I stopped in DXB for a night before heading to Abu Dhabi the next day. Once again my favorite Ritz-Carlton did not let me down. Upon arrival I was whisked up to the Club level to check in. You can't beat enjoying a glass of champagne while having your check in handled.
I booked through the AMEX Fine Hotels and Resorts program and was provided and upgrade to a suite, which was massive. I'm assuming it was a double upgrade since you usually get a junior suite on the upgrade. I only wished I had been staying longer to enjoy it.
Wi-fi was included with the room along with a USD 100 credit which I used on a nice snack from room service. They're still serving the Laurent-Perrier champagne in the club lounge which I love.
During Ramadan breakfast is now served downstairs. I was not impressed and greatly prefer eating in the lounge where the service level is much higher. The lounge now opens at 1 during Ramadan.
I departed before 1 so I had to use the non-club concierge to arrange transport to Abu Dhabi and he was very helpful.
