I have stayed at the Hilton (Dubai creek) on 3 occasions so far, the latest being in July, 2010. One of my stays was fantastic, the other two were good. The location of the hotel is excellent - it is close to shopping, nightlife and restaurants. Staff is very good and helpful and checkin and checkout were fast.
Rooms are very good and they have an excellent view of Dubai creek - with wide panoramic views. If you like the ultra modern type hotel room, you'll love this one. Breakfast is good and is extra (unless you have status with Hilton) - they have a restaurant on the ground floor (with the English chef Gordon Ramsey) and a nightclub to boot. The nightclub is not very good and you can do better by going to the Hyatt, Fairmont or the Moscow hotel. Getting a taxi from the hotel can be a problem (especially on weekends) as it is not on the main street. The hotel tries to push their private cabs on you (claiming the rate is the same as that of Dubai taxi) - IT IS NOT. Always take the Dubai taxi otherwise you'll be paying about 100% more. I've downgraded the stars I've given this hotel for this reason alone - Hilton should be doing better.
In conclusion, I would recommend this hotel - but watch out for the private taxi thing!!More
