Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has partnered with Abdulsalam Alrafi Group LLC to open a new Sheraton hotel in Dubai, top business and leisure travel destination in the United Arab Emirates. The new Sheraton hotel will be opened in early 2014 and it will be included in a three-tower mixed-use building complex in the heart of Dubai’s commercial district, just across from the Dubai World Trade Center and the Dubai International Financial Center. The Dubai Mall, Jumeirah Beach and the Dubai Marina are only a few of the top Dubai attractions the new Sheraton will be close to.
Named Sheraton Dubai Sheikh Zayed Road Hotel, the new venue is only one in Sheraton’s plans of global expansion which include 60 new hotels with more than 20,000 to be in business in the next three years. The new Dubai hotel will feature 600 rooms, of which 480 guest rooms and 180 service apartments, dining, conference and leisure facilities, and all the signature amenities that define Sheraton’s brand – the all-white Sheraton Sweet SleeperÂ® bed, which meets AAA’s Five Diamond AwardÂ® criteria, the Sheraton Club Lounge and the Link@Sheraton with Microsoft communications hub.
The Sheraton Dubai Sheikh Zayed Road Hotel will be included in the Starwood Preferred GuestÂ® loyalty program. Starwood already operates 15 hotels in Dubai, including three Sheraton hotels and a total of 50 hotels throughout the Middle East.
