This hotel is well located if you are working in Dubai, it doesn't take long to get to the main business district, airport or International Trade Centre.
The food is good and the beer no more expensive than anywhere else and there is a good choice. The evening entertainment in the bar is usually singing and not really my taste but there is nothing wrong with it.
The restaurants are good particularly the Indian one.
The rooms are always very clean and spacious and the staff remember regular visitors as for my past two visits I have been upgraded free of charge.
I have returned to the Dhow each January for business for the last five years.
My main only issue with this hotel is the "second bar" most guests use the bar by the main doors but there is another to the rear of the hotel. Without being over the top this bar seems to be full of prostitutes throughout the evening which surprised me in Dubai. I am hoping that when I return in two weeks time this issue will no longer exist.
This issue however has not put me off recommending the hotel and giving it a very good rating.
