The twin triangular topped towers — one an office block, the other the 56-floor Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel — are a distinctive feature on the business district skyline. There’s a masculine feel to the architecture and the interiors with contemporary décor in muted shades and dark woods. But there is a women-only floor that’s serviced exclusively by female staff and includes, of all things, a cosmetics fridge. At lobby level, the Boulevard is an upmarket mall that sells Cartier and Lanvin. The spa has a flotation pool and oxygen bar, while the 16 restaurants and lounges include light bites and a knockout outlook at Vu on the 51st floor.
In the Area
There’s a lot of wealth in Dubai’s business neighborhood, and they’re not afraid to show it: the gate-shaped Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is a must see, and it isn’t all business, with restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. Nearby is the 2,717-foot-high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, which has an observation deck if you have a head for heights, as well as At.mosphere restaurant on level 122, and a surrounding 27 acre park with a spectacular water and light show for those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground. Another world record holder in the area, at over 12 million square feet, is the Dubai Mall, where you can scuba dive, ice skate and see 3D movies (in addition to, ya know, shopping).
How to Get There
Simply the best business hotel I have stayed in. Staff unobtrusive but provide exemplary service. Discretion and excellence are two words to describe the experience. There is no need to look anywhere else if you are in Dubai for business.
Stayed recently for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Mainly booked as priced very reasonably for what is on offer. Love the fact that you have free transport and access to the beach at Mina Salam hotel plus easy access to the Dubai Mall and a nice pool at the hotel itself. Stayed in a deluxe room this time which had a different layout from the higher room categories but I found this room so much easier for drying hair etc more women orientated in my view.
Given very early check in when arrived which I really appreciate. Thank you. Room very comfortable with great bed. Has all you need. Any small thing seen to straight away.
Best thing about the hotel is the staff and how comfortable they all make you feel staying here, from the staff driving the shuttle buses, the conceige ladies, staff in the restaurants etc.
Pool area nice and relaxing. Never too busy. Shuttle bus timings great for us for both the beach and the mall. Not too far from the Dubai mall to get taxis. Very welcoming at the beach too with lovely new sun loungers on the beach and plenty of free water given throughout the day.
Only ate breakfast in the hotel. This for me would be the only area I feel could be better. I am not looking for a huge choice but things I like were quite limited. Like a hot chocolate as I don't drink tea or coffee but it was really only nice on one occasion. Rest of time 1 out of 10. Think it depends on who makes it and most mornings staff seemed too busy. The restaurant has a fresh juicing station. Great if there is staff to make some or ingredients to make drinks! Only managed to get what I wanted one morning so while looking good not much good if you can't get juice. Music there must be on a loop. Same every day. (music to eat your breakfast as quickly as possible to!) Bus loads of guests filling their shopping bags up with cakes each morning from their plates! Not much of a selection of fruit to eat at breakfast.
Even though the hotel is classed as a business hotel it provides a great stay for all.
Excellent hotel with excellent service in an excellent location in Dubai. Setting the standards as top notch. Emirates Towers is certainly the right choice of hotel and a very classy and unique experience
