The new hotels and serviced apartments, to be built by individual investors, will be of various star categories and significantly enhance the three hotels currently operational within DIP. They will include a 303-room Premier Inn, 165-room Courtyard by Marriott and the 252-room Armada Hotel, with operators of luxury hotel chains managing the new properties, the statement said. With the new projects, the total number of hotel rooms within DIP will increase to approximately 2,000, as Dubai expects to attract as many as 25 million visitors during Expo 2020 – to be held between October 2020 and April 2021.
