My wife & I have just returned home after spending 6 nights at the Doubletree RAK.
On arrival at about 3am we were upgraded to a suite courtesy of Hilton Honours. What a fantastic room and a great start to our holiday. If we had one criticism it would be that there was no opening window in order to get some fresh air and you are obviously relying on the A/C all the time.
This was our 5th visit to RAK and on our previous visits we had stayed at the other Hilton over the road. The hotels are very similar with each having advantages over the other in certain areas and it was good to be able to use the facilities of either hotel and also the Beach Resort Hilton.
The Doubletree being a newer hotel is more modern in appearance.
The staff were absolutely first class. Special mention must go to Shan and his staff in the restaurant. One waiter in particular (I think his name was Shakir) could not do enough for us and was brilliant. There was a good choice of food at each meal. Chef made me a special curry & my wife a extra special sweet on our last night.
The roof top pool bar area was a great place to round off the evenings.
All in all a wonderful stay at a very good hotel.
