Stayed for three nights on the eight floor. Very efficient and pleasant check in crew. Free wifi in lobby area - not in the room which is a definite draw back. Good breakfast selection. Rooms are a bit worn bed comfortable with plenty of fluffy pillows. Pool is indeed very nice, however pool hours are sun break to sunset which means that if you work its hard to find time for an afterwork experience. Nice view from the top floor restaurant (revolving will give you a nice over view of the city).
I lost a ring (18 ct gold with precious stones) that I placed in a little box with costume jewellery on the desk in the room (the only item missing from the box) - of course it should have been put in the safety box and of course it might have fallen on the floor and have disappeared into the vacuum cleaner .. So that I cannot do much about - BUT I find it very interesting that the hotel has chosen not to respond at all to my email inquiring if anyone of the cleaning staff might have seen or taken care of it ...
I have posted an ordinary surface mail letter too (with a printout of the email) and look forward to see if perhaps that might provoke a response.
So no - I will not stay here again ...

- 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.
