This hotel is excellent. Staff were extremely polite and helpful. We arrived on Christmas Day and had a wonderful Thai meal in the Silk and Spice restaurant in the hotel - we went for a set meal for 2 people and it was fantastic quality and the ambiance was first class. All very fresh ingredients and beautifully presented.
The room was amazing - wondefully clean with an amazing, powerful rain shower. All fittings were very new and shiny.
The bed was extremely comfortable.
We were on the 9th floor and didnt hear any traffic noise considering we were on one of the lower floors.
The hotel is next to a highway which you can cross using an underpass to get to the Corniche and Sheraton.
There is a lovely bar in the hotel with happy hour drinks.
We didnt use the pool as it was too cold. Had a look at it however and it looked great.
The gym was fantasic - very well equipped and there is a fridge with cold bottled water, cold flannels with apples on the side.
We didn't have the breakfast buffet but we did have room service which was fantastic. I had chicken and mushroom soup and pad thai and it was very fresh and tasty. Would definitely have it again.
The hotel runs a free shuttle bus service to Marina Mall, the Corniche Beach and Yas Island.
We didnt have breakfast at the hotel but there is a nice cafe around the corner called Milano which does an endless choice of breakfast and lunch options.
The hotel is a short walk away from PJ O'Reillys bar at the Meridien hotel which had a great live band playing when we went (sweet chilli jam).
all in all a great stay and we will be recommending this hotel to friends and family.
