just returned from shangrila abu dhabi. first of all would like to say we were a little aprehensive regarding the location of the hotel but the hotel surroundings ,rooms and personal touches from all of the staff totally outweighed the location dilemma. upon arrival greeted by doorman dressed in full arabic uniform showed into grand reception area greeted again by two asian door ladies full of smiles. first impressions last and this was a wonderfull first impression. arrived 5 hours earlier than check in but was looked after by the service manager marianna who was very friendly and made you feel at ease straight away. she gave us a temporary room to shower and relax then provided our pre booked room an hour earlier than expected. from start to finish the staff were really friendly and personable towards us from the lifeguards to the managers of the hotel. the property is grand and the rooms are beautiful (premium room was much larger than standard room) all in all we would most definately stay at this hotel again on returning to abu dhabi. last note we travelled with our 6 year old daughter ,being no childrens club at the hotel dont let this put you off because they do cater for children in a small capacity which was enough for us. excellent hotel
