I would not stay at any other hotel...
This was my first visit to Dubai and this hotel exceeded expectations in all respects. Near the airport, walking distance from the metro or walk out and you've got a taxi. Has a direct entry from the lobby into the Wafi mall. The lobby was so grand and all members of staff (except one who was overly chatty) were extremely courteous, helpful and welcoming. The red lounge at the top also gives a very nice view of Dubai.. The floor butler also greeted us and told us we could call him anytime we wanted. They even left us a very tasty chocolate cake and a card in our room for our anniversary. Our stay was very comfortable and we really enjoyed staying at the hotel. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding and had a wide variety of food on offer. Besides, we ordered rice and daal once late at night and it tasted soooo good.. Better than some of the best and so called Michelin restaurants in India where I have eaten recently... (and for which I have just written a bad review just before this one)....we had a couple of hours before we left for the airport and we hung out in the cafe in the lobby. So we ordered a couple of drinks and a portion of fries. I must say the quality of the French fries was nothing but awesssomme.. So fresh and tasty.. And they gave us two small bottles of sauce and Mayo with it.. Yummy.. You guys gotta try it for yourselves...
All in all... This hotel deserves nothing less than a score of 100 out of 10. Definitely definitely recommended. You will not be disappointed.
