The Fairmont Dubai
Review – 5 star
We stayed three nights here and loved it. It was a beautiful hotel right in the heart of Dubai and close to everything we wanted to see. The room was beautiful and the view great from the 26th floor. There was construction next door but we couldn’t hear much noise. I’m sure we could have moved if we wanted to. I had a facial at the spa and it was very nice. The staff there treat you well. The sunset pool had the nicest design on it and I loved the lighting and ambience at night. We had lunch in the exchange grill and it was superb. We experienced Spectrum on One with in room dining and it was great. Our best experience was with the bell staff. All we had to do is walk out the front door and a cab was there. The bell guy would tell the driver where to take us and give us a Fairmont Dubai card with the cab number written on it. The cab number was in case we had a problem or forgot something in a cab. I used the card to show cab drivers where to take me home. On the second morning, Phillip the bell guy suggested we cab it to the Museum and take a water taxi instead of going straight to the gold souk. It was a fabulous suggestion and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 dirham water taxi ride across the creek. This is an excellent hotel to stay in and we hope to be back.
