An entire floor of the 14-story City Seasons Bur Dubai will be dedicated to meeting and events, with large halls that can be partitioned to offer smaller spaces for training and board meetings.

Located within the city's business centre, close to Banks Street and the Burjuman Mall, it will offer 192 bedrooms, three dining outlets, a gym and a rooftop swimming pool.

The opening is the group's third in Dubai, bringing its total number of properties to seven, six of which are in the UAE and one in Muscat, Oman.

Sheikh Ahmed Musallam Bin Ham, vice-president of City Seasons Hotels, said: "We are happy and proud to announce the opening of our City Seasons Bur Dubai. The new hotel is definitely a landmark in one of the busiest area of Dubai. Despite its futuristic design, City Seasons Bur Dubai will respect the chain’s motto for offering a high standard of comfort and modern luxury at affordable rates."

The group has plans to further expand its portfolio of four- and five-star hotels and is currently looking at sites in neighbouring Gulf countries and North Africa.
