Cristal Salam Hotel to be showcased at Arabian Travel Market ahead of July 2011 opening

Cristal Hotels and Resorts, the most dynamic hotel brand in the region, has revealed that its participation at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai from May 2-5, 2011 will be headlined by a showcase of its Cristal Salam hotel that is set to open in Abu Dhabi this July. The centrally-located hotel is currently in the final stages of completion, and will be open for site inspection from June.
 
Cristal Salam hotel offers 112 luxurious rooms and suites and is equipped with a premium range of business and leisure amenities such as free underground parking and free internet, four meeting rooms with city views, the Figure 8 Health Club, sauna/steam rooms, an outdoor pool and the exclusive Cristal Spa. The hotel also has a fine selection of food and beverage outlets with the “2.35” all-day dining and the “Blendz” lobby café.

“The Arabian Travel Market will be another opportunity for us to showcase the distinctiveness and range of our hospitality offerings. Our focus at this edition of the event will be on Cristal Salam hotel, which has been highly anticipated, especially given the reputation enjoyed by our other hotel in the UAE - Cristal Hotel Abu Dhabi,” said Peter Blackburn, CEO, Cristal Hotels and Resorts.

Blackburn also pointed out that Cristal Hotel Abu Dhabi reported excellent performance in 2010, with an average occupancy rate of 85 per cent. He revealed that the hotel reaffirmed its position as one of the most popular business hotels in Abu Dhabi as business visitors made up 60 per cent of the hotel’s total guests last year.       
  
The 192-room Cristal Hotel Abu Dhabi recently teamed up with environmental consultant 7th Sense to complete an energy modeling study aimed at establishing energy benchmarks for 4-star hotels. The hotel performed well against the consumption standards used in the study, thus maintaining its status as one of the emirate’s most environmentally-responsible hospitality organisations.
