This is my 2nd attempt to review this hotel, my first seems not to be within guidelines!
This was a terrible experience due to the service in the hotel.
I changed my flexible rate stay to add an extra night. The hotel therefore changed my rate for every night I stayed.
This resulted in the extra night costing me over $1200!!!!
I tried to discuss with the hotel manager but he/she refused to speak to me.
I have taken it up with IHG centrally (a month ago) and they've asked the management to contact me now 4 times. Still no contact.
I have booked my next 10 day stay next month in another chain despite being an IHG Ambassador member.
Don't use hotel taxis either. Any local run will be 2x the price of hailing a cab and my taxi to the hotel (they organised from airport) was 5x the price of the one I hailed to go back!
Beware female company in the bar. I'll say no more.
There are a lot of other hotels in Dubai, pick one for your own sake.
Lets see if this is pc enough.
PS - otherwise rooms are clean and comfortable.
