Commenting on his appointment, Richard Senior said, ďfor me it is a landmark move to Best Westernís first hotels in Dubai and the UAE and I am very much looking forward to the challenge of directing commercial operations. The Best Western Premier Dhow Palace has already carved a niche amongst business and tourist travelers for excellent standards of service and amenities. Additionally, the opportunity to be opening Best Westernís first new property in Dubai is very exciting for me.Ē
