We stayed here for one night in transit through Abu Dhabi and it served it's purpose well. It's a lovely hotel and great lobby area. The buffet in the restaurant was also amazing. The room was also very well decorated and we had great views of the mosque. It's also close to the airport and only a few minute taxi to the mosque. It is quite a ways away from other sites like the Grand Palace.
The two downsides which prevented me from giving it five stars is check in process seemed to be a bit frantic and took a long time - for them to just tell us our room was not ready. Also, while it has great views of the mosque, it's really just on a river/canal and besides the mosque, is really not an appealing view.
