According to the hotel’s general manager, Roudi Soubra, the 300-room property achieved a year-to-date occupancy of 89% per cent, at least 12% percentage points higher than the capital’s average.
He also told more than 200 guests attending the first birthday celebration that that the hotel is named as one of the top five hotels in Abu Dhabi by Trip Advisor’s customer reviews.
The fun-filled air travel-themed event was supported by the hotel’s F&B partners, Emirates Leisure Retail.
“It has been such a joy to open and manage this flagship Premier Inn in Abu Dhabi. The results speak for themselves and I extend appreciation to Abu Dhabi Airports for their help in delivering such a great property, and in particular the foresight to provide direct connectivity from the hotel to Airport Terminals 1 and 3,” he said.
