IHG has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Dubai with the opening of the InterContinental Dubai Marina, an 132-room hotel with 196 fully serviced InterContinental Residential Suites.

Part of the Bay Central development in the heart of Dubai Marina, the hotel is located within walking distance of the Dubai tram and metro, and local tourist attractions including Jumeirah Beach Road. The Walk on JBR, which offers a variety of restaurants and shops, is only five minutes away.

The hotel is home to a collection of nine restaurants, lounges and bars, setting it up to be one of the new hot spots of Dubai, including, YNot, a wine and tapas bar; Accents, a restaurant and deli serving up dishes from around the globe; as well as Ginter a gin bar with one of Dubais largest gin collections, Gallery Lounge and Urban Shisha Lounge.

The jewel in the hotel's crown will be Marina Social restaurant - British, Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton's first in the Middle East - which will open later in September 2015.

The restaurant will also include an exclusive bar, The Social Room, with mixologists creating unique cocktails using an eclectic range of spirits from around the world, and will be host to one of the largest whisky collections in the city.

The hotels outdoor swimming pool has panoramic marina views, and guests can also relax in the male and female spas. Gym facilities offer separate weight and cardio rooms accessible 24 hours a day for hotel guests.
