I stayed in this hotel with my friends from Abu Dhabi for a night on my way to a flight early in the morning. It's very practical being in the center and just 5 mins away from the airport. The staff were very helpful on arranging our transport in the morning when the taxi that we book ran late to pick us up. The rooms are surprisingly huge but the hotel can us e refurbishing as everything already looks and smells dated. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
I have been to Le Meridien near Al Garhoud. I liked the swimming pool and healthy gym environment but at the same time there are issues. Issues as in people staring at you which is annoying. Rooms and good, those near the pool give a great soothing and cooling feeling during summer time. Food is good with decent options, the spa is great and overall service is good but can be the best if given some attention. Overall, it is a 3/5 place to go but at the same time it is a good option during summer.
Great hotel, stayed in the art & tech rooms. Not all the arty or techy, but have everything you expect from a good hotel room.
What makes this hotel special, is the vast amount of restaurant and bars/clubs available all within walking distance on the resort. Yallumba bubbly brunch definetley is one of a kind. During the cooler months I would also highly recommend Merdien Terrace, to sit outdoors and enjoy their high standard buffet
Huge rooms, close to the airport
I had a very big room, which I even didn't expect. This what I liked the most. It's very convenient location just opposite the airport. The stuff was attentive. I enjoyed in the swimming pool area. Good impressions. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.
