Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Have stayed here several times over the years through all its different guises (Forte, Grand). It is good to see the hotel moving with the times and reinventing itself to stay competitive. Rooms are clean and well maintained and plenty of options for eating out within the hotel. Staff always very friendly.

I've been a regular guest in this hotel. I normally book the suites in the club wing. The staff try to be helpful but they don't give any special preference or bonus points for SPG gold. Sometimes they can try and give you a first floor suite, this is horrible as the sound of the traffic on the roads come through. Always take at least level 4 and up to avoid this nuisance. The room service menu is brilliant. They have an excellent location and good restaurants too. The managers are good and resolve issues but some of the front desk staff can be a pain.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

I stayed at Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi 3 times in 2014. The hotel was fully booked 2 times and they upgraded me to royal suites without hesitations. As for the third time, I was upgraded to the "platinum stay". The renovated rooms are pretty chic and naturally comfy. Service in general is pretty good and consistent. Keep up the good work and the upgrades :)

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your positive remarks and we are glad that we could keep up with your expectations during your recent stay. The recently concluded renovation project saw the launch of brand new food and beverage venues including Market kitchen which offers modern American cuisine influenced by local flavours, Amalfi offering contemporary Italian cuisine, Stratos- the City's only revolving launch bar and grill etc to name a few among 10 dining destinations.
We are delighted to see that you recommend Market Kitchen and will definitely pass on this as a compliment to the team.
Look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Located across the road from the corniche, stands out due to the exterior and design. Upon arrival was upgraded to the "platinum stay", upgraded to a VIP suite. Included in the package is free breakfast, and snacks and drinks at the exclusive bar for Suite guests. This is intended to let guests sample the suites, for future stays. The suite delivered to the expectations you automatically expect upon arrival from the welcome and customer service. Large spacious lounge, leading to the bedroom. Spacious bathroom with an unique bath shower. However the vintage style shower with a modern twist looks amazing, to actually have a shower at the temperature you wish is somewhat of a challenge. The taps are fiddly and don't work as you would expect. However regardless a unique feature, and gives great character. In room dining was a slight disappointment, the food was presented eloquently, however the taste was a bit bland and not very appetizing.

All in all an excellent hotel, but just does not have it all to deliver a 5* experience. however would happily stay here again, due to great location and excellent customer service.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room, great views over the corniche or the city

Good quality hotel... Booking reservations drop to reception in at least 15 mins. Keep in mind that they are offering two complimentary coffees in Latitude with the submission of a room complimentary card rthat is in your room. The rooms with numbers ending with 01 (2301,1601 etc) are corner rooms and their design is bad. I guess other rooms perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rediscover Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, as the city's long-standing landmark re-emerges, transformed. Conceived over 2 decades ago by the ruling Royal family of Abu Dhabi, the hotel retains its distinctive avant garde exterior, that resembles an eye when seen from above. Strategically located in the heart of the city's commercial district, the hotel is within a 20 minute drive to all areas of Abu Dhabi and just a walk away from major corporations, shopping, parks and the Corniche. Curious minds are awakened by the Arrival Artwork as guests enter and discover the Hub, Le Meridien's re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby, where they are immediately transported into a stimulating space. 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
