JW Marriott Hotel Dubai located in Deira to suspend operations, and will close permanently on Sunday, May 12, 2019. The hotel is no longer accepting any new reservations on Marriott.com, or the app.
The JW Marriott Hotel, Dubai was a Category 4 Marriott Hotel redeemable at 25,000 Bonvoy points, and it was conveniently located close to the Dubai International Airport (DXB). It used to be a popular choice for business travelers back in the day.
The hotel officially opened its doors on October 6, 1993, and we’re sad to see it close down after running successfully for 26 years. We’re still not sure of the reason for the closure. Both Gulf Business and Hotelier Middle East reported the news. There were ownership disputes in the past, but they may have been partially resolved in 2015.
Note, this hotel is not to be confused with JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, one of the world’s tallest standalone hotel buildings, located in Business Bay, Downtown Dubai.
Recently, the Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi also closed down in less than 1 year of its opening.
Edit: Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi reopened 2 months after possible shut down
It’s always sad to see the closure of brand hotels, which reduces our options for points redemptions. But Marriott has a large number of hotels expected to open in UAE and the Middle East. I’m outlining a few below to look forward to:
- Marriott – The Palm (Dubai)
- St. Regis – The Palm (Dubai)
- The Dubai EDITION, Jumeirah Beach (Dubai)
- Dubai Marriott Hotel, City Walk (Dubai)
- Marriott Executive Apartments, City Walk (Dubai)
- Courtyard By Marriott, Dubai Cultural Village (Dubai)
- Courtyard By Marriott, Dubai Studio City (Dubai)
- Courtyard By Marriott, Dubai Telecom (Dubai)
- Residence Inn By Marriott, Al Jaddaf (Dubai)
- Marriott Hotel, Ras Al Khaimah (Ras Al Khaimah)
- Aloft Dubai Airport
- Aloft Dubai Raffa
- Aloft Dubiotech Dubai
- Aloft IMPZ Dubai
- Aloft Sharjah
- Element Dubai Airport
