Supposedly, Hotel Rooms In Dubai Aren't Getting Any Cheaper
We don't really like being the bearer of bad news, we'd much prefer turning hotel lemons into lemonade. So when we heard room rates in Dubai were skyrocketing, we thought to ourselves, 'Really? With all those hotels, there must be at least some deals to be found.'
At the start of 2012, rising room rates had reportedly placed Dubai on top of Hong Kong, London, New York, Tokyo and Paris in terms of occupancy levels. AMEinfo reported that the hotel room count actually increased by almost 20,000 rooms between 2008 and 2012.
But we thought we'd take a quick look at what rooms are happening right now, and how much they're happening for.
For the first week of June, we found starting rates of $131/night for the Radisson Blu Royal, $128/night at Le Meridien, $217/night at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah and $98/night at the Traders Hotel Dubai, none of which are all that bad.
Of course, if you're planning on staying in places like Al Maha Desert Resort or Armani Dubai or Atlantis, The Palm (where Kim Kardashian stayed), then, yeah, you're going to be forking over quite a bit. But if it's just the mid-range Dubai hotel experience you're after, we say there's still room left for deals.
