Conrad Hotels, the luxury brand of the Hilton family, recently reached an agreement with the Abu Dhabi headquartered real estate company Private Property Management, to operate and manage Dubai’s first Conrad hotel, a luxurious 350-room property located in the heart of Dubai’s commercial, business and entertainment district - Sheikh Zayed Road. The property is scheduled to open late 2007. Jacobus Klein, Board Director of Conrad Hotels and President of Hilton International, Middle East and Asia Pacific said, “We are honoured to work with Private Property Management and to have secured one of the most prestigious and visible locations in Dubai. This will be an extraordinary property and it will fit our plans to expand the Conrad brand further into the Middle East.”
Mohamed Ahmed Al Bowardi, Managing Director, Private Property Management said, “We are pleased that Conrad, one of the world’s finest hotel brands, has selected Dubai as the site for the GCC’s first luxury Conrad hotel. By fully utilizing Conrad and Hilton’s vast global sales network, including more than 4000 sales people in 35 offices around the globe, we hope to reach out to a large percentage of the 15 million travellers that the Dubai government has forecast annually by the year 2010.”
The future Conrad Dubai will be strategically located on Sheikh Zayed Road, just 20 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and close to the Dubai World Trade Centre and International Convention Centre, Dubai International Financial Centre and the proposed Dubai Metro System Station.
Catering to both the corporate and leisure market, the hotel will feature 220 luxurious guest and Executive Floor rooms, plus 130 suites and serviced apartments.
