If you’re in Dubai and looking for the best in motor sports action there is no need to trek all the way to Abu Dhabi.
The Dubai Autodrome, located conveniently at the buzzing mini metropolis that is Motor City, has a busy programme over the next month including FIA F4UAE Championship (March 2-3), Emirates Schools Karting Championship (March 11-12) and the National Race Days Power Weekend (March 30-31). (See more events below.)
And the perfect place to catch all the Autodrome action is from the brand new Park Inn by Radisson Dubai Motor City.
With stunning views of the Race Track, and the Dubai Marina skyline as a backdrop, the Park Inn has been impressively designed with a motor racing theme.
The minute you enter the tastefully decorated modern foyer a panorama of the race track opens up in front of you through the huge floor to ceiling windows.
Then look up – and above you suspended from the ceiling – a bright red antique Ferrari, which took hundreds of hour to assemble and fix in place.
Take a stroll around and you will soon discover Dubai’s sense of adventure and fun is perfectly mirrored in the design and philosophy of the Park Inn, which also aims for excellence in service and comfort.
The 146 rooms and suites, all with upscale amenities including free high-speed wifi, are bright and roomy with a vibrant contemporary feel.
With the curtains open revealing the wall to wall windows it’s almost like you are sitting in the grandstand of the race track – the final bend before the finish line right in front of you.
There’s no need to even leave your room, though you definitely will want to check out the buoyant and up tempo Live Inn on the first floor which features an all-day dining restaurant with an array of mouth-watering dishes, designed by the innovative executive chef at the Park Inn, Khaldoun Nasr.
Savor everything from South-East Asian to Middle Eastern food, for example ginger soy salmon or pearl barley tabbouleh, while meat enthusiasts will be keen to try the juicy rack of lamb with green pea and mint mash.
Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the dessert specialty, berry cheesecake with chocolate icing.
The food is excellent, stylishly presented and the service first class.
The Live-Inn is the perfect place to grab a delicious and healthy breakfast before heading to the race track or pausing during the day to take a break in a relaxing ambiance.
The Park Inn also features a heated pool and juicebar on the roof, with great views of the track and the city skyline plus a state-of-the-art-fitness centre and soon a new spa.
Also opening soon is the Bar Le Petit Belge, unwind and mingle at this beautiful bar with Belgian beverages and snacks. Gather around a football match on TV or sink into our couches and take in the superb racetrack view.
Park Inn also offers a “Happiness Guarantee” – if you’re not 100% happy with something, let one of their enthusiastic staff know during your stay and they’ll make it right or you won’t pay.
So for a weekend racing stay-cation or the perfect beginning, middle or end to your autodrome visit make sure to check out the Park Inn by Radisson.
