Located mere metres from the heart of Dubai, Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre could not be more central.
Just 10 short minutes from the spectacular Burj Khalifa, the gargantuan Dubai Mall, and the fascinating Museum of the Future, this luxury hotel is surrounded by the city’s most exciting attractions.
A slice of exquisite 1960s New York design in an ultra-modern Middle-Eastern city, you’ll be blown away by the hotel’s sophisticated decor and clever layout.
If its super-central location is what attracts guests to the hotel, the selection of very high-quality luxury amenities and useful extras is definitely what keeps guests returning year after year. Recently, Waldorf Astoria DIFC earned a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award for its opulent interiors, top amenities and dining options.
State-of-the-art meeting spaces are perfect for professionals, offering a residential feel. And with a range of gorgeous suites for you and your associates to choose from, Waldorf Astoria DIFC is simply one of Dubai’s best luxury hotels, whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure.
The largest rooms in downtown Dubai and the DIFC make this luxury hotel one of the most sought-after in the region for those looking for a slice of the high life.
Guests may choose to stay at larger residential suites equipped with all you could need for longer stays. Twenty-eight units are located from the 51st to the 55th floors and provide you with a home away from home.
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow panoramic views of the city, while chic decor and a pared-back interior colour palette are contemporary and fresh. Choose from the stunningly beautiful residential suites or enquire about larger units located between the 27th and 50th floors of the hotel to get a true taste of Dubai’s legendary luxury.
The spectacular Presidential Suite at the Waldorf Astoria has to be seen to be believed. Spread out over a vast 409 square metres, you would be forgiven for expecting a view of New York’s Central Park when you approach the windows.
Sumptuous decor and gorgeously chic furnishings make it an invitingly sophisticated space and the perfect base to explore Dubai, with help from your own personal concierge, who is on hand 24/7 to help with any request.
Dubai has its fair share of luxe restaurants and bars, but the selection of award-winning eateries and gastronomic experiences at the Waldorf Astoria is beyond compare.
Bull & Bear
Impeccable service underlines the high-quality dining experience at Bull & Bear. Once located at the original Waldorf Astoria in New York, lazy Sunday breakfasts, business lunches and soulful themed nights are all features of this very modern take on a gourmet steakhouse.
Another eatery inspired by a restaurant of the same name in the Waldorf Astoria New York, Peacock Alley is a feast for the senses. Mouth-wateringly delicious tea is accompanied by savoury and sweet treats, served in the context of glamorous decor with top service standards.
Transporting you into a scene out of Mad Men, Peacock Alley’s Cigar Lounge is decked out in elegant 1960s-inspired decor and is framed by skyline views. A cigar sommelier will guide you on a journey of the senses and give you insight into the world of cigars.
Many a guest would be forgiven for being late to a meeting after a therapeutic morning swim in this rooftop swimming pool.
Serviced by the St. Trop restaurant, also located on the rooftop. Hot evenings by the pool overlooking the Dubai skyline, sipping on cocktails and sampling delectable French fare from the crystal clear swimming pool are a must during your stay here.
