In the know
- Our favourite rooms All the hotel's rooms are modishly styled with contemporary muted colourways 'inspired by the landscapes of Arabia' (stone, sea, sand, sunset). Spa Suites and Tower Suites have outdoor terraces, which are lovely in the cooler months. Spa Suites are our favourite option for cooler months, as their terraces have daybeds, dining tables and an alfresco soaking tub.
- Packing tips Sunglasses – in fact, pack two pairs, because you’ll go crazy without them. Pashmina/cashmere wrap – essential when the air-con’s on full blast. Swimsuit: you’ll want to do at least one circuit of the pool’s circular channel.
- Also All common areas are wheelchair accessible and guestrooms are fitted with specially adapted bathrooms. If you need to direct a taxi there, tell your driver it’s behind the new Dubai Mall near the Burj Khalifa. If you’re staying in a higher room category, you’ll get a private-limo transfer and an escort from the Address’ private airport lounge right to your room.
Food and drink at The Address Downtown Dubai
- Hotel restaurant The Address has eight restaurants and bars, serving everything from coffee and cake to caviar and cocktails, so you definitely won’t go hungry. Our favourites are Hukuma, Dubai’s answer to Hakkasan; Fazaris, with its live Medi-Middle Eastern kitchens; and lobby diner Risala for mezze and snacks.
- Dress code The smarter side of smart casual: shorts at dinner are a no-no; a DvF wrap dress will work everywhere.
- Top table Hard to pick one when there’s so much choice, but gazing out of Neos’ floor-to-ceiling glazing is pretty amazing; or grab an alfresco coffee at the Saha Café in front of the Dubai Fountain.
- Last orders A choice of Continental and American breakfasts are served in Fazaris from 6am to 11am. Fazaris serves food latest, closing its doors at midnight; the Cigar Lounge, Neos and Calabar pull down the shutters at 2.30am.
- Room service An à la carte menu with dishes representing the Address’ many restaurant kitchens can be ordered 24 hours a day.
- Hotel bar Award-winning Neos is currently Dubai’s highest bar, towering over the Old Town on the 63rd floor. Lap up those panoramic views while you sip on fancy cocktails and nibble fine-dining delicacies such as oysters. Other options include a nightcap and a smoke in the cool Cigar Lounge on the 13th floor, or Latin lounge beats courtesy of Calabar’s resident DJ. During the day, pool bar Zeta quenches thirsts and staves off snack attacks.
