Ramada Downtown Dubai was the chosen web for the ‘French Spiderman’ otherwise known as expert climber Alain Robert and he even took time out to get to grips with the hotel’s facade.
Robert and his crew members stayed at the property during his recent trip to Dubai to climb the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
Afeef Naqvi, executive assistant manager of Ramada Downtown Dubai said: “We are extremely delighted that Mr. Alain Robert selected our Hotel during his stint in Dubai to climb Burj Khalifa. Our close proximity to the Burj Khalifa makes it a perfect location for him and I am confident that he had a memorable experience with us”.
It took Robert six hours to ascend the 828 meter towers and hundreds of residents including VIPs and dignitaries witnessed the climb. He has climbed more than 70 skyscrapers including Chicago’s Willis Tower and the PETRONAS Tower in Kuala Lumpur.
