Ladies & Gentlemen.
I'm staying with Carlson Group several years now and I have to say staying loyal is just great, silver and gold members do earn a lot of benefits and rewards. Frankly speaking, this is why I gave Carlson Group and Skywards (Emirates Airlines Frequent Flyer Program) the best rating at the Freddie Awards. For every night staying at a Carlson Group Hotel, you can actually get 5000 points, and starting from 10000 miles can already be redeemed.
That hotel at Dubai Marina is easy to get around and along at the Marina and Jumeirah Beach, hotel's facilities are great too, especially the pool area and fitness center is just excellent.

This hotel is located in Dubai Marina, near the Jumeirah walk and the beach, about 500m, after crossing a bridge, and next to the highway. Not to much noise coming from the highway, the apartments are well isolated. We booked a 100m2 apartment, with separate bathroom and living room, small kitchen with a washing machine. Very comfortable and clean. Staff is good, always ready to help and present 24h. Price-wise very good, especially taking into consideration we stayed there during Easter, other hotels, similar class-wise in the neighbourhood were twice if not three times as expensive, usually for a smaller room. There is no beach as the place is a little more inside Dubai Marina, but the pool is great, although in the shadow after 1 or 2 pm. The hotel offers an access to a beach located on the Palm (called RIVA) for 150 dirham, not worth going to, there is nothing special about this beach and it's only accessible via taxi. You're better off going the public beach, 10 minutes away from the hotel, and access is free. Good restaurants in the hotel, worth going to. The nearest metro station is located 10 minutes by foot away, and remains a cheap, fast an comfortable way to get around Dubai. Free wifi in the room for multiple devises was a huge plus. Overall a very pleasant hotel we would recommend, and go back to next time in Dubai.

When we first arrived, it was mass chaos at reception. The systems were down, and ther wasn't enough staff to cope with the arrivals. It too over two hours to check in..!!!

Once we were checked in, toe rooms were reasoably sized and functional, and for thos who need to be in the Marina area, it was well located.

If we went back to Dubai, we would consider staying there again.

Room Tip: ensure you have completed all the formalities before you arrive at the hotel, the front desk staff...

Why is it that hotels cannot admit they have screwed up..... We had booked a Deluxe Studio with balcony. When we got to the room, noticed there was no balcony went straight to reception to change the room. Was told that they were not informed of MY special request........
Showed them the booking confirmation where in the first line it says "this apartment features a Balcony" was then informed that we could get an other room for night but would have to change rooms agin in the morning it was already 2.00 in the morning and we were not going to be sitting out that night...decided to review the situation in the morning.
A few hours later in the morning back to reception explained the situation once again it was not there fault that we did not have a balcony as after them it was the booking company fault but they would change the room in the day and move our bags.....looking good!!!
Back to the hotel 16.00 new room...... Only to be told the room would not be ready for at least an other hour!!,
This we did not think this was good enough as we had to change to go out for a meeting, it was not until. I got my iPad out and showed them the booking site that clearly says that the balcony is not a lucky option to get that they upgraded us to a 1 bedroom apartment.
Problem solved but not a nice way to start a visit to Dubai!!!
The rooms are nice and clean with a comfy bed and free wifi is available.
Well placed to walk to the marina but it is also close to the highway and the noise from the road is a problem if you are a light sleeper I think if you you are on the upper floors it would not be so bad.
The biggest down side is that the pool is in the shade from 13.00 so forget it if you are going for a tan..
The staff is overall friendly just the front desk staff should remember that the guest are paying for a for service and a product and expect to get it...
I do not think we would return to this hotel as there is better offers near by.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floors and as far away from the highway.

The accommodation here was superb. I had a one bedroom apartment, with a great kitchenette so was able to sort out my own breakfasts. This was necessary as Breakfast did not start until 7.00am in the restaurant, and I needed to be in the office or on the way to the office at this time.

One small complaint was that there was no dish washing liquid or clothes washing powder, but other than that it was great.

Be aware that this hotel is situated on a 15 lane highway and doesn't have double glazing, so there is quite a bit of traffic noise, but other than that it was clean, close to my office - a comfortable walk in the evening, but only AED$15.00 max for a taxi in the morning. Close to the Dubai Marina Mall, and walking distance to the Dubai Marina itself.

Situated between two metro stations so easy to get to other attactions.

I recommend this hotel if you are:
a big family, in a business trip with colleagues, family staying for a long period
I don't recommend this hotel if you are:
a couple in a honeymoon, couple staying for short period, solo traveler, seeking a high level of pampering

Accessibility: There is a Metro station (Dubai Marina station) 5 minutes walk from the hotel

Apartments: available with 2 or 3 master vast bedrooms with an extra toilet for visitors. The apartments are very well furnished with a fully equipped kitchen.

I stayed here with my family in a delux family room. I had booked standard but I was upgraded just because they could and this is the 3rd time I have been upgraded in dubai hotels. The room was very clean and beds super comfy. The location is perfect for the marina and the walk which are the nicer more beachy places to stay in dubai which I chose as we were with children. The staff are very good and helpful and will book restaurants etc for you. The only thing u would say is dont use their taxi as it is overpriced and taxis in dubai are frequent and very cheap. Would definitely stay here again.
