Thanks to Virgin Atlantic. I booked two nights at this hotel on their recommendation.
I arrived on a virgin flight at 8 am, but they staff were very accommodating. Not only did I get early entry to the hotel, I was upgraded.
The room was brilliant.. Massive by comparison to a London hotel.
I was visiting in Ramadan, so the bars were closed, but I had my fill of food and drink via room service.
The in house travel rep was also great and I was given some great deals on touristy things.
On check out, I informed the clerk that I was flying late in the evening and they allowed me some extra time to check out.
Great little roof top pool and gym as well.
All in all, a great stay!
