JW Marriott Plans to Reopen Tripoli Hotel
17/08/2013 13:22:00
The JW Marriott hotel in Tripoli to reopen soon

The JW Marriott hotel in Tripoli, which briefly opened its doors before the political unrest that started in 2011 that eventually ousted the Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi from power, is now expected to relaunch next year.

Announcing its second-quarter results this week, JW Marriott said its 307-room Tripoli property would reopen after undergoing repair and maintenance work to fix damage caused since 2011.

The 34-floor tower, which is owned by Korea's Daewoo E&C and the Libyan government, briefly opened for business in early 2011 before having to close down with the start of the anti-Gaddafi uprising. At the time it said that the safety and security of its guests and employees was its top priority and promised to continue to evaluate the situation.

The JW Marriott Hotel is a 5-star hotel located just 30 minutes from Tripoli International Airport. It is also located in the main business district of the capital, close to the Burj Tripoli, the Corinthia Bab Africa hotel and the Dhat al Imad office complex. It offers 370 guest rooms with sea view, stylish lounges and restaurants, meeting rooms, ballroom, fitness centre and Saray Spa.

The hotel at Haiy Al Abrajj , Al Teejani Street in the Libyan capital is conveniently located at the corniche overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with easy access to the city's main attractions, that is, - the Assaraya al-Hamra, the Medina, Ottoman classical statues and fountains, the Gurgi and Karamanli Mosques, the Arch of Marcus Aurelius, the Bazaar and local markets and souks, the Libyan National Museum Jamahiriya Museum.

Marriott also announced it is planning to open hotels in Ghana, Ethiopia and Rwanda next year, and aimed to have a total of 45 new properties in the Middle East and Africa by 2018, with 20,000 operating rooms by 2015.

The firm said that its RevPar (revenue per available room) rose by 10.6% in the second quarter of 2013 across the Middle East and Africa, with occupancy rates up 2% and average room rates up 6.8%.
