If you're staying in Dubai, you must stay at the Palace. It has become our benchmark for all hotels and sadly, not many live up to it. Location, location, location, opposite Dubai Mall, view of the Burg Kalifa from our balcony as well as overlooking the famous light and music fountain show. The staff were amazing professional, friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly upgraded to a suite which was incredible. The bed was to die for, almost as good as our own at home. The bathroom was amazing - huge deep bath, massive shower and seperate toilet along with beautiful toiletries. When arriving at the hotel the entrance really made you think you were staying at a true palace, beautiful with pools, palm trees etc. After a very late arrival we ordered room service as the restaurants were closed. We had the best tasting burgers ever (huge). with the best presentation of burgers ever. We also decided on room service breakfast the next day after a much needed sleep in and it was delivered promptly,and the table laid for us with lovely hot food. My only complaint was it was far too hot to sit outside on the balcony for too long but then, it is the desert.
