I reviewed this hotel favourably several years ago. I would not have opted to UPDATE my review had it not been for benefit of the TA community on which I rely a lot. It is time to move on.
The property is now old by Dubai standards, appears neglected and misses on essential services that one would expect from a property of such rated caliber. The hallway carpets, guest rooms, elevators, fitness center, pool area are all showing signs of excessive age. Ongoing repairs and upgrades will potentially inconvenience your stay or strain some of the senses.
I recommend that you ask about construction/ renovation in the hotel and in adjacent area before you finalize your booking to ensure that you are up to date on how they may impact your stay. Dubai has many many choices in the immediate area.
PS: The general staff is among the best I have come across.
