Sofitel The Palace, Dubai

Sofitel is continuing its expansion in the Middle East, with the opening in July 2007, of a second hotel in Dubai, Sofitel The Palace. The latest addition to Dubai’s famed-hospitality sector is situated at the heart of one of the latest and most spectacular projects, The Old Town Island, which is part of the Downtown Burj Dubai development by Emaar Properties. A harmonious blend of the past and present, The Old Town Island is being conceived as a traditional village, faced with a striking symbol of modernity. It provides unobstructed views of Burj Dubai, on its course to becoming the tallest building in the world.
