The Rezidor Hotel Group announced the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Downtown will open early 2011 to join the company's Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek, Radisson Blu Residence Dubai Marina and Radisson Blu Dubai Media City.With 220 rooms, we think the group's latest addition is the ultimate destination to explore the city, including Dubai Mall, one of the world's biggest shopping center, and Souk Al Bahar, with 22 restaurants, cafés and lounges, as well as its promenade along the waterfront, in walking distance.
Six miles from Dubai International Airport, Radisson Blu Hotel will have 198 contemporary rooms and 22 suites. We recommend booking one with views of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper at 2,716 feet. During your stay, the restaurant will feature all-day dining, alongside the rooftop pool bar, pub and specialty restaurant. Enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet access, as well as the spa and fitness center. Business travelers will be well accommodated, with six conference rooms, two board rooms and a business center, featuring a lounge.
Be sure to explore Business Bay, a 20-million-square-foot "city within a city," adjacent to the hotel, including residential towers, office buildings, restaurants, boutiques and sporting facilities, also set for completion by early 2011. We recommend Dubai World Trade Center, Dubai International and Exhibition Center and Dubai International Financial Center, minutes from the hotel by car.
