Dubai's Paramount Pictures Hotel Will Be a Movie Lover's Heaven
A few months ago, we told you about the new Paramount Pictures movie-themed hotel coming to Dubai. And now, we have a few more details on that project thanks to a recent interview in Hotelier Middle East.
In it, the CEO of Paramount Hotels & Resorts (keep in mind, this will be the company's first-ever hotel) explains that while Paramount Pictures is one of the biggest movie studios around, and its films are very well-known, people usually aren't able to connect the actual movies to the company (Grease, The Godfather, Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, and Forrest Gump were all Paramount movies, in case you were wondering).
Thus, the hotel will attempt to kill two birds with one stone: create the ultimate movie-lover's hotel experience, and by doing so, educate people on the impressive Paramount Pictures back catalog.
The CEO told HME:
"In-room entertainment will be home theatre surround systems inside the guestrooms as a minimum because I’m convinced that this will be a top expectation from all our guests.
We’ll look at themes for the entertainment throughout the year; give each month a theme, so in February with Valentine’s Day it could be love films. The hotels will also have a screening room; a high-end luxury theatre with lounge seating, a multi-functional environment."
Dang right that's gonna a top expectation from guests! We've never actually encountered a home theatre surround system in any guestroom we've stayed in, but we can tell you we certainly wouldn't be opposed to the idea of one. And the high-end luxury theatre with lounge seating? Inside a hotel? Did this guy just read our minds, or what?
Do you think this hotel will be where movie buffs go to die? Or will it be just another fluffy Dubai tourist attraction? Share your thoughts below!
