I spent 6 months in this hotel in 1993, and am back again (2013) for three weeks. It is the best hotel in the airport area (Farwaniyah). Good service, many restaurants. There are also quite a few businesses in the area around the hotel.
The downside is that because it is near the airport, it is also quite far from the city center. There is a National Car Rental agency in the hotel, or the hotel offers shuttle bus service to downtown (I rented a car at the airport).More
