The tourism and hospitality sector in Dubai is gradually getting back on its feet after the coronavirus epidemic. Dubai Media Office reported in February, citing data from Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism, that the emirate had 7.28 million international overnight visitors from January through December of 2017.

However, in the fourth quarter of 2021, hotel performance in the emirate exceeded pre-pandemic levels across all metrics, with occupancy rates exceeding 81.4%, up from 80.7% in the same period in 2019. According to the Dubai Media Office, average occupancy increased to 67% in 2021 from 54% in 2020.

Ciel Tower will have more than a thousand rooms and suites, and its unique rooftop Sky Terrace will have an infinity pool and bar. On the 81st floor, guests will find the Ciel Observatory & Lounge.

The hotel's 300-meter atrium will be renowned for its 82 storeys of landscaped terraces piled vertically.

The Gevora Hotel, which opened in 2018, is six metres taller than the nearby JW Marriott Marquis Dubai (which is less than four miles away).

Uptown Tower, located between the southernmost tip of Jumeirah Lakes Towers and the Jumeirah Park neighbourhood, is the most recent addition to Dubai's ever-changing skyline.
