I stayed 6 days at the Hilton while attending a trade show. The hotel is located only a few miles from the Exposition Center so it was only a short 10 AED taxi ride to the show. It is not a downtown hotel, so if you want to experience the city, you have to take a 20 minute drive downtown. On the other hand, you don't have to put up with the noise and traffic of the city. I received an upgraded room which turned out to be a two room suite. The main room included a large sitting area and a dining room size table. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious.
I ate breakfast, and even a dinner or two in the executive lounge on the 8th floor. The breakfast was buffet style and included everything from fruit and juices to pastry to eggs and sausage. They would cook an omelet to order if you wished. The staff in the lounge was always friendly and helpful. Thanks to John, Loredana, and Jude for the cheerful greetings and great service. The hot coffee in the morning and cold drinks in the evening were appreciated.
The front desk and concierge staff were helpful. Check in was a breeze and they went out of their way to make sure a FedEx package was delivered directly to my room.
The housekeeping staff did a great job. I never saw them, but my room was always made up and ready.
Don't forget your plug adapters, Abu Dhabi uses the British style plugs. If you do, the concierge staff can lend you one and the Carefour store a few blocks away has a good selection.
All in all a good experience in a nice city. I would recommend the Hilton Capital Grand for anyone travelling to Abu Dhabi who does not want the hassle of being down town.
