We stayed here during a 15 hour layover in Dubai and found it to be merely OK.
Check-in was quick and easy.
Friendly desk staff helped us with a local subway map and advice about what was open.
Multiple restaurants on the property (good since there is little you can get to in the area without braving the public transport system or shelling out for a longish taxi ride).
Attractive rooms and big bathrooms.
Shower did not work.
Bath tap spewed a noticeable amount of gritty dirt along with the water every time we used it (which is probably what clogged the shower).
At check-in the staff gave us a coupon for 2 free drinks at one of five named restaurants in the building (yay!) but when we went to use it 4/5 of them refused to take it, and the last one grudgingly gave us a dusty bottle of expired Mexican beer they had sitting around somewhere. Made us feel like bums for even pulling it out. I know, can hardly complain about a free beer... but it felt like false advertising for their in-house restaurants and was annoying.
The wake-up call system is automated. Gave a recorded confirmation that our wake-up call was scheduled. As we got back from dinner I checked with the front desk that it was in the system - and it wasn't! They said the system was broken. Thank goodness I checked or we may well have missed our morning flight.
Overall, we would have been perfectly happy with this place if it had cost under $200 US. At $350 I was expecting rather fewer downsides. Pay average prices for another another average hotel experience in the city, don't spend too much here.
