Escape to Dubai!

FANTASTIC view of downtown Dubai, and located right next to a major shopping mall (movie theaters, food court and restaurants,IKEA, major department stores and high end boutiques)and a marina. Very good lap pool. The food in the restaurant was good--I had a dinner and a breakfast buffet while there. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again, and I already recommend it to colleagues here.

USA to Kenya Safari Stopover

We arrived at 6:00 AM, expecting delays getting checked in, but there were none. The room was clean, bright, very quiet and a short 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. The staff bent over backwards trying to satisfy every need. The Big Bus hop-on, hop-off service has a shuttle to one of their normal stopping points. Very pleased, I would definitely stay there again next time.

Great New Year Break

Lovely new hotel, with friendly efficient staff, fantastic rooms. Comfy beds giving a great nights sleep. Pool area enjoyable for a relaxing time overlooking the creek. Overall an ideal location next to Festival City Mall with the Hard Rock Cafe & Jamie's Italian Restaraunt, two of the best close by. The hotels, Belgium Beer Cafe was great for a meal and a few drinks sitting outside under the stars listening to the singer. Overall a fantastic New Year Break.

great hotel, great pool

Rerouted through Dubai due to volcanic ash. Great choice, super pool if you are a lap swimmer. The hotel has an excellent location next to a mall with numerous restaurants and shops. You can also walk outside along the waterfront. Had a great room with a view of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

Excellent Time... Excellent Staff

We arrived at out hotel and needed a late check out. The hotel had no problem extending our checkout free of charge. Also, our luggage was delayed for 4 days and the Concierge staff did an excellent job staying in contact with the airport. The hotel is located between downtown Dubai and the airport. We really enjoyed being away from the city, because the atmosphere at Festival City is very relaxing with great views of the skyline at Sunset. The rest of Dubai is VERY accessible as taxis are cheap. The most we paid was less than $13 US to get to the beach and most places cost less than 8 to get to. The hotel itself is beautiful. There is no free internet in the rooms, but there is free wifi in the lobby as well as by the pool. It was very nice to be connected to the mall at Festival City, because we were able to get cheap breakfasts at some coffee shops and were able to purchase some cheap clothes at the "HyperPanda" while we waited for our luggage to arrive. All in all we really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it!

Excellent Hotel

Great hotel with excellent facilities. Far enough from the city centre to be quiet, however close enough to all main attractions around the city. The pools are shared between the hotel and the Intercontinental Hotel next door. The pools are excellent with plenty of sun loungers. The attendants were very helpful, providing towels and making excellent cocktails. Breakfast was a bit overpriced (110 AED) but the Festival City shopping mall is joined to the Intercontinental hotel, and there are plenty of restraints, cafes, etc there where you can buy breakfast for a lot less.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Ask at reception if you can book a half day tour. This is a bit more expensive (250 AED), however for the price you get a 4hour private tour with guide. We found it excellent as we could ask questions & request to stop at or visit areas of the city that the normal tours miss!
