There are plenty, depending on which part of Deira you're in, you won't have to go far to find one.

I'll either stay at flora grand, sheraton creek or one of the landmark (probably grand), so are there laundromats near these 3 hotels. How do i go about finding them.

Do you mean self service or a laundry ?

I can't honestly recall ever being able to find a self service laundry when I have looked previously for posters, what you will find is plenty of staff operated laundries because labour is so cheap.

See these topics

However, we may be wrong and you can find them

That would be great to get someone to do it for me but without paying hotel prices. Or I guess I could get an apartment hotel that has a washing machine in the room. Do you know any reasonable ones. Either in Deira or Bur Dubai.

There are several in Bur Dubai, Deira and also along Sheikh Zayed Road, which would put you more central but still close to the cruise terminal.

Here's a good map. It's not to scale because it's been squashed to fit on one page and things are further than they appear but you can see the cruise terminal, Deira, Bur Dubai and Sheikh Zayed Road

bigbustours.com/eng/dubai/UploadedFiles/Duba…

As you look at the map, Deira is on the left hand side of the creek and Bur Dubai is on the right. The hotels I mention in your other post are situated :

Arabian Courtyard - oposite Dubai museum which is ine Al Fahidi fort (red flag 6) and the others are all close enough to walk to Bur Juman mall (red flag 2)

I would also look at

Winchester Grand apartments - Bur Dubai close to Bur Juman mall

Four Points Sheraton apartments - Sheikh Zayed Road

Chelsea Towers apartments - Sheikh Zayed Road

both are on the oposite side of SZR from blue flag 20

From either of the above you can be in Dubai Mall by taxi in 5 mins and there is a metro station close by to both. From here in a cab to the cruise terminal would take around 15-20 mins and cost roughly 30 dirham

You need not look for laundromats. The maximum shops in Dubai are Laundry (who can do wash, iron or dryclean), barber, tailor, grocery, restaurants, etc. Almost all of these work everyday, even Fridays. You may not find these shops in fancy hotel boulevards, but just step out into smaller streets in town. Deira, Bur Dubai, Karama, Satwa, anywhere....

Thanks so much for that big bus map. That is exactly what I need to get my bearings.
