Deluxe Skyscraper Lodging on Sheikh Zayed Road

Tower of Hospitality 

Known for its central location, attentive staff, and a 43-story building, the Dubai Shangri-La Hotel first opened in 2003. It's the first United Arab Emirates property to open under management of the Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts chain.

Dubai's Shangri-La has a chic bar, a lounge, an opulent buffet restaurant called the Dunes Café, and three table service restaurants: Shang Palace for Cantonese food, Marrakech for contemporary Moroccan, and Hoi Ann for Vietnamese.

The building's fourth floor houses the Shangri-La health club facilities, which consist of outdoor and indoor pools, a gym with high-quality cardio and weight training equipment, and a spa that offers a full menu of traditional Chinese medicine treatments. The outdoor pool area is particularly popular, especially at night during the non-summer months, when the ikandy nightclub sets up shop there.

For Those Who Like to Soak 

The Shangri-La's 301 rooms are designed with stark, modern decor accented with natural wood paneling and furnishings, creating a serene yet inviting atmosphere.

All rooms come equipped with premium satellite TVs, self-service hot drinks, and bathrooms with bathrobes, extra-deep bathtubs, and walk-in showers with rain showerheads. The hotel also offers complementary Wi-Fi, local calls, shoe shines, newspapers, and parking.

The Horizon Club-level rooms are exceptionally popular with business travelers because they come with unlimited access to the business-friendly Horizon Club, which serves breakfast every morning, refreshments all day long, and cocktails in the evenings.

Dubai's Main Attractions via Metro

Just a quarter-hour drive from Dubai International Airport, the Shangri-La is situated right on the city center thoroughfare, named Sheikh Zayed Road. Reasonably priced taxis are abundant in the area.

Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world, is just a few blocks away, and Jumeirah Beach Park is less than a five-minute journey by car. Admission to the beautifully landscaped coastal park is free, but for a reasonable fee, you can set up camp on the sand with a lounge chair, an umbrella, and a towel. 

Also nearby is the Emirates Mall, with its jaw-dropping array of shopping options and the indoor slopes of Ski Dubai. From the hotel you can also catch a free shuttle bus to the Dubai Mall, or you can walk just five minutes, and you're at the Financial Centre Metro Station, where you can ride the rails to any number of destinations around town.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking to stay in Dubai's city center, the Shangri-La Hotel is a solid luxury high-rise option. From here it's easy to get to all of the city's top points of interest, and the views of Dubai's urban sprawl are spectacular, especially at night. The Shangri-La chain's other Dubai property, the Traders Hotel, is located in the historic neighborhood of Deira, for easy access to the airport and the souk-style markets, while the 43-story Shangri-La Hotel offers contemporary style that's ritzy, yet inviting.

Known as the hotel where Hollywood’s stars choose to stay... this is one of Dubai’s swankiest, with a dramatic lobby, posh rooms and splendid restaurants.
The 43-story Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai is situated on Sheikh Zayed Road, close to Dubai's tourist and business districts and nearby the Dubai International Airport.
