I've read several reviews on this site with people moaning about this hotel being "tired" and "old" but it seems these said people seem to be unaware that Le Meriden Abu Dhabi is the oldest hotel in the city!! We've stayed 3 times at the 5* Beach Rotana which is about 500m away, its brand new - the people moaning about Le Meridien being old (because it is!!!) should go and stay there!
Anyway enough of my rant, back to Le Meridien! Firstly Ibrahim on the front desk was BRILLIANT! We had a slight issue when we checked in due to my wife having her maiden name on the booking (it was too risky changing her passport in time so we left it) no problem, quickly sorted when we explained, no breaking the rules in the UAE!! Give the man a pay rise ASAP!
Also the Food & Beverage manager was great, we had a tiny issue with one of the restaurants (nothing major) and he sorted the issue without bother and even bought us a drink! I forget his name but say thank you to him again on my behalf!
Even our housekeeper was brilliant, always happy to help! I can't remember his name either, but i think he was from Thailand, he had REALLY spiky hair and was always smiling! We were in room 414 over the festive period, again say thankyou again to him (and give him a pay rise too!!) and also to the concierge staff for bringing me ice constantly for my injured arm!
We will be back!!
