The sheraton Dubai Creek is one of the older hotels in Dubai however also one of the best managed hotels I’ve stayed in in Dubai.
The Hotel is tri-angular built. When you arrive by taxi you arrive in a lobby with access to some meeting rooms, two very high escalators and the bell boys. Nothing special. Reception by the bell boys is always friendly and luggage is taken care of by giving you a receipt.
When moving up the escalators you clearly see the big atrium structure and you know you’re at a special place. Arriving at the ground floor you have access to several restaurants varying from an English pub to a Japanse restaurant. There are some big seating area’s with comfy chairs and a big waterfall, these are begin served by the bar. There are some big seating area’s with comfy chairs and a big waterfall. The lounge is also located on this floor and has plenty of seating space and offers a selection of drinks and food.
Check-in is further down the hall and has three desks with comfortable seats where you’re being checked-in. I’ve never had to wait for check-in or check-out. The procedure is swift and efficient. A cold towel or drink is offered whilst waiting for check-in. What I particulary like is the hotel reaches out to you via email prior to the arrival – not only via the standard Sheraton email – so you can arrange for airport pick-up, room preferences etc. its very worry free travelling staying in a hotel like this. You give the luggage tag from the bell boy to the receptionist and your luggage is delivered to your room a few minutes after your get in the room.
Furniture in the rooms is classic and looks a bit dated but the beds are comfy and the room always is very clean. I always ask for a high floor facing the creek as these are the quietest rooms and have a real nice view of the creek and the impressive Dubai sky-line. I’ve once stayed in a room facing the front but found it somewhat noisy. Bathrooms are not really big but have a shower in the bath, toilet and bidet. The shower is powerful and a nice touch is they always put the toothbrush and single use razor there.
The gym on the ground floor is recently renewed and has a good selection of cardio and ground equipment. Its next to the swimming pool. Pool is nice with plenty of loungers. Its run by a couple of pool boys who hand out cold towels and take orders from the bar.
I’ve eaten in the Japanese, British and Italian restaurant and found all good. The Japanese restaurant stands out for me with its rich and fresh made buffetsand live cooking. There is a choice to dine on the terrace which is very nice outside of summer. I’ve taken business relations here and all are now returning customers.
Overall a very well run property, good location, nice fitness and pool. Recommended for both business and leisure.
