I have been to the Palace hotel downtown several times, and I have decided that I will only stay in that hotel. Everything from location to emaculate rooms to perfect meeting facilities to great food makes you feel treated as a king.
However this is not all, the true jewel of this hotel is its staff, I'm always greeted with a smile by all employees, it is a hotel where the duty manager welcomes you right at the door, Mustapha is one of the best professionals I have met in the hotel industry (and I travelled a lot around the world), his staff are also as professional.
What makes this hotel so special is that I feel I'm at home eventhough I'm away from home; you can stay at the most luxurious hotels but you always have that feeling of being a guest!! but at the palace you feel home.
As I said food also is out of this world, try the Thai restaurant and ask for a table outside overlooking the Dubai fountain, it is an experience not to be missed; and for the meat lovers dpon't go anywhere else apart from Asado the Argentinian restaurant (it is rated one of the best in Dubai).
I can go on and on about this hotel (rather a Palace) and the fact that I only go there says it all.
