My husband and I stayed at the Carlton Tower Hotel from Feb 21st through Feb 28th. After researching the many hotels in Dubai and various locations, I knew I wanted to stay near Dubai Creek. With the option of Creek View rooms, and location, I decided on this hotel…and it was a great decision.
The Staff – Very friendly. Every day we were met with warm smiles and greetings. The doormen did their job to perfection and were always inviting when leaving and returning to the hotel. If we needed a taxi, they would flag one down for us and opened every car door us. The maid service was always quick to supply clean towels and tidy up our room daily. The coordinator at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us with booking a Boat Dinner Tour and Desert Excursion (which I highly recommend). We didn’t come across anyone who didn’t have a smile on their face.
The Hotel – Very Clean and Inviting. We booked a King Bed room with a Creek View, which was very clean and cozy. The view was perfect! The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on and the pillows were not your ordinary hotel pillows…they were better than what I use at home (plus, we had 4 pillows…not just the normal 2 that is usually provided in other hotels). We did not buy the Breakfast package, but did pay for it a couple mornings. It is your normal buffet style breakfast with a variety of options to choose from including fruits, breads and pastries, cereal, vegetables, juice and coffee…not extravagant, but still good. The room service is 24 hours a day and a very good choice if you’re wanting to stay in. They deliver good size portions and variety of food, desserts and drinks at a reasonable price. We did not use the pool; however, it looked clean well kept. There is also a poolside bar, to which you can sit outside and enjoy a relaxing evening. The hotel also has a restaurant and night club on one of the upper floors, along with a lounge in the lobby. The internet was fast and reliable, both in our room and in the lobby. The hotel does not have an ATM, but there is one located in the next building over.
Location – Perfect! The hotel is right along Dubai Creek which offers an amazing view of the city day and night. You can catch a taxi just outside the hotel lobby, or walk about 3 min to the nearest Metro Station. There are dozens of shops, small restaurants, a grocery store and pharmacy just around the corner, along with your normal fast food places like McDonalds. The Gold Souk is just a 10 min walk from the hotel, along with the Boat Taxis that can transport you across Dubai Creek.
Overall, the decision to stay at the Carlton Tower Hotel was a great one. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Dubai, who is looking for a great location, great service and relaxing stay.
