Arguably the best looking EDITION hotel; first hotel of its kind in Dubai with elevated style, materials, and design language. The EDITION collection celebrates the diversity of cities across the world, reflecting the best of cultural and social environments and a new generation of understated luxury.

Based in the heart of Dubai, the EDITION hotel has been designed with an elegant urban character, responding to the sophisticated nature of its unique location and grain of the city. An impressive 100-metre-high tower sits atop a podium rotated 45 degrees off-axis to maximise views of the nearby Burj Khalifa. The views from the hotel are celebrated throughout.

The exquisitely crafted façade is a blend of bronze screens, subtly textured grey cladding, natural stone and timber. The neutral colour palettes accentuate the glazed frontages. Each room extends outside with a large glazed balcony creating a rhythmic feeling to the building. The floor-to-ceiling windows accentuate the impressive sculptural internal double and triple-height spaces, filling them with natural light.
