    Easy access to downtown Dubai

    Inflated rating and pricing. I could never describe this as a 5 star hotel, perhaps 4 at a pinch but more a solid 3. The room had a very peculiar and impractical layout, very poor use of space. The bathroom had limited privacy. Overall the hotel appears tired and shabby, in need of a facelift and refurbishment. The staff require training in emergency management as they simply went blank in the face of a mechanical lift failure with potential for medical situation.

    Very good

    Good location. Room was large and well organized. Bed was comfortable. Switches in right locations. Bathroom innovative in design; large and with large shower. Good Wifi. Excellent elevator service; 2 banks of 4 to whisk you up and down.

    Executive upgrade for $100 per night including happy hour and Wifi not good value unless you plan a meal at happy hour. Room was 22nd floor (2226) and billed as "Creek View". Creek view it was, but also directly across from a flashing aircraft warning light a stone's throw away; strobing high intensity yellow during day and flashing red at night. Creek view also obstructed by dirty windows. Could not figure out how to activate tv, granted that my efforts were half hearted.

    Fabulous

    Close to a shopping mall - nearby to he airport

    The hotel does a fire alarm test in a monthly bases according to what the staff told me after I complained. My bad luck I was in the room when the alarm went on without knowing beforehand that it was a test fire alarm. My family and kids got scared and we all panicked. What I truly believe is that the hotel doesn't respect hotel guests.

    Fabulous

    Not driving my car for 2days!! I can live with that since all what I need is within awalking distance. The mall is connected to the hotel, nice out door seating and a walk way along a canal.

    No beach :(
