Yes, the hotel needs a refurbishment. I am staying in that hotel since it was opened early in the 80s and it is my home away from home and I am looking forward to the 'new' hotel and I am sure it will be spectacular.

This hotel was also refurbished a decade ago at a cost of around 45 Million US Dollars

To me this hotel has always been the classiest of all the the top rung of hostelries in Dubai, discrete, unpretentious and completely in the service of us, the guests. Nice to see it is going to get a new life.
