Chose this one keeping in mind the walking distance to the InterContinental - which had an event on. The flight times out of Abu Dhabi meant that we arrived way to early - even by "early check-in"
standards. The staff treated this as a matter of course - checked us in and while we went our merry way to the event, there were assurances of actually checking in earlier. And yes indeed - we did get our rooms quickly. For a traveler doing a long-haul into a new city - a hotel which takes this first step for customer experience is a great thing.
The rooms are tidy and neatly laid out. Well light as well - as much as the cloudy days this week could offer. The 7th floor room was on the side of the main street - so there's the usual early morning "city coming to life" noises - but that's actually great for me.
The breakfast has a good spread and starts right on time.
The connectivity to the property is reasonable and well documented. For a short stay, business or, tourist trip - I'd recommend the hotel. [Less]
