Stayed here on one of my husband's work trips so were given a Junior Suite. Checked in on 33rd floor and had benefits such as free internet service, breakfast, snacks and evening drinks included. Had a great time!
Unique Quality: Two pools - they have to be used at different times of the day due to the shade coverage as the pools are on high floors of the hotel. No beach. Good gym and nice restaurants. Friendly staff.
excellent service, luxurious rooms, all the facilities in the rooms are good i must say. i have stayed around 3-4 times at this hotel now and i am satisfied. restaurants, bars and healthclub facilities are perfect.
Directions: sheikh zayed road, good location if you need quick access to exhibition centre
I have never stayed in a 5 star hotel like the Fairmont. as a matter of fact, most expats love the Fairmont. the Willow Stresam SPA is one of the best in the middle east. The pool is something else. The golden suites are indescribable. It is just that you can't have enough. The lounge has a greeeeeeeat view. Getting a Golden room/suite entitles you a free access to the lounge, free drinks, free breakfast (great), free day snack, and a free night snack. The facilities are great. Service is even better. I remember asking for a sport channel and got it within a few hours with a message on my suite TV. The suite office is very elegant. A printer/ fax machine, stationary and all you want.
Directions: Located on Shaikh Zaid road in Bar Dubai near the Emirate Towers. very easy to find
The Fairmont, part of the Canadian chain of the same name, is a stunner: this 35-story tower was inspired by the wind-towers of the Gulf and at night is positively glittering with spotlights that change color over time thereby lending the building a certain flavor of Las Vegas or Disney World. Inside it's all glass, marble, wood, fountains, and brushed stainless steel.
There are 11 restaurants, a state-of-the-art business center, world-class spa, and two mosaiked pools. Service was impeccable.
Unique Quality: The most amazing thing about the place was free Internet access in your room via a webtv-like computer system connected to a 25" TV. With an ASDL line, it was lightening fast.
Note: Check the Internet for a "deal." During certain times of the year rates can be as low as $100 for a double, which was the rate we got via a travel agent here in Muscat. We could have reserved it via www.asiatravel.com for just a trifle more. Watch out for the Dubai Shopping Festival, however, because the rates soar at that time.
Directions: Catty-corner opposite the World Trade Center.
