I booked this hotel based on the positive reviews on trip advisor. I arrived at the hotel at 6am and was told that I wasn't able to check in until 2pm.
After 16 hours of travelling I didn't want to wait eight hours to gain access to a room, so the receptionist advised that for 250 Dirham extra I could upgrade to a suite and check in straight away. I paid the extra and was pleased I did. The suites are located on the 17th & 18th floor and my room had a view towards the port in the distance.
I can't comment on the difference between a standard room and a suite as I didn't see a standard room, but my suite on the 17th floor was very large, the bed was huge, and the pillows, mattress and quilt were very comfortable and of an excellent standard. The lighting system was easy to use - thankfully the bellboy who brought my suitcase up showed me how it worked - but if he hadn't I would have been slightly confused!
Wifi connection in the room was excellent and I was able to make Skype phone & video calls without any problems. Bottled water is provided free of charge as are small bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, a shaving razor , shaving gel and a toothbrush with a small tube of toothpaste.
There are plenty of restaurants nearby and if you want to explore the rest of Dubai, there are two metro stations within walking distance: Burjuman and Al Karama. (It is about a 20 minute train journey to the Dubai Mall metro station) A taxi from the hotel to terminal 3 at the airport costs around 25 dirhams, which I thought was very good for the journey time of about 10 to 15 minutes.
Will book this hotel again when stopping over in Dubai next time.
