IntercityHotel débuts in Dubai at a prime location on the Jaddaf Waterfront
Yesterday, Sunday, the IntercityHotel Dubai Jaddaf Waterfront opened its doors in the metropolis and cultural centre of the region. This is the first IntercityHotel in the United Arab Emirates, and it offers all the benefits associated with the brand to business travellers and leisure visitors from every part of the world. Regardless of whether the purpose of their trip is to attend meetings or to explore the sights of a fascinating city, guests will now be able to enjoy the high level of comfort they would expect to find in an upper mid-range hotel.
In future, the hotel in Dubai will comprise two separate buildings housing a total of 201 modern rooms. The roof terrace will feature a pool complex complete with an AquaLounge and a children’s pool area. Further facilities include gyms, contemporary style restaurants and a Bistro Lounge. As is the case at all latest generation IntercityHotels, the striking interior design concept bears the signature of the Italian architect Matteo Thun.
“The IntercityHotel Dubai Jaddaf Waterfront occupies an outstanding position right on Dubai Creek,” said Thomas Willms, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality. “It represents a further successful step in the ongoing internationalisation of the IntercityHotel brand. We are very pleased to be able to establish a second location in Dubai with this convincing hotel concept in addition to our Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay.”
