Waldorf Astoria DIFC occupies the 18th to 55th floors of the Burj Daman, a complex featuring residences and office towers.
Guests will enjoy a reception and check-in experience on the 18th floor, which is also home to the hotel’s dining and wellness facilities and acting as the true heartbeat of the hotel.
All 275 guest rooms, including 46 suites and 28 residential suites, offer unobstructed views of the downtown Dubai skyline, which can be viewed through floor-to-ceiling windows in each room.
Guests can reach the Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain within minutes during their stay in one of Dubai’s most vibrant districts.
