Over the course of a year and a half, Marriott International has brought three new well known luxury hotel brands to Jordan, including a W Hotel and a St. Regis in Amman and a Luxury Collection property, the Al Manara, in Aqaba.
On all three of the new properties, parent company Marriott partnered with the Jordanian subsidiary of Abu Dhabi-based real estate investment firm Eagle Hills to bring these projects to fruition.
The 280-room W Amman opened in April 2018, while the Luxury Collection’s 207-room Al Manara opened in October 2019. The 206-room St. Regis is the latest of the three, opening recently in September 2019.
Marriott has been aggressively expanding its portfolio of brands and properties. In addition to acquiring international competitors such as Starwood, through which it inherited the W Hotels brand, and Luxury Collection, it is also launching new properties across the region and the globe at a rapid pace.
The company currently has over 100 properties under development around the world and expects to grow its portfolio by 45% by the end of 2023.
