THE two Accor properties at the Dubai World Trade Centre, part of the Dubai International Conference and Exhibition Centre complex, specifically target business travellers on an ongoing basis.
Noted for comfortable, modern rooms and excellent value for money, the two hotels have been designed to deliver quality at an affordable price, a formula that is now seeing many other brands follow suit.
Both are located in the heart of the city near Sheikh Zayed Road, just 20 minutes from Dubai International Airport and Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The Ibis World Trade Centre is the first internationally affiliated business economy hotel in the Middle East, and is based on a simple concept: a good night’s sleep at a better price; comfort and service 24 hours a day, quality commitment, and the assurance of peace and quiet that a businessperson needs. It offers 210 standard double rooms at extremely affordable rates, by paring down facilities to the businessperson’s essential needs. Facilities and services that are infrequently used have been altered to maximize the hotel’s value-for-money ratio.
Each room is equipped with closet, large bed, desk and chair, satellite TV, data port connection, wi-fi, soundproof windows, security locks and more. Regular shuttle buses to various exciting locations such as malls, beaches and places of historical interest are on offer.
Four food and beverage outlets are available, including Le Gourmand, a laid-back buffet restaurant, Italian restaurant CuboPasta and more.
Close by is the deluxe four-star Novotel World Trade Centre Dubai, a modern and highly attractive property ideal for leisure and business activities. Its concept is about creating a harmonious and contemporary space where guests ‘feel at home’.
The hotel’s 412 rooms and 13 suites are spacious and thoughtfully arranged, equipped with closet, large bed, living area with sofa bed, desk and chair, bathroom, interactive colour TV, high speed Internet connection, safe, mini-bar, plus coffee and tea making facilities.
The in-house Business Centre offers an extensive range of services. The hotel comprises eight expansive meeting rooms, each providing natural light and are soundproof with fully equipped state-of-the-art audio-visual and video-conferencing facilities, as well as secretarial services and catering options and a meeting venue that can accommodate up to 150 people.
