Business Bay’s Hotels

Business Bay has some of the best urban hotels in Dubai, many of them with views over Downtown Dubai and Burj Khalifa, or out to the Arabian Gulf. You can find rooms designed for minimalism and efficiency, or some of the most lavish anywhere in Dubai – and everything in between. A highlight for accommodation – as well as dining and entertainment – is Al Habtoor City, which includes three Hilton-managed hotels, all five-star properties. Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City provides the elegance and service you’d expect; V Hotel is part of Hilton’s Curio Collection and has a stunning rooftop pool; and Habtoor Palace Dubai is one of Hilton’s “LXR” ultra-luxe properties, with the exquisite service and amenities that entails. Other stunning five-star properties include the twin-towered JW Marriott Marquis, the tallest five-star hotel in the world, and ME by Melia at The Opus, designed by Zaha Hadid. The late architect worked on the interiors as well as the overall design, with her “deconstructivist” philosophy evident throughout the hotel – making it a must-stay property for fans of Hadid’s work. There are plenty more five-star hotels in Business Bay, such as SLS Dubai Hotel, The St Regis Downtown and Anantara Downtown, all of which are highly rated. For longer-term stays, or just for more space, DAMAC Maison Privéand DAMAC Maison Canal Views offer luxurious hotel apartments in Business Bay. You can also find great four-star hotels in Business Bay, including the Hollywood-themed Paramount Hotel and Paramount Hotel Midtown. These properties make the most of their silver-screen heritage with themed room designs throughout, including suites featuring genuine movie-making equipment – and, at Paramount Hotel, an in-house cinema which shows films from the studio’s archives. Other great four-star choices include DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai Business Bay, Citymax Hotel Business Bay, and Park Regis Business Bay, with City Premiere Hotel Apartments ideal for longer trips. Three-star hotels are somewhat scarce in Business Bay – although new properties are opening regularly,DAMAC Towers Paramount, next to Paramount Hotel, offers three-star aparthotel accommodation. But given Business Bay’s proximity to Downtown Dubai and other areas, there’s plenty of good-value accommodation to be found nearby.
