Cristal Hotels and Resorts, one of Abu Dhabis fastest growing hotel chains, has reported an 84% average occupancy rate in January 2010. The figure is in line with the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority's (ADTA) 10% growth forecast in hotel guests in the emirate this year.

Abu Dhabi accommodated around 1.5 million hotel guests in 2009, which according to ADTA will grow to 2.3 million by 2012 when the emirate's hotel capacity reaches over 27,000 rooms.

Peter Blackburn, General Manager, Cristal Hotel Abu Dhabi, said, "2009 was a remarkable year for us despite starting operations only around the third quarter and we are pleased to have carried the momentum through to 2010. As UAE residents and citizens often prefer to stay in local brand hotels, Cristal Hotel has introduced a new brand of hospitality with a distinct local taste, which has been a key factor in our consistently strong market performance."

Located at the heart of Abu Dhabi's business district, the 4-star Cristal Hotel caters to both business guests and tourists and is one of the few completely dry (no alcohol) hotels in Abu Dhabi. Cristal Hotel offers a total of 192 rooms and suites, all equipped with high-speed internet connectivity, executive desk and IDD interactive telephone with voice mail. Other premium facilities of Cristal Hotel include an executive lounge, the exclusive Cristal Spa, an in-door swimming pool, sauna, and a beauty salon.

In addition, the meeting rooms and business centre offer an excellent view of the city's skyline.
