“1 night - Feb 2012”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I stayed for one night during Feb before a flight back to the UK. The hotel is obviously well placed for the airport and is obviously a very nice hotel. I took an expedia rate not including breakfast in a standard room. Whilst the hotel, room & staff were all very good there were a few disappointing things. Inernet access was an additional cost and was quite expensive also. When smaller cheaper hotels can give fast and free WiFi why can't the bigger and more expensive hotels? I guess I got a bit unlucky as there was a small party going on in one of the rooms underneath which kept me awake until the early hours. Then ( I guess as a result of the fact that it's an airport hotel) people stated moving around from about 5 AM. So not the most restful nights' sleep. The other thing that bothered me was the "hotel cars" which I felt were basically a bit of a con. They had a few nice cars (big BMW & Lexus) which they try to encourage you in to and then charge you twice the price of a perfectly good taxi. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining because I realise that all of these things happen in the world of big hotels but they can be avoided. All in all it's a very good hotel but there were a few small things that let it down in my opinion.

I stay in Dubai around 8-10 days a month so have been in most hotels here and in general they're good if not very good. This is my first time at the Meridien: per night room rate for 5 night stay is 2300 UAE Dirhams ( around GB£420 or US$650 ) with no breakfast! I'm in a Royal Club room that is 'tired' and has not seen paint in years - not the cleanest and the non-smoking rooms corridor reeked of smoke.To turn around in the 'compact' bathroom requires care! When I asked the receptionist and duty manager if this was value for money all I got was a " there's a trade exhibition on and that's our rate" and " For an extra 200 Dirhams we can give you breakfast!" Duty manager had no freedom to act on anything - opportunity to demonstrate some customer service was body-swerved. As an aside I've also noted in general the staff are OK but very subdued and dour compared to most hotels here - must be the managment style they exprience if the duty manger was anything to go by. So for regular users the rate depends on how busy they are and how much they can screw you for. I run restaurants so perhaps I should change the menu prices as our tables fill up! I just don't get it. So I'm still there for another night so wish me luck.

Room Tip: Call the Crowne Plaza or Intercontinental at Festival City nearby - cheaper and 10 times better serv...

Stayed 4 nights at Le Meridien Dubai, next to the airport, which we booked as friends had stayed before and given good review.
From checkin to checkout the service recieved was fantastic. Courtesey calls to check on our stay, complimentary water and fruit basket in room. Superb Gym and nice pools. Room was cleaned to high standard. We had a car so took advantage of the excellent valet parking service. Definately reccomend this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for Royal Club

I was pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail in the architecture as well as the staff. Le Meridien staff go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. The hotel is modern, clean and well laid out but still has a certain old world charm. It is not a brass and glass tower with no character, it exudes charm, serenity and luxury.
