Phoenicia's location is very convenient. It's a walking to Zaintuney Bay, corniche and Solidere downtown (watch out for the cars when crossing the street!). It's also near most business offices and, therefore, one doesn't have to suffer through Beirut's traffic.
Room is comfortable. Because we booked late, we couldn't get the king size bed, no smoking room we requested. The receptionist instead arranged to combine the double beds in a no smoking room in the club floor. That worked well for us.
The hotel has a lot of pluses. However, smoking in the public areas (common in Lebanon and the region) and the pricey breakfast are a turn-off. Other than those, it would have been perfect.
