                              Being interconnected to the Festival City Mall and the nice view outside.

                              The Egyptian Managers on the reception and Vallay Parking. They were not freindly at all.

                              Every thing was exellent,the room's,food's and facilitie's.

                              No wifi at room's

                              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.

                              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.

                              All things in the hotel were more that good

                              During the day, there were some noise from people who have some activities outside the hotel and I couldn't sleep well

                              Simply, everything was brilliant

                              It's something minor & had nothing to do with the hotel itself. The outer view dosnt look that good as a construction was going on>

                              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.

                              That you do not need to go anywhere else in Dubai. It has everything you need.

                              They change the price after we book room by Booking. The staff was in bad mood also they forget the smil all the time !!! We book the room with every facilities but we should order every thing we want it. there is no quite on the lobe at all and no separate and private place for the quest and the visitor for wedding hall.

                              The lobby was hot,,

                              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 :(
