Regional real estate heavyweight Emaar’s Address Downtown hotel in Dubai has been named as the Best Luxury Hotel in Dubai at the International Hotel Awards 2018.
The International Hotel Awards determine the finest hotels and hospitality companies in the world and was developed to identify, highlight and reward excellence throughout the global hospitality industry across a wide range of areas. The awards evolved from the long-established International Property Awards, which are regarded as the definitive awards programme focused on residential and commercial sectors.
As Emaar’s first foray into the hospitality sector, the 63-storey flagship property launched the successful Address hotel brand in 2008. Since then, the developer has launched various other Address properties in Dubai, in the UAE. The hotel comprises 220 guestrooms, 626 luxury serviced apartments, three floors of F&B outlets, a podium-level pool, fitness centre and spa facilities. Emaar contracted interior design studio, Meyer Davis New York, to produce a fresh, contemporary and inspired redesign for the hotel in 2016.
SSH was initially contracted by Meyer Davis Studio, Inc. (MDSI) as the designer’s local representation to interact with Emaar’s design team on the development of the property design, provide co-ordination with other consulting parties for MEP, façade, landscape, and HSE, and locally source materials to meet the completion programme.
During the installation phase of the project, Emaar retained the services of SSH to oversee the integrity of the design and installation by the Main Contractor, Dutco, and sub-contractors, Fino and Interiors International.
Set in the heart of the Downtown Dubai area, the refurbished hotel has further cemented its iconic status as the flagship of the Address luxury hospitality brand with its success at the International Hotel Awards.
“SSH’s team for the Address Downtown worked intimately with Emaar’s design team to follow through on the new vision for the hotel,” said Marlaine Collins, Lead Interior Architect at SSH. “We are delighted the hotel’s redesign contributed to its successful award win and hope that guests staying at the hotel continue to enjoy its refreshed contemporary atmosphere, while experiencing the same excellence they would come to expect of the Address brand.”
She added: “On behalf of SSH, I heartily congratulate Emaar and the Address Downtown on its success.”
