Stayed at the Shangri La, on this visit to Dubai as an alternative to my regular choice the Ritz Carlotn at DIFC. Both hotels are on opposite sides of the Sheikh Zyed Road, but Shangri La is almost 30% cheaper. That said, its not fair to compare with the Ritz (which is a more premium positioning), and oddly not quite the same standard as other Shangri La hotels in Asia I've stayed at (I suspect it will need some refurbishing soon). The regular rooms were spacious with consistent service levels across reception, laundry and floor staff - infact every interaction is freindly and in line with what you've grown to expect with Shangri La worldwide. I made extensive use of the business centre for meetings, and they were well-organised, though I think a polycom installation with a phone line in each meeting room is much-required. The food at the hotel is quite good as well - the buffet breakfast and lunch in the lobby restaurant, as also the oriental and moroccan restuarants on the 2nd floor were of high standard. The hotel is a short cab ride from Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa, with a large grocery store, the metro station and a number of restaurants nearby. The only complaint was some periodic noise in the room - unsure if it was the AC unit or something hitting against the glass window and the slightly unreliable wi-fi.
