Overview

The Review

The Armani Hotel Dubai is a truly unique experience, melding the eponymous fashion designer’s elegant, understated style with an extreme address in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 2,716 feet. For his debut hotel, Giorgio Armani has dressed it in distinctive furnishings, fabric wallpaper and limestone floors.

As I enter the lobby, employees in Armani suits, seemingly recruited from modeling agencies, greet me. I’m struck by the lobby’s dramatic C-shaped leather sectional and Arabic-style arches — grandeur tempered by Armani’s signature subdued color palette — and by the absence of a check-in desk (that drudgery happens out of the public eye).

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/10166/pgal-71505-1299199356-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”A different cuisine is served at each of the eight restaurants; Hashi specializes in sushi.”}My assigned host guides me to my room through futuristic zebrawood-paneled corridors trimmed with lights; the doors are flush with the walls and seem to float. In the 160 guestrooms, Armani’s familiar touch permeates every detail. Kingsize beds are wrapped tightly in checkered bedspreads like a birthday gift. The closets are intriguingly hidden behind panels, and the gently curving walls provide a subtly sophisticated reminder of the sky-high location.

A good cure for jet lag is the hotel’s outdoor pool and 12,000-square-foot spa on the third floor. It’s all a prelude to the on-site nightlife, which includes eight restaurants and a nightclub — at all of which fashion is (naturally) the theme. Global dance beats thump as videos of models in Armani play on a giant LED wall.

Elsewhere, hard-to-get Armani accessories are for sale at the hotel’s boutique, like watches and handbags from the Giorgio Armani Privé collection and an elegant selection of Italian sweets. Each of the restaurants dish out a different cuisine offering visitors a wide choice of culinary options that reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Dubai. Armani/Hashi presents a delectable take on traditional and modern cuisine and offers some of the best sushi in the city. Armani/Amal offers delightful Indian delicacies and a stunning view of the Dubai Fountain, which gives the city yet another superlative — the fountain is billed as the tallest performing one on earth.

Nice hotel and great staff

We had a great stay to celebrate my best friend's birthday in this hotel in August 2019. The room was very clean and spacious!

The entire staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. They are very thoughtful and caring to ensure that you are enjoying your stay, especially the staff, Indra, he made everything go smoothly when we arrived and departed and provided excellent concierge service. He was very helpful in making several reservations for us and assist us with activity arrangements and directions.

Indra who greeted us by name each time he saw us and always had a lovely smile on his face! The view was breathtaking, grounds are kept immaculate!

I just wanted to let you know how friendly, helpful and dedicated this young man is.

We will definitely be back for pleasure on our next trip!

The hotel is amazing and the staff is always available to advice, to respond to your every need. Thanks to Ashraf at the concierge/lifestyle connoisseur will definitely hook you up with the best activities Dubai has to offer. Shout out to Amr at the Desk for his listening ear and making sure everything is going well.
To the whole team, to those we see and don’t, thanks for the good service and hospitality.
