The Hawthorn seems to be a relatively new hotel with new furnishings. The front desk staff were quite nice, but you have to fill out a registration form although your information is already in their computer. The room was well equipped with a mini-bar, nice linens, large shower, and good bath products. I ordered an iron, at no-charge of course, it was there within fifteen minutes. The lounge called the 49ers was great, good food and around ten a band from Bulgaria started with nice music, although a bit loud. The food was good in the lounge and reasonably priced. The concierge was friendly and assisted me in getting a taxi on the day of my departure flight. All in all, a good hotel for $120 a night. Good price in Dubai, I will be staying there again in October.
