I can't say enough nice things about the hotel and the staff! I arrived at the hotel early around 8:00 am and asked if there was any way I could check in early. The hotel night manager came out and said he will do his best given that this was the day after Ramadan and the hotel was fully booked the previous night. They had me situated quite comfortably in the lobby and got me a room after about an hour's wait...amazing. Most hotels would simply ask you to come back at the normal check in time or at best an hour or two early. These guys went out of their way to get me a room. The room was fantastic...contemporary design and very, very clean! WiFi was free and worked well. The hotel location was great as well. The Abu Dhabi mall is about a 10 minute walk. The food court at the mall was excellent--as far as food courts go. Also, the airport shuttle bus terminal is only a short block away from the hotel--very convenient. There is also nice supermarket adjacent to the hotel. The shuttle is a lot more economical than taking the cab to/from the airport.
