If you’re just making a quick stop-over in Dubai to take care of some business or just for a quick layover before heading to the next destination, we’ve rounded up all the best professional, convenient and business-oriented hotels for you in Dubai.
Fairmont’s Dubai location gives you everything a business layover could need. You’ll definitely have access to business, meeting, and conference centres but you’ll also get the convenience of downtown Dubai. This ideal location means that most of the guests are also on business and work-related trips, so you’ll be vibing with the same kind of crowd. We recommend checking out Fairmont Gold for even more convenience and stress-free accommodation, with everything from your own Gold suites to mouth-watering buffet breakfasts and lunches.
Located right next to the Dubai International Financial Centre, this Ritz-Carlton location will give you everything you could need for a 5-star business stay. The hotel offers 24h business, meeting, and conference rooms, alongside its outstanding and elegant décor. There are plenty of restaurants to check out and bring some business associates, along with a spa if you need to unwind after a long and hard work day.
Right on the outskirts of Business Bay, this JW Marriott location gives you a quiet downtown setting with plenty of luxury amenities. Untangle all those stress knots at their spa, or work away tensions at their fitness centre. JW can give you access to any one of its 32 meeting rooms, or even make this the location of your next corporate event.
With meeting rooms that overlook the Dubai skyline, you’ll feel like you’re mixing work with pleasure at Jumeirah Emirates Towers. This hotel will fulfill all your luxury 5-star needs, and — bonus! — the Emirates Towers are renowned worldwide. Just 3 minutes from the Dubai International Financial Centre, your business stay couldn’t feel more Dubai than this.
The Radisson Blu Hotel is located right downtown at Business Bay in Dubai. You get the best of the waterfront views with all of the convenience of being downtown. They give you access to all their business, conference, and meeting rooms designed to accommodate as many as 350 people. With the added benefit of several on-site restaurants, you’ll have no problem finding a place for business meetings, lunch negotiations, or dinners between colleagues.
The Grosvenor Luxury Collection Hotel in Dubai gives you a masculine vibe that fits right in with the bustling business guests. Located at the Dubai Marina, Grosvenor offers an array of fitness classes along with the sleekest of business, meeting, and conference centres.
At Raffles, you’ll be in for a unique luxury experience. Its pyramid shape gives it a truly standout vibe that beats the usual tall high-rise downtown buildings. With featured wireless audiovisual and telecommunications devices inside their business meeting rooms, you’ll have everything you need to keep connected with the team back home.
Located right across the street from Emirates Towers, Convention Tower, and the Trade Centre, Crowne Plaza Dubai will accommodate all your business needs. It has a predominantly worker vibe that’s perfect for a work trip. With as many as 15 available meeting rooms that can hold as much as 300 people, the Crown Plaza will have you set on all things work. If you’re in the mood for a break, check out their outdoor pool, spa, or fitness centre to unwind for an hour or two.
Located a little southeast of the city, Meydan has you covered on business and exhibition space alike. With a mix of modern and classic décor, the business centres will feel more like the luxury vacation you’re longing for than a hard day at work. It even has a rooftop infinity pool that overlooks the Meydan Horse Racetrack.
The Media Rotana Dubai gives you a luxury hotel 5-star stay with a quieter laid-back vibe. Its location just south of the city centre means you’ll have easier access to the beach if you’re looking to really unwind while working away from home. Not to worry, it’s still a quick 10-minute drive to places like the Dubai International Financial Centre, so you know you’ll be kept fully in the loop.
