Location in JBR is ideal if you need to be based in this part of Dubai, otherwise going anywhere else is going to be a bit of a hassle. Smacked right in the middle of JBR, with the traffic of getting into and out of JBR a consistent nightmare. Walking to the nearest Metro station is doable if you are able to withstand the heat.
Eateries all around the vicinity of the hotel. Plenty of grocery shopping choices within JBR.
Went for a massage at the spa. Average at best, though the booking via email and the service from reception was spotless.
Rooms are a little on the traditional looking side. Seashells (?!?!) placed on the bed during housekeeping. Excellent balcony with sufficient shade.
King-beds are huge, though they use 'normal-sized' pillows, which makes it look a little strange. Comfortable nonetheless.
Staff - excellent.
I'm HHonors Gold and did not get upgraded due to "high room occupancy" (though a check on the website reveals that they still have rooms on executive floor open for booking). Was acceded breakfast and internet benefits nonetheless.
All in all a good stay of 4 nights, though if I needn't be in JBR I would look for a hotel along SZ road nearer Dubai Mall.More
