Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Had been at Le royal meridien last week for 3 nights. The delightful and pleasant stay has made me write this. Being a regular traveller, can vouch that seldom will you find such courteous staff as in royal meridien. I was on a business trip and the fair amount of warning at checkin about the renovations that is on, has made me think am in for sleepless nights. But i should say, the renovations are well managed and it doesnt interfere in your comforts. Yes, a reduced lobby and no swimming pool can be a dampener for some. I had a corner suite with the view of corniche on one side and the city on the other. Splendid layout, cosy beds and good bath areas has put me on an excellent mood for the business meetings. And i should add , never miss the muffins from the buffet breakfast - they were a delight.

Room Tip: corner suites with both city and corniche view

Can't give 5 stars as a result of work going on that has put the swimming pool out of commission, reduced restaurant choice and means a cramped lobby. To be fair,these are mentioned on the website if you look carefully - but I'd be fairly unhappy if I had stayed for a holiday rather than business.

As it was, everything was fine for our meetings and the pre-pay Club rooms makes an excellent package with access to the Club lounge with complementary food and drink each evening. Staff as usual were excellent.

Room Tip: High rooms facing the sea have great views

Our valuable guests like yourself have contributed well through their valuable comments and suggestions to this reinvention process.
Our Lobby and three outlets will be launched in the first phase and the rest to follow towards the end of the year. The Pool will be one of the key features of our exclusive Ramadan tent, Layali El Hilmiya, being unveiled in July. We welcome you to enjoy traditional hospitality during the holy month with Layali El Hilmiya.
Thank you again for your continued patronage and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Stayed in the royal meridien twice during the last quarter, tried a jnr suite in the tower and a bigger suite in the extension royal tower. Overall very good experience, suites are spacious, elegantly furnished, room service was excellent. Nice buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Was there for business and had chosen the hotel for its location, and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Go for high floor sea views.

Taxi drivers told me this was the first five star hotel of Abu Dhabi. Very impressive facade and an equally impressive lobby. Check-in is always a struggle though, and I always find new staff doing checkins. Very comfortable rooms and splendid bath areas especially in their SPG Club Towers. There are numerous eating options - I love their all day dining. Weekends is a crowded place here. There is a belly dancer every night at their Arabian restaurant. What I love most about the property is their breakfast-unmatchable at Abu Dhabi. Sushi to Kimchi to Fried Rice To DimSum to a full American Breakfast that you can have indoors or outdoors! Very friendly concierge team - I would strongly recommend this hotel! The lobby was due to undergo massive renovation from July & also a lot of rooms-so please check with the Hotel before booking!

Room Tip: SPG Club Tower rooms are something to clamour for!

I stayed a week in this very pleasant hotel for a business. The location is good at the center of Abu Dhabi city. Very near to corniche (beach). Nice swimming pool with good service.

Staff are kind attentive to guest requirements and takes utter care of your requirements.
My check in was handled quickly and professionally.

The room was excellent. Well furnished. The Bed comfort is amazing. Nice beds and pillows. Room interiors are pleasant.

I had a little problem that worth no mention, but on my information of the problem,they changed my rooms to another nice one. The staff at reception are kind and attentive.

Breakfast is great with variety to choose.

The Illusion bar and club is excellent with good audio system and nice atmosphere. (If you don't mind a bit smoke). The place is very good to unwind yourself after a hectic day.

Large scale renovation work is going on. But I did not find any difficulty out of it.

In short, it was one of the best experience I had.

I find most of the door men with very stiff faces. Not even greeting. I was surprised with these are the people whom the guests meet first. Hope the management will look into this.


Overall, This is a great place to stay. Sure I will return to this hotel shortly.

Thanks Royal Meridien,

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Cornische (CORNISH). These rooms are bigger and has the view of the Abu Dhabi...

I stayed at LE ROYAL MÉRIDIEN ABU DHABI for a conference in May. Service there was excellent, the room well laid out, spacious and well fitted. The view over the corniche is great!

The only drawback was the renovation works on the upper floors but with the work only between 10.00 am - 6.00 pm, the annoyance was minimal.

The last time I stayed at the hotel it was a Rotana hotel, much work has been done since then to bring this (now Meridien) up to a high standard. I'll be back.

Room Tip: All rooms look over the corniche area. Views are great.

The Le Royal Meridien, Khalifa Street, Abu Dhabi 45505, UAE, is my first of choice whenever i want to have a time out for myself its really an excellent choice for all categories: families, singles, business men, everyone, its well equipped with very efficient man power and facilities that make you never require or think of anything better, other hotels in UAE should take this hotel as a standard and example to reach this position and remember this is a place where luxury, leisure, comfort, family time all meet together in the Le Royal Meridien, keep it up guys!!!!

Rediscover Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, as the city's long-standing landmark re-emerges, transformed.

Recently renovated, the hotel's redesign is inspired by both its European roots and its local heritage. Curated art in the hotel inspires a new perspective and discovery continues at check-in with Unlock Art, where guests receive a limited-edition room key designed exclusively by an LM100 artist, which also allows guests to receive exclusive benefits at a local cultural institution. The 202 spacious guest rooms and 74 lavish suites reveal the city's skyline and coast with panoramic views and feature contemporary, chic design and Le Meridien signature beds. The hotel's transformation also made it the culinary destination in the city, providing a fresh palate of tastes, including the first Jean-Georges Restaurant- Market Kitchen, the city's only revolving lounge bar and grill - Stratos- with 360 degree views of Abu Dhabi, coffee culture brought to life with Illy and the only authentic Irish pub - PJ O Reilly's- in the city. The hotel boasts 10 restaurants and bars offering best in class culinary exploration. With 8 meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 1,300 attendees, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi's conference facilities provide ample room to encourage creative interaction and forward thinking. ... more   less
