After returning from a Fam trip where we stayed at the Crown Plaza Festival City. Even though it was really far out from the main areas such as the beach, the hotel offered a good base for those who may be travelling on a business basis & it's also minutes from the airport.
The rooms were fantastic, after sharing a room to myself i was very spoilt with the large King Size bed, sofa overlooking the creek, there was a TV with acces to channels, games & the internet. Minibar had extorinate prices, as do most hotels in Dubai. A writing table with connections to plug into laptops etc. Beds were turned down every day with chocolates left for you.
Bathrooms were amazing, a big glass window seperated you from the bedroom, with a blind to put down if you were slightly worried. However it is quite amazing that you can go to the toilet and be staring at the largest/tallest buiding in the world (Bur Dubai)
There was a great selection at breakfast, from continental, traditional arabic & full english along with fruits, breads etc.
The pool area was lovely. Beanbags are put out on the grassy area. Whilst we were sat round the pool we were brought fresh fruit & wet towels to cool down with. There's two small pools, a large pool & a jacuzzi bath which over looks the Creek, an amazing sight.
The service was impeccable! Would definitley reccommend. The hotel was linked to the Intercontinental so you could use one anothers facilities. Also the Festival City was attached aswell, a shopping mall & entertainment venue.
Overall would reccommend this hotel however at least 30 minutes from the beaches.
