W Dubai – Al Habtoor City Marks the Long-Awaited Entry of the Cutting Edge Hotel Brand into Dubai

W Hotels Worldwide, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Inc., today debuted in the UAE with the opening of W Dubai – Al Habtoor City on Sheikh Zayed Road. Owned by Al Habtoor Group, W Dubai – Al Habtoor City redefines the city’s hospitality scene with its electrifying style, signature Whatever/Whenever® service and bold lifestyle programming.


Turning Up the Heat

Located within Al Habtoor City, the emirate’s first fully-integrated urban resort, the hotel offers insider access to Dubai, with a full calendar of W Happenings showcasing what’s new and next in fashion, music and entertainment. Rising to 33 storeys, W Dubai – Al Habtoor City shines a new spotlight on the pulsating heart of Dubai as the ultimate powerhouse, where guests can enjoy the brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever® service philosophy that delivers whatever they want, whenever they want it.


Guests checking into the hotel are whisked up 30 floors to W Lounge, W Hotels’ reinterpretation of the traditional hotel lobby. Here a multitude of lounge and entertainment areas set within a multi-tiered floor space will become second home to Dubai’s style set. Within this venue, panoramic views of the city’s stunning skyline and soon-to-be completed Dubai Water Canal are to be enjoyed alongside stylish cocktails and sizzling beats.


Led by Singapore-based firm Silverfox Studios, W Dubai – Al Habtoor City and its 365 rooms and suites boast a bold and contemporary design. Inspired by the hotel’s location, adjacent to the energy and vibrancy of Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road, the interiors feature provocative linear patterns, reflecting the city’s social rhythm and constant flux. Future forward technology and custom furnishings double as abstract art to complement the vivid colour palette against the sleek lines of the minimalist guestrooms. Adding to the bright and fresh mood, the open concept bathroom-to-bedroom creates a fluid flow throughout, while floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the city and sea.


The 449sqm Sensational Suite is centered around a bar, with an adjoining majlis-style lounge, DJ booth, dance stage, bar and kitchenette. The bedroom features the signature W Bed, W pillow menu, a walk-in closet, en suite bathroom, Jacuzzi and steam room. Spanning 690sqm, the Extreme Wow Suite – the W brand’s take on a Presidential Suite – occupies the 27th and 28th floors with panoramic views of Dubai’s dazzling skyline, bustling Sheikh Zayed Road, and the glistening Arabian Gulf. The suite’s sophisticated urban features include a kitchenette, spacious lounge area, multi-event area, wine chiller, bar, DJ station, dance floor, catwalk ramp and pool table.


Peter Katusak-Huzsvar, W Dubai – Al Habtoor City General Manager, said: “We are thrilled to unveil W Dubai – Al Habtoor City to the savvy residents and visitors of Dubai. As one of the most anticipated hotel openings in the UAE this year, W Dubai promises contemporary lifestyle experiences that upend the unexpected and boldly express the city’s constant lust for life. The hotel will also reinforce Dubai’s reputation as a city of life, bringing new and exciting opportunities from the world of fashion, music and design to global travellers and local trendsetters.”


W Dubai – Al Habtoor City’s buzzing B&F venues are set to elevate the city’s dining scene and create the hottest new mingling spots in town. The hotel opens with Level Seven, which serves up Mediterranean flavours from theatrical open kitchens and chef tables, and is inspired by daily market finds and seasonal produce brought together with creative flair in this casual, yet social hot spot.


A vibrant world where culinary innovation, mixology, music, fashion and design meet, W Lounge is destined to become the city’s newest social hot spot where amplified happenings take place while hotel guests and Dubai residents mix and mingle. W Lounge will generate a social energy that appeals to trend setters and seekers looking to be seen and heard.


In July, Namu, the hotel’s destination restaurant opens its doors, presenting original and decisive dishes that mix Japanese and Korean flavours.
