Sofitel announces the opening of its 5-Star flagship city hotel in Downtown Dubai on 1st May 2014

Sofitel Luxury Hotels continues to grow its impressive portfolio in the Middle East as it prepares for the opening of its artistic address in the heart of Dubai on May 1st, 2014. With a prime location in the heart of this vibrant city, Sofitel Dubai Downtown offers amazing views of Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building in the world – and the Arabian coast. Sofitel Dubai Downtown is the seventh hotel to open in Sofitel’s Middle East network, with two additional openings coming up in Jeddah and Riyadh.

The Sofitel Dubai Downtown has a privileged position in the heart of the city, right on Sheikh Zayed Road, across from Burj Khalifa. The hotel is opposite Dubai Mall metro station and just a few hundred meters from The Dubai Mall connected via an air-conditioned glass bridge. Enjoy all major business and leisure destinations Dubai has to offer and discover its revamped and amazing downtown area.

A magnificent addition to Dubai's 5-star luxury hotels, Sofitel Dubai Downtown design has been inspired by Victor Vasarely’s Op Art movement design and reflects Sofitel's passion for excellence and French art de vivre. A combination of geometric chic and an oasis of art, Sofitel Dubai Downtown is a fresh and unique property in the heart of the dynamic city.

“The Sofitel Dubai Downtown offers a piece of France in Dubai for luxury travelers,” said Christophe Landais, COO Accor HotelServices Middle East.  “This hotel gracefully blends French art de vivre with local Dubai culture, and is sure to attract discerning travelers as Sofitel Luxury Hotels’ portfolio grows continuously around the globe.”

The hotel’s 350 spacious rooms showcase Op Art design, stunning views of the Burj Khalifa and the coast. All rooms feature spacious marble bathrooms, deluxe French amenities such as Lanvin and Hermes along with Sofitel’s MyBed concept – an all-feather bed and extra light down duvet, free WI-FI and Nespresso coffee machine. The Hotel has a large variety of rooms including 76 suites with panoramic views of either Burj Khalifa or the coastline.

Dine on innovative Thai fare at The Green Spices and taste sizzling meats and French cuts at The Red Grill steakhouse. Open kitchens at Les Cuisines offer all-day international dining, while the La Patisserie takes you right back to Paris.

A “world” of choices is available for you to enjoy drinks and delicacies. Visit The 31 Bar and savor the panoramic views of both Burj Khalifa and the coastline while you enjoy your cocktails. Our Op Art Lobby Bar is the ideal place to visit after your meetings or before your night exploration of the city. With Burj Khalifa as your backdrop, enjoy the chic and lively surroundings of the Mosaic Pool and Above lounge. A 60 meter infinity pool with loungers awaits you during the day at the Mosaic Pool. Above is a trendy lounge which serves drinks and delicacies in the evening: this is the Hotel’s hot spot.
