“Dubai has been one of the best-performing markets for Rotana, where we have a strong presence with an existing inventory of eleven hotels, and several under development which will give us an additional 3,168 rooms in the city.
“With its forward-looking economy and continued infrastructure investments, combined with its appealing luxury, retail and tourism offerings, the emirate continues to be a magnet for both business and leisure travellers.
“The emirate has seen a steady growth in the number of visitors and in 2017 alone it welcomed 15.8 million travellers.
“With the opening of Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana, we have reached a new milestone in our growth journey and the properties, situated in a prime location in Dubai, have further cemented our leading position in the hospitality industry,” said David Prince, area vice president, Rotana.
Hussein Hachem, an accomplished hotelier with more than 35 years of experience, is at the helm of the two new hotels.

“Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana are set to redefine Dubai Creek living, where the emirate started off its magnificent journey.
“With their closeness to major heritage and tourist attractions, including Dubai Festival City, Dubai Museum, Gold Souk, Al Seef and Rise at Dubai Creek Harbour, the hotels make a natural choice for travellers exploring the city and also the ideal place for business travellers looking for convenience and five-star facilities in the heart of the city.
