I stayed for one night in May, very friendly staff (particularly Johnnie at the pool bar!) and handy for walking to Festival City. The rooms was spacious and very clean. We also enjoyed the Belgian Beer Cafe with outdoor seating. Overall a very pleasant stay.

First of all, I am a Platinum IHG member. The hotel meets the standards you'd expect out of Crowne Plaza. I have stayed at three Crowne Plaza's in Dubai and this one is the best choice of the three. First the good things, the service and the attention you get is impeccable. The staff at the gym and the swimming...

I like this hotel. It’s really nice for the price. It’s a short distance to the airport and you are right next to the mall. It’s a little far from the center of Dubai where everything else is, but it’s only a 10 min taxi ride to just about anything you would want to do. When I stayed there were...

This hotel is extremely conveniently located for the airport, about a 5 or 10 minute transfer. When I stayed it afforded excellent value. The hotel staff were very friendly, quickly memorizing my 6 year old son’s name. The two beds in the room were of good size and were extremely comfortable. There are at least two swimming pools and a...

Stayed at the CP Festival City a number of times simply because it is a consistently good hotel. Breakfast/room service is good, the rooms are modern, airy and well lit while the upper pool deck area is very relaxing. Service at the pool is also very good, so the staff here should be applauded - this makes all the difference....
