The rooms were large and well appointed, with quiet air-conditioning, which was a must considering it was 47C outside. A little too many floors for my liking, being put on the 24th floor was a pain. The breakfast was superb, catering for many cultures and the nightly theme banquets were well priced and truly gourmet. We tasted some really wonderful Arabian flavours! I did find that cultural differences impacted on my evening 'glass' with dinner (because you can't drink) but I knew that before I went.The pool was the best aspect of the hotel, with a view over the sea and parts of the city. It was like looking at a postcard. The beach was across the road and there were many shops and eateries clustered around the hotel.However at the moment the whole area is under construction for the 2020 expo, so its not pleasant.
Let me warn you! Do not go in July when the heat is 37C over night and 40+ every day plus, during July it is disrespectful to eat or drink between 7am-7pm. All of the eateries everywhere are closed, so shopping all day becomes a drag when you can't sit down anywhere. I chose to go to Dubai and of course chose to be respectful by not eating or drinking and by covering up, despite the heat in long sleeves, long pants and shoes-all black. I was surprised however, to be constantly seated in the hotel restaurant in the furthest corner and we weren't sure why. We were very quiet and polite and never asked for anything.
