Having been to many hotels throughout the UAE, this would probably rank as the worst, simply because the rooms are extremely small in comparison to the basic rooms one could expect to find elsewhere. My second night I asked to change rooms as I had been given a twin only to be told that the hotel was fully booked the whole week, and it was not possible. Upon meeting my colleague for breakfast the next morning they informed me that they had changed theirs...this was after I had made my request! Having then gone to reception to ask again, I was told that this was not a problem, and was changed immediately. A lack of understanding by the hotel reception staff was probably the issue here, but please, learn your internal systems.
The main plus points was that the hotel is situated right next door to the exhibition centre (ADNEC), which is great when finishing a long day and then not having to cue for a taxi to go elsewhere. The rooms are clean and modern, which one would expect from a new hotel, but they are small, please be warned. The bathroom is adequate, and has a nice shower and wash basin, but can feel a little claustrophobic at times. Their is not much to do in the surrounding area, couples on a holiday, or with young children could more than likely find a more suitable hotel elsewhere, and the Rotana chain has plenty in its portfolio.
I would recommend this hotel for business travelers if you are looking for somewhere close to ADNEC.
