This hotel is beautiful all over, inside the lobby, and inside the rooms. Many choices of restaurants to pick from, and one of the nicest hotels in the Middle East. The entrance to the lobby is breath talking with the beautiful overhead chandelier. Great margaritas in the Mexican Restaurant in the hotel.

When you first arrive, you certainly get that WOW experience. The entrance lobby, check in and the central lobby area are beautiful. I was just in a standard room which is not particularly large, and the bathroom was too small for two people to use at the same time. But the fit-out was good with plenty of storage, large coffee...
