Top business facilities

The Amal Ballroom at JW Marriott Dubai.

Located in Dubai's business district of Deira, the JW Marriott Hotel Dubai says it is committed to making each guest's stay a pleasure.

The 344-room hotel offers extensive services and facilities to business travellers aimed at making their trip "more effective, productive and comfortable on the road", said a hotel spokesperson.

"The two Executive Floors are complete with check-in facilities, a luxurious guest lounge and a fully-equipped business centre with Internet access.

"Catering to another sector of the travelling public, the Hotel is also designed to welcome physically challenged guests.

"The lifts include numbers in Braille; every area is accessible by gentle ramps; and bathrooms, including shower cubicles, in several guestrooms have been modified."

The unassuming exterior serves to increase the impact of the spacious warmly lit lobby which features the largest skylight in the Middle East, allowing natural daylight to flood in throughout the hotel.

The hotel offers over 31,000 sq ft of meeting and conference space, including two column free ballrooms each divisible into two and seven salons respectively. Adjacent independent reception areas are ideal for up to 34 persons. Eleven other flexible function rooms are also available along with state-of-the-art audiovisual.

The Griffins Health Club, on the fifth floor, provides two squash courts, a fully equipped Nautilus gym and Planet Cardio - the first cardiovascular workout room in Dubai.

There are separate men's and ladies' changing rooms each with sauna, steam room and whirlpool spa.

The hotel offers a variety of dining styles including the JW's Steakhouse, the best New York Steakhouse in Dubai, Cucina, the Italian kitchen specialising in trattoria cooking, and the Hofbrauhaus from Munich serving authentic German/Bavarian cuisine and beverage.

The other options include the Bamboo Lagoon serving Polynesian, Indonesian and Thai cuisine; Awafi Arabic Restaurant and Mays El Reem, the Lebanese restaurant.
