LUXURY hotel brand W Hotels Worldwide is to operate a 350-room luxury hotel at Dubai Festival City.
W Dubai Festival City will be at the heart of the Festival City’s 245,000 sq m ‘Marsa Al Khor’ (Harbour of the Creek) development and will be the contemporary waterfront community’s hospitality centrepiece.
The W Dubai Festival City, scheduled to open in 2008, will be the brand’s first Middle East property. “The commitment of W Hotels is another major coup for us and again gives our Creekside development first-mover hospitality advantage,” says Dubai Festival City CEO Omar Al Futtaim.
W Dubai Festival City will be designed by world renowned, award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel. It will be surrounded by a waterfront Quay, a Central Park, exclusive waterfront homes, state-of-the-art offices and an array of chic cafes, clubs, and restaurants.
