DUBAI, UAE-Starwood Properties & Resorts Worldwide is planning a 220-room luxury hotel under the St. Regis brand to open here in 2012. The St. Regis Dubai will be part of the mixed-use Starhill Towers & Gallery, a 1.6-million-sf project in the city’s burgeoning Business Bay area.

Included in the hotel are three restaurants, two bars, a fitness center, a swimming pool, shops and 4,500 sf of meeting space. An 80-room portion of the hotel will be dubbed St. Regis Residences, featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations.

This is not Starwood’s first venture into Dubai. The company operates 15 hotels in the city under the Sheraton, Le Meridien and Westin names. It will open its first W-branded hotel here in 2010.
