Expanding their UAE portfolio, Marriott International has announced The St. Regis Downtown Dubai will open its doors in the emirate later this year.

Marriott International has announced this week they will add a new addition to their UAE property portfolio with the opening of The St. Regis Downtown Dubai in late 2021.

The luxury resort will take over the space of Renaissance Downtown Hotel, transforming the design to fit within the St. Regis branding; a five-star hotel, ‘Where Indulgence Meets Sophistication.’

“St. Regis delivers exquisite experiences and anticipatory service in some of the most desirable locations around the world. With this addition, the brand will arrive at one of the finest addresses in Downtown Dubai, which is home to the city’s most iconic landmarks,” says Jerome Briet, Chief Development Officer, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.

Located along the Canal in Business Bay, the hotel is situated in close proximity to The Dubai Mall with Burj Khalifa views.

“The St. Regis Downtown Dubai is set to offer unparalleled luxury, bespoke service and modern glamour for leisure and business travellers alike,” he added.

The transformation of the hotel is expected to include a residential-inspired sophisticated design of the lobby and the addition of an Astor Ballroom, which speaks to the brand’s focus on hosting iconic celebrations. The renovations will be blended with the hallmarks of St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, including the brand’s celebrated Rituals and signature St. Regis Butler Service.

The addition will be the 18th in Marriott International’s UAE collection. Currently, the luxury hotel group operates 17 properties with more than 6,000 rooms across seven of its luxury brands.
