JW Marriot Marquis - My visit to the tallest hotel in the World


My last trip to the UAE was an exciting one, while staying at Fairmont the Palm, we ventured out and explored JW Marriott Marquis hotel where the bruv decided to spend a couple of nights.
JW Marriott Marquis is currently the tallest hotel in the world; so let's just say history was made here with family. Love them to bits #FamilyIsEverything


Reception



On entering the hotel, you walk into a massive reception space with large flower arrangements and very colourful ornaments.  The hotel is definitely gorgeous but it had more of a business vibe to it; It was missing the feeling I usually get when I walk into a family hotel but I still loved its ambience.


After check-in, which I have to say went very smoothly and swiftly, we went up to the room which was equally as gorgeous as the rest of the hotel. Definitely my kind of luxury :)





Bedroom







The bedroom has a good size free standing bath - I'm a sucker for free standing baths. hehe :) :)

JW Marriot Marquis provides a free shuttle to a few locations such as Mall of the Emirates and also Dubai Mall;  which is the biggest shopping mall in the world. The free shuttle is always a nice touch while exploring any city. Dubai mall is a 10 minute journey from the hotel which is very handy for shopping and dining. 


After check-in, we made our way down to Noodle house in Dubai mall. Their Thai Green curry is to die for......

Yummy - The way to my heart is definitely through a good Thai Green Curry :)

        


That ends my short review of the tallest hotel in the world. GoUAE #wholeNotherLevel.

I 'm already getting my excitement on as holiday season is nearly here again :):) check my blog in the next few weeks to find out where I'm off to next. xo

Tips for JW Marriot Marquis Hotel UAE:
- Taxi's to get to the hotel from the Airport cost us approx. 50AED about £9 for a 30 minute drive. (FYI - Taxis are very cheap in Dubai)
- Be prepared for the 500AED hotel holding deposit per night so it doesn't come as a surprise, the money doesn't leave your credit card but its held and available again approx. 48hrs after checkout.This is the norm in most hotels when you travel abroad.
- The Entertainer Dubai book gives you 1 night free when 1 night is purchased. Bargain.  https://www.theentertainerme.com/Travel
