W Hotels Announces Dubai Property Plans

W Hotels March 6 announced a plan to build its first hotel in the Middle East, W Dubai Festival City. Plans call for the property to be located on the banks of the Dubai Creek, which is within the Dubai Festival City (which, in turn, is within Dubai's Central Business District). The property will have 250 guest rooms, among these 30 suites, and will include many of W's traditional amenities: feather top mattress, 350-thread-count cotton sheets, goose-down comforters and 24-hour signature "Whatever/Whenever" service. There will also be 100 additional luxury loft suites. Visit [www.whotels.com].
