Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City: UAE's largest Holiday Inn to open in 2017

Posted: 08-Dec-16 12:25

The largest Holiday Inn in the UAE is set to open in late 2017. The Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City, a 520-room property, will be located in the popular waterfront community of Festival City, and will boast numerous amenities, such as a rooftop grill, fitness centre, and conference centre. The property will connect to Dubai Festival City Mall, where guests can enjoy a number of popular restaurants and retail outlets.

Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City: UAE's largest Holiday Inn to open in 2017

InterContinental Hotel Groups (IHG) and Al-Futtaim have signed an agreement which will bring the largest Holiday Inn in the UAE to Dubai’s Festival City. The 520-room property will be the fifth property in partnership between IHG and Al-Futtaim and will be completed in late 2017.

Dubai’s Festival City is a mixed-use waterfront community with some of the city’s finest residential, commercial, and retail properties. The hotel will connect directly to Dubai Festival City Mall, which is home to a wide array of restaurants and popular international retail outlets. Only two kilometres from Dubai International Airport, the hotel will benefit from both business and leisure consumers.

Known throughout the world as a city of luxury and wealth, Dubai boasts a large number of high-end hotels and resorts, but few mid-market hotels. As tourism to Dubai has increased in recent years, demand for mid-market properties has increased as well. IHG feels that given Holiday Inn’s universal appeal and well-known brand, with hotels in over 70 countries around the world, it was a natural choice for Festival City.

Holiday Inn Festival City will feature a rooftop grill, a health club, an adjoining café and restaurant, as well as four meeting rooms and a conference centre with seating for 200 people. Rooms feature modern design and the modern amenities that guests of Holiday Inn are accustomed to, such as free internet and a highly regarded loyalty programme.

The Festival City property joins the InterContinental Dubai Festival City and the business-oriented Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City in the community. The three properties will cater to a wide range of guests.

IHG and Al Futtaim have also recently opened a massive 5,000 square metro arena adjacent to the InterContinental Dubai Festival City and the Crown Plaza Dubai Festival City. The Festival Aren, located on the grounds of Al Badia residential area, will host large-scale events of up to 5,000 people. The arena boasts a private entrance and can be customized to host any exhibition, conference, banquet, trade show, or social events such as concerts or festivals.
