Residence, providing easy access to leisure, retail, and entertainment and dining outlets on the 1.7 km-long promenade – The Walk at JBR, also developed by Dubai Properties.

The property will feature food and beverage outlets as well as business and leisure facilities including a spa, a beach club, meeting and special event space and a business centre. 

Alex Kyriakidis, president for Marriott International in the Middle East and Africa said: "Dubai remains one of the most important and vibrant destinations in the world, where we are delighted to announce our second Edition hotel to open in the Middle East. Following the iconic openings of London, Miami Beach and New York City, we couldn’t be more excited about the potential for this brand in the region."

The announcement was made last week by Marriott International, Ian Schrager and Dubai Properties.
