Tucked between the business hub of Downtown's financial centre, The Dubai Mall and the surrounding boulevards of restaurants, the Sofitel Dubai Downtown is one of the city's newest additions and an ideal urban base. Rooms are modernist chic with cool neutrals, clean lines and bold hits of colour dominating the décor. Well-appointed meeting rooms and the business centre are a boon for working travellers and the restaurant is a top-notch option for colleague catch-ups. Those who want something a little more private, and perhaps celebratory, should ask for a hosted dinner at the Sky Table at The 31 Bar – seating up to six, this single alcove table has an impressive view of Dubai's dancing fountains against a backdrop of the glittering Burj Khalifa Tower.
Dubai's equivalent to an urban centre, Downtown encompasses some of the city's best-known landmarks, including the world's largest mall (The Dubai Mall) and world’s tallest building (the Burj Khalifa). The Dubai Mall metro station links to the restaurant boulevards below, as well as the Mall and the Burj Khalifa forecourt.
