I've been going to Dubai for ten years almost monthly and used to stay in a different hotel until it changed management and subsequently all the staff too, I chose Raffles because of its excellent location in the centre of the city close to the airport. I was blown away with my first stay. From then on I knew that I would stay at Raffles forever when I come to Dubai.
The staff here have outperformed every other hotel I have ever stayed in across 45 different countries. The biggest difference is that they listen to their guests and remember. I couldn't believe how they would remember my coffee or fruit preferences and pick up on subtle things I said about what I liked and didn't like. This hotel is at the cutting edge of hospitality down to the carefully selected and highly trained staff.
Of course behind the amazing staff is a wonderful hotel with no expense spared in the decor and facilities, some of the largest rooms in Dubai and a certain decadence that new hotels totally lack.
Raffles Dubai is one very impressive package that is exemplary in a city with such strong hotel competition. But someone has to be number one and the staff here wanted it more than any where else which is evident in their sincere hard work.
A stay here will be more than memorable.
