very exclusive this hotel is. the cavalli club inside is a must see. for party goers its amazing with beautiful huge chandeliers and amazing elite crowd and good music,

the pent house was a little disappointing though. could have been much more exclusively done up.

Stayed at the Fairmont for nine nights earlier this month on business. It is a great location for the exhibition centre and the metro. There are two great restaurants, the exchange grill and spectrum on one. Staff are okay, but not up to other 5 star hotels. The only pools are located outside, which is great when he sun is shining, however, for a morning swim they are too cold. The large plenty of lifts, however, you soon realise why there are are seats on every floor, you spend lots of time waiting for them. My biggest compliant is the number of working girls allowed in the bar, you cannot find a seat and they hassle you all the time, even when you ask the bar staff or security to move on.

I have stayed at Fairmont for the past 3 years on my return trip from my holidays. Excellent service, quiet and very comfortable. Sports bar in the lobby is second to none, The Cigar Bar is a nice lounge to wind down the night with a few cocktails. Room service is fast and accurate. I look forward to my next stay at The Fairmont Dubai.

Room Tip: If you plan on visiting the Cigar Bar it is required you have slacks and a collared shirt, I highly...

We stayed for eight nights in their one bedroom suite on a high floor which was very spacious. Excellent service, good food! Not to miss is the Chicken Dum Biryani. The buffet breakfast has a good spread of Arabic food. Close to the Dubai Mall only AED 15 taxi fare each way. Airport is also nearby only around AED 35 by taxi.

Our first time to Dubai and always hestitating to book any hotel for fear of making a bad choice. Not only is the hotel in a suberb position midway between the old town and the marina but it is also right by a metro station. You can be anywhere in 20mins ( and ride all day on the metro for £2). Our room was on the 28th floor with floor to ceiling windows looking out over the cityscape. Everything in the room was spot on from the huge bed through to the immaculate bathroom. I failed to realise that the hotel has in fact two pools on the 9th floor, one at the back and one at the front. the architectural of the hotel is just stunning, with the atrium inside stretching from the ground floor up to the ceiling on the 30th floor. My biggest kick was the lifts than ran up the building inside the atrium so you can see the view of the ground floor slip away beneath you as you ascend. There are other hotels but if you stay on the Palm there's the problem of getting to/.from the hotel to the main attractions since the metro on the palm is not connected to the main metro lines. There are hotels in the marina area but again its a long way from the old town
Another plus is the range of close by shops along the main round so if you need anything its right there. Value for money? I am not sure I will ever find a better deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with good views of the main road at the front of the hotel.

My husband and I stayed in fairmont for 6 nights and it was a unique experience. A huge and comfortable bed, great service, two swimming pools, fast elevators and the breakfast just amazing. If someone can afford it, it is certainly recommended. You can feel like a star in this luxurious hotel.

Stayed at the hotel for 7 days and found the room and service excellent. The location if attending a show at the trade center can't be beat. The metro station is directly outside the hotel and you are only 3 stops to the Dubai Mall-largest in world with 1200+ stores. The bar area at the hotel is nice and offers reasonably priced drinks compared to most places and the bar manager seemed to always be there making sure all things were running well. I would say that if you are looking for a romantic spot, then I would look to stay at some other hotels in Dubai, such as the Marina or Madinat.

Room Tip: High floor is better. There is road traffic if facing the convention center.
