The Elite Byblos Hotel combines upscale accommodation with a handy location for exploring downtown Dubai. Set on a bustling thoroughfare, the hotel is housed in a towering modern building with a partial glass façade, and is a few minutes’ walk from the sprawling Mall of the Emirates and Ski Dubai indoor ski resort. Both Dubai Marina, packed with high-end shops and eateries, and the Palm Jumeirah archipelago, home to the Aquaventure Waterpark, are around 15 minutes’ drive away, while the landmark Burj Khalifa skyscraper and Dubai Creek, dotted with floating restaurants and offering views of Dubai’s Old Town, are within a 25-minute drive of the hotel.
Elite Byblos Hotel features a dramatic atrium-style lobby with marble floors and bold patterned walls. There’s a smart lounge area and a 24-hour coffee shop. Guests can enjoy all-day international dining in the relaxed restaurant, take a dip in the city-view rooftop pool with its adjacent bar and Jacuzzi, and work out in the gym. Other amenities include an on-site spa, a kids’ area and a shuttle to the beach.

Higher-tariff rooms add sitting areas, while 1- and 2-bedroom suites come with separate living rooms and dining space. Some suites include access to a private lounge with complimentary drinks.
