I goto Dubai quite a few times a year, it was the first time i stayed at The Address although i have always stayed in the Dubai Marina area. The hotel is right next to the new Dubai Marina Mall - has most things you need but is no where near as large as the Dubai or Emirates mall. The cinema within the mall is due to open later in July 2010.
The hotel is very new and quite grand. I was lucky enough to get upgraded to a Premier Suite room - this was great it was very, very large with seperate large bedroom with a large lounge area, balcony and a good sized bathroom. The hotel has a great swimming pool - very large infinity pool. The sun bathing area is well equiped with nice beds and sun loungers but in the winter months I would imagine that it will get very crowded as the area is quite small. The buffet restaurant is OK, average food but a good choice. The Rive Gauche French restaurant was great, really good food BUT afterwards i had an upset stomach.......
The service from the front desk when checking in was superb and generally there was good service.
BUT compared to the Grosvenor House Hotel the hotel does not meet their very high service levels and excellent staff or the food options or the great attention to detail. However, the rooms at the Address are more modern and larger.
I would go back but the GHH does win by a big way.
I give GHH 9/10
The Address is a 7.5/10 - but the score may have been lower if i did not get the upgraded room
