Reviewed 18 May 2014

There is no fault to this hotel, great views, great service, if at all the only thing I can complain about is that the beds are a little small. But having such a wonderful room more than makes up for this shortcomming.

Room Tip: High floor with a city/ocean view is best

This was my first time in the gulf so my comparisons are based on other similar 5 star hotels in say London, NYC etc. I was actually attending the conference that reviewer E14PUG reported disrupted his stay! It worked well as a conference venue, but I could see that a holiday stay could be good here too. The hotel is architecturally impressive, and has everything you could need. Restaurants looked very good, a number of pools. small beach with access to the sea. Impressive electronics in the room - remote control for different types of curtains/blinds/lights/tv/audio. Interesting room layout which follows the curve of the building. Very comfy beds. Excellent breakfast - international standards with local food too - I tried the Emirati breakfast and was pleasantly surprised - the saffron infused milk was delicious. I was talked into trying it by a very enthusiastic staff member - hats off to anyone working a breakfast shift who is enthusiastic.

Very internationally and professionally staffed, though not really enough staff on the front desk - hotel of that caliber shouldn't really have a queue at check in as it did when we arrived, but maybe the conference was to blame, with 1000 people arriving the same night.

Rays bar on the 62nd floor was a reasonable hang out - great DJ on one of the nights we were there.

Hotel connects to a slightly bizarre shopping arcade of top brands, which appeared completely absent of customers, though well staffed. I would recommend an outside table for dinner at Scott's seafood restaurant in the hotel if you get the chance. Bookings advisable.

I've given this 4/5 only because it's just too perfect in a kind of 5 star formulaic way. You could be anywhere. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this place but if I was choosing somewhere to stay I'd rather it had more local feel to it, not just an identikit international hotel model.

Another thing to note is the rapid development taking place in Abu Dhabi. I noted that while there were folks on the beach, the neighboring tower blocks are still being built, so the sounds of construction sometimes overwhelmed the lapping of the water on the shore. That's more a reflection of the city than the hotel, but worth being aware of.

Room Tip: As high as possible. Lots of people complimentary about Club rooms. I didn't pay the extra and...

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write this review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed staying here during your conference and that you can see yourself enjoying a holiday here as well. We are thrilled to know that so many aspects of the hotel impressed you, from the comfort of your rooms to the enthusiastic breakfast service and the music at Ray’s Bar. Regarding the queue at check-in, we sincerely apologize for the delay, this is not our usual standard and measures have been taken to avoid this in the future. Regarding the hotel missing a local feel, we have taken note of your comment. We would like to clarify though that we attempt to achieve this through different channels including food - such as the Emirati breakfast basket, art – like the pictures from old Abu Dhabi in our rooms and traditions such as the bakhoor rituals that we carry out in the Lobby daily with our special Arabic incense. We truly appreciate your constructive review and the very detailed feedback. We would love to greet you as a guest again and hope to welcome you back here soon.

Best Regards

Stayed here four nights. Definitely get Club access. Great facilities and amazing electronics in room for lighting and even black out.
You can walk to Marina Mall and Palace Hotel(worth a visit).
Staff a bit efficient but over all great stay.

Staycation mid week- wow. The lobby is a masterpiece on its own- vast with floor to ceiling windows and amazing view across the water. Our room was right next to the lifts - but you the room itsel was soundproof. On the 50th floor we had great views over Abu Dhabi and the choice of dining was excellent. Recommend Rays bar.
Breakfast catered to most palettes and the staff at checkin, around the hotel and in the restaurants themselves were knowledgable and helpful.
Etihad towers is a fantastic mix of a city hotel that works for both business and holiday and would definitely go back.

This hotel has it all.

Great architecture and design (outside and inside) in one of the tallest Adu Dhabi skyscrapers. A private beach. Nice restaurants. Outstanding service and a feel good factor.

You can make this your base to discover Abu Dhabi. Highlights: The beach is good and very relaxing. The breakfast is amazingly good specially if you take an outside table over the beach.

If you do not feel like going to the restaurants for a change there is a gourmet supermarket in the low level shopping mole (avenue at Etihad) with high quality.

The concierge services are very professional and you do not feel any hard selling, just the aim to help you have the information you need to decide.

Either for business or pleasure, alone or with family (I travelled with kids) do not miss it! This is how life should be lived.

Room Tip: The higher, the better!

We arrived on a Saturday during the world climate conference being held at hotel. We had booked a king deluxe we were given a twin deluxe. We tried calling reception porter said don't bother they won't answer. We were told although we booked a king we couldn't specify as allocations were made 24hrs before and all kings had been allocated. The hotel was full because of conference so they would move us on Sunday. Turndown service that night was 1 bed only. Sunday nobody contacted us about moving. At 3 we went to reception and was told pack up be ready for 4. 4 came and went at 5 we called down and was told porter was on their way up. 5:45 still no porter so went to reception nobody aware of move. Manager apologised we moved ourselves to a king grand (one up from deluxe) computers were down so couldn't have a key. Received wine, fruit and chocolates for the inconvenience. No turn down that night. Rest of the week there was turn down but hit and miss whether both sides or one side of the bed. Facilities were amazing, restaurants lovely. Ray's bar and lobby bar very smoky which wasn't great for a non smoker. Food lovely. Pool bar staff and pool and life guard staff very nice and very friendly. Only 1 restaurant and the pool bar where men can wear shorts. Building site directly next door but unless downtown hard pushed to find a hotel without a building site next door. Glad won't be there later in May through to July as children's pool being renovated so lots more drilling and building noise will be going on. Despite cock up with room, building site noises and inconsistent service from reception/house keeping do think it was the best place to stay in Abu Dhabi. Do think they should review what they do during a conference as reception/house keeping staff obviously had trouble coping during that period which isn't great for guests. Would be reluctant to visit during a conference again for this reason.

We went to Abu Dhabi for a quick getaway. The hotel was lovely, and the staff very friendly. The only issue I had was that the gentleman at the front desk was not paying attention or listening to me, when I tried to tell him that we were booked on the executive floors (different check-in location), so we wasted some time on that. The executive lounge was perfect, the views outstanding, the beach good, all what we were looking for. Our friends wanted to shop, and they were thrilled to find the Marina Mall just five minutes away by taxi. All in all a great spot for a bit of rest and pampering.

Room Tip: Choose the executive floors, the rooms are lovely, the views great, and the club lounge wonderful.
