Stayed for two nights in October en route to Europe. Had an Emirates package which included airport pick-up/drop-off, accommodation and breakfast. This was very good value. Jumeirah Beach, in my opinion, is one of the best locations to stay in Dubai (we have also stayed near the Mall of the Emirates). There is definitely a holiday feel about the area and it is fascinating sitting in one of the many cafes along The Walk just people-watching and (in my husband's case) "car watching". There are shuttle buses to both The Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall and also a pick-up van to take you to the hop-on-hop-off bus.
The hotel, itself, is wonderful. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable - the balcony was definitely a bonus. Unlike others, we had no problems with construction noise - we were out during the day and by the time we returned at night the building work had stopped. The only negative with our room was the bathroom - I had major problems with the shower and ended-up flooding the bathroom. Why are most hotel showers these days so hard to operate?
Breakfast was more than adequate and the meal we had one night in the restaurant was excellent.
In all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting accommodation in Dubai.
