Less than a week until JW Marriott Dubai hotel in Deira shuts down
Hotel operations will be suspended starting midnight on 12 May due to factors that Marriott says are "beyond our control"
The American hospitality giant Marriott International-owned JW Marriott Dubai hotel in Deira – a 351-key four-star hotel – will suspend operations starting 12 May, according to a statement posted on the hotel’s website.
“Marriott International has found it necessary to suspend operations at the JW Marriott Dubai in Deira due to circumstances beyond our control that have interfered with our ability to continue to operate the hotel," the statement reads.
“The hotel will not be open for business as of midnight (GST) on Sunday, 12 May 2019."
Located close to Dubai International Airport (DXB), which received 22.2 million passengers in the first quarter of 2019, JW Marriott Dubai in Deira features 2,880m2 of meeting and conference spaces, and 11 restaurants and lounges.
The news comes weeks after Marriott International revealed plans to add 19 properties and more than 3,000 rooms to its Middle East and Africa portfolio in 2019.
The company’s JW Marriott brand will open the JW Marriott Muscat Convention Centre in Oman this year, marking its entry in the sultanate, according to a company statement revealing its property portfolio expansion plans in the region in 2019.
