Miral in collaboration with Warner Bros announced on Monday that The WB Abu Dhabi Hotel on Yas Island, operated by Hilton under the Curio Collection brand, will open its doors to guests on Nov.11, 2021.
Featuring one of the finest collections of Warner Bros. archives, guests at the world’s first Warner Bros. hotel will be treated to a journey of discovery through film and television, enjoying Warner Bros’ rich history and library of timeless productions at every touchpoint from arrival to check-out. While dining in one of five restaurants on the property, guests can listen as the piano from "Westworld" plays a familiar tune.
Visitors can stroll through the lobby or admire 360-degree city and sea views alongside their favourite props and costumes from Warner Bros. films and TV shows. And kids and families can ring up one of their favourite Looney Tunes characters for a room service treat brought to them by the Wascally Wabbit, Bugs Bunny himself.
