HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's first JW Marriott hotel is set to open in Ha Noi this year, with the aim of becoming a regional MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) hub as a catalyst for promoting the country's tourism sector.
The 450-room nine-storey JW Marriott Hotel Ha Noi will be located next to the National Convention Center in the city's Tu Liem District, about 7.5km west of central Ha Noi.
The hotel will have 2,150 square metres of space, including a 1,000 square-metre grand ballroom, a 450 square-metre ballroom and five meeting rooms.
The Ha Noi property will be Marriott's third in Viet Nam. A 271-room JW Marriott Resort is scheduled to open in central Da Nang City in 2013.. — VNS
