Being a resident of Dubai, there was no need for me to sleep a night at the Ritz DIFC, so i am unable to comment of the rooms or the sleep quality.
But i am able to tell you about everything else about the hotel as i live close by and use their facilities and restaurants.
Over the past month, i have been visiting almost daily their outdoor garden right behind their famous Belgian Beer Cafe which by the way has an excellent selection of drinks and food in the perfect environment.
The Sunken Garden is a courtyard surrounded by the modern design of the hotel. With large outdoor sofas and private suites. This was the only place in Dubai,where you were able to sit outdoors and not feel the 40 Degree Heat or the Humidity. They found a way to make the courtyard cool as if it were a Dubai Winter evening.
They serve a wide variety of mostly Arabic dishes which were delicious! My favorite dish was the Shish Tawook ( BBQ Chicken Cubes ) and the Fattoush Salad.
The Banana Date Smoothie and the FRESH fruit platter were always my healthy dessert.
After dinner, i would order a grape shisha to help me unwind after a long day. They make one of the best shishas in Dubai. If you are into smoking, then you will not be disappointed.
Apart from the food,drinks and shisha the most impressive part of the Ritz Carlton was the service. Every member of the staff that i encountered was polite, extremely knowledgeable,helpful, and always smiling. To be able to experience that is truly rare.
The service is what lead me to write this review on Trip Advisor, it shouldn't go unnoticed the hard work the staff are putting in to make their guests happy. As soon as i arrive through the lobby door, there are three people standing to greet me and guide me, there is even a washroom attendant that opens the door, hands me a cotton towel after washing my hands and is always smiling.
Last night, we were served complimentary fresh fruit platter and dates as a thank you from the team of the Suken Garden for being regular guests. Again, attention to detail here is impeccable.
In terms of service, this hotel has impressed me tremendously.
Location: You are in the center of Dubai, next door you have the DIFC which offers a wide range of excellent restaurants. Less than 5 min away you are in the Worlds Tallest tower Burj Khalifa and the fountains.
Ritz Carlton DIFC is a real RITZ CARLTON STANDARD HOTEL in terms of SERVICE.
***I cannot comment on the rooms as i have not stayed there ***
