I have driven past this hotel many times and thought that I should check it out. It looks like the rooms have great views over the Creek and all the rooms seem to have balconies. Also, the Copthorne conjures images of old grand hotels from the past. However, the reality didn't quite match my expectations. I was put in a small corner of the hotel, with a view so unappealing that it was best covered up by the curtains. The staff were very polite and professional and I had no problems checking in and out. The sport club was actually quite good and the pool great. It was a pity I only got to the pool late that evening due to being in meetings all day. I didn't have breakfast, which was not included, and I didn't eat in the hotel, so I can't comment on dining there, but the reception cafe could have been a lot more attentive to guests. I sat and had a meeting in the cafe without even once being offered tea or coffee. The staff put me in a smoking room, which wasn't so pleasant. Also, be warned about the taxis. The hotel tries to push you into using their own 'in-house' taxis, but the drivers are even more clueless about where to go than normal taxi drivers and that is REALLY saying something. I nearly missed my flight because the taxi driver got completely lost trying to find his way to the airport, even though the airport was a short distance away.
If this hotel could consider giving me a decent room, I would consider coming back here again. I am a big fan of the Deira area, which is where I usually stay. It is a great location if you want to walk to City Centre Mall. If I had a decent room and the sport club and pool were actually quite good, then I might come back to this hotel again. don't use their taxis, if possible.
