The UAE's third Holiday Inn hotel opens in Dubai this month as part of a major Holiday Inn development programme in the Middle East and Africa.
The Holiday Inn Bur Dubai, which has already collected an international Excellence in Engineering Award, will become the 61st Holiday Inn property in the region, with another 15 Holiday Inn properties currently under development.
The hotel's general manager, Robert Rosetti, said: "In true Holiday Inn tradition, we will develop close links with the local community, and become a focal point for business, social and leisure activities."
The Holiday Inn Bur Dubai establishes the chain's presence on both sides of Dubai's creek, with the Holiday Inn Downtown already popular with business and leisure travellers.
Featuring a unique, Mediterranean-style atrium, with a grand marble staircase leading to the first floor, the Holiday Inn Bur Dubai has 240 beautifully designed guest rooms, including several suites, as well as an executive floor with its own lounge.
In-room facilities include multi-channel satellite TV with interactive facilities.
Diners have a choice of seven food and beverage outlets including three restaurants serving Italian, Lebanese and Mexican cuisine.
Another of the hotel's unique features is its range of rooftop facilities for guests and club members, including a health club, jogging track, outdoor swimming pool and bar, sauna, solarium, steam bath, massage and aerobics rooms.
Meeting and banqueting facilities include a ballroom for up to 450 delegates, for seminars, conferences, and social events.
