We spent 5 nights at the Shangri-La in Abu Dhabi and we found the whole experience fantastic. We will return.
The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and polite and they all inquired if there was anyway that our stay could be improved. I cannot think of a single occasion when we did have a gripe or a concern.
One the potential issues was the dress code in Abu Dhabi as a whole but we found that the country had obviously become more accepting of their western visitors over time. Wearing shorts and flip flops was not an issue (within the hotel or outside) and the whole PDA piece is also blown out of proportion too (holding hands is completely acceptable, in fact there were locals doing this around the hotel).
