I spent three nights at the CP Dubai during a business trip in May 2007.

First of all the level of service was very high, especially when compared to similar hotels in Europe.
Pick-up at the airport worked smoothly, so did the arrival at the hotel, surrounded by hotel staff helping with bags, check-in, etc.

The room was nice, big bathroom in dark stone (marble?), fresh fruit delivered daily and well-equipped mini-bar.
The only downside to the room was the slight dated feel of the furniture, though spotless.
One warning for the lifts though, it takes forever to get to your floor, so make sure you don't forget something before you leave your room...

Breakfeast was ok but not really the standard I was hoping for. A lot of fresh fruits though and good selection of freshly squeezed juices.

The CP Dubai is a nice, clean hotel with a good level of quality and services.
Beeing a bit dated I would probably choose another hotel next time, not because I was disappointed but rather to experience the contemporary style of Dubai's prime hotels.

The CP is a really convivial and energetic old-style hotel! Loud and a little bit brash but full of life. First impressions aren't great, as the entrance and lobby don't amount to much. The bright neon archway/drop-off point is tight and poky. If you're on foot, watch you don't get swiped by passing traffic on the service lane (and that's before you even get to Sheikh Zayed road itself). A hot and rather messy introduction to the hotel. You then climb aboard the world's longest escalator and finally reach check-in. Next, such a large hotel is poorly served with just 3 lifts and going up and down was less than swift. But soon the hotel reveals its charms. Business floor rooms were really outstanding, a nice surprise, very spacious with a comfy sofa area. Nice exec lounge, again spacious. Excellent happy hour snacks, though slightly average breakfast. Internet swift, better than average. Room service food was first class, nice selection, fresh grilled hammour, mezze, all sorts of nice treats. Back downstairs the fun begins once again, with a real wealth of bars, restaurants and cafes. Excellent Lebanese lunch buffet and also the Steak House stood out in particular. Pub is great fun, watching young Emiratis going crazy to the televised football. The CP is a bit of an 80's throwback and far from the last word in style. It has soul though, and more than a hotel, it's a complete social hub. Good local alternative to Emirates Towers. Enjoy.

This is an execllent hotel, specially for those who are going to a congress or exhibition... it is just opposite of the world trade center. The rooms are spacious, clean & tidy, however, they could benefit from renovation

With hotels in Dubai becoming increasingly more expensive, it's refreshing to find a hotel in a good location, with unpretentious staff, good quality accomodation and all at a good value price.

The Crowne Plaza is an international standard business hotel with all the facilities you'd expect of a 4 star city hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful (although the concierge was a bit clueless), and our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. There are loads of reasonably priced places to eat and drink within the hotel, including a couple of bars, coffee shop and an Italian restaurant. The hotel is also right above a shopping mall, which whilst being nothing inspiring contains basic services such as more restaurants, a supermarket, pharmacy and bank. The hotel also has decent lesiure facilities, including an outdoor pool and jacuzzi overlooking the Emirates Towers and Sheikh Zayed road, and a well equipped gym, with steam and massage rooms.

The best thing about this hotel however is its location - situated at the Creek end of Sheikh Zayed road, it is literally in the centre of everything. Plentiful taxis line up outside the hotel and can get you to most places in Dubai within 15 minutes, including the Creek, Bur Dubai, Deira, Jumeirah Beach and the Airport. It is also ideally placed for access to Dubai's malls, and in 10 minutes you can be at the Mall of the Emirates (with a free shuttle bus), City Centre Mall, Mercato Mall, Wafi City and many others besides.

It's not ideally placed for Dubai's beaches, and whilst there is a free shuttle bus to its sister hotel on the beach, that is a 40 minute bus ride away in Sharjah, and it only goes once a day. However, if you are looking for a comfortable central hotel with all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay in Dubai, you can't go much wrong with the Crowne Plaza, and I would likely stay here again.
