The hotel experience was average. Room service and the hotel staff was nice and very friendly. The bathrooms are average and could use some upgrade. It is 15 min from the airport.
Overall I would give 3 stars.

Short drive from hotel
If you like gold Jewelery then Gold Souk is a good area. Make sure you bargain!
If you love the endless thumping of techno music, this is the place for you. This Holiday Inn has 2 disco's on the 1st floor both trying to out volume each other with base. Fortunately they only play until 3:30am and will shake the glasses off the
shelf on any floor below 6. If you're not into techno blasting you can stay on floor 6 otherwise know as cigarette alley my room smelled like a cigarette campfire but at least it was quiet. If you're here for business this is a great place to send a competitors.

Visit the down town area. First day at hotel down stairs bar on ground floor bar ran out of CARLING beer, it was stated that more would be put on Tap. for the 1 1/2 days I was there no one completed that task but offered beer budwiser and Heniken
in which I don't drink. They promised but did not produce. I don't like to go out and drink. They will not pick you up from the airport and when asked to be dropped off it cost 35 AED dollars which is the same as a taxi why have the program. I have stayed at the crownze plaza more than 18 times but wanted to give this hotel a chance, this was my 2nd time staying at this specific hotel. The staff is very good and are more than willing to assist. I requested an american plug for my computer around 10 am and had to call again around 1600 because no one followed up on my request. Don't think I will be staying there again. Breakfast is awesome for the amount you pay.
