Loved this hotel so much we extended our stay from 3 nights to 5. The staff were really great and helpful, the buffet breakfast and dinner are amazing, and the pool very nice and well-kept. The rooms were fairly big and nice as well.
The hotel is very conveniently located in the middle of the City and across from the Dubai Mall--just a 5-10 minute walk, Burj Khalifa (the tall tower of Mission Impossible fame) and very close to the Dubai fountains that are choreographed with music for shows every 30 minutes. Dubai Mall is huge--third largest in the world they say now--with lots of options for shopping and eating, plus a really cool huge waterfall inside as well as an amazing aquarium. If you're looking for a cocktail, check the great bar at The Address looking out on the fountains, the Karma Cafe (from creators of Buddha Bar), or if you're really brave--talk your way to Atmosphere on the 123rd floor of Burj Khalifa. Word of warning though: dress code for men is closed toed shoes (no exceptions) and often long-sleeved shirts.
