The hotel is ideally located near the Emirates Palace, restaurants, shopping, etc. Unfortunately, construction in the immediate area is bothersome and loud noises could be heard from the rooms. You could hear the noise starting with the arrival of busloads of laborers at 4:00AM. Otherwise the rooms are adequate, no frills, but comfortable beds. Roos service is efficient, but food quality is poor. Got room service 4/5 times, each time there was something missing with the order. When food arrived cold on my fifth attempt to get a descent meal, I stopped trying and figured it was best to take a taxi to a restaurant outside the hotel. Hotel staff is somewhat cold and were not forthcoming with information at times. When I asked for rates for extended stay at one of their suites, I got several answers. At first, there was only "one suite available." When I decided that I did not like it and will look elsewhere, all os a sudden two more suites became available. My guess is that they were trying to push a certain, less popular, room but relented when I was going to walk away, which I did anyway as I did not appreciate the little game they thought they were good at. As a corporate costumer with Rotana, I am disappointed and will not stay here again, nor recommend to any of our company employees. Regarding the construction, in my best estimate, the area will not be ready for at least another year. Meanwhile, I would highly recommend staying away from this property while they work out all the bugs and construction projects are completed in the immediate area.
