Just had three nights here on our way back from the Maldives with the idea of getting a taste of Dubai to see if we'd like to return for a bit longer. We almost certainly will return to Dubai and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
First of all, we checked in and were pleasantly surprised to find we had been upgraded to a creek view room - apparently they believed we were on our honeymoon, but when we informed them there must have been a mistake because we've been married fifteen years, there was no problem they kept our upgrade anyway, and we still even got the celebration cake and red roses in the room! The staff we very efficient and courteous, but not overly formal which you can sometimes get with a hotel in this bracket.
We ate a couple of evenings in the hotel, and would have loved to have tried more of the hotel's restaurants, but there's only so much you can do in three days! Anyhow the food we did have was consistently fresh and delicious. You can eat much cheaper if you go out and about, but I think it is only expected that you have to pay a premium for top restaurant food in top hotels.
Dubai itself is such a stylish city, especially in the developing areas, and this hotel certainly sat comfortably in the company of some of the more famous hotels and landmarks. It's appearance is so impressive, inside and out, you can't help but feel a sense of indulgence just by being there.
Overall a great stay in a great hotel in a great city. What more do you want?!
Just one note on Dubai itself - if you are the type to feel intimidated by being aggressively and relentlessly harrassed by several men simultaneously (the spruikers), it's best to avoid the gold souk - I don't know about the other souks, they may be the same but we were so disturbed by the gold souk experience that we headed straight back to more comfortable territory. Our only negative experience in the city (not counting the airport/customs, but that's another story....)
