I took a club room for 2 nights in late December 2013. Some renovation work was ongoing in part of the lobby but most was finished and the hotel had a very nice new contemporary look. I booked direct on the hotel's website and got a great deal. The room, although only having had a "soft" renovation, was large, immaculate... More

I honestly can say that everything was perfect, as usual. I've stayed at Le Royal Meridien many times, and till now, the genuine smile of the staff keeps on amazing me... I know that other hotels (only few) can offer similar facilities, ambiance, modern designs as well as immaculate rooms, but it's the overwhelming friendliness of the staff what makes... More

The hotel provided excellent accommodation and service. I also enjoyed dining at whEAT and can say without a doubt that they offer some of the best food I have ever tasted. I wish to say a special thank you to Victor, the waiter at whEAT, who was always friendly and ready to serve.

Hotel has recently undergone refurbishment - better offering in terms of variety for breakfast; rooms are new especially the toilets; faster check in and check out services. I have never encountered any rain in Abu Dhabi except this time and concierge offered an umbrella.

We arrived to the hotel in the middle of an afternoon to receive a very welcome arrival from the people at the door. Check-in was friendly, efficient and correct. Our room was exceptionally clean and inviting, with an excellent view over to the Corniche. The evening's Royal Club Lounge atmosphere was the perfect way to finish the day, with attentive... More

An impressive hotel suited in a good location. My room was a corner suite, very nice. Food, drink and service as expected from this chain. I wouldn't say this hotel would be suitable for weeks holiday to the UAE, as it seems to be used mainly by business people. There is an Irish bar in the grounds which serves European... More

Hotel Class:5 star — Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi 5*
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rediscover Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, as the city's long-standing landmark re-emerges, transformed. Conceived over 2 decades ago by the ruling Royal family of Abu Dhabi, the hotel retains its distinctive avant garde exterior, that resembles an eye when seen from above. Strategically located in the heart of the city's commercial district, the hotel is within a 20 minute drive to all areas of Abu Dhabi and just a walk away from major corporations, shopping, parks and the Corniche. Curious minds are awakened by the Arrival Artwork as guests enter and discover the Hub, Le Meridien's re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby, where they are immediately transported into a stimulating space. Recently renovated, the hotel's redesign is inspired by both its European roots and its local heritage. Curated art in the hotel inspires a new perspective and discovery continues at check-in with Unlock Art, where guests receive a limited-edition room key designed exclusively by an LM100 artist, which also allows guests to receive complimentary access to the Manarat Al Saadiyat, a 15,400 square meter tribute that brings the story of Saadiyat to life. The 202 spacious guest rooms and 74 lavish suites reveal the city's skyline and coast with panoramic views and feature contemporary, chic design and Le Meridien signature beds. The hotel's transformation also makes it the culinary destination in the city, providing a fresh palate of tastes, including the first Jean-Georges Restaurant, the city's only revolving bar/lounge with 360 degree views of Abu Dhabi, coffee culture brought to life with Illy and the only authentic Irish pub in the city. The hotel boasts 10 restaurants and bars offering best in class culinary exploration. With 8 meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 1,300 attendees, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi's conference facilities provide ample room to encourage creative interaction and forward thinking. ... more   less
