If you've come to Dubai for shopping and leisure, this is the perfect hotel. It's directly connected to the Mall of the Emirates which has hundreds of shops and the famous indoor ski hill.
It's a 4 star hotel not 5, but I really thought everything was perfect. The room was a good size and had a modern style. The air-con kept the room very comfortable and I slept great. Whenever they cleaned the room they left fresh flowers in the bathroom which was a nice touch.
The rooftop swimming pool was heavenly in the heat, and I think they actually refrigerate the water because it was a lot cooler than the air.
There's a metro station in the mall too, so if you don't have too much luggage you can get here by train and reduce your dependency on taxis. I'll definitely be staying here again.
