I recently stayed in this hotel while accompanying my husband on a conference. The conference organizers picked the hotel as it has great conference facilities, and good bars and restaurants in the hotel. I was there as a leisure traveller and can attest the hotel is great for that too! The staff here are wonderful - the housekeeping, front desk, room service and restaurant staff are all friendly, professional and eager to help. I spent a few afternoons at the pool (note that the pool, although lovely does not get sun until after 3pm which is a bit of a drag if you are a serious sun worshipper) and was very well looked after by Avinash - one of the waiters who worked at the pool bar. He was friendly, professional and made sure I had everything I needed pool side. Munas (I might be spelling that wrong- one of the pool/ towel attendants was also absolutely fantastic).
We stayed in room 1909 - great bed, nice sheets, great room overall. The bathroom had all the bells and whistles (big tub, rainforest shower, and the layout was great for couples :-) ). The room had a pretty nice view of the harbor but was a bit noisy as you could here the very loud music from outside the hotel- I don't think the hotel could avoid that, and the noise did not go late.
Overall my husband and I will certainly return for business and pleasure - the staff are wonderful, the facilities very high end (I forgot to mention but the gym and spa facilities are wonderful and very quiet) and the hotel is located very close to the center of Abu Dhabi.
