The Biltmore Hotel and Residences at DIFC
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The Biltmore Hotel is a multifaceted project located near the end of Dubai International Financial Centre's retail spine. It consists of a hotel tower, serviced apartments, and a lifestyle/entertainment centre – all of which embody a contemporary design yet reflect, and are inspired by, the original Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
The hotel tower hosts 160 keys and offers a variety of beautiful views – the majestic Burj Khalifa to the south, and the elegant DIFC retail spine to the north.
The Biltmore Residence is the serviced apartments tower – home to 240 stylish units. It also hosts a selection of restaurants that connect to the podium pool deck – which is shared between the hotel and the residences.
The Grove is the lifestyle and entertainment centre. It consists of the podium that sits under the serviced apartments and offers a range of amenities and services. These include a spa, health and wellbeing centre, a three-level sports centre, retail outlets, restaurants, a club and a lounge.
Glass is used as the main façade material for the two towers, and imparts a contemporary feel reflecting a new era. In contrast, the podium features windows and limestone – recreating a classic grace that is reminiscent of the original Biltmore Hotel.
