I was in Dubai for a convention at the International Convention center which is located across the street. I chose this hotel as it looked a bit more contemporary than the Fairmont and is about half the price. The room was beautiful. Clean, high ceiling, all glass rooms with amazing views. The sushi restaurant is rated one of the best in Dubai and worth the praise. But not cheap. The only criticism i have is the check-in and out. it took forever and after a 15 minute wait to get to a clerk they had my reservation but had to search for a room. I found this rather odd for such a hotel as usually hotels have a room already assigned before check-in. It was another wait on check out. This aside i recommend value for money, i will definitely return if i need to stay in this area again.
