Hotels in Downtown Dubai: My 2 Favorites
Curator’s statement

While living in Dubai, I had the pleasure of staying at some of the finest hotels in Downtown Dubai. My two favorites are The Address and the infamous Armani Hotel at the Burj Khalifa. The restaurants, clubs, location, accommodations, staff and amenities are all the best this iconic city has to offer.

The Address Hotel has gorgeous accommodations with magnificent views of the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountains. This iconic hotel has direct access to the Dubai Mall and is located on the promenade where the Dubai Fountain displays its water and light show throughout the day and night.

They offer standard 1-king rooms all the way up to 2-bedroom residences that can sleep six.

The dining options at the Address will absolutely blow any expectations you have of a typical dinner experience out of the water. KRASOTA is about just a restaurant; it's a culinary attraction that transforms dining into a theatrical experience.

Qix is their kids club for ages 4-12. They offer educational and entertaining activities for the children of the hotel's guests complimentary for two hours.

The Armani Hotel is located at the Burj Khalifa tower right in the heart of downtown Dubai. The Burj Khalifa is most well-known for being the world's largest building and is equipped with several observation decks. At The Armani Hotel, Italian design meets Arabic hospitality.

Dubai is known for their brunches. Where friends can come together and enjoy an all-inclusive buffet-style meal with free-flowing alcoholic beverages. The Armani Hotel in downtown Dubai hosts a very popular brunch at their Mediterranean restaurant.

Armani Prive is one of the hippest premium nightclubs in Dubai. The club was designed by Giorgio Armani himself and embodies the essence of the entire Armani experience. The club opens at 11pm.

Need to Know

These two hotels in Downtown Dubai will encapsulate the entire vibe of this vibrant city. Both The Address and The Armani Hotel at the Burj Kailifa will provide a front-row seat to some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. I would recommend either of these hotels to any client visiting Dubai seeking the full experience.
