Everything about this hotel was great. The check in was seamless and easy. The room was really big and a bit over the top but thats Dubai generally for you. The bathroom was a bit unconventional with glass windows and NO privacy if you are travelling with a couple of people. The bathroom does have roller blinds but still..
The breakfast was on the top floor and had at least 20-30 different main courses...again over the top. As a tea drinker I judge the quality of hotel by the quality of tea that i get..and the tea was delicious. The view is great if you can enjoy in the Dubai heat.
the hotel is literally next to the mall of emirates. there is an internal walkway that you can take to enter the mall....The shopping was OK..over all a good experience. I will stay here again.
One tip - If you take a taxi from the airport, be prepared to pay in Dirhams as the taxi drivers will not take credit cards and there is an atm in the hotel for your convenience.
