We were booked in for a one night stop over on our way home during July. We arrived quite early in the morning, and we were able to check in early which was fantastic! The room was luxurious and quiet, the bed and pillows were very comfortable, and we had a view of the sea. The room service was excellent also.
The hotel has a pool, but we didn't have enough time to use it.
The Dubai mall is only a five minute cab ride away, the Burj Khalifa is roughly the same.
I recommend the Shangri-La for a extravagant stopover!
