I stayed in this hotel when it first opened a few years back and I have to say it is maturing fine. All areas are well maintained, the food and beverages are good and the staff friendly and efficient.

I'll keep this short and sweet: the staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and prompt with their service. The rooms were clean, spacious and the internet was pretty good. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Emirates Mall (with the indoor ski slope) and not far from one of the train (subway? Whatever they're calling it) stations.

The breakfast buffet was just okay. There was quite a bit of selection, but they didn't really have much that interested me. However, the restaurants located in the hotel served good food (for dinner, etc), so I can't complain too much.

Overall I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The staff went out of their way to be helpful which made this particular trip much easier to manage.

This hotel ticks all the boxes. it is modern, well equiped, located near the beach and the metro. the staff is always friendly and pro-actively pay attention to customers across all departments. security, room service, front desk, concierge, restaurant, bar, pool, everywhere you find staff greeting you and anticipating any need. Whatever you want it will be dealt with and the staff will follow up and check if it has been to your entire satisfaction. Be it an early lunch or late breakfast at the rooftop bar or an excursion to Abu Dhabi, a reservation in one of the premium hotels in town or just a cocktail to your likings, you name it and they will take care of it. room service will check several times a day if you need anything and staff recognises and welcomes you everywhere you go. Staff works well together in a relaxed and professional manner. it is obvious that they have been trained to the highest standard one only expects in president Hotels such as the Westin- alike, be it without the military-alike formality from the emiratespalace and instead the personal warm hearted family friendliness with that professional efficiency behind.
The food quality is good everywhere in this hotel and staff is eager to adjust the cocktails to your personal liking. same for room service and concierge services. i will return to this hotel and can recommend it for both business and leasure. Customer is top priority in this hotel.

Room Tip: 6th floor rooms with view to Burj Al Arab and Atlantis, but if not available, just enjoy the rooftop...

Charming hotel with a location right next to the Mall of the Emirates and a short walk to the metro.

Hotel staff were extremely helpful and courteous and made it an Absoloutly enjoyable stay.

They have a booking facility for almost any event or tour you would like to take in Dubai.

There is an ever present limousine service right outside the hotel which is sometimes cheaper than taking a public taxi (talk to the drivers directly rather than booking through the hotel) - drop off to airport cost only 70 AED

Hotel employees were very kind, always greeting, helped out with directions, brought things in a timely manner. The hotel always had Lexus taxis available. The restaurants at the hotel were very good, Thai food especially. The scent the hotel had was very authentic and middle eastern, LOVED it! Everything was very clean. The location is perfect, walking distance from the Mall of Emirates. Also walking distance to the train station. The suite was very spacious and had a beautiful balcony. The bar, restaurant, and pool on the roof was also perfect, especially with the view of the Burj Al Arab.

I am going to review this hotel as a loyal business customer. I have been staying at this hotel the past year and a half and still to this day the only people who recognise me are the Front Office Manager and the doorman. I have stayed at this about 6 times in a year. My last visit war as recent as November and I returned back in January. No recognition of me a Gold Member and a returning guest for the past year or so.

Now you may be thinking why do I stay here well its simple. Excellent location and value for money. As a business traveller its nice to go somewhere where you are recognised and appreciated. It makes the trip away from your family more easier.

If this hotel can improve their acknowledgement of loyal customers then this would be a perfect hotel for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Sheikh Zayed Road. These rooms are larger.

Stayed another 2 nights here and still very good.
Service is good and with the corporate rate its good value.
Very accessible from the airport via the Metro at Sharaf DG and the Mall of the Emirates is a short walk.
Breakfast nice with freshly cooked eggs always a plus.

Only slight comment - Sky News UK would be nice on the TV choice
