Ideally located in the heart of the UAE’s capital, the hotel and apartments, developed by Bloom Holding, give guests the amenities they need to achieve a brilliant stay in Abu Dhabi.

Presenting a completely new hotel experience for today’s modern traveller, the 5 star Marriott Hotel Downtown Abu Dhabi is an exciting new travel destination that exhilarates the mind through a marriage of sophisticated design and innovative functionality. 315 spacious guest rooms and suites feature modern amenities and smart technologies throughout while the hotel’s extensive meeting space is tailored to today’s meeting requirements. Supplemented by unique dining and wellness options, the hotel is set to become a local hub for business and leisure as well as a global MICE destination.
“At Marriott Hotels, everything we do is guided by our belief that travel expands the mind and triggers new and creative ways of thinking”, said David Lance, General Manager of Marriott Hotel and Marriott Executive Apartments Downtown Abu Dhabi. “We want to push the boundaries of innovation with a combination of high tech and high touch services to connect with our guests and create an environment that inspires.”
Marriott Downtown Abu Dhabi is set to become a five-star dining destination in Abu Dhabi providing guests with a variety of dining experiences. Inspired by the community and headed up by expert chefs, the concepts are unique to the city. JW Steakhouse brings Marriott’s signature steakhouse concept to the capital, offering a contemporary take on the classic American steakhouse with premium quality cuts enhanced by varying dry-ageing techniques and paired with classic steakhouse sides. Kuzbara offers a market place atmosphere for breakfast, lunch and dinner with live and interactive cooking stations serving the best of the coriander trail with influences from Asian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Central Grounds is the ideal coffee shop and meeting hub that offers free Wi-Fi access throughout, as well as convenient on-the-go cuisine bites, quality and innovative coffee methods and gourmet freakshakes.
Velocity is an energetic and sophisticated Sport, Lifestyle Bar & Restaurant offering a menu focused on burgers, lobster and specialty wings served alongside draft and craft hops and home infused creations. Velocity will be home to live sports broadcasts and DJs, also offering flexible seating options to enable a smooth transition from sports bar to late night music venue.
The hotel provides a range of wellness options for travellers with the Saray Spa & Health Club offering six individual treatment rooms, a Fitness Centre and rooftop swimming pool. The Saray Spa due to open later this year takes inspiration from the timeless rituals and invigorating treatments of the authentic caravanserai: places of rest and recovery on the Silk Road. In combination with today’s belief in genuine results and high-quality natural products, the Saray Spa will be an urban sanctuary offering the best of both worlds.
Meetings and events are expertly catered for within the hotel’s 1500 square metres of flexible meeting space, which includes 21 conference rooms for intimate meetings to large scale conferences. The Grand Ballroom (522 sqm) can accommodate up to 560 people for events ranging from traditional business meetings to extravagant weddings and social events.
