This is one of the best hotels in Dubai. I have visited this hotel may times. The rooms are super with modern furniture. The one bedroom suite is amazing. The first thing you notice when you enter the room is the extra ordinary bathroom. Ask for the top floor rooms if available. On top of the great rooms, the restaurants...

Had a great one bed suite, views were off the building works (not the hotels fault) but dampened the experience!! Service very good, clean comfortable and food was faultless - pool area was equally pleasant. Location for my needs near airport but too far out for downtown.

In town for business and staying here helped make it even more productive. Great modern room with perfectly controllable AC for great sleep. Awesome breakfast buffet. There is construction on the mall but I did not hear any noise. There were fewer restaurants in the mall due to the construction but why leave the hotel?
