Typical Hyatt quality in a fantastic building, right next to and connected to the Abu Dhabi Exhibition Center. This is reportedly the most heavily leaning building in the world. You can tell only from a distance, as inside the building is very much straight. Rooms are well designed, although I wish the desk was larger and the chairs had wheels for easier move. The hotel only starts on the 18th floor lobby and up, which I found unusual. That means you need to take 2 elevators to reach your room, one to the lobby and one fron the lobby, which might be inconvenient. Two things that bothered me: there was usually no taxi cabs waiting outside, and calling a taxi required a 5 to 10 minute wait. Also the exit from the hotel was complicated: it took more than 10 minutes ride for the taxi to reach the street leading to downtown. The restaurant on the 18th floor has an outstanding view of the freeway. Ask to sit outside, especially on a cool evening. The food is excellent, both for breakfast and dinner. The location is good for the Exhibition Center, not very convenient for the Corniche and office area around it.
