Rezidor Opens The Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Downtown

The Rezidor Hotel Group has announced that its seventh property in the UAE, Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Downtown, is now open.

Located on the upper floors of a mixed-use building, the new first class and full service hotel is walking distance from the Dubai Mall and ten kilometres from the international airport. Apart from 220 contemporary rooms and 22 suites, the hotel also features meeting facilities including six conference rooms, two board rooms, and a business centre. For leisure seekers the property has a swimming pool and a gym.

"The opening of this property is a further sign for the positive and optimistic atmosphere within our industry which we also felt during AHIC and ATM. The markets are bouncing back and we see RevPAR increasing – fuelled by both occupancy and rate," said Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor.

Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Downtown offers a range of food and beverage outlets. Lemon Pepper restaurant specializes in international cuisine and local delicacies, serving up a varied menu throughout the day. Infiniti Bar & Terrace provide a spot for relaxing, while the outdoor terrace bar is ideal for catching some sun and enjoying views of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Dubai Downtown is the new hub of Dubai, hosting attractions such as the tallest tower in the world, the world's largest mall, Dubai Mall, the waterfall promenade and Souk Al Bahar. The hotel also borders Business Bay, a mega project covering an area of six million square meters, which is designed to be the new centre of Dubai commerce. Key destinations close by include Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai International and Exhibition Centre, and Dubai International Financial Centre (the world's fastest growing international financial centre).
