WOW!!!!!!!! I have traveled all over and stayed in many hotels, especially America, well America needs to take lessons from this hotel!! Now we did get the upgrade, and for a family of 3 it is well worth it. All rooms get new bottles of water everyday, there is tea & coffee in your room, the amenities in the bathroom are so that you dont need to bring yours. We had the upgrade so we had fresh fruit everyday! Now with the upgrade you got to enjoy the breakfast in the lounge on the 9th floor, wonderful selection of fruits, yogurt, cheeses, nuts, local cuisine and made to order eggs and pancakes,fresh breads & pastries Juices, coffee, tea and sodas!Through out the day you could go grab drinks, and at some point they would have have out more fruit and put out a little baked good. In the evenings they would have drinks(beer, wine & liquor, you pour!!!!) and "canapes" which was more then enough for us for our dinner. so i def recommend the upgrade. The beach???? Wow, how relaxing,I believe it is a man made beach, kind of on a waterway, but still a beach! there are hotel workers on the beach and they come make up your lounge chair for you and bring you cold water, they check on you through out the day. You can also tell them when you want a beverage from the restaurant, and they will send a server over, no food though:( Now the restaurant I thought was a little pricey, but they do have a nice salad bar, that is not on the menu, it usually comes with an entree, but they allowed me to get it with my soup and did not charge extra. The pool has the best food deal, burger or pizza with a beer was a great deal!! You can always walk to the souk next door where there is a grocery store, and there are plenty of items you can buy for lunch, we always got a cornish pasty and there is a microwave in the store you can use. So when we go back to Abu Dhabi, this is my pick, no its not in downtown, but Its a short drive to malls, shopping and downtown,personally I wold rather be here!!

This hotel is designed by the Shangri-La group, who always have been my favourite designers of hotels. Although I was a bit dissapointed with the swimming pool, the hotel is overall nice and modern, clean and new. The view on the beach is stunning at sunset, and there are relaxing tents and seafood barbeque available for dinner. I could use free WIFI in the room which worked perfect, but prepare a cc card or 100 USD as minibar guarantee when you check inn.
Didn't cehck out the restaurants.

Hotel good. Sort of luxurious Novotel. Big rooms. Comfy. Not much furniture.
Restaurant is quite unorganized. Food so-so. About 50 types of food coming from one kitchen, from pizza to vietnamese... Great terrace in the winter months. Altogether; nothing so special. Shangri-la; you need to work some more on this concept...

Room Tip: ask for sea view

My partner and I stayed here for four nights at the beginning of February 2013 in a trader’s club superior room, which was excellent value for money. After an overnight flight we were lucky to be able to check in at 9:00am and straightaway were able to access the club lounge. Free bottled water was provided around the pool and at the beach. Overall we had an excellent stay and we will definitely return to this hotel.

The hotel is very nice, modern and clean with good service. It has a small beach but do not expect a beach like next to the see. Most of the hotels in Abu Dhabi have a beach on one of the canals. This is a bit negative on the view as what you see is an other hotel or buildings on the other side so you have a feeling like staying on the river.Other than this I've enyojed staying there. Breakfast was nice with wide choices. Price is very reasonable compared to other hotels in Abu Dhabi. The hotel is close to Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which is a must to see.

I spent a couple of days in Traders Hotels in Abu Dhabi, in January and February 2013. On the whole, this hotel is very good.

Valet service is professional, security is good and check-in is fast. Concierge is good.

Rooms are very nice, comfortable, and quiet. The standard room is large enough, with a good range of amenities (soap, shampoon, toothbrush, etc. of quality), nice TV with large choice of channels, good AC easy to handle, a safe large enough for a laptop and other things, good bed and pillows, excellent Internet or Wifi...

The pool area is small but with a very good service. You can swin (20 meter long and 3 meter large swimming pool). Same comment for the gym: small but equipment is of quality.

Breakfast area offers a large choice of good food and beverage. Coffee is good. Tea as well. Still, the hotel doesn't propose butter but a mix of butter and vegetable oil... which is strange is such a hotel. If you'd rather have real butter for breakfast, you can ask the kitchen and they will provide you with.

The only restaurant available offers good food. Still you have sometimes to be patient... 30 minutes for a burger is common. I don't like the advertisement for buffets you receive on your room's voice message box... This is annoying! Part of the restaurant area is cold, even sometimes freezing.

The beach is a nice area. And you can swin there.

Otherwise, I really didn't appreciate the package/rate policy during the Idex exhibition. This is too much taking advantage of the busy situation of the city.

Room Tip: Avoid renting a car with AVIS as they are far away from International airport terminals 1 & 3. N...
