Stayed in the Raffles Dubai for a week. Absolutely amazing service and accommodation. We booked the Executive Club rooms - well worth it! The staff in the Club Lounge went out of their way to greet hotel guests and made every effort to accommodate requests. I'd heard great things about the spa, but unfortunately couldn't find a suitable time slot....
