"We are confident that the JW Marriott Hotel Kuwait City and the Courtyard by Marriott hotel that is currently under construction will be welcome additions to the hospitality infrastructure in Kuwait City.
"Marriott is today a global brand and we aim to reach out to customers across the continents. We have been able to make great strides in the Middle East and our excellent standards in the region have truly set a trend. We believe in identifying and understanding the needs of our customers and guests and working closely on the ground level to fulfill these in coordination with effective local partnerships."
