We spent four nights at this wonderful hotel - ideally located close to the Mall of the Emirates and only a short taxi ride to the Jumeira beach. We were upgraded to an executive room which was really well fitted out with the biggest bed we have ever seen............ The only downside was that visitors were allowed to smoke in the Sports Bar and it stank of stale cigarettes. The roof top swimming poll was fantastic as was the roof top bar where the service was good.

I had 3 nights booked using IHG Rewards Points booked in their recent 75% off flash sale. To get this standard of property for 7,500 points per night was a bargain. Getting an Upgraded Executive room at check was an added bonus.
I arrived at this property just after 8.00am after an overnight flight and was delighted they had a room available for me at this very early check in time. It was an Executive room on the front of the property overlooking the Sheikh Zayed Road and the Dubai metro.
I arrived by taxi but the Dubai Metro station is just over 5 minutes walk and has a direct frequent service from Dubai international airport.
The room had a large ceiling to wall window and was spacious and well equiped. I got a coupon for a welcome drink at the bar as an IHG Rewards Platinum member and a basket of fruit on the second night.
There is a small rooftop pool with numerous sun loungers. The friendly staff were eager to help with towels and lounger availability.
There is also a rooftop bar and restaurant overlooking the main road over towards the Burj Al Arab hotel. This was busy and had a great panorama view to the Skyscrapers of Downtown Dubai and Marina area's.
I'm glad i booked this hotel and no complaints.
I would however make travellers who are light sleepers be aware of the noise when the Metro trains go by. It did not bother me but if you are a light sleeper ask for a room away from the front of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front of the property if you are a light sleeper.

We were upgraded to a suite which was fabulous. A huge lounge and office area await with minibar, tea and coffee and a large tv. There was also a separate toilet and sink, as well as a large bathroom with shower, sink and another toilet which was off the good sized bedroom with another tv. Both the lounge and bedroom had large floor to ceiling windows, but not much of view overlooking an unfinished building. However, it was very quiet with no road noise. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable.
Nice roof top pool area and bars, but only about 14 sunbeds and no shade. Great view looking out to the Burj Al Arab and Madinat Souk area.
Great location, with Sharaf metro a 5 min walk and mall of the Emirates a10 min walk, with shopping, restaurants and Ski Slope.
We did not eat breakfast in the hotel, but if on room only there are a couple of supermarkets nearby. We bought cereal, milk and juice and stored in minibar. I will definitely stay here again.
Easy to get to Marina area, Dubai Mall and burj Khalifa and back into old area via Metro.
The gym looked great, but we did not use it. Snacks at lunch by the pool were large so began sharing one between us.

A nice hotel, though some service issues could be a little more refined.
Wrong passport handed back at reception.
Room was large, though the view was very underwhelming.
Room service was quite annoying with checking the mini bar usage after just checking in, then several minutes later, another 'check to see if every thing is ok"? in the room.
An old filled out room service breakfast card was still in the room.
Concierge service was slightly lax in giving local directions.
Outdoor bar on top floor has a nice ambience.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from main road.

Rooms are a little small, but as we were only staying a couple of nights so it was fine. Good price for what you get, though if your a hair dryer user, I'd suggest bring your own as the one in the room was like trying to dry your hair in a "summer breeze"! Very close to the Emirate shopping mall, which was why we chose the hotel. Literally a 7-10 min walk.
