AccorHotels to expand presence in Dubai

AccorHotels is to add 1,300 new rooms in the United Arab Emirates across four hotels, following the signing of four management agreements with Manazil Group, with projects planned for Dubai and Sharjah.

The properties in Dubai will be located in Jumeirah Village Triangle, around 30 minutes from Dubai International Airport, and will include the 164-room Majalis Grand Mercure Hotel, a further 330-room Mercure hotel and an Adagio Aparthotel, which will offer 336 rooms. These hotels are expected to open in 2019. 

The Sharjah property - Pullman Sharjah, is currently under construction and is slated for completion in 2018. The 188-room property will have meeting space, two health clubs, a spa and two indoor pools.
