Best Hotel in Dubai. Creative and special

Must stay hotel in Dubai! Location location location… Best service, food and a spacious room. Smooth check-in and strong WiFi. The swimming pool and gym are quite big. We had check-out at 2 pm but the manager was so helpful and generous. He gave me the key back and said we could still use their lift and other services as our flight was late evening. So special treatment and service was offered to us. - Daya
