Abu Dhabi, April 14, 2010
Premier Inn, the UK’s biggest value-for-money hotel brand, has begun building its first hotel in Abu Dhabi and fourth in the UAE, at a prime location within Adnec’s Capital Centre.
The new hotel, to be ready by September 2011, will have 242 rooms, with the cost of development reaching Dh120 million.
“Capital Centre’s excellent infrastructure and proximity to Abu Dhabi’s superb new events facility makes it an ideal location for Premier Inn,” said Darroch Crawford, managing director of Premier Inn Middle East.
Capital Centre, master-planned by Adnec(Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company) is a micro-city of 23 mixed-use towers, including seven hotels.
The new hotel in Abu Dhabi will have 242 rooms and will be capable of comfortably accommodating a family of up to four.
The hotel will also offer a contemporary restaurant (Bedouinns), a bar (The Retreat), and a Costa Coffee outlet. A podium sundeck will feature a swimming pool and whirlpool spa.
Premier Inn already has three other hotels in the UAE, at Dubai Investments Park, Dubai Silicon Oasis and Dubai International Airport.-TradeArabia News Service
