InterContinental Dubai Reaches 3 Decade Landmark
InterContinental Dubai is this month celebrating 30 years of providing 5-star service to visitors, making it the longest serving 5-star property in the country.
Since the hotel’s official opening 30 years ago (15 March, 1975), an event graced with the presence of HH Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai from 1958 to 1990, the landmark property on Dubai Creek has accomplished some amazing achievements. The hotel has provided more than 2.8 million room nights and served almost 17 million cups of coffee. Due to the hotel’s prime location, the InterContinental Dubai has witnessed the phenomenal growth of Dubai and the amazing changes made as it seeks to establish itself as one of the premier cities in the world.
“The hospitality sector the world over is a competitive environment but here in Dubai the market has been growing at a phenomenal rate with new hotels being developed all over the city,” commented Tom Meyer, InterContinental Dubai’s General Manager.
“It is wonderful to see the InterContinental Dubai, which opened in March 1975, is performing exceptionally well 30 years on. We are confident that the hotel’s success is
firmly based on its ability to change with the times and to continually provide the ultimate levels of service and customer care,” said Denis Johnson, vice president, sales and marketing, InterContinental Hotels Group Middle East and Africa.
