Marriott International has opened a new JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi, the brand’s third hotel to be launched in Asia and the first in Vietnam, within the two months after its recent launches in Bengaluru and New Delhi in India.

The 450-room and 75,000m² hotel, which is designed by Carlos Zapata Studio, is located in Hanoi’s new central business district and is adjacent to the National Convention Centre.

The new hotel includes six restaurant and bar outlets offering a variety of food, wine and crafted cocktails to travellers.

Dining venues include the French grill that serves seafood and prime cuts of steaks along with a variety of premium wines and spirits and a Chinese restaurant specialising in Cantonese fare (open in January 2014), as well as a JW cafe and an Antidote bar.

"Hanoi has earned itself a coveted spot as a must-visit destination for travellers."

The hotel also features 3,600m² meeting space for large corporate and association events and is well placed to cater for MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions).

JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi has 17 meeting rooms including two Ballrooms of 1,000m² and 480m² with extensive public foyers, while all meeting facilities are located on the ground floor with an entrance and parking.

JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts vice president and global brand manager Mitzi Gaskins said: "Hanoi has earned itself a coveted spot as a must-visit destination for travellers.

"Of the 30+ hotels in our current pipeline, 50% are in Asia, which speaks to our commitment to investing in dynamic markets like Vietnam."

Currently, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts includes 63 hotels in 24 countries and plans to expand to 88 properties in 31 countries by 2016.

Marriott International has about 3,700 properties in 74 countries and plans to double the size from 144 hotels to around 330 by 2017 with room growth from 47,318 to 96,684.
