This is our 3rd visit to this hotel for our Dubai trip. We keep coming back because of the previous good experience. Again, I love this location as it's close to the Festival City where you can find shops, a hypermarket & lots of good restaurants just next door. A taxi trip to downtown Dubai is only 15 mins and cost you less than AED40.
As an ambassador member, we got a free upgrade from executive room to a suite. We arrived early in the morning and so our room wasn't ready. We were given a room to rest first and when our suite was ready in the evening, we moved. It's a nice gesture of the staff to assign a room for us first as we were tired after the long flight. Even it's a long wait to have our suite ready, it's worth the visit. The suite is huge and nicely decorated. The only little disappointment is that… we can't see the Burj Khalifa from the suite. Anyway, the suite is truly great that we enjoyed the stay a lot!
Again, the food variety at Anise is truly awesome. We enjoyed our breakfast there every morning. The new outlet, Choix is quite a lovely spot. We tried their bakery which is quite good too.
Would love to return to this hotel again for our next visit.
