To be honest, I was expecting the worst after reading some of the reviews here on TA, but I couldn't have been happier on my stay.
I had stayed the previous two nights at the InterContinental Festival City but they were full for the third night as was the Crowne Plaza hotel next to the IC. I had been to couple of other hotels in Deira before so I knew the area quite well.
I was really surprised that they had already processed the upgrade to the club floor, arranged some fruits and a welcome note due to making the booking in less than two hours before of my arrival.
The club lounge was not open yet, but all the club level benefits were provided. In the evening par the lobby bar is cordoned off for a "club" where they had some finger foods and drinks available complimentary for club level guests. The breakfast was provided at the Spice Island restaurant that was super busy on Friday morning and the service bit lacking.
The renovated room was very nice and very un-Crowne Plaza like. It could have been Marriott, Sheraton or any of the "big" brands. I loved the fact that they had Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom.
I had bit of a challenge with the concierge because I asked them to call Emirates on my behalf and arrange a pick up that night from a different hotel. My Emirates ticket included a complimentary pick up. This took four/five phone calls.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and I certainly will/
