Awesome room, great staff, great food
We were staying as a +VIP Silver, but i'm not sure with our stay what items were "normal" amenities and what were +VIP. The room was spacious and had a cool automated lighting and curtain set up by the bed. The bathroom was massive too. We were given free mini bar (non alcohol), which did get replenished during our stay. We were also given a welcome platter of nibbles on the day we arrived and an extra amenity of early evening snacks of choice from a trolley brought to the door (if in the room at the right time).
Our deal included the buffet breakfast, which was an awesome selection, but would have been very expensive if paying separately for it. We had one dinner from the onsite restaurant and the food was top notch and was reasonably priced for the quality of the serving, and a small selection of bread was also provided to the table while the meal was being prepared.
We arrived early in the morning and were allowed to wait while the room was prepared, and were then given access to our room by about 9.30am, even though our booking was for that night - we were very grateful for this extra service without additional charge. Check in staff were great!
The hotel provides a daily free shuttle to the Dubai Mall (approx 25 mins away) and also a couple of other places (but not the airport). Taxi to/from the airport should cost between 20 and 30 AED. WiFi was decent signal strength, and we were even able to use it when we first arrived, before we even got our room card.
