New luxury hotel for Dubai's International Financial District

Posted: 14-Jun-16 09:44

Known for its luxury around the globe, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is about to add a new destination to its high-end hotel brand. The Dubai International Financial District will be open to Waldorf Astoria guests as early as 2017, expected to bring hundreds of hotel rooms, dining options and more to the busy Dubai destination.

New luxury hotel for Dubai's International Financial District

One of the biggest names in luxury accommodations in the world, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is poised to soon join the impressive location of the Dubai International Financial District. Breaking Travel News, a website that provides resources to industry professionals, just published details on the newly signed deal, as attributed to Dubai travel broadcaster Phil Blizzard.

According to the article, the mega hotel and resort company has signed off on a management agreement, opening up a property under the Waldorf Astoria brand name in the highly touted investment and capital gateway of the Middle East. The new hotel will add to an already impressive collection of more than two-dozen Waldorf Astoria properties that exist in places ranging from New York and Beijing to Amsterdam.

Carlos Khneisser, VP of development, Middle East and North African for Hilton Worldwide, says the decision to expand Waldorf Astoria to the location only makes sense:

“Sound fundamentals underpin our luxury story in the Middle East, where we have seen exceptional growth in locations tailored for both leisure and business travellers.”

Along with 247 hotel rooms, Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre will be a mixed-use property, also offering office space, plus retail and residential units. In addition, the soon to be branded property will also feature a series of meeting rooms and a grand ballroom.

Shehab Gargash, who represents the property owners, says the relationship will be a major boost to the area.

“It will offer business, as well as leisure travellers, new and compelling luxurious living option at the heart of Dubai’s major financial, business and commercial centres, with easy access to the largest shopping malls and a range of restaurants and entertainment.”

Khneisser adds that broadening out to the unique area is just another step in expanding the hotel and resort brand to a global audience.

“As an iconic luxury brand originating from New York, another centre of global finance, I am delighted that we will welcome Waldorf Astoria to this international hub.”

Situated about 10km away from Dubai International Airport, Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre should be open to hotel guests beginning in autumn 2017.
