Golden elevators carry guests in glittering
comfort at Emirates Palace
(Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates)
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven monarchies at the end of the Arabian Peninsula. In the harsh desert environment, the people of this region once pursued a modest existence as nomadic herdsmen, farmers and fishermen, but the discovery of rich oil reserves in the 1950s and the country's economic transformation attracted attention from around the world.
In 2005, Abu Dhabi, the political and economic heart of the country, became a hot topic with the opening of the five-star Emirates Palace Hotel. True to its name, the accommodations are fit for a king, and the hotel serves as the official guest house for visiting dignitaries and leaders from abroad. Mitsubishi Electric was selected as the supplier of 87 elevators installed at the Emirates Palace Hotel. Each is built with quality befitting 5-star standards and backed by the Company's impressive record of elevator installations at prestigious properties around the world. The golden mirror-finish and exquisite arabesque detail of the elevator doors and interior perfectly complement the luxurious hotel ambience. Behind the scenes, two engineers provide fulltime 24/7 maintenance support to keep every elevator running smoothly.
Today, Mitsubishi Electric elevators add the unique dimension of quality in motion to palatial hospitality and bring dazzling smiles to the faces of guests.
