The Taipei Marriott Hotel has recently opened in Taiwan marking the first foray into the country for the brand
The hotel is the first five-star property in the Dazhi area of Taipei, the capital’s newest commercial hub, and is part of the largest integrated destination complex in the city. With interiors by Yabu Pushelberg, it houses 320 guest rooms, a modern convention centre, five restaurants, spa facilities, outdoor pool and a Grand Ballroom.
Interiors incorporate a neutral colour palette of ivory, cream and grey, accentuated by unobstructed views of Taipei through the floor-to-ceiling windows in every room. Double vanities and rain showers have been included in each bathroom to enhance relaxation.
As a part of Marriott's "Green Hotel Development" initiative, indigenous shrubbery and flowering plants can be found throughout the grounds interspersed with pieces of art and sitting areas. Inspired by the nearby butterfly biosphere reserve on Mt. Jiannan, an aluminium sculpture named "Butterflies" and created by Spanish artist Manolo Valdes, sits in the centre of the landscape to serve as a tribute to nature and the arts.
