I know this Palace very well having the office at the ground floor. It is a place to visit during your Abu Dhabi call. Beautiful architectural building, amazing garden and many other things to see. Very good Lebanese restaurant as well.

Visiting Emirates Palace hotel is free. If there is no function government event there, they will let you in. But if you want ot sit and enjoy the ambiance, you can go to one of the many cafes and restaurants.
