“Service with a smile”
Reviewed January 20, 2009

The hotel had outstanding service. The staff will serve with a constant smile on their faces no matter the request no matter the time you make that request in.
We where there in Christmas eve and the hotel sent a complementary gourmet cake to our room.
The location is superb being close to Burj Dubai, Dubai Mall and Sheik Zayed road.
The rooms were of adequate size and were artistically decorated. The Breakfast was adequate.
Overall an enjoyable experience and an outstanding value for money.

We were extremely impressed with the level of service at this hotel. The entire staff, from the front desk to the concierge to the business center to the housekeeping, were very warm, courteous, and helpful.

The hotel itself is very comfortable, clean, and luxurious. I absolutely loved the open layout of the room & bathroom.

Free internet in the business center was a wonderful perk.

If we ever go back to Dubai, we're definitely staying here again.

Words can't explain my experience with this hotel. my flight arrived midnight, and the driver was very friendly, when i arrived the hotel, the front office stuff were warm and friendly, while i was checking i was offered fresh orange juice and warm towel. i was very impressed the interior design of the hotel. I felt like i was in 5-star hotel. I do travel for a living and spend alot of nights in hotels and this hotel is by far one of the best. Every staff seemed to really care the need of every customer, This was my first visit to Dubai and the staff are very knowledgeable of the city , as they help me to point to my destination. from the front desk to the GM (John Aritho) was very friendly and really showed me they cared about me.

The room was clean and one of the best bed/shower i have seen. I was also impressed the free Internet service. This hotel is in a good location (close to Dubai Mall) and very good neighborhood

The restaurant was really good, i had breakfast and dinner and i really enjoyed the food and the service. I would highly recommend this hotel to ANYONE.

I want to really thank the staff for making me feel like i was home. I look forward staying there on my return to Dubai.
