Well deserved 5 star - modern and lushly designed room, majestic hotel lobby, great breakfast and most importantly connected with festival city mall, ikea and Hard Rock Cafe - a definite plus point. Very friendly and helpful restaurant staff too. As for the location, just 15-20 minutes from the airport and also nearby Dubai downtown.
