Accor to open Ibis One central at DWTC
Accor set to open third World Trade Centre hotel with 588 rooms
AccorHotels is adding to its cluster of hotels located in Dubai’s financial and commercial districts with the addition of the Ibis One Central by the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Opening its doors in mid-January 2016, the hotel has been classified as an economy offering by its operator.
It will join AccorHotels’ two existing properties situated within Dubai World Trade Centre: the midscale Novotel World Trade Centre and economy Ibis World Trade Centre.
The 588 room property will be AccorHotels’ largest Ibis property in the GCC region. As the second Ibis hotel at DWTC and the group’s third property near the site, the new hotel brings the number of rooms in the district to 1,210 under the brand name.
Ibis One Central will primarily cater to business travellers with 24-hour check-in and complimentary WiFi access throughout the property.
On the F&B front the hotel will offer Wok & Co, an Asian fusion restaurant; and Cubano-Lito Bar & Grill, offering light snacks and live music. Breakfast starts from as early as 4 am along with a 24-hour room service menu.
“With Dubai World Trade Centre hosting a year-round calendar of world-class events, exhibitions and conferences, our strategic location within the bustling district means we can welcome business travellers and event attendees,” says Frederic Gitzner, cluster general manager, Novotel & Ibis World Trade Centre and IbisOne Central.
“The MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) sector is only set to grow further in the run-up to Dubai Expo 2020 and our inventory of 588 guest rooms enables us to meet the needs of corporates and exhibitors,” adds Gitzner.
“Looking after our guests and ensuring they enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep is our top priority, and, with the innovative and supremely comfortable Sweet Bed by Ibis,” Tyrone Lodder, hotel manager, Ibis World Trade Centre and Ibis One Central added.
