We stayed here for the HSBC Golf Open last week and must say was extremely impressed with this hotel. Only a year old so still finishing off the smaller detail. Courteous and very pleasant staff who have obviously been trained to smile and greet you all day long - not complaining though, just an observation - it was a bit over the top at times. Our room was very pleasant, clean, big and shiny.The bathroom was enormous, very modern with lovely touches - the toiletries were very good.
One small complaint, the lighting in hotel rooms never take into account a woman putting on her makeup - and this new hotel also missed that touch. The mirrors and sockets were miles from each other so she struggled to do her hair and apply her makeup and had to sit under a lamp in a corner of the room putting her face on!!! She was not a happy bunny!
The location of this hotel is miles from anywhere - do your homework before you go as the City is half an hour away and there is nothing else in the vicinity.
All in all a very pleasant hotel, good food, excellent service but extortionate drink prices but it is Abu Dhabi.
The buffet is very good for breakfast, freshly cooked, and so much to choose from, dinner can be taken there or in one of the other 2 restaurants - though the 55 and 5th Grill Restaurant (named after a Starwood address in the USA) is a very expensive place to eat (£300 for 3 of us - be warned)..
If I was to go back to Abu Dhabi for the golf I can't say I would stay here again - its just too far out and there is absolutely nothing going on in and around the hotel.
