My wife and kids (6 & 4) stayed in the hotel in June 2013. We were en route to South Africa, and decided to do a quick stopover in Dubai. I have been to Dubai several times (for business) and have stayed in several areas including Al Barsha (where the hotel is located). I like the locality of Al Barsha, as most of the hotels are within walking distance to the Mall of the Emirates, and the MOE is in turn linked directly to the Dubai metro, which will get you to most parts of the city.
The Suite Novotel is very close to the MOE, and they have "family suites", which can sleep up to 5 people, and they also include two bathrooms (great when everyone is trying to get ready at the same time!). Obviously they cost a little more, however, when comparing to other hotels, where I would have had to book 2 rooms, they are competitive (and slightly cheaper than most similar grade hotels).
The service in the hotel was great. Check in was fairly quick and pleasant. The room was very comfortable and big enough for us not to be tripping over each other. We did not make use of room service, but for our small requests, we were attended to very promptly. I also included breakfast in our booking, and must say the breakfast was great. Definitely better than similar hotels in this class. The service in the restaurant was also very good and the staff were pleasant.
The rooftop pool and area was small, but great for a quick cool off. There is also some PlayStation games near the foyer for those that would have used this. Only downside is that there is no wi fi internet access in the room (only in the lobby area). There is a plug in internet access in the room, and also some computers with access near the reception.
All in all a very pleasant stay and a hotel we will definitely be back at.
