This is arguably an older style luxury hotel but delivers on room comfort (although I'd have liked colder aircon to deal with the 40C temps outside!), cleanliness and excellent customer service. From reception where I was offered a fruit juice and could check in a little early (1pm instead of 3), to the porters, free shuttle, and business centre, where you can check in online and print your boarding card, everything runs like clockwork. I liked the business atmosphere although here on a leisure trip - there is a calm and interesting, even somewhat glamorous ambience at all times of day.
There is a Metro station nearby but in the heat you will probably end up taking cabs anyway. Dubai Mall is about a 10 AED ride, and takes 5 minutes. Tip - take the free shuttle there and cab back. There are also regular shuttles to the beach areas but personally I'd recommend staying at a beach hotel if you want a sun and sand holiday and avoid faffing about with transfers.
There are restaurants at various price levels dotted around from the Noodle House to the rather gourmet VU restaurant on the 50th floor. I made the mistake of toddling in without checking the menu/prices and ended up paying about £80 for dinner which is not my usual price range. Excellent cuisine and service though, so maybe better for a special occasion , like the table next to mine....
The room service menu is actually good value for a hotel of this calibre. Overall I'd stay again (at a cooler time of year). The rooms are blissfully quiet and restful, and it's well located in a quiet enclave near Sheik Zhayed Road but handy for some of the key areas like the Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa. The airport was a 10 minute ride (at 7am on a weekday) and cost 24AED with a taxi appearing in seconds as I left the hotel. Hotel standards in Dubai are high and this hotel is one of the best I've stayed in out of many over the years.
