By the end of 2019, the room inventory in Dubai is expected to reach 132,000, according to a study conducted by Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism). The rapid rise is primarily fuelled by the upcoming World Expo 2020, which is expected to attract more than 20 million tourists.

“A modern hotel concept that will cater to the new generation of business and leisure travellers looking for experience, authenticity and value for money, Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District perfectly fits the requirement.”
