I stay here 3-4 times a year for the past 5 years and this remains my firm favourite in Dubai not as flash as other 5 star hotels in Dubai but it's an absolute classic.
Rooms - large, comfortable, well maintained and great beds. Bathrooms a good size with nice amenities.
location - great for hitting either Jumeirah or downtown easily. And of all the hotels I've stayed in Dubai the best for getting a taxi quickly with its position at the start of one of the service roads on SZR.
Restaurants - Good quality and the exchange bar and grill a personal favourite for meetings, coffee chairs and a lot of room between tables.
bars - mostly good, but as all hotels in Dubai now some of the bars on certain nights can be busy with lots of girls.
Service - not overly fussy but quietly efficient and polite, suits the hotel well. Problems at check in / out can either be dealt with quickly and without fuss, or painfully slowly by robots who can't handle a problem that doesn't fit their standard script - nothing in the middle!
Overall a great place to stay on business or a couple at a push, but wouldn't take the familyMore
