Freshly opened in the Dubai Marina district, this 328-room property has bolstered Intercontinental's existing presence in the emirate. There are nine meeting rooms, the largest of which can take up to 100 delegates, while the hotel's headline F&B attraction from this month (September) will be Jason Atherton's Marina Social - the Michelin-starred, British chef will oversee a menu with a Mediterranean influence.

The property's location will likely prove part of the appeal for many, with Dubai Media City, Jumeirah Beach and Dubai Marina Mall all sitting within ten minutes' drive. Other stand-out features include a spa, health club and outdoor pool, while for those organisers looking after VIPs, there are 24 suites.
