We stopped over for a couple of nights here between the UK and Australia. We were two adults and two kids, and they upgraded us to suite, though I don't think a standard room would have fitted us all in anyway.
The hotel knew ahead of time that there would have been four of us, and we arrived in the evening, so it would have been nice to have had the room configured ready for us, rather than have to wait for housekeeping to bring an extra bed so the kids could sleep. Also, the room smelled *slightly* of smoke, but not enough to insist on a change of room. There's also a mosque nearby; I managed to sleep through the 5am call to prayer, but the missus didn't.
Aside from that, the rooms were all very modern, with a very comfortable bed, and were spotlessly clean. Service was very friendly, and the hotel is centrally located. For example, you could easily walk to the up-market WTC mall in 10 minutes (not that Abu Dhabi is great for walking around).
This is by no means an opulent hotel, but provides great value for money.
