Pros: apartment-like set up w/ nice furnishings, free wi-fi, housecleaning does dishes, washer/dryer combo in suite, two bathrooms in one-bedroom suite, good cable package, reasonable room service charges, non-overchlorinated pool (rarity in Middle East), free parking.
Cons: 1/3 of Mariott points (i.e., only one day's credit for 3 paid days - despite $275/night cost), over-zealous security (wand/bag check EVERY time you walk in), vehicle trunk check each time you drive in, tiny - actually miniscule parking spaces, pool level is windy, very windy & loud (huge air handlers that you can actually hear underwater), elevators are SLOW and glitchy (i.e., you have to put your card in a certain way (i.e., put card in slot for 1.5 seconds, not 1 or 2 seconds, then remove) for the floor button to register your choice), spoons are too big (yes you read that right - seriously, almost pot-stirring size), washer/dryer combo is glitchy and LOUD, very slow wi-fi that kept necessitating cumbersome reset.
Overall, I would go with the Residence Inn one block away for just slightly more.
