The staff is extremely friendly. Each staff person I came in contact with Eslam,George, Ibrahim, and Rick were professional and catered to us very well. This was my second time at the hotel and I'll be back again next time in Dubai.

Only when asked for a room with two beds, but I did not find was giving me an extra bed, but not in the level of welfare of the hotel! Blurted was excellent and thank you

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.

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!

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.

very nice hotel and very good location & expert staff.

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.
