The iconic Address Downtown – the flagship property of Emaar Hospitality Group – has re-opened its doors to guests after two-and-a-half years of significant renovations.
The luxury property now features new F&B concepts – Turkish restaurant The Galliard and American steakhouse STK – additional rooms and suites, The Spa at Address Downtown, and a brand-new interior design.
With 220 guest rooms and suites, several of them opening to spectacular views of the iconic Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain, the hotel is said to reveal even more new features in the coming days.
Olivier Harnisch, Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, commented: “Address Downtown holds a very special place in the hearts of all discerning travellers and guests. Defined by its central location overlooking Burj Khalifa, the hotel has consistently secured the world’s leading tourism and hospitality awards.
“With the opening of Address Downtown, Emaar is bringing to life a crowning glory in its hotel assets. Working with world-leading designers and consultants, the all-new Address Downtown ushers in an exceptional lifestyle choice and set new standards in luxury hospitality. The hotel will continue to uphold its distinctive positioning of ‘where life happens’.”
Towering high at 302 metres and 63 levels, guests to the Address Downtown have uninterrupted views of The Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa. Its 220 rooms and suites include 16 choices from a ‘Premier Fountain View Room’ to ‘Signature Spa Suite Fountain View’, all opening to spectacular views of the Dubai skyline. Guests can also opt for ‘Twin’ rooms that connect through a foyer.
‘The Restaurant’ concept – designed in the style of an avant-garde French apartment with inspired spaces from the Living Room to the Kitchen – is now open at the property.
Also open is the ‘Lounge’, a social oasis with spectacular views, serving a la carte meals to lighter fare and afternoon tea; and the all-time favourite ‘Katana’, which brings robatayaki-style cuisine to life, offering a uniquely delicious and expert blend of Japanese tradition and modern fare.
The ‘Cigar Lounge’ offers guests a range of cigars that is as extensive as it is exquisite, including sought-after limited editions from some of Cuba and South America’s finest cigar houses, while the ‘Club Lounge’, accessible exclusively to guests staying in the Club Suites and Rooms, offers international cuisine and complimentary beverages in a premium ambience all through the day.
Soon to open are ‘The Galliard’ bringing authentic Turkish flavours and inventive expressions of French and Spanish cuisine and ‘STK’, an ingenious interpretation of an American steakhouse in the form of a chic, contemporary lounge.
‘Neos’, the ultra-luxury lounge on Level 63, assuring guests a never-before ambience, and ‘Zeta’, an al fresco outlet at the lobby level offering California- and Asia-inspired cuisine and signature beverages, will also open shortly.
Meanwhile ‘The Spa at Address Downtown’ has nine treatment rooms, a hammam, steam rooms and relaxation areas, complemented by a state-of-the-art, 24-hour Fitness Centre offering personal training services. With an infinity pool cascading over five tiers with direct Burj Khalifa views and relaxation areas, The Spa at Address Downtown is the ultimate getaway for guests in the heart of the city.
The new interiors are said to bear the hallmarks of great public spaces throughout the world. The lobby offers the unexpected with fine architectural detailing and hand-crafted accessories. Each aspect of the hotel has been designed to lend distinctive individuality.
