The tone was set for my visit to this hotel when we pulled up at the grand main complete with its impressive cascading water feature to be met and greeted by a team of helpful bellhops, opening our vehicle doors, welcoming us and assisting with our luggage. We then proceeded into to reception in the vast and spectacular lobby/atrium decked out in gold and marble, to check in.
We were early so our belongings were secured in the left luggage to be forwarded to our rooms, the rooms were well worth the wait, even the room key was special with a holographic prancing horse logo displayed when it was inserted, my room was light an airy and a very substantial size, with floor to ceiling windows leading on to a large balcony affording a panoramic vista across the racecourse. Other nice touches were the expresso machine, the remote controlled curtains, the large luxurious bathroom, and the huge, comfortable bed affording a very good nights sleep. The room was extremely well appointed, with a high end contemporary decor.
I spent most of my time out during my stay at The Meydan with the only meal I ate there being breakfast, which was a fine array of food, with enough choice and variety to satisfy any palate, as well as the choice of eating al fresco on the terrace if you wished. I did make use of the bar leading on to the terrace in the evening on several occasions to meet my colleagues and relax after work or prior to going out, great service but quite expensive, and the only other facility I used was the Infinity pool on the roof terrace which was rather nice with an unparalled view from the roof.
To summarise this is a luxurious and sumptious 5 star hotel which is away, from the hustle and bustle of downtown Dubai, nothwithstanding taxi's are plentiful and the hotel also supply a shuttle bus to the shopping Malls as well as to their Beach Club at Jumeirah, I would love to stay there again and it was definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
