Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lake Towers Hotel and Residence will open in January 2015.

The hotel will comprise 354 rooms, including 76 apartments and suites, while other facilities will include 11 meeting rooms, three F&B outlets, a rooftop swimming pool, and spa.

It will target business and leisure travellers, general manager Fadeel Wehbe told Hotelier Middle East.

“We are located in JLT, which is a free-zone area," he explained. "It’s quite a busy area with lots of businesses. We have over 7500 companies in JLT alone.

"There are two other hotels, so we are the third international chain here and we expect to be quite busy."

“Being in Dubai, leisure is always a part of the business and of course because of being in the business centre here, corporate will take a big share. I think the focus will be on the JLT area, which will be the captive audience due to the fact that there aren’t many hotels in JLT. Lots of multinationals in the past year or two have moved to JLT to do business here. So there are quite large companies with quite large demand for rooms and F&B.

“At the same time, we also have close proximity to Jebel Ali, Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City, Dubai World Central, so we expect to tap into all these areas around us.”

The hotel will ‘soft-open’ on January 2, with an official opening date of February 1, 2015, Wehbe confirmed.
