From the top, I don't why it cost me 70 AED to get to this hotel from airport, while it only took me 38 to get back to airport.
The hotel is brand new, with two sky-scrappers, of which, only tower A is operational. Stayed at 66/F with a beautiful view over Gulf. Still, the window needs some cleaning.
The hotel is conveniently located with a 10 mins walk to Business Bay Metro Station, only one stop to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. But given the burning sun in Dubai, a 5 mins walk would actually act like a marathon. Besides, it's not expensive at all to take a taxi.
Check-in during the late night, was somehow not as smooth as expected. A group of crew has just arrived before, and clearly occupied the most desks. Surprisingly, I got a cold "No, and you have to wait" when I asked the concierge to take me to the lounge floor as an elite, and it was even more odd especially when I finally had my turn and the receptionist asked me again why not directly going to the lounge for a private check-in.
The outdoor pool is quite nice, with a direct view of Burj Khalifa, but it closes at 9pm.
The 24-hrs running lounge occupies the entire 37/F, which certainly adds extra preference for this hotel.
The service, however, still carries the JW Marriott style. People recognize you, chat with you, offer introduction and recommendation about the city. For the very most part, I enjoyed the stay.
