DWTC expands accommodation options with two new hotels

With two new Accor Group hotels set to open their doors for business in mid-July as part of the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) complex, the range of accommodation options available in and around the DWTC's Dubai International Convention Centre (DICC) is set to increase significantly.

"With the DWTC, the most sought after conference and exhibition venue in the region, the need to provide ideally located accommodation options within the complex is a priority. With the Novotel World Trade Centre and Ibis World Trade Centre hotels scheduled to open soon, that need will be more than fulfilled," said DWTC director general, Mubarak bin Fahad.

"This development further strengthens DWTC's standing as a one-stop shop for organisers of meetings, incentives, conferences, exhibitions, seminars and similar events whether regional or international in scope," added Fahad. "The two new properties in combination with the Dubai International Hotel Apartments, which offers 492 fully-furnished apartments in one, two or three bedroom configurations, will provide organisers, visitors and participants with a wide selection of on-site accommodation," remarked Fahad.

The 412-room Novotel World Trade Centre hotel is slotted to fill a gap that was present in the upper mid-scale range. The hotel, which is connected directly to the DWTC's Exhibition and Convention Centres, features comfortable and tastefully-decorated rooms, eight soundproof meeting rooms equipped with the latest technical equipment, a state of the art health club and a range of dining and leisure options.

The 210-room Ibis World Trade Centre hotel, which is also connected to the Exhibition and Convention Centre concourse, presents a new concept in the region, as it is the first internationally affiliated business economy hotel to be opened in the Middle East providing top quality accommodation at a fair price.

"ACCOR is proud to be the leader in introducing new accommodation concepts in the area. The expertise of the ACCOR Hotels World Trade Centre's team, coupled with the ideal location both properties enjoy, makes a perfect mix for offering international standard accommodation at competitive prices."
