This is the second year running that I have stayed in the hotel on business. Each time has been for 6 days and I wish I could have stayed longer!
My wife accompanies me each time and has a wonderful time relaxing by the pool and availing herself of the many spa facilities!
We book a club floor room, which I can highly recommend. The benefits are well worth paying the extra money, considering how expensive Dubai is generally. The food presentations - including breakfast, afternoon tea and evening buffet - are second to none. Chefs are on hand to ensure that the food is always freshly prepared and there is plenty of choice. Cocktails, wines, beers, spirits are served each evening between 5-8 and the staff are very attentive! The service cannot be faulted.
I like the positioning of the hotel from a business perspective as it is only 15 minutes drive to my meetings in the business district - you also get to avoid the main Sheikh Zayed Road, which can get very busy at peak times.
Otherwise, all facilities are excellent: pool area, spa, bars and dining areas. The Belgian bar in the adjoining hotel, Crowne Plaza, is highly recommended: great range of beers and food in a lively atmosphere, sitting on the terrace.
Overall, the management has definitely got it right as the staff are very client service focused and they all walk round with a smile on their face.
I'll certainly be back!
