There are many upsides to a stay at Dubai’s Jumeirah Crreekside Hotel including its location and facilities but where your room is located is important.
What: Room 441 ( a deluxe room ) at Jumeirah Creekside Hotel Dubai.
Why: Dubai Tourism arranged for journalists attending the Arabian Travel Mart to stay at the hotel for the first few days of the conference.
When: May 3 to 6, 2013.
How did it rate?
Free wi-fi and local phone calls and non-alcoholic mini-bar.
A selection of books which could be purchased from AED 75. In my room were Tasmina Perry Private Lives, the Vault by Ruth Rendell and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala A lovesong for India.
The room was light and airy and the décor stylish.
The blue rubber duck, loofa and mineral salts next to the large bath.
The hotel is very close to the airport (but insists it is not an airport hotel) which could be a great advantage, especially if your flight coincides with peak period traffic times in Dubai.
My room was on the same side as the Century Village and The Irish Village and the music from the venue was clearly evident on both Friday and Saturday nights until at least 1am. Those in our group who were on the other side of the hotel couldn’t hear such noise suggested light sleepers especially should check the direction their rooms face.
