Went to emirates palace to see how beautiful it was like everyone was saying and it was simply gorgeous! It is totally a palace. Didn't stay there but went and took pictures and loved it. A little expensive for a room but next time I would splurge and try it. You have to see this place it's wonderful and so nicely decorated!

Yes there is a gold vending machine in a lobby where you can purchase a gold watch, pendant, medal... Not to my taste or my purse but if you have a few thousands to spare...
The building itself is massive and beautifully decorated, you can wonder around and even the roadside curbs are made of granit.
We wanted to have lunch at Mezlai which does Emerati cuisine, finding the restaurant was not easy however the staff are wonderful and very helpful and we had a great lunch, sitting outside in a private courtyard, we were given complimentary Arabic coffee with cardamom and saffron and emirate breads and dips.
If you love cars just stand outside the hotel lobby, it must be the meeting point for all the wealthy emiratis and businessmen , a parade of the most expensive cars.

This hotel/attraction hosts a very nice Chinese restaurant, which was very good as the rooms are outside my budget, I took a look in the lobby and outside the building which is a great free excursions and photo opportunity. The interior designs are amazing, but a bit cold in my taste.

It's huge. It's rich. The architecture from outside is splendid but the interior decor neither traditional nor modern. A little overdone to my liking. The gold ATMs & museum pieces does give the place a more museum and less hotel kind of atmosphere!

Beautiful!!! We could see only the part now converted into a luxurious hotel. If your budget allows you can have your meals here. Nice views inside as well as the outside. No entry fees.
