I was hesitant about staying here after seeing the bed covers on the website, but the rooms are actually very stylish. The service is excellent, the beds are extremely comfortable. My room had a glass wall to the bathroom and I did not work out how to close the blinds between - fine as I was on my own but may be necessary if sharing as the loo is in the bathroom. There was the usual hairdryer that is designed by sadists - I had to hold in the button the whole time, making my thumb very painful. Why can't hotels realise that those of us with long hair would like a hair dyer with a simple on-off switch? The pool area was lovely, especially the spa pool overlooking the creek, and the pool attendants provided good service. The let down was the eggs at breakfast. The location is very handy for the Dubai Festival Mall and the airport.
