Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre is the latest property within the Marriott portfolio to launch the brand’s Le Meridien Hub.
A spokesperson for the group said the project has seen the traditional lobby area transform into a modern and stylish environment, welcoming guests in a unique setting surrounded by floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and contemporary art installations.
The newly transformed lobby also plays host to Gourmandises Café and a signature F&B outlet, Latitude 25.
“We are very excited to unveil this enhancement to our iconic property – it has been months in the making for the whole team involved,” said Shaun Parsons, general manager Le Meridien Dubai Complex.
“Due to our location, the hotel is very popular among business travellers, however it’s also a prime spot for visitors looking for cultural diversity within the region.”
During phase two, the renovation will continue and expand to cover over 350 rooms, which are being upgraded in stages to avoid affecting guest experience and business levels.
Leisure facilities across the complex are also included in the plan with upgrades already implemented across two of the pool areas.
A collaboration has been confirmed with Optimal Fitness, which will see the introduction of new equipment, therapy offerings and personal training sessions at the Natural Elements Spa and Fitness centre.
2018 will focus on the food and beverage offering at the complex with plans to introduce new concepts as well as expanding on the existing ones.
“We’re proud to be home to some of Dubai’s most renowned restaurants, many of which have been with us for over 20 years and continue to flourish. That said, we’re well aware of the competitive market and need to ensure that we’re still creating new, innovative products,” Parsons said.
