Details revealed of $27mn Novotel Sharjah Expo
Business hotel scheduled for inauguration in first quarter of 2017
Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has revealed details of the $27mn (AED100mn) Novotel Sharjah Expo, a business hotel that will soon be inaugurated to serve the Emirate's various sectors and participants in the Expo Centre's numerous events.
During a press conference at the Arabian Travel Market, Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qassimi said that Novotel Sharjah Expo, which is scheduled for inauguration in the first quarter of 2017, is being developed under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
It will be the official hotel of Expo Centre Sharjah and will comprise 200 rooms that fall under three categories: standard rooms, club floor rooms and executive suites. "The club floor will feature enhanced amenities and a lounge area," said Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qassimi.
He added: "Development is a continuous and cumulative process. It starts with a vision followed by directives and finally implementation. We, in Sharjah, constantly strive, under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to improve our Emirate in a way that makes it keep pace with the times and represent a beacon of modernity and authenticity at the same time. It is this striving that spawned the idea to build Novotel Sharjah Expo."
The 4-star hotel will feature a business centre with workstations and a small meeting room, in addition to a large meeting-cum-function room of approximately 200m2.
Novotel Sharjah Expo, which will be strategically located close to Dubai and SCCI, as well as to vital leisure areas in Sharjah, will be accessible through two main roads.
The new hotel is the fruit of a strategic partnership between United Investment, Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Accor Hotel Services Middle East, who will manage and operate the facility.
