“A 7-star experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This 7-star hotel dominates the skyline and has an interior to match. Sheer luxury matched by flawless service. It is worth a visit even if a G+T costs more than a meal elsewhere.

“Spectacular.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Recommended by Lonely Planet this also a must see. If you go by taxi and don't walk(like we did) you will be delivered to the correct door in luxury and cool. The inside of this now hotel is amazing (and free).

“Very interesting - and international artifacts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Beautiful. Expensive. Well worth a look; especially the displays of artifacts from around the globe, dating back hundreds years BC, and most better preserved than in many museums!

“MUST SEE THE GOLD VENDING MACHINE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The Emirates Palace is a beautiful structure. You can walk around the entire facility and be in awe of what it used to be. Now it is a high-end hotel, where we sat an enjoyed high tea. One of the most amusing things to see here is the golf vending machine. You can buy up to an ounce of golf and it will shoot out like a candy bar (with a slightly higher price). I thought it was interesting and a great way to spend an hour out of the heat.

“Too fussy about how you dress!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

I got turned away from Emirates Palace because I was wearing shorts in 40 degree heat! The Lonely Planet guide didn't mention this as an issue and the palace isn't a mosque. Not sure I really want to visit such a pretentious establishment.
