Classic Crowne Plaza feel to this hotel which is situated on the Sheikh Zayed Road. Be warned this is a very busy road but this just adds to the vibrancy of the place. The hotel has what you would expect from a city 5 star. My impression was that the staff are here to serve you and ensure your stay runs smoothly rather than just doing a job in a hotel. The room was large, equivalent to a suite in some European City hotels I've stayed in. The hotel interior is a little on the dark side, mainly because the culture seems to favour brown/dark colours probably to escape the brightness of the outside. If you are a member of the hotel group loyalty scheme you can enjoy a few perks. This depends, as always, on your loyalty level (I got free WiFi, fruit basket, newspaper and drink vouchers). There are a number of eating places within the hotel if you don't want, or haven't time, to venture out. We tried a frantic Italian and a tranquil Japanese on our 2 night stay both were perfectly adequate for our needs on this visit. The breakfast was about £20 per head and the choices were extensive and plentiful. However the breakfast area is perhaps not large enough for the size of hotel and is bounded by a busy corridor so appears like a crowded airport cafeteria - don't expect a peaceful time. Dubai has something for everyone from beach to city, adventure to culture. For me a couple of nights is about right. Dubai is a good consideration if you are heading further afield to Australasia. The hotel is located a short stroll from the Dubai Metro system making it very easy to get about.
We did have one gripe which wasn't really dealt with properly, by the hotel staff, involving noise from the room above. Apologies are simply not enough when you are trying to catch up on some sleep/rest necessary because of long haul flight timings.
Overall though a good hotel - but the management need to remember competition and choice is intense here.
