The highly anticipated Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has officially opened its doors, joining two other Waldorf Astoria properties in the UAE and reinforcing the brand as the pinnacle of luxury in the region. The 275-room hotel is an addition to Dubai’s bustling financial district, bringing a slice of the French Riviera with its stylish rooftop bar and pool, a piece of New York City with acclaimed restaurant Bull & Bear, and a timeless design that evokes the elegance of the 1960s.
Waldorf Astoria DIFC occupies the 18th to 55th floors of the Burj Daman, a complex featuring residences and office towers. Guests will enjoy a unique reception and check-in experience on the 18th floor, which is also home to the hotel’s dining and wellness facilities and acting as the true heartbeat of the hotel.
All 275 guest rooms, including 46 suites and 28 residential suites, offer breath-taking, unobstructed views of the downtown Dubai skyline, which can be viewed through floor-to-ceiling windows in each room. Guests can reach The Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain within minutes during their stay in one of Dubai’s most vibrant districts.
“We have expanded our luxury presence in the region with the opening of Waldorf Astoria DIFC which is located in an important economic hub within the region,” said Rudi Jagersbacher, president of Middle East, Africa and Turkey at Hilton. “Earlier this year, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum approved the launch of DIFC 2.0 which will add 13 million square feet of space to the centre. We are now a part of this rapidly growing district and look forward to delivering unparalleled experiences to guests staying in DIFC.”
