The award-winning Emirates Towers Hotel, part of Dubai based luxury hospitality group Jumeirah International, has recently launched a Broadband Internet solution, which is now available in all guest rooms, suites and wireless in selected public areas of the hotel including the conference & meeting rooms and ‘Godolphin’ ballroom. The implementation of this high-speed Internet connection further enhances the comfort of the business traveller staying at Emirates Towers Hotel and is the latest addition to the already extensive selection of business facilities and services available at the hotel.
The Broadband Internet Connection is available in all of the hotel’s 400 rooms and suites as well as in the main public areas at Emirates Towers Hotel. This high-speed Internet access accommodates fast and efficient connection to the Internet and all the guest needs to do is plug in his/her laptop or notebook to enjoy high-speed access.
Robert Kunkler, General Manager for Emirates Towers said: “We have seen a strong increase in demand for high-speed Internet access from the business traveller staying with us and the Broadband Internet Solution we have now introduced will significantly speed up the Internet access from the guest’s laptop or notebook”.
As of the 1st June, guests of Emirates Towers Hotel will be able to book a specially designed ‘VIP Business Package’ along with their room reservation, which includes 24 hours Broadband Internet Access, a daily coffee and croissant at the Oyster Lounge, a complimentary bottle of house beverage, a selection of freshly squeezed fruit juices and the pressing of one suit. The ‘VIP Business Package’ is available at Dhs.95 only.
Easily accessible and just 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport, Emirates Towers Hotel is designed for the modern business community. World-class facilities include 17 restaurants, bars and lounges each with a distinctive decor and atmosphere, a 24-hour health club with fully equipped gymnasium, sauna, steam bath, massage room and an outdoor swimming pool.
