Jumeirah Group rebranding

Jumeirah Group rebranded itself as just Jumeirah from 22 June 2005. Presumably it was a marketing department thing but not clear if it was deliberate or accidental that the new name might confuse residents and visitors to Dubai who want to visit the Jumeirah (or Jumeira) district. Anyway, now they can end up in a Jumeirah hotel instead, and if they don't know the difference between a suburb and a hotel, the gullible ones especially will believe Jumeirah Group when they say you have to pay to visit or stay in Jumeirah.
