Hard Rock Hotels to debut in Dubai in 2015

Hard Rock International has announced that it will debut its Hard Rocks Hotels brand in the Middle East next year.

The new Hard Rock Hotel Dubai Marina is scheduled to open in the Marina 101 tower in Dubai in the third quarter of 2015.

The luxury hotel will have 281 guest rooms and suites and it will occupy the first 33 floors of the Marina 101 tower and will cost an estimated Dh600 million.

Hamish Dodds, the Chief Executive of Hard Rock International said that the company chose to open a property in Dubai Marina due to its central location in the bustling United Arab Emirate.

"This is a central and urban location in proximity to Dubai Media City, the university and everything else,” explained Dodds. “It is a hub for entertainment and business. It makes a lot of sense to be where there is a huge concentration of activity.

The hotel will have two restaurants in the lobby as well as a stylish lounge and a restaurant on the 101st floor. The top-floor lounge and restaurant will operate under a “Hard Rock- ADFG luxury brand”.

Hard Rock International already operates a Hard Rock Cafe at Dubai Festival City, and it has no plans to open a second Hard Rock-branded café in the city.

The hotel company is planning to open a 378-room Hard Rock Hotel with a café in Abu Dhabi in 2017, and a hotel in Ras Al Khaimah in the future.

The top 68 floors of the Marina 101 tower in Dubai will have serviced apartments and the property, which is being developed by Sheffield Holdings, is expected to be second tallest building in the United Arab Emirates.

Hard Rock International operates 181 venues worldwide including 20 hotels Hard Rock Hotel and Casinos in destinations such as Hollywood, Cancun, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, San Diego, Bali and Singapore
