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.

Perfect venue for a spectacular event
Reviewed 11 hours ago

Located at the heart of Dubai, Hotel Armani has everything one can think of for hosting a spectacular gala evening. With the mesmerizing views of Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa, all venues at Armani Hotel gives its guest a feeling of grandeur. It is not only the signature style hotel rooms and restaurants but also the guest service that speaks about its excellence. The staff is very friendly and cooperative but professional who is always keen to go to that extra mile just to make everything perfect. Every detail is considered, and every issue is addressed efficiently and confidently and with a big smile. Everything from the event set up to food menu is just Perfect. I would highly recommend Armani Hotel for great corporate and personal events as well as for an exceptional hotel stay. We are hosting our corporate dinner in the same venue from past 4 years. THANKS to the positive impact they make to our guests and we look forward for many such successful events.

Beautiful Modern Hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

This is a beautiful hotel designed by Armani. I think it is the only one he ever designed. It has a lot of very unique touches, such as a soap that looks like a rock, and shampoo bottle tops, etc., to match. The doors in the hall blend into the wall and are a little disconcerting on first viewing. It is, in all respects, a beautiful place and has a superb restaurant. However, if you don't like modern, I recommend staying at The Palace, across the small lake.

Amazing

For the average person this is indeed a once in a lifetime experience worth every penny. The staff is very friendly and attentive and always willing to advise, suggest recommend and help out at every turn. A big thumbs up for our lifestyle manager Mr Saied Sorour for his exceptional service. The view from our room on the 39th floor is, just undiscribable.
