DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- For travelers heading to Dubai this summer, three just might be their magic number. Not for genies in bottles, per se, but for stays at two premier properties: the Courtyard by Marriott Dubai Green Community and the Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Creek. These dual destinations are offering three nights for the price of two, along with 33-percent discounts on nearly everything from meals to massages. And that means smart travelers don't need magic to get great deals; they just need the right promotion.
Whether guests are looking for the modern tranquility of this Jebal Ali hotel in Dubai, or the extended-stay benefits of the Dubai Creek apartments, the discounts put a Dubai dream vacation within reach. Enjoying three nights' accommodation for the price of two means guests can spend more time enjoying the Courtyard Dubai's luxury bedding (replete with custom comforters and thick mattresses), fitness center and outdoor pool, as well as its location next to the eponymous parkland and serene lake.
Or they can steep themselves in the comfort of the Dubai Creek apartments' sleekly renovated rooms with flat-screen televisions, extensive services (including grocery shopping and dry cleaning) and fully equipped kitchens. And for anyone planning a destination event this summer, the properties offer an exciting range of Dubai event rooms, thanks to the Courtyard's more than 11,000 square feet of elegant function space.
Both properties' locations take full advantage of the fact there are many things to do in Dubai. Shopping and historical sites surround the Dubai Creek property, while guests can readily explore golfing, zoos, museums and even a Dolphinarium from the Courtyard by Marriott Dubai Green Community. But the discounts offered on meals and spa treatments may encourage visitors to stay closer to home. Guests of the Dubai Creek apartments, for example, will receive a 33-percent discount off of treatments at the nearby JW Marriott Hotel Dubai's Griffins Health Club & Luxury Spa.
Of course, the combined restaurant list among Marriott properties in Dubai is outstanding enough to attract even the locals. And with a 33-percent discount on food and beverages at a range of these restaurants -- not to mention the fact that kids under 12 dine for free -- there's no reason to leave the property to dine well. Guests can savor the flavors of Italy at Cucina Italian Kitchen, for example, or cozy up with room service while staying at the Courtyard. And guests of the Dubai Creek apartments can embrace the flavors of Europe while exploring the JW Marriott Hotel Dubai's participating Hofbrauhaus and Cucina restaurants.
Whichever property travelers choose, they do need to move quickly. The promotion is only valid for stays between June 1 and September 6, 2014 -- and there's no genie that can recapture the chance once it's passed. Guests must use the promotional code SUM when booking to secure the package. For more information, visit http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/dubai.hotels.united-arab-emirates.travel/.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
