Excellent hotel to stay in Abu Dhabi. I come a lot in the city and I can assume that this place is definitely one of the best locations to stay. Great view on sheikh zayed mosque! Also friendly staff and surounded in a luxury hotel. Worth the money!

The experience was pleasant. We checked in a day prior to Eid. The hotel staff was friendly. The property is great. We recieved an upgrade on room.
I felt the breakfast vegetarian options were limited. And on the day of check out which was at 12 pm, we were given 3 reminders.

I have been to the hotel many times for many different reasons. I love this hotel because of the location, staff, facilities and restaurants. The views from the higher floors of the hotel our amazing as you can see the Grand Mosque. My favourite restaurant in Abu Dhabi is Frankies because its great value for money and the staff always do there best to meet your needs. I actually got engaged outside of this hotel on the beach front during sunset. Must vist if you are travelling to Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor facing Mosque

The hotel seems average from the approach as the rear area of the building isn't so impressive, but once you are inside this becomes insignificant. The general feel of the hotel is smart. There is a pleasant array of art around the place and the rooms spacious with an impressive view of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (that isn't really done justice in the various pictures I've seen, it looks better in real life). The beds are very comfortable and in room dining was excellent, even very late at night with an extensive selection despite the hour. The lighting is beyond poor in the room at night, even when all lamps and bulbs were switched on, but on the other hand the blackout curtains are exceptionally efficient- it felt like midnight at midday when they were closed. The food at the Marco Pierre White restaurant was good and I enjoyed the pool bar as well as the beach, though didn't enjoy the seawater/seabed as others have highlighted in previous reviews. Cocktail barmen at in-pool bar were experienced and accepted off-menu requests knowledgeably and without a fuss. The health club facilities were very good and there was a fair selection of machines and a nice amount of space for a hotel gym. The staff were more than helpful and after leaving and realising I had lost some valuable jewellery Mr Siddiq Butt of Security was extremely efficient in assisting me and I felt reassured that he and the staff were going the extra mile to help me find the items (which have since been found). Would not hesitate to return for a short stay as the price is reasonable and the facilities are good, though not sure I would book for more than a long weekend and I wouldn't like to have reservations and have to rush through check-in or check-out as that is a fairly slow process. On a more positive note, the valet service arranged the car within minutes and when we ordered some ice to the room this was not only seen to in a refreshingly speedy fashion, but two separate members of staff saw to the request so we even ended up with double!

Room Tip: I believe low number rooms e.g. 301, 302... would have been closer to pool & health club end than I was in 357 (though was fine for me)

This is one of my favorite hotel rooms space wise
The view was amazing from the wall sized window
The blackout was perfect
There are 2 buffet breakfast ( one for suites on the 7th floor and one for rooms LL floor )
The LL floor breakfast is way better
The hotel was clean and always smelled good
The only problem we encountered was a mistake they made with our room ... They gave us double beds instead of the king we booked ... But they made up for that by giving us free breakfast
