We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Ferrari World, which we intended to visit just before Christmas.
We actually ended up at the Radisson Blu through an upgrade from the nearby Park Inn, and I must say that this probably increased the value for money considerably.
On the other hand, we had just checked out of the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel, and this goes to prove that close comparisons make it more difficult to have an unbiased perspective. Of course, as we were paying comparatively less in this case, it is very good that we found the bathroom to be overall better than the one in our previous hotel. Both the spaciousness and the furnishings and fittings in the bathroom were more to our liking.
We had to alert maintenance because the desk lamp was not working, and the member of staff from engineering was at our door almost before I put the phone down.
On the other hand, we didn't find the breakfast buffet to be on the same level. Especially the fact that scrambled eggs were provided from a buffet tray, instead of being fried freshly at an "egg station", was a little disappointment, considering that this culinary solution is often adopted by hotels in lower categories, too.
Having said that, our was a good experience altogether with no negative points.
