Holiday Inn Dubai - Easily Accessible Quality Hotels in the City
Hello - Sunil here to review the Holiday Inn Dubai.
The Holiday Inn hotels are elegant and sleek accommodations conveniently located in strategic places all over the city.
There are seven Holiday Inn hotels to choose from ? Downtown Dubai, Al Barsha, Sharjah, Jumeirah, Safa Park, Dubai airport, and Dubai Internet City.
The Holiday Inn hotel chain is popular for its excellent service and amenities, and has many branches all over the world.
It is certainly one of the more famous names in the hotel industry in my books. I have memories of Holiday Inn all the way back to when I was 8 years old.
It would be too tedious to read about each Holiday Inn Dubai hotel since they have common features and amenities so I will just focus my discussion two of the most highly rated branches in Dubai, in terms of location convenience and quality of service ? the Downtown Dubai branch and the Al Barsha branch.
The Holiday inn Downtown Dubai is located in the focal point of Deira, within easy reach of the famous Dubai Creek, the gold and spice souks, and the City Center Shopping Mall. It is also just 10 minutes away from the Dubai International Airport. You can probably sprint there if you don?t find a cab ? just joking.
Set on a busy street in the commercial Deira Dubai, this stylish hotel made of glass and steel is your home away from home when you visit and explore the beautiful city of Dubai. You can enjoy a refreshing swim in the rooftop pool, and then sit back and relax in leather armchairs while enjoying a refreshing drink from the Metro Bar. You can work out in the Fitness Center and indulge in the rejuvenating sauna.
Start your morning right with a buffet breakfast in the chic Bistro at the top floor, and have a taste of international and Arabic cuisine for lunch and dinner. If you are in Dubai for a business trip, you can either use the high-speed internet in your own room, or you can just use the computers in the 24-hour Business Center. If you need to organize and event or a function, you will be assisted by the hotel staff and you can use the two meeting rooms or the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center which are just 5km from the hotel.
Have you planned your Dubai tour itinerary already? The hotel is in close proximity to the city?s towering skyscrapers, the historic Dubai creek, and the eye-blinding Gold Souk. If you haven?t planned your tour yet, the Concierge team can recommend exciting places to visit and even book a desert safari adventure tour for you.
On the other hand, the Holiday Inn Al Barsha is conveniently located at Sheikh Zayed Road, near the Mall Of The Emirates and Ski Dubai. The hotel is just a short drive from Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, Knowledge Village, Burj Al Arab, Gold and Spice Souk, Jumeirah Beach and the The Wild Wadi Water Park. It has almost the same facilities and services as the Downtown branch except for the sauna and Turkish steam bath.
The Holiday Inn Downtown Dubai is better in terms of location since it is within the commercial district of the city and it is near the airport. However, some guests were not satisfied during their stay in the Downtown branch. The service was slow, the carpet was smelly, and there were things under the bed left by previous guests.
The Holiday Inn Al Barsha, on the other hand, got raving reviews from customers because of its excellent service. The staff was very polite and attentive, and the food in the Gem Garden was great. There were a lot of choices for the breakfast buffet, and you would have a difficult time deciding what to eat. The rooms were also cleaned frequently and the staff made sure that you got all your needs and requests.
The price range for Holiday Inn hotels range from $450 - $700 per night - and I have seen it even lower during the 2008-2009 global economic slowdown. So take this helpful information with you to save and enjoy your stay at the Holiday Inn Dubai!
