Dubai surprises with first soccer-themed hotel for Qatar 2022
Global hotel chain NH announced in May 2021 its debut in the Middle East market. It aimed to do so with the construction of an exclusive hotel with a capacity of 533 rooms located on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, one of the main cities of the United Arab Emirates.
The NH Dubai The Palm hotel is planned to open in November 2022, just before the start of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. And that is why its presentation to the world could not be otherwise: it will be the first soccer-themed hotel in the region with a series of services designed for all those soccer fans who will be attending Qatar 2022.
