My 3rd and last night at The Oberoi. Travelled here with my two kids. Originally they refused to accommodate three in there deluxe room, but after few emails back and forth, they agreed
without any extra charge.
At the checkin I was surprised to find that I've been upgraded to a room with a fairy good view of the Burg Khalifa. The room was very spacious with a desk, coffee table and a couch apart from the other amenities. We had 5 different pillows each one with a description, a first for me. The Nespresso machine made sure we had a great cup of coffee every morning. The bathroom was to die for. My kids enjoyed bubble baths in the very modern extra large tub everyday. All glass enclosures with motorized blinds with dual sinks were super luxurious.
The staff, mostly of Indian origin, known for their hospitality enhanced that fact without a doubt.
Would go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one.
The shuttle to the mall was a great help since there were no taxis around. Though the Metro was close by, we couldn't walk since the temps were in the 100s. You also have to cross major stress, that are not meant for pedestrians.
There's nothing really of walking distance, but the Dubai Mall is less than 10 mins by the shuttle. Even the vehicle they have for the shuttle is a brand new super luxury Mercedes Benz van.
My only complain is the cost of the breakfast which was around $32 per person. A buffet mainly serving Indian and Arabic dishes. Not worth more than $20. Unfortunately there are no other restaurants nearby you can just walk to.
14 meg down and 15 meg up free wi-fi speed are the fastest I have ever tested in a hotel room.
The hotel does not encourage individual tipping. A lump sum left at checkout for everyone to share is what they recommend.
My heartfelt thanks to Mr. Bizid, Ms. Shimomi, Ms. Singhal and the rest of the crew.
