With its transition from a small trading port to a thriving city in a remarkably short time, Dubai has become a flourishing success story. The United Arab Emirates' most populous metropolis is a combination of striking and ambitious architecture, sun-burned dunes, and an azure coastline. It is easy to get to the city, as Dubai is well served by world-class airports, several ports, and a choice of highways and bus routes.
Dubai has countless hotels and resorts — ranging from opulent to standard — to suit every taste, whim, and budget. Most hotels are located within a 30-minute ride from Dubai International Airport, and the larger hotels provide airport shuttles and minibus services to the main tourist and shopping spots.
The city's iconic business hotels include Grand Hyatt, with 674 rooms and 86,000 square feet of event space, encompassing two ballrooms, 22 live kitchens, 14 meeting rooms, and several outdoor venues. Dubai is also home to the world's tallest hotel, the Gevora Hotel, with 528 keys, and the second-tallest, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, which has more than 1,600 guest rooms and suites. Other options include the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, which has a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 350 people, and the Sofitel Dubai Downtown, which has 12 meeting rooms plus the enormous Diamond Ballroom. For large-scale conferences and exhibitions, the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), located at the heart of the Dubai World Trade Centre, offers more than 1.3 million square feet of flexible and configurable space. The DICEC also has a wide range of meeting rooms for smaller, but no less essential, company events such as trainings and seminars.
