We stayed here for 1 week during the middle of Feb 2013. We booked a club room and was given a room on the 11th floor. When we reached the room after checking in we found a large fruit platter and a variety of cookies and cakes for the children. The stay was great made all the more special by the staff, from the cleaning team up to the management. We never had any issues during the stay. The staff at the club lounge was superb, nothing was too much trouble. The same also applies to the restaurant staff (breakfast time in Azur). Every time we visited the pool/spa area we were made to feel very welcome and again the staff attitude was excellent. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and the only other hotel where I have experienced a similar customer service was at the Taj in Mumbai.
The room we had was very spacious and sufficient for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children); the bathroom was spacious and it was great having a separate dressing area. The spacious balcony area was nice to relax in the evening. For getting around we found the metro to be very good; metro station is a 5 minute stroll; the WaFi mall attached to the hotel has some good restaurants. The sound and light show at the WaFi is worth a look.
Anytime I travel to Dubai in the future, Raffles will be my choice for accommodation.
