The location, Apartment upgrade, higher floor, staff, choice to use facilites even at Hilton Hotel across, access to a beautiful private beach and the awesome day and especially night life made the entire experience the best trip of 2012. Arrived in Dubai on the 13th Dec 2012 early morning, was picked up by Hotel bus, on arrival at hotel (7am), receptionist welcome warm and helpful even though we were 6- 8 hours before checkin she offered us safe storage for bags and complimentary breakfast until she could arrange housekeeping to clean up a room. I must note that I requested a 2 bed appartment on a high floor as I researched that there was construction outside or near the buildings at that time...We were given what we asked for and more, A 4 bedroom apartment with lounge, dining and kitchen. I hope I can post pics later to tell show u how WoWed we were. The rest of the ammenities were superb except for a little wait for the lifts...4 lifts servicing 43 floors but if u adventurous, using the service lifts gets you down quicker in peak times. The Beach was amazing, has a beach and curio store in the main hotel that caters for what u left behind, felt like I was on an island except when I turned and back to shore, monstrous tall buildings everywhere that would block out the sun in the late afternoon. Cheapest to rent a car and then use the bus or train to get around than use a Taxi, u can find a rental agency on the ground floor and they will assist with a Gps and international driving license on demand (just read up about if u involved in a fender bender or ask agent). I could go on about Dubai but if u on a budget and want to see as much, locate at the concierge's desk, those little adverts about things to do, and u will find massive discounts offered up to 30% off. The Burj Dubai is a must and booking online and in advance is a must must must. I managed to get an all day VIP pass because of some glitch on their side. Enjoy the Night Life as the walk especially from outside the Hilton Residences is just great, Good Food places, beautiful people, beautiful cars and a great atmosphere. Dubai is my stopover oasis on all my travels from now onwards.
