The Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, owned by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), is set to rebrand to Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi later in 2018, and will be the first Andaz branded hotel in the Middle East.

Located in the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, the property is near cultural, creative and entertainment offerings including Zayed Sports City and The Louvre, with the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Mangrove National Park a short drive away. The hotel will feature a permanent art collection and various examples of craftsmanship such as 'khatt' calligraphy art and local, traditional 'sadu' weaving.

Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi will include 189 guestrooms and suites, occupying the 18th to 33rd floors of the Capital Gate building. Each room will offer floor-to-ceiling windows, artwork, and locally designed comforts such as the hotel’s Andaz Loungewear. The hotel is adjacent to Abu Dhabi’s National Exhibition Centre and will feature a variety of restaurants and bars, an art gallery, a spa, as well as a rooftop swimming pool and fitness centre.
