Next review set: Abu Dhabi

Ironically, while I was sitting in my hotel room in Rome late at night watching Sex and the City 2, I received the most fantastic invitation to join the brand new Marriott Hotel Al Forsan in of all places where the movie I was watching was based: Abu Dhabi! What a coincidence! Whether it was the result of watching the movie -- or whether it was the thought of going to a still exotic destination in the Middle East -- I immediately said yes! So, in three weeks, when the Marriott Hotels & Resorts will have their Grand Opening of the Al Forsan in Abu Dhabi, and yours truly will be there.
Located in the heart of Al Forsan International Sports Resort, prominent for their stables, this 400 room property will provide hotel guests with every need, including six on-property restaurants and a full-service spa.
On this particular trip, TEDx will be partnering to provide an innovation inspired TED Talks Salon at the Al Forsan property. The two speakers will be French-Tunisian artist eL Seed (who blends the historic art of Arabic calligraphy with graffiti) and architect / ecotourism specialist Aziza Chaouni, who focuses on projects that integrate architecture and landscape.
