Hear this and hear it well, over a hundred room(180 plus) has already been booked and paid for in CASH ( over a Million dollars in cash was paid as deposit) at the prestigious JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, Business Bay, Dubai 121000 UAE alone. We don't know if other hotels would have enjoyed the same largesse. JW has 684 rooms & 120 suites on 72 floors.
The hotel which was opened not too long ago from what we have heard is where the wedding /reception etc would take place. It has the largest meeting room in the whole of Dubai. One of the ballroom measuring 14,477 Sq ft and has a maximum capacity of 1,548. So apart from a few, who would be staying at other accommodations, some of the guests and family members etc are all booked to stay at the hotel. It is a one-stop package for everything. We hear a Nigerian event planner got the deal and the company would be working hand-in-hand with the exceptionally trained wedding planners from the JW Marriott.
