I stayed here for three days on my way back from Sydney. The building is very modern and striking and definitely one of the reasons that I chose to stay.
I found the ambiance a little boring though and there was a lot of space with very little happening in it.
The hotel is attached to the Abu Dhabi conference centre so it clearly caters for the business market and it a little out of the way from the main activities of Abu Dhabi. But it's a very short taxi journey to most. I asked for details of a restaurant for lunch and concierge assured me that he would explain to the taxi driver where to go. Unfortunately he didn't and I ended up having to tell him just to take me to the nearest hotel when we began driving aimlessly up and down the corniche.
The service was friendly but nothing special and the pool area on the 19th floor was very relaxing although during the day the sun reflects off the glass building and onto the pool making it uncomfortably hot to relax in.
I stayed in a Capital Suite and it was a very good size with near 90 degree views.
