Address Dubai Mall

Address Dubai Mall is part of the premium luxury hotel group Address Hotels + Resorts, and connects directly to The Dubai Mall which is a big plus for shopping fans. The hotel has a step-free building entrance, large elevators, and plenty of space in the lobby and main hotel restaurant.  The accessible guest rooms are quite spacious, especially around the bed. The bed height is appropriate and there is a roll-in shower, and grab bars next to the toilet too. Meanwhile, wheelchair ramps lead to the hotel lounge, pool, and private cabanas, as well as to the large fitness area allowing wheelchair users to roll easily between equipment.

Atlantis, The Palm

Located on Palm Jumeirah, Atlantis, The Palm is one of the largest hotels in Dubai with varied attractions and dining options. The lobby, many restaurants, fitness centre, and some pool areas have step-free access. There's also a wheelchair ramp available to reach a private beach. The elevators, accessible guest rooms and bathrooms are quite spacious. The latter have roll-in showers with foldable chairs attached to the wall and grab bars next to the toilet. One of the many attractions here is The Lost Chambers Aquarium which has step-free access and displays that stretch from the ground to the ceiling making it easy for disabled guests to view.

Address Dubai Marina

Another popular property by Address Hotels + Resorts, the Address Dubai Marina has a step-free entrance, large elevators to other floors, as well as step-free access to the poolside and spacious fitness area. The accessible guest rooms have beds with an ideal height and plenty of space around them. The bathrooms have roll-in showers and grab bars next to the toilet. We recommend requesting a room overlooking the Dubai Marina with beautiful views of the harbour framed by some of the tallest residential towers in the world.

Jumeirah Al Qasr

As the centerpiece of Madinat Jumeirah resort, this hotel features inspired Arabian architecture and is only a short distance away from Jumeirah Beach and Burj Al Arab.

The hotel has step-free access and a large elevator to reach other floors. The accessible guestrooms are a decent size and plenty of space around the bed. The bathrooms have roll-in showers with shower benches attached to the walls. Please note that many of the facilities are spread out over a large area. However, the pathways are even and smooth, and invite guests for longer sojourns throughout this charming property.

Grand Hyatt Dubai

Not far from the famous Dubai Creek, the Grand Hyatt Dubai belongs to a great collection of luxury city resorts. With ramps in front of the hotel entrance, various restaurants and pool, the hotel is well equipped to welcome people of determination. The lobby, elevators, restaurants, and accessible guest rooms are spacious with bathrooms featuring roll-in showers and grab bars next to the toilet. One of the hotel’s many highlights is the large resort-style pool. Please note that there is no disabled pool lift. However, one part of the pool has roll-in access, while another one has just a few steps descending smoothly into the water.

JW Marriott Marquis Dubai

With two iconic twin towers that are both 355m tall, the JW Marriott Marquis is the world’s second tallest hotel. Located alongside Dubai Water Canal, the hotel has step-free access to the lobby, various restaurants, and pool area. The accessible guest rooms are quite spacious. The bathrooms have grab bars on both sides of the toilet, a roll-in shower with a handheld shower nozzle, and a chair attached to the wall. Our tip: One of the hotels’ numerous gastronomic offerings is VAULT, a popular lounge on the 71st and 72nd floor with panoramic views of the city.

There are fairly large elevators, accessible guest rooms, and bathrooms with roll-in showers and foldable chairs attached to the wall. The fitness centre has a step-free entrance, plenty of space and is one of the very few to offer a hand-cycle machine. Our tip: Visit the spacious Eve Penthouse & Lounge on the 34th floor which has even floors all around, while offering stunning views of the skyline and excellent international cuisine.
