Bazaar checks into the fashionable new addition to Business Bay

Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai, opened its doors earlier this month to a huge fanfare. Gwen Stefani put on a spectacular show, attracting the city's trendsetters to the new hangout.

“The spectacular new Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai is theatrical, unexpected and sets the stage for discovering Dubai’s newest neighborhood,” said Brian Povinelli, senior vice president & global brand leader, Renaissance Hotels. “With its bold, artful design, vibrant global dining scene and engaging experiences around every corner, the hotel embraces a spirit that inspires guests to discover something wonderfully new every time they travel.” 

With 298 guestrooms, including 65 sprawling suites, along with a thoughtful design that incorporates elements from local artists, there's plenty for the stylish traveller to explore. Restaurants include Bleu Blanc & BASTA!, which reflect a Southern French farmhouse and an urban interpretation of a Roman trattoria, and BHAR, the Arabic word for spice. Chef Masaharu Morimoto will also be opening the first UAE branch of his eponymous restaurant.
