The 4-star Grand Excelsior Bur Dubai has fast become an icon of the United Arab Emirates, and a major Dubai attraction in itself. Inspired by some of the world’s largest and most luxurious ships, this hotel has been built in the shape of a cruise liner, offering a unique way to experience the beauty of the ocean... from the land!
There are 282 guest rooms at the Grand Excelsior Bur Dubai, each designed to mimic opulent cruise ship cabins with nautical blue colour palettes and rich brown furniture. Each room offers a mini bar, LCD TV, air conditioning, and spacious private bathroom with jetted spa tub. Some rooms command excellent views of the world’s tallest building: the Burj Khalifa! You can choose from four fantastic restaurants, including the Docklands buffet, the business-friendly Dhow Cafe, the Dugout Sports Bar, and the Asian-inspired Gypsy Chinese. Also on site are many fitness and relaxation facilities, such as the gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and spa.
Located right in the heart of Dubai City, the Grand Excelsior Bur Dubai is close to many of the most well known sights and attractions, including the Al Fahidi Historical District, and the Etihad Museum. This hotel is also an excellent choice for travellers who love to shop, with a free shuttle service direct from the resort to the nearby BurJuman Mall and the Mercato Mall. Although parking is available on site, there's no need to hire a car to see the sights - the hotel is well served by two Dubai metro stations.
