Tripoli, 27 November 2021:
Tripoli’s landmark JW Marriot hotel is to fully reopen, its owners the Economic and Social Development Fund (ESDF) said on Thursday.
The ESDF said this comes within the framework of its contribution to the government’s ‘‘Revival of Life’’ policy. To this end, it reported that its chairman visited the hotel to follow up on maintenance work.
Initial preparations will be for the opening of the main conference halls, the restaurant, cafes and its affiliated facilities. This will be followed by a gradual operation of the hotel to its full potential, the ESDF reported.
