The UAE's largest five-star hotel experienced an inventory increase of 22 per cent during the year, and yet occupancies across its 1,608 rooms remained constant and in excess of 73 per cent.
JW Marriott Marquis Dubai general manager, Bill Keffer, said that the results were a significant achievement, considering the increase in supply of new luxury hotels regionally: "Supply in the city rose by 6.7 per cent, whilst overall demand grew by only 4.3 per cent. This is a stark contrast to JW Marriott Marquis, which witnessed an increase in demand of more than 12 per cent in 2015. As a result, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai continued to drive room revenues by 13 per cent over the course of the year. These positive figures further cement our position as a market leader in the region."
