Marriott International has expanded its presence in Germany with the opening of second JW Marriott brand property in the country.

JW Marriott Hotel Berlin has been converted and rebranded from Hotel Berlin Central District. The opening marks the completion of the first stage in the property’s transformation.

The hotel’s guestrooms will undergo full renovation as part of the transformation, which is set to complete by 2025.

Design practice El Ghoneimi led the interior designing of the property.

JW Marriott Hotel Berlin is owned by investment firm Al Rayyan Tourism Investment Company (ARTIC).

Located on the central Stauffenbergstraße street, the hotel features 505 rooms including a presidential suite.

The property boasts eight dining destinations led by chef Friedemann Heinrich.

Among others, dining destinations include JW Steakhouse, the Berlin Baking Company, as well as Lobby Lounge Bar and the Cigar Lounge.

JW Marriott Hotel Berlin boasts more than 48 event spaces covering a total of more than 6,290m2, including a ballroom with seating capacity for more than 2,300 guests.

Other guest amenities include a 347m2 spa featuring a swimming pool, sauna, steam bath, and two treatment rooms as well as two fitness centres.

JW Marriott global brand leader Bruce Rohr said: “JW Marriott blends a legacy of extraordinary hospitality with a modern commitment to mindfulness and well-being that is so important to today’s luxury traveller.

“JW Marriott Hotel Berlin brings these pillars to life – from its JW Garden where guests can harvest their own herbs, to its not one, but two fitness centres and rejuvenating spa – to offer a holistic, wellness-forward stay.”

In June last year, Marriott opened JW Marriott Frankfurt, its first JW Marriott property in Germany.
