Jumeirah, United Arab Emirates
Reviewed 12 March 2016 via mobile

Once we got over the unpleasant check-in process, our stay was first class. The Club lounge was fantastic. A lady called Mariam exemplified customer centricity. The breakfasts were amazing: fresh breads, saj, manakish & kunafa. Yummy! The concierge was also very helpful in advising us of sightseeing. We look forward to returning soon.

This must be the best hotel I've stayed in. It's not just the facilities (though they were top notch – huge quiet room overlooking the sea, gorgeous bed and bathroom, every single luxury you could possibly want and more, super-fast open internet) and not just the location (steps from Zaytouna Bay and the sea, close to Hamra and Downtown). Every...

Stayed here for 4 nights recently and I think this is a really nice hotel. I got a city view room which doesn’t have a great view although it is interesting (check out the history of the area). Nice, big, comfy bed with plenty of space in the room for luggage. Good sized bathroom with plenty of hot water for...

Stayed here two nights as Spire Elite. Cashed in 25,000 points plus $40 USD per night. Was upgraded two levels to sea-view deluxe room. Mark at the front desk was especially helpful in resolving a reservation mistake I had made. Being February, the outdoor pool was closed, but I enjoyed the indoor pool, spa, and gym a lot. No lap...

One of the best in Beirut. I thought Dubai hotels spoiled me, but glad to see my home city also has a hotel of such (if not higher) standards. Couldn't find anything negative The breakfast buffet, bed, location, toilet, toiletries, room service were all very good. Would stay again and recommend to others
