A new breed of slick hotels is popping up in Dubai’s Downtown district, combining sleek, sometimes minimalist, design with quirky interiors for the switched-on globetrotting crowd. These hotels tap into the new travel desire to seamlessly connect travellers to local experiences, with features like in-house DJs, 24-hour gyms and non-traditional lobby spaces the norm.

W Hotel

Located in the fresh new hotel district of Al Habtoor City, this high-rise hotel stays true to its brand of contemporary meets un-ordinary. Guests are greeted in a psychedelic, electric blue, black and white lobby, accented with a larger-than-life W, before being escorted to the 30th floor to check in. Designed by Singapore-based firm Silverfox Studios, the 33-storey hotel is said to be inspired by the always-in-motion location of Sheikh Zayed Road. Rooms offer spectacular views overlooking the highway and the soon-to-open Dubai Canal and feature a fluid bathroom to bedroom concept. They're decked out in hues of white and grey, dotted with neon wall art and cushions. Some even offer built-in DJ booths.

Talking point: Street-facing showers with full-length, un-tinted glass windows.

Rove Downtown Dubai 


Designed with the urban traveller in mind, Rove Downtown Dubai is central, affordable and connected – checking off all the boxes for their millennial clientele. Just a walk away from the tallest building in the world, the 828m Burj Khalifa, the 420-room hotel invites guests to self-check in using dedicated stations before heading out to “explore without borders”, their catchphrase. The hotel commissioned local artists including photographer Alia Al Shamsi and Emirati illustrator Khalid Mezaina, to create contemporary artwork that greets guests. Word art decals include #Relax, or “This is where I am”. On hand are a 24-hour gym, laundry, and seamless connectivity. Plus, for those who want to sleep in, they offer late checkout at 2pm.

Talking point: The wall of art featuring a hanging bicycle

Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai


Dubbed the original luxury beach club, Nikki Beach is inspired by the elements of beach, sky and sea, with an emphasis on all things simple and natural. “There’s nothing synthetic or over the top,” explains founder Jack Penrod. Each area of the resort, which opens December 2016, is designed to appeal to the senses, and reflect guests’ moods. The decor incorporates calming colours and light, offering a tranquil retreat. Free-flowing “good energy” is a key focus here, which might explain the all-white, flowing fabrics and earthy tones found on the five-star resort.

: All white everything.

Vida Downtown 


This chic Downtown Dubai hideout is also aiming for a younger, urban crowd. The interiors meld muted colours with minimalist décor in an open-plan lobby featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, and lofty bookshelves. Staying true to its Spanish name, literally meaning 'life', the 156-room property promises “life and warmth”, and the headspace to stimulate the minds of the entrepreneurs and creative types it hosts. Rooms feature white to neutral hues, with wood and animal print accents.

Talking point:
The 1960s Airstream that doubles up as the Vida Food Truck.
