We are a retired couple who enjoy travel but not the long flights from Australia. We had not been to Dubai before, so decided to use it as a a stop over on our way to and from Europe. We had three nights outbound at the start of May 2012 and then two nights homebound in early July 2012.
The Marriott is just fine, with all the accommodation, facilities, and services that you expect from this international hotel chain.
Perhaps the best thing about the hotel is that it is less than 10 minutes drive to the airport, and that it provides a shuttle bus to the nearby Diera City Mall - where you can spend as much time as you like window shopping and eating in the comfort of airconditioning.
We did a hop-on/off bus tour one day and visited the Dubai Mall (a must see). This enabled us to get a good overall picture of urban Dubai and its major landmarks, including a boat trip accross the river and a walk through some of the 'souks'.
The stop-over worked well for us and was a change from the other Asian stop-over options
