The world’s first Warner Bros. themed hotel is now open and it is located a stone’s throw away from the award-winning Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi Theme Park in Abu Dhabi!
The WB™ Abu Dhabi, part of Curio Collection by Hilton, has opened its doors to visitors. Located steps away from the award-winning Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi Theme Park, the 257-room hotel takes you on a journey through the world of Warner Bros.’ most iconic films and television series.
Featuring over 400 curated images and film and TV props, 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, you can listen as the piano from ‘Westworld’, the hit HBO science fiction TV show, 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. 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.
Guests of The WB Abu Dhabi hotel begin their story as they pull up to the hotel and are greeted by digital screens that span the height of the building, playing over 35 different pieces of original content created for the hotel. Before entering the hotel, visitors won’t want to miss the iconic ‘Friends’ fountain, or snaping a pic with the all-new Batmobile from the upcoming highly anticipated film, ‘The Batman’. Guests will then enter the lobby and be drawn to the hotel’s uniquely designed lobby columns. A spectacular Living Archive (spiral staircase) also resides in the lobby and will house an evolving collection of items dedicated to the vast depth and history of WB’s role in entertainment. It will showcase original films and a number of Warner Bros. props such as Cowboy boots from the 1956 film Giant, worn by James Dean, Michael Keaton’s cowl from 1989 film, Batman, original drawing from The Great Gatsby and so much more. As guests continue their journey, the storytelling experience is further enriched with guest room corridors displaying a curated gallery of artwork.
Furnishing with nods to Warner Bros. legacy of rich story telling make up each of the hotel’s 257 rooms. Three themes have inspired the guestroom artwork. The first theme, ‘From Script to Screen,’ highlights standout moments from Warner Bros.’ movies and shows and documents the journey from the written page to the final shot. The second theme, ‘Artist Confidential,’ celebrates a variety of talent in front of and behind the camera in some of Warner Bros.’ favourite productions. The third theme, ‘The Vault’ features rarely seen images from Warner Bros.’ most memorable archives.
