Dusit Thani Dubai (Dubai, UAE)

5 Case Rating


Location

Right on Sheikh Zayed Road- very close (5 minutes drive) to Burj Khalifa & Dubai Mall. Beach around 5-10 minutes away (by taxi). There is a metro station ‘Financial Centre” about 5-10 minute walk. Great location to be in city centre. Outside of Hotel within walking distance is Johnny Rocket burger restaurants and a lebanese restaurants plus some pharmacies.

Room

Room located on the club level (34) is a suite. Offering a separate bedroom & living room.
The living room is like a reception room, quite small but cosy with some couches & armchairs facing a large TV. There is a marble desk with comfortable office chair accompanied by a phone and coffee/tea making machine- full selection. To the side of the desk was a good media centre of power sockets such as USB, HDMI and multiple power socket- great say for using TV for a presentation.
The ceiling to floor windows offered an excellent view of Burj Khalifa. From this room to the bedroom is a corridor with wardrobes on left side that included a safe, ironing board, drawers, robe and slippers as well as a luggage rack as you enter the bedroom. Opposite is the bathroom.
A nice marble finish that offered both a separate shower cubicle and round bath- with open shutters into bedroom with view of TV. L’Occitane mini full set of amenities were offered alongside dental kits, shavers sets, sewing kits, cotton buds etc..the mini L’Occitane bottles was also generously offered at both the shower and bath areas as well as main sink. Plenty of towels were also offered with a good working shower. The bedroom was very cosy due to large windows and light blinds around the room- as the room was so high, it was cosy lying on the bed and looking out over the horizon of the Dubai Metropolis. The king size bed was nicely decorated with coloured pillows and was quite firm. Each side there were flexi-reading lights as well as lamps, phones and an alarm clock. The room offered a lazy chair/couch, very comfortable with multiple pillows right next to the window that offered a pleasant ocean view in the distance. Next to this a helpful stool and mirror with small make-up type table. A medium sized flat screen TV existed right in front of bed. Did not really look at a channels but appeared full Satellite viewing was available. Lighting overall was good with many lamps and controls by bed, so many plugs around this suite- all international including UK.
The decor was quite boutique Arabic, colourful, warm and cosy – a nice suite for a couple, but also for a solo business traveller like myself, that needs to do a small presentation with a client in the lounge area- thanks to the large reception working desk.

Facilities

Free unsecured WIFI for multiple devices throughout the hotel works well.
The hotel offered full 5 star dining facilities that included a Thai Restaurant, Italian, Buffet, delicatessen, Champagne bar and another bar. I didn’t use any of them so cannot comment. I noticed a boutique shop in reception selling luxury watches and jewellery as well as a hair salon. An ATM was also noticed & believe a business centre exists but did not use it.
On the roof is a outdoor pool, it was quite a good size- straight so good for lengths but not deep so also good for children. There is also an adjoining jacuzzi. Around the pool is plenty of Sun lounging chairs but due to shape of building, sun light is somewhat sparse – probably a good thing but its tough if you like full sunbathing, as the open slitted design of roof means sunlight comes and goes as it moves. There is also a pool bar on this floor. Inside the building on the same floor is an open plan gym with cardio machines surrounding the open central areas- that shows all the floors down below. There was a weights machines noticed as well. The floor I was staying in had a club lounge but I did not have access to this.

Staff

Staff service was excellent but due to limited time of stay, there was overall limited interaction with staff only reception, bell boys, pool staff and Driver. All were vey polite & efficient offering a five star personal service to make you feel special. I have a say a special mention to the Ishaq & Yaser whom accompanied me and drove me to the airport in a nice high tech Audi (Hotel’s premium car service). They were friendly and chatty.
Overall I would definitely stay here again if I happen to be on a business trip in Dubai and need to be close to central area. Its more of a hotel for business in Dubai than pleasure- however saying that found the staff to go beyond the expected service – really personal and nice and better than what you would find at the big brands such as Hilton.
