Marriott International Signs Agreement to Bring JW Marriott Brand to São Paulo
Marriott International, Inc. today announced that it has signed an agreement to debut JW Marriott Hotel São Paulo in Parque da Cidade, a Class A, LEED-certified mixed-use complex located in one of the city’s main and burgeoning business districts. JW Marriott Hotel São Paulo will be converted from an existing luxury property and is anticipated to serve as Marriott International’s first luxury hotel in São Paulo. The hotel is expected to open in Q2 2022.
Strategically located along Avenida Nações Unidas within proximity to major business and exclusive entertainment areas in the city, JW Marriott Hotel São Paulo is expected to feature 258 spacious, well-appointed guestrooms, a full-service restaurant, a lounge/bar, a luxurious spa with five treatment rooms, an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and other high-end amenities. In addition, the hotel will offer six meeting spaces totaling more than 1,000m², making it a prime destination for business meetings and conferences.
The growing presence of global companies in the area has fueled corporate demand for hotels and continues to position Parque da Cidade and São Paulo as a major global and tourism hub, which will be further bolstered by iconic brands such as JW Marriott.
