I was surprised at how nice a Crowne Plaza property can be! The rooms are nice and modern. The breakfast has a good selection. However it's hard to sit outside to eat since they dont have a designated smoking section so they sit the smokers with the non smokers. The hotel is situated next to a mall and close to the airport so it's a bit far from everything else. After 2 days I checked into the Marriott Marquis property (see my other review) and I recommend that property if you are looking for a place to stay in Dubai as the rate was cheaper and the hotel was much much better.
