Address Downtown is back 

After a two-year redevelopment and redesign, one of the city’s most popular hotels, the Address Downtown, finally reopened this month in central Dubai.

Located beside the iconic Dubai Fountains, the 220-room/63 storey Address has consistently won the world’s top tourism awards and will again offer an outstanding line-up of restaurants and bars. On the menu this time are local favourites STK Steakhouse, robatayaki-style restaurant Katana, a cigar lounge offering exclusive releases, and the Galliard, serving Turkish, French and Spanish cuisine. Topping it off is the hotel’s gorgeous lounge bar on the 63rd floor Neos taking full advantage of an unforgettable view that includes its neighbour and world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Located just a short drive from Dubai International Airport, this exclusive hotel will offer 247 guest rooms and suites, a gorgeous spa, and a huge range of upscale restaurants, bars and cafes.
