Jumeirah to enter Abu Dhabi in September

Quote:
By Waheed Abbas | Published Friday, July 15, 2011

Dubai-based hotel management group Jumeirah will enter Abu Dhabi later this year with the opening of five-star hotel at Etihad Towers.

It will be the first hotel under management of Jumeirah Group in the UAE capital. The hotel will launch booking prior to its soft opening slated for September, a hotel reservation booking official told Emirates 24l7.

This complex looks as "inspiring" to me as the GM HQ in Detroit.

The overall quality and execution of this complex seems to be awesome, yeah. But the design is somewhat pale. 5 towers, with the same design, just with different heights, nah idk. I hope they will get TALL friends around, which will nest it, into a new AD cluster. :-) And yeah, i prefer AD over Dubai.

I said this many times before, but I really, really wish people would stop comparing Abu Dhabi to Dubai. It's apples and oranges.

that would ruin the effect, the contrast between these towers and Emirates Palace is ingenius.
