The Fairmont is the quintessential Dubai hotel – sleek, sophisticated, and with an impressive battalion of facilities to please its well-heeled guests. Located in the heart of downtown, on Sheikh Zayed Road near the Trade Centre, you can get to most of Dubai’s sights within a 10-15 minute taxi ride. The Fairmont is where Dubai’s movers and shakers gather for a drink at Cin Cin or dinner at the Exchange Grill. The Friday Champagne Brunch at Spectrum On One is one of the best in Dubai, with free-flowing Moët & Chandon. For chilling out, head for the stunning rooftop pools, while spa connoisseurs will enjoy the Willow Tree Spa. For some late night excitement, get on the guest list for the 400 Club, where Dubai’s social butterflies are found dancing in their designer-wear best. The Fairmont is a high-powered hotel that consistently delivers, a good choice for those seeking glamour without glitz.
