Hard Rock International, in partnership with Tasameem Group, announces the development of Hard Rock Hotel Dubai - an international five-star hotel property within the Dubai Trade Centre District and Dubai Exhibition City, an area poised to become the 'Financial Centre' of Dubai.

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, November 15 - 2007 at 15:52 PRESS RELEASE


With the opening of Hard Rock Hotel Dubai, situated among one of Dubai's most ambitious and strategically important commercial projects, Hard Rock continues a commitment to expand and diversify its global portfolio.

Hard Rock Hotel Dubai will be located in the most central parts of the Dubai World Trade Center and Dubai Exhibition Center along Sheikh Zayed Road, home to Dubai's magnificent skyscrapers, including the Emirates Towers and the tallest building in the world, the Burj Dubai. Hard Rock Hotel Dubai will be among the most coveted luxury hotel options in an area primed to rival the business centers of Singapore, New York and London.

'We are thrilled to be entering a world-class hotel with Tasameem Group,' says Trevor Horwell, Vice President, Hard Rock Hotels.

'We place fundamental importance in aligning ourselves with such highly reputable partners. With Tasameem's credentials and leadership we look forward to a successful project in the execution of the Groups' vision.'

Hard Rock Hotel Dubai will be part of a multimillion dollar project and will be designed to match the world's highest standards of architecture and environmental sustainability. The entire center will encompass 350 hotel rooms and suites, 100 serviced apartments, commercial offices and retail stores all within the 91 story skyscraper.

Hard Rock Hotel Dubai guest rooms will be furnished to meet international five-star deluxe standards, incorporating Hard Rock's tradition of providing luxury, quality service and amenities with a unique rock 'n' roll edge. The hotel will contain destination dining venues, all-day restaurants and high-energy bar locations, offering both locals and hotel guests a place to see and be seen. The hotel will offer approximately 32,000 square feet of dedicated meeting and banquet space, as well as spa facilities featuring an extensive menu of spa treatments. The pool, a quintessential Hard Rock element, will be a focal arena for both music and relaxation and a social gathering place for high net worth individuals and glamour seekers alike.

"The Seminole Tribe of Florida, the parent company to Hard Rock International, takes great pride in announcing our partnership to develop the first Hard Rock Hotel in the UAE,' notes Mitchell Cypress, Chairman of Seminole Tribe of Florida. 'Dubai has incredible upside as an international destination and we are excited to introduce our hotel product in this burgeoning city.'

The Hard Rock Hotel experience offers luxurious style and substance with a unique rock vibe designed to provide unforgettable experiences. Properties are ideally situated in destinations with unique character, tourist appeal and gateway cities. Hard Rock Hotels cater to the evolving and distinctive needs of today's experienced, modern travelers, who seek a reprieve from traditional, predictable properties, whether for business or leisure travel. For 10 years the Hard Rock Cafe Dubai has served visitors and locals at Interchange #5, Sheikh Zayed Rd. The cafe will remain in its current location.

That is some design. Very unique. Looks good right now, although I'd like to see a few more renderings. Is it just me or does it seem to have a hole in the middle?

No, I think you are right, that does look like a hole in the lower half

Ok, so it appears this has been approved and is NOT a proposal

Will a moderator please do the needful?

Dubai, it's about time to stop booming

What a great tower. I hope they decide to rather build this in Frankfurt

The idea of a Hard Rock Hotel in Dubai is old. I remember when the owner of franchise for the Hard Rock Cafe in Dubai was talking about it some 3 - 4 years ago.

Oh, and ... LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL
