Dubai- beach hotel or city hotel?

After some guidance please - is it worth paying extra to stay at a beach side hotel, or should we save money and stay in a city hotel and use the metro to travel around?

We plan on being out and about most days - shopping, Ferrari world, burj al Arab, burj khalifa, souks, waterpark, etc so not too worried about location as long as its within easy reach of metro or other public transport.

Any tips on location or ideal hotels would be appreciated

I personally prefer the beach but do tend to chill out for most of the day. If you're planning to sightsee then you may be better of looking for somewhere that's more cost effective and use the metro and taxis to get around. There's plenty of choice.
