Why on earth do you insert the video here?? I don't think it is relevant to this article at all! What happened to the editor?

Dear SF_T,

The video has been included as this is a news item about the opening of a newly-completed hotel and the film was released by JW Marriott following it's opening celebration to give a flavour of their latest project. It is therefore fitting to this particular article.

JW Marriott opens first of 59 hotels outside North America, the 335m-high Marquis Dubai 

The Archgroup Consultants-designed JW Marriott Marquis Dubai hotel has now opened for business in the United Arab Emirates. At 355m in height, the opulent business hotel holds the title of the tallest hotel in the world although international provider of building data Emporis has released a report which highlights the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong by Kohn Pedersen Fox as the 484m-tall tower which offers the highest beds in the world on the 117th floor of 118.

The JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is the first of 59 hotels in the JW Marriott family to be constructed outside North America and totals 72 storeys. It has been designed to appeal to the elite business market with capacity for large-scale corporate events of up to 1,000 delegates. All 77 floors of the tower are part of the hotel complex and enable attendees of business events to meet, stay and dine under the same roof while enjoying stunning panoramic views across Dubai.

High-end conference facilities are supported by 7,500 sq m of interior and exterior event space, including two ballrooms and a variety of dining experiences. The 9 restaurants on offer include an experimental sushi bar and steakhouse Prime 68, while the 5 bars and lounges offer everything from cocktails to wine while visitors watch the city buzzing below through the large window panes. Also on offer are the 4,000 sq m Saray Spa and Health Club and a pool deck on the 7th floor with a 30m swimming pool and Aqua Poolside Bar and Grill.

Marriott International President & CEO Arne Sorenson commented: “Dubai is an important destination for Marriott International as one of the world’s most exciting cities offering world-class facilities and infrastructure, central location in the region and future growth potential. Our expanding collection of world-class JW Marriott hotels offers accomplished travellers a one-of-a-kind luxury experience. The investment in this unique and visually stunning hotel is testament to the continued opportunities that lie ahead for the brand and company.”
