This is a property with high standards in every aspect and it is no surprise that it is a favourite with business travelers. It is well located, on the Marina, and an the Indian Ocean which surrounds the Middle East, specifically the U.A.E. However, as far as service is concerned, this hotel is genuine luxury all the way. The service is high quality, efficient and responsive but is amazingly unobstrusive – you never even spot any housekeeping staff! Tolietries are Bulgari. The beds are among the best you’ll come across in any hotel and you’re assured of restful sleep. Each evening a platter of treats (good stuff, gets better each day) is left in your room. Some of the deluxe rooms overlook The Palm, Jumeirah and the view are seen as some of the most breathtaking in the world. The main rooms aren’t very large but are well appointed with plenty of plush amenities.
The only problem with staying in a hotel or resort in Dubai is the quality of concierge services. The desk is blissfully unfamiliar with Dubai hotspots and will direct you to most ordinary and unpopular restaurants and clubs. Overall, top marks for service, the great food and quiet fast efficiency. Many guests are pleased by their stay in the Western-styled Dubai and are welcomed back at the Grosvenor.
