No matter how long you stay and no matter the times you spend at this beautiful hotel, you can't get enough and you will always feel humbled by this hotel's family. Previously, as in 3 years ago, I thought this hotel's perfection resides within its front desk and client relations teams. Recently, however, Mr. KIrolus, Sami, an F&B leader, showed me that the perfection of this facility, reaches beyond any other hotel's in Dubai downtown, and perhaps in all of Dubai. Mr. SAMI Thank you. Hats off. One last note, you feel overwhelmed when Omar Meflih takes your room service order. You get a rush of a surprise that Mr. MEFLIH, remembers your favourite request and its add ons. This, for me, is a very professional and delightful attentiveness. Sami and Meflih... thank you!
