Accor Hospitality Middle East and Majid Al Futtaim Properties announced the launch of the first Pullman hotel in the Middle East yesterday.
The 5-star Pullman Mall of the Emirates will offer 481 rooms (including 94 suites) and will mainly cater to business travellers.
It is expected to open in the latter half of 2010 and will be situated at the Mall of the Emirates in Al Barsha.
Pullman is Accor’s upscale business hotel brand. The first Pullman hotel opened in 2007. By 2015 Accor predict there will be around 300 Pullman properties.
In 2011, the Novotel Deira City Centre will be re-branded as a Pullman hotel following an extensive refurbishment project.
