London, July 12, 2011
Luxury hotel brand JW Marriott has announced the opening of its first hotel in Turkey under a management agreement with leading Turkish contractor Ozkar Insaat.
The 24-storey JW Marriott Hotel Ankara, designed in a rich palate of colored glass, is expected to quickly become a towering landmark in Turkey’s vibrant capital city.
Conveniently located in the heart of the political and business center of Ankara, the new 413-room hotel offers easy access from Ankara Esenboga Airport, convention and conference venues, Ankara culture and education centers and archaeological sites.
'The JW Marriott Hotel Ankara epitomizes the very best of the JW Marriott brand, one of the world’s fastest growing luxury hotel brands,' said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe.
“As we continue to grow our portfolio throughout Europe, we are eager to add more JW Marriott Hotels in premier destinations and gateway cities such as Ankara, and are confident that this spectacular hotel will attract discerning travelers and groups from all over the world,” she noted.
With more than 4,550 sq m of flexible meeting space, much of which boasts beautiful natural light, the JW Marriott Ankara is set to become a premier meetings and events center in the city, the official said.
To celebrate the launch, the JW Marriott Ankara is offering a special introductory rate for a deluxe room including breakfast for two and internet access from 329 TRY ($200) per night from August 1 to September 10, said McPherson.
'The 413 guestrooms offer the ultimate in relaxed elegance and luxury including bedding featuring 300-thread-count Turkish cotton linens, marble baths, separate showers, and the latest in-room technology including LED televisions.'
Boasting 75 executive rooms and 25 executive suites, executive level guests will have access to a lounge located on 22nd floor offering complimentary breakfast, all day snacks and beverage service, afternoon tea, evening hors d’ oeuvres and dessert, a business center and boardroom, she added.
A dazzling grand ballroom featuring 1,278 sq m of space with soaring ceilings and magnificent Czech crystal chandeliers is the ultimate location for any wedding or social event.
In addition, the hotel’s outdoor terrace is one of the largest outdoor function spaces in Ankara.-TradeArabia News Service
