Had a quick two night visit to Abu Dhabi and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel and standard room. The room was spacious with a large bed, couch and work area. The bathroom was very large with double sink, separate shower/tub and toilet area. The shower had a rain shower head which was nice but others in our party did not appreciate when it came to wash long hair. the view of the mosque across the creek/river was wonderful. The service was first rate and very quick. An added benefit was the workout are which included several cardio stations, machines, dumbbells and free weights with bench and squat rack. The room rate included breakfast buffet which was spread over several connected rooms and offered fresh fruit, smoked meats, cereals, omelet station, pre cooked eggs and an endless supply of bread/baked goods options. Will review the Marco Pierre restaurant separately but suffice it to say that the restaurant options were world class.
There was a shopping mall ten minutes walking distance away.
Others in our party stayed at the Ritz across the river which was $150/night more expensive but the Fairmont exceeded the Ritz in rooms quality, gym facility and food options.
Definitely would recommend and will return.
