Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi will rebrand to Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, turning the iconic ‘Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi’ into the first Andaz branded hotel in the Middle East.
Centrally located in the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, the property is near numerous noteworthy cultural, creative and entertainment offerings including Zayed Sports City and The Louvre, with the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Mangrove National Park just a short drive away. The hotel features a permanent art collection and various examples of unique craftsmanship such as “Khatt” calligraphy art and local, traditional “Sadu” weaving.
Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi offers 189 luxury guestrooms and suites, occupying the 18th to 33rd floors of the iconic Capital Gate building, marking the world’s furthest leaning hotel at an impressive 18 degree incline. Each room offers panoramic views from floor-to-ceiling windows, its own unique art, and locally designed comforts such as the hotel’s bespoke Andaz Loungewear. The hotel is adjacent to Abu Dhabi’s National Exhibition Center (which also has an Aloft Hotel, in the picture right) and offers a variety of restaurants and bars, an art gallery, a spa, as well as a rooftop swimming pool and fitness center.
