In only ten years, the hotel is endorsed as an icon of savvy service.

The JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro, located on Copacabana Beach, completes ten years of operation in Brazil. Specialized in business and diplomatic stays, this Rio de Janeiro hotel sets a standard for service and is considered one of the best five-star hotels in Rio de Janeiro.

The building, designed by architect Paulo Casé, was acquired by Marriott after the bankruptcy of the original construction company. Marriott foresaw a great potential for business tourism in Rio de Janeiro. This hotel in Rio de Janeiro was adapted in 2001 and had its opening with 245 luxury accommodations and the most modern hotel infrastructure.

"In only ten years, the hotel is endorsed as an icon of savvy service,” says Santiago Sagaz, general manager of JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro. “Our quality of service is appreciated by executive guests and also for those visiting Rio de Janeiro for leisure. City dwellers have increasingly visited our restaurants, enjoyed our honeymoon packages or held social events. Our apartments have housed princes, presidents of large companies, artists, and in March welcomed U.S. President Obama and his family passing through Rio de Janeiro." Another distinguished guest was Brazil President Dilma Rousseff, who stayed at the hotel during the presidential campaign.

Over the years, this luxury hotel in Rio de Janeiro has received a number of awards and accolades. Among the many international awards received, the World Travel Awards may be the most important. The JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro received the award in Brazil's Leading Hotel category. In 2010, the JW Marriot Hotel Rio de Janeiro received recognition from Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the 500 best hotels in the world.

"We can not forget that the hotel was chosen last year as the second best company to work for in Rio de Janeiro and one of the top 100 in Brazil, according to the Great Place to Work Institute," says Sagaz. "This recognition shows that we are on track for excellence in customer service and to become a key pillar of the Marriott Hotel collection.”
