Each room contains a large bathroom with a wet zone and splash area, and all have stunning views of either the Dubai Creek, city skyline or the world-class mall, and the Festival Centre. Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City offers 316 superior upscale guest rooms including 16 suites over 19 floors, most with panoramic views over Dubai Creek. the hotel includes a fully-equipped gym with sauna and steam rooms, and its own leisure deck featuring a 25 metre, temperature controlled, outdoor pool with two spa pools with views of the city skyline. the two properties share a 3800 square metre (40,660 square feet) event centre across two levels. two large ballrooms which can hold up to 1350 guests each have been designed with customer needs in mind.

Each ballroom also has a creek facing pre-function area, the only waterfront events space in Dubai. Eight break-out meeting rooms are also on hand for meetings or functions, and with direct access to either InterContinental or Crowne Plaza the centre is a perfect location for business events for local or overseas corporate functions.
