The Corp Executive Al Khoory Hotel in Dubai is scheduled for a soft opening during the Eid holiday, aiming to fine-tune facilities prior to the peak business season starting September.
Part of HMH – Hospitality Management Holdings, and the second Corp Executive property to open in the emirate, the hotel will feature the brand trademarks of cutting-edge design, exceptional comfort, superior service and reasonable rates, underpinned with the latest technology, according to HMH Regional General Manager, Pierre Sokhon.
“With an excellent location in Al Wasl, offering convenient access to Dubai World Trade Centre, exhibition and conference halls, and Dubai International Financial Centre, as well as leisure attractions such as the Jumeirah Beach, the Corp Executive Al Khoory Hotel ticks the location box demanded by all business visitors,” mention by Mr. Sokhon.
“Other features include on-site restaurant, café and deli dining, high speed Wi-Fi Internet access, voice mail, Complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in every room, business centre and concierge services.”
The 208-room hotel located next to the Iranian Hospital includes 127 superior & 48 deluxe rooms and 33 executive rooms and suites, all of which are non-smoking with mini bar and electronic safe deposit box.
Facilities include two meeting rooms with capacity for up to 240 delegates, plus the Mood all-day restaurant, Caffeine lobby lounge, Deli-Mood for snacks, the Courtyard majlis and 24-hour in-room dining, and a fully equipped gym with separate male and female sauna and steam rooms.
Ideally suited to corporate visitors, the Corp Executive Al Khoory Hotel will open at a time when the focus will be on delivering the optimum service at realistic rates, Mention by Mr Sokhon.
“After a boom at the beginning of the year, when visitor numbers rose by nine per cent and average occupancy rates soared to 87 per cent in Q1, according to figures from the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing, we know that the addition of more hotel rooms will temper the rate of increase.”
While in excess of 4,000 hotel rooms opened last year in Dubai, according to consultants STR Global, the emirate has more than 13,300 additional units in the construction pipeline, covering all sectors from budget brands to deluxe names.
“With more than 1.65 million visitors for events at the Dubai World Trade Centre last year, representing a 17 per cent increase over the previous year, the scope in this one area alone is tremendous, and this will be an area of focus for the Corp Executive Al Khoory Hotel,” added by Mr Sokhon.
A Mastercard Worldwide Index of Global Destination Cities recently revealed that Dubai ranked in eighth position among the top tourist destinations worldwide, and forecast visitor numbers to the city would jump by more than 15 per cent in 2012 over 2011.
