I stayed here in March 2011. It was my first hotel stay in Dubai. Since then I have tried many different hotels in Dubai. None of the other hotels matched my first impression of the Taj Palace. So in September I booked a room on the club floor. I was so disappointed. The hotel is in need of renovation. The wallpaper is peeling, the furniture looks old, and the room does not have a DVD player. In addition, the food served on the club food has gone down in quality. I was the first person there for high tea. The food was already cold and soggy. Same next day. The food in the restaurant for breakfast was not much better. The location of the TAJ is good. It is about 15 minutes from the airport. You can walk to several local restaurants in the area. It is also located near City Center mall for us common people. The mall is a short taxi ride. On the second floor is a nice supermarket. It is like a Super Wal-Mart a very well-stocked grocery store and department store. The mall has a nice mixture of stores.
On a positive note for the Taj, the staff is still very friendly and accommodating. Out of all of the hotels I have booked in Dubai, this staff rates the top.
