Dubai's Media One Hotel is scheduled to open in October


Located in Dubai Media City and formerly called The Square Media One Dubai, the Al-Jaber Group-owned Media One Hotel will now be independently managed.


General manager Cora De Conceicao-Stuart said: “We are all incredibly excited about our imminent opening. The whole team is driven by a tremendous amount of energy and passion, and the speed with which preparations are coming along is truly remarkable.

“It is also important for us to recognise and thank the authorities for their unwavering support and encouragement, most notably the Dubai Municipality, Dubai Police, Dubai Department of Commerce and Tourism Marketing (DTCM) and TECOM.” The hotel, part of a mixed-use development, has been classed as an “upscale four-star” property by DTCM.

It comprises the first 23 floors of a 43-storey tower and will feature 260 guest rooms, F&B outlets including a lounge-style terrace bar and Mediterranean restaurant, a business centre, seven meeting rooms, a gym and an outdoor pool.

De Conceicao-Stuart said: “Trendy, inspiring and fun — this is what Media One Hotel stands for. From the various quirky design elements through to the unique guest service we will offer, it’s all about being young, vibrant and stylish in everything we do. Media One will be a hotel with a difference — a hotel with an edge”.

This would be achieved, she explained, through its “Go Beyond” philosophy, which aims to go “further than ever in an effort to continuously surprise and delight guests”.

Media One Hotel director of sales and marketing Richard Senior added: “We will be a predominantly corporate focused hotel and anticipate that the majority of our business will come from the firms found in and around Media City.”
