In March, my wife and I traveled with another couple to Abu Dhabi for the weekend (to see a performance of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at Emirates Palace across the street from the hotel). We booked a Deluxe Room online at the advance purchase rate of 800 AED ($217).
Upon arrival, we found the valet, bellman, and reception staff to be very polite, professional, and attentive. We were greeted with a cool towel and a welcome drink. We were excited when we were upgraded to a Grand Deluxe Room (which was 10 sq m. larger than the room we had booked). The room was stylish, modern, spacious, and comfortable. Fresh fruit and complimentary water, tea, and coffee were available in the room.
The bathroom was large and immaculate. Soaps, shampoos, lotions, and even sunscreen were all high-quality. The room had all of the latest technology, with remote control for the TV, lights, and curtains, and with wi-fi available throughout the hotel (at no additional charge).
The hotel pool area was nice, with a swim-up bar and a small beach. The pool staff was professional, friendly, and attentive.
The fitness center was modern and immaculate, with free weights, machine weights, cardio equipment, and a core exercise/stretching area.
There are several great things about this hotel - including the design and the friendly staff. If there was any area to critique, it was that the food service at the pool was slow (nearly 30 minutes to get a wrap), the waitstaff at (the expensive) breakfast forgot about us after our first 30 minutes in the restaurant (not stopping by to refill tea and coffee), and room service took over an hour to deliver our food (almost making us late to our performance). Overall, a very good hotel.
