Have been staying regularly with them for the past 18 months. They are a very good business hotel. Staff if efficient, polite but not in a mechanical way. Understand the time pressure when on work. I typically get in early morning and just want to check-in and leave for office. So am always given a choice of whether I want the room right away or they can have the bags send up I can take just walk to the DIFC next door. The rooms are large and have some nice choclates waiting for you. I am not sure if they are only for decoration but I always eat them. The bathroom has glass wall which I find a bit wierd so draw the blind.
Last trip, the air-con would not go above 19C so froze for the nights and wore a sweater to bed both the nights. If this happens again then no more Ritz in the winters.
The bar is quite and nothing much happens in the hotel compared to other hotels in Dubai. This is fine by me but many of my colleagues don't like it. The room service is patchy. Last time I ordered a stake and it had sauce spilled all over the plate, the helping of chips was really small....major irritation, I don't want to run out of chips mid-way through my stake. The stake was not as hot as I expect.
The gym is good. I don't think they have a pool or at least I have not seen it.
Overall a hotel that works well when you have on business in DIFC. Would not be very good for a holiday.
