Marriot, an American diversified hospitality company that manages and franchises a broad portfolio of hotels and related lodging facilities, plans to reopen its five-star JW Marriott hotel in Tripoli. The hotel opened briefly before the Revolution and is now expected to be re-opening sometime next year.
The 307-room, 34-floor tower, which is owned by Korean company Daewoo E&C and the Libyan government, will open its doors after undergoing repair and maintenance work to fix damage incurred during the uprising.
The deluxe hotel is located 30 minutes from Tripoli International Airport, in the main business district of the capital close to the Burj Tripoli, the Corinthia Bab Africa hotel and the Dhat al Imad office complex. It offers 370 guest rooms with sea view, lounges and restaurants, meeting rooms, ballroom, a fitness centre and Saray Spa. It is hoped that increased tourism will benefit from a resurgence in luxury hotels, as well as increased employment opportunities for Libyan nationals.
