US hotel chain Marriott International has signed a
management deal with Abu Dhabi’s Real Estate Group, a subsidiary of Bloom
Properties, to manage two properties in the UAE capital.

The company will operate the 315-room Abu Dhabi Marriott
Hotel and a 64-unit serviced apartment hotel, Marriott said in an emailed
statement Tuesday.

The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The properties, which are scheduled to open in 2014, will
form part of the 16,200 sq m Bloom Central development in Abu Dhabi and will
swell Marriott’s UAE portfolio to nine hotels.

Marriott last week said it would open three hotels in Doha in
the second quarter of 2011, in a bid to tap into Qatar’s growing tourism
market.
