We had a 3 day stopover to Dubai on our way to Africa and were very impressed with the Fairmont Dubai and Dubai itself.
We were lucky and had a connection with Fairmont, and was given a special rate while staying at the Fairmont Dubai on the gold floor. The Gold floor offered all those little extras that made the jet lag from North America melt away. It offered free drinks (all varieties), an amazing breakfast and evening canapes. The breakfast included eggs cooked how you liked, veal sausages, wide variety of fresh and dried fruits, waffles, turkey bacon, beans, granola, yogarts, freshly squeezed juices etc. The canapes in the evening were enough for a full meal and included sushi, lobster, crab, calamari, cheese, salads and other meats. We certainly saved a lot of money from eating out, by staying in and having substantial meals just on the canapes.
If you do choose to stay on the Gold Floor, take advantage of the free drinks as they are non transferable and exceptionally expensive elsewhere in the hotel ie. pool. We paid over 20 USD for a single mojito at the pool!
The rooms were clean, modern and spacious. We enjoyed the tub and wall shower in the bathroom. The concierge was very helpful with anything we needed. They even tracked us down during our dinner drinks to let us know that our tour company had cancelled our tour the next day, and arranged a new one for us. All of the staff were excellent.
The pool does have very strict hours which is unfortunate because the sunrise from the pool area is quite beautiful. Regardless, pool staff were friendly and we were provided with towels and bottled water as soon as we walked in.
For a cheaper meal in Dubai, there is a fantastic Lebanese restaurant about 4 blocks down the street.
