The Westin Al Habtoor City is almost ready to open its doors – here’s what the huge hotel will look like inside…

Al Habtoor City is taking shape – the St Regis is well and truly established (even if the access remains confusing), the W Hotel has just opened and the Westin is due to open on September 15.

Before we know it this huge development right next to the Dubai Canal, near Business Bay and just off of Sheikh Zayed Road will be complete.

As for The Westin, the 41-storey, 1,004 room hotel will have three outdoor swimming pools, six restaurants, a yoga studio and a 20-treatment-room Heavenly Spa.

It will also be right next to the 1,400 seater Dragone Theatre (which will bring a permanent Vegas-style aqua show to the city).

There will also be a dining complex in the centre of the new ‘city’ called The Atrium: it will be in the centre of the three new hotels and will have seven different restaurants and bars spread across five levels.

A quick tour of The Westin…

For starters, the view is spectacular.

The bedrooms have that ‘touch of Great Gatsby’ style that’s also seen in the St Regis hotel.

Oh, and fantastic Business Bay views too…

The light fittings appear to have disco balls in them…


The ballroom looks properly massive…


There will be a gastropub called Cook Hall Dubai in the hotel for those of you that love a well-cooked roast…

And the other details like the bathrooms and staircase? All opulence plus, plus.
