Went here for an event last night and toured the hotel afterwards. I had a staff member show me the rooms and I was impressed by the hotel as much as I can be after living out here for 5 years. It's ridiculously nice and over-opulent. No penny was spared and everything is nice except for the location. I wouldn't recomend any guests staying here because it's 10 minutes deep into the palm so if you wanted to go see the Dubai Museum or get to the airport you are looking at 45 minutes to one hour, and if you wanted to just get off the palm it's 20AED and just time consuming. It's funny to be a stones throw from the marina but still be a 20 min taxi away from it because you have to go all the way around. Anyways the event was lovely and the hotel looks very nice.
