The historic property is not only the first JW Marriott in the city and the 3rd in the Country after the JW Mumbai and the JW Chandigarh, but also the first Marriott Property in the Asia Pacific region to undergo a conversion. Nestled in the heart of the city at Senapati Bapat Road, JW Marriott Pune opened doors to its patrons welcoming them to appreciate and be a part of the brand change.
The spectacular conversion launch saw the presence of Rajeev Menon, Area Vice President for the Indian Sub-Continent, Maldives, & Australia for Marriott International Inc. Speaking at the occasion Mr.Menon said, “We are happy to announce the conversion of Pune Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre to a JW Marriott property. The property always reflected luxury with world-class amenities and elegance that are significant to a JW Marriott brand. The hotel, which was the 500th Marriott property, was a HALO hotel under the Marriott portfolio. Through the 2.5 years of its functioning the hotel has managed to effortlessly seam its way past the MHRS brand guidelines, thus proving to be a befitting choice for a JW conversion. This change will see Marriott International come together to ensure that we surpass the hotels hospitality touchpoints making it more luxury driven, promising and splendid.”
