Reviewed July 9, 2011

We stayed here while visiting our daughter on a work assignment to Abu Dhabi. Our daughter was staying here so we naturally wanted to stay at the same hotel and we are very glad we did. Our 11th story deluxe "corner" room was very affordable with a beautiful view from the windows all along one entire wall facing the Arabian Gulf. It also had a separate living area and kitchenette which was very nice. The service was impeccable, the location was great, and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Our daughter had the standard room and wished she had ours. I recommend paying the little bit extra...

I stayed for a couple of busy days in June 2011. The hotel impresses with an impressive foyer and a slick checking in facility. Concierge services could not be more helpful. P J's bar is a relaxing place by the pool. The only other facilities used were the excellent breakfast which kicked the day of well. My broom was spotless with ample room and , quite possibly, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in (I just wish I'd had more time in it. Altogether a very comfortable base from which to operate.

This is very much a business hotel, right in the centre of Abu Dhabi. Rooms were hit & miss - the Royal Towers were very comfortable but bothered by noise from the nearby bar & not so great a view. Staff & food at most of the restaurants all excellent - staff in general a bit lack-lustre & found breakfast at main dining restaurant a bit dull. Anywhere else this would be a very good hotel but with the high standards in the UAE it needs to do a little bit more to be up there with the best.

Stayed at this hotel as a 2 and a half night stop over on the way from Japan to the UK. Everything went very smoothly: we arrived at 4 in the morning looking slightly jaded after an 11 hour flight, taxi doors whisked open, luggage straight to the rooms and a super quick check in.
We didn't book for breakfast but did eat at Amalfi one night and L'Opera for lunch. Both had good food and excellent service. We also had a drink at the Irish bar as it was happy day - band playing and very busy.
The room was spacious and clean with a very comfy bed. The air con was fierce (this seemed to be the case in all of Abu Dhabi) and I would have preferred a remote for the controls but this is a very minor point.
I liked the pool area - clean and tidy, lifeguard on duty and huge towels. I didn't use the gym but my partner did and said it was fine.
Taxis always seemed to be about or produced very quickly. We used the hotel limo service to go to the mosque as I wanted them to wait for us. It probably cost more than a taxi but was a calmer experience for a passenger!
My only gripe - not free internet unless we upgraded. Had got a bargain deal on the room so didn't want to upgrade. Not a problem for two days but would be on a longer stay.

the only silver lining to this hotel was its restaurant 'Oceans', its a seafood restaurant which had pretty good food. Overall, the spa was disappointing and the service wasnt great either. The view from the room was fantastic. I didnt think it was value for money though.

Excellent hotel for business travellers for meetings in downtown. Modern rooms, good room service menus's and breakfasts and very attentive staff. Only gripe is that some rooms don't have wi-fi. Would stay again.

Generally speaking the hotel was very nice, lovely pool area, good food and helpful staff. Paid extra for access to executive club rooms but the only room available on that floor was a smoking room facing the road. Settled for a non-smoking room with sea view. Very accommodating staff on the executive floor but miserly portions of canapés and the toilet didn't have hand towels, and despite reporting this, they were not replenished.

Despite the above, I did enjoy my stay, however, they do need to pay attention to detail in order to warrant a higher score.

Rediscover Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, as the city's long-standing landmark re-emerges, transformed.

Strategically located in the heart of the city's commercial district, the hotel is within a 20 minute drive to all areas of Abu Dhabi and just a walk away from major corporations, shopping, parks and the Corniche. Curious minds are awakened by the Arrival Artwork as guests enter and discover the Hub, Le Meridien's re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby, where they are immediately transported into a stimulating space. Recently renovated, the hotel's redesign is inspired by both its European roots and its local heritage. Curated art in the hotel inspires a new perspective and discovery continues at check-in with Unlock Art, where guests receive a limited-edition room key designed exclusively by an LM100 artist, which also allows guests to receive exclusive benefits at a local cultural institution. The 202 spacious guest rooms and 74 lavish suites reveal the city's skyline and coast with panoramic views and feature contemporary, chic design and Le Meridien signature beds. The hotel's transformation also made it the culinary destination in the city, providing a fresh palate of tastes, including the first Jean-Georges Restaurant- Market Kitchen, the city's only revolving lounge bar and grill - Stratos- with 360 degree views of Abu Dhabi, coffee culture brought to life with Illy and the only authentic Irish pub - PJ O Reilly's- in the city. The hotel boasts 10 restaurants and bars offering best in class culinary exploration. With 8 meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 1,300 attendees, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi's conference facilities provide ample room to encourage creative interaction and forward thinking. ... more   less
