The Westin Dubai, St Regis Dubai and W Hotel are set to open in 2015 at the former site of the Metropolitan Hotel and its much-loved Red Lion pub, in a complex known as the Habtoor Palace. Lining Sheikh Zayed Road, the three hotels are months ahead of their original schedule, with St Regis opening the second quarter, the W in the third and Westin towards the end of the year, at which point the entire complex will be complete, including its entertainment centre. A 1,100-seat theatre, shopping centre, sports academy and restaurants will all form part of the development, which will be waterfront following the extension of the Creek.
