Superbly built and spanking new property. They claim its the tallest hotel in the world now. Location is pretty central with the Dubai mall and Burj Khalifa only 5 minutes away.
I was there for new year celebrations in dubai. Although it was crowded, check-in was pretty smooth. Got a nice room on a high floor with a view of the beach. Rooms are luxuriously furnished and spacious. The bathrooms too are huge with separate areas for shower, bathtub and toilet. A little problem some people might have are the two long glass panes on either side of the bed which look straight into the bathroom. So if you're traveling with older kids, business colleagues etc the situation might be a bit awkward.
All the light controls are on a touch panel but its still a little buggy - every time i turned on the bathroom lights at night to use the loo, the entire room would light up.
La Farine - the all day cafe had a superb selection of sandwiches and salads.
The breakfast buffet was pretty lavish too. Although it was'nt a part of my room plan, I ended up splurging on it.
There are many other restaurants too but didnt get a chance to try them.
The Call centre thing for all your needs is a bit annoying because everytime you call a different person answers and they have no clue what you requested earlier and why it has'nt been done. I guess they were running at a full house so some confusion is expected but having separate numbers to deal with requirements the old fashioned way can sort out a lot of problems.
In all a very pleasurable and comfortable stay. Will definitely stay here again.
