“Adding Pullman Dubai Deira City Center to our global properties is a milestone for us. Our Pullman network currently counts 78 hotels in 23 countries. We have huge ambitions for this brand which offers a strong and differentiated proposal to customers and owners. Middle East’s strong travel and tourism outlook matches Accor’s development goals of managing 150 Pullman hotels worldwide by 2015-2020, among which 15 will be in key GCC destinations.” says Yann Caillère, president and chief operating officer Accor.
The hotel is located in the Deira district, connected to one of the city’s largest malls. Amenities include the brand’s signature services including the Welcomer, Pullman bed, free Wi-Fi, Connectivity Lounge, Co-Meeting offer for the MICE market, Nespresso experience, Vinoteca by Pullman wine list, and Pullman Fit & Spa Lounge.
Christophe Landais, managing director Accor Middle East, added: “We are committed to further strengthen our position in the region and the Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre will undoubtedly be the choice hotel for business and leisure travellers. We currently operate four Pullman hotels in the Middle East, and will add two more - the 354-room Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers which will open this year and the 468-room Pullman Doha West Bay which will open in 2015.”
The property offers four restaurants and bars including Le Cafe, a 24-hour lobby lounge; all-day dining restaurant Medley; La Fabrique, a New York-style venue for after-work drinks or to watch the latest sport broadcast; and the outdoor rooftop pool lounge, Azure.
In October, the hotel will have an entire floor dedicated to meetings and events with 9 renovated meeting rooms, a dedicated meeting space of 909 square meters. A fully dedicated team, with an event manager and IT solutions manager will deal with all last minute details (from the break areas, meeting room set-up, dining rooms, video-conferencing services, Pullman Chill out Spaces, and innovative breaks) to assure success of all professional events. The Pullman Connectivity Lounge allows clients to print documents and efficiently work with the latest-generation of PCs and printers.
