Dubai,December,best location,restaurants etc

Myself and husband planning first trip to Dubai for 1 week in December and looking for advice on best location. Not keen on being in middle of a construction site (shame as the Grosvenor looks good) ,but also not too keen on massive resort style hotels which seem to occupy the beach areas. Looking maybe for compromise. Is Dubai Creek area an option? We like to have a choice of local restaurants in the evening and not to be restricted to the hotel offerings. Is this difficult in Dubai? Also are there substantial savings on booking flight and hotel separately or going for a package?
