Fodor's Expert Review Emirates Towers
Sheikh Zayed Rd., Zaabeel 2, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Emirates Towers is an icon and a favorite of wealthy business travelers who consistently vote it one of the world's best. The triangular building displays acres of structural metal, with transparent walls rising up through soaring cathedral-like proportions, and gray and black marble accenting the natural light. The furnishings have sensuous curves, contrasting with the sharp angles of the structure itself. Rooms take a "less is more" approach,Scandinavian- in style, with touches of art nouveau. One floor is dedicated solely to women guests, with all female staff and Chopard in-room cosmetics fridges - like a mini-bar for beauty. The many eateries on-site and below at the Boulevard mall (including Hakkasan, The Ivy, and La Cantine du Faubourg) are a magnet for resident expats, as is the excellent Talise spa and fitness center.
