Marriott International revealed last month that it will manage a new five-star 274-room JW Marriott hotel in Algiers under a management agreement reached with Societe de Development Hotelier. When opened in 2007, the JW Marriott Hotel Algiers will be Marriott International’s first property in Algeria. The beachfront hotel will be located 20 kilometers west of Algiers in a community called Clubs des Pins, which is about a 40-minute drive from the Algiers International Airport. The site will also include 5,000m² of office space. “We are very pleased to expand our presence in North Africa with this sensational hotel,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International. “Algeria has been a veritable cultural and commercial crossroads for centuries, and we are excited to be able to participate in its regeneration as a destination for tourists and business travellers alike. We are confident that our elegant yet understated JW Marriott brand, with its unique environments and unpretentious authenticity, will be very successful in Algiers.” Algeria is re-emerging as a tourist destination after a decade of civil strife. The country is set to see a moderate increase in its hotel room supply in the years ahead. Algeria already boasts properties managed by international chains such as Hilton, Sofitel and Sheraton all located in Algiers, with Sheraton set to open its second hotel offering, the Sheraton Oran Hotel & Towers, on September 1.
