Great place to stay during a long layover in Dubai. It was comfortable and had just what we needed after a long flight (rooftop pool/bar for one); I would be happy staying longer.

Very nice location

Pros: Location and an excellent staff.
Location: The souks (markets) were within walking distance and gave us a chance to see different restaurants and shopping opportunities.
This was a new travel location for us. I had searched for things to do and found that this hotel offered a chance to walk to the souks and a few restaurants that we wanted to try. Hotel staff was excellent in giving suggestions for additional recommendations. Unknown to us, the tours that we wanted also gave us an opportunity to see the sights and speak with the drivers and other tourists while going to the tours. Perfect rooftop swimming pool for an evening photo shoot and a glass of red.

Great centrally located hotel, with a great staff.

Pros: The helpful staff and the food.
Location: We enjoyed walking along the Dubai Marina, visiting the various souqs (markets), seeing the insanily huge Dubai Mall, and theamazing architecture.
This was a great hotel, just a half block from the Dubai Creek. The hotel was very clear and updated, with absolutely no issues to complain about. Very nice buffet breakfast, very international, which means there is always something for everyone (Omelet station, lots of yogurts, meats / cheeses, hot and cold cereals, fruits and juices). We had a nice room on the 7th floor overlooking the "creek" (huge river used for shipping and transportation). The staff is great and respond immediately to any request. We called down and asked for another bottle of water, and two minutes later, someone from housekeeping was at our door with 3 cold bottles. They have a nice happy hour with lots of food to nibble on (or make it your evening meal, if you’re not too hungry). Table 9 is their in-house restaurant (former Gordon Ramsey’s, but now run by his former chefs), was excellent. There are always taxis right outside the door to whisk you off to wherever you wish to go. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Excellent small(er) hotel near the Airport

I stay here several times a year and am impressed with each stay. Great staff, clean modern rooms and small enough to not overwhelm you. Rooftop pool is the best place to relax and enjoy the view. It's more of a business hotel so not many children running around. On the creek with most rooms having excellent views. Good soundproofing so the early morning call to prayer (just after dawn) is but a faint sound. I walked through the Sheraton Dubai Creek (just down the street) last week and, although a nice hotel, I'll stick with the Hilton. Free daily shuttle to the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort if you want a day at the beach without all the chaos that can some with staying at a beach resort.

Excellent City Property Along Dubai Creet with Good Views

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: not in turist area
10 minutes from the airport by Taxi ( 35 AED) but far enough away that you are out of the noise and chaos zone. This is more of a business hotel, but has a great rooftop pool with excellent views of the city and Dubai Creek. City Center Mall is 5 minutes away and there are excellent eateries (including Western chains) in the area. HH Gold & Diamond members usually can get a corner room upgrade with an excellent view of the Creek. Some rooms have a wonderful view of the building next door however. AC works well (even in August). Good water pressure and temperature control. Complementary daily shuttle to the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort lets you enjoy the amenities of the beach resort yet get away from the tourist district. I’m on hotel stay 8 at the Dubai Creek with two more booked in 2012 and it remains one of my favorite Middle East properties. Like many Dubai hotels, they are tolerant of Westerners but you are expected to respect Islamic rules and traditions. No alcohol is served at the hotel between 4 and 6 PM daily, and it is very scarce (if available at all) during Ramadan. The rooftop pool is relaxed and very casual, with good service and food selection. The HH Executive lounge on the M level offers continental breakfast (one or two hot items) and the evening snacks are excellent, with a variety of adult beverages served from 6 to 8 (except during Ramadan). If I were staying over 3 days, I’d split my stay between the Dubai Creek and Jumeirah Resort to give you the best of both properties.

Near to the airport but with a great view of Creek and high rises, this modern hotel is a great option for stopover break.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, close to airport
The room was sleek with huge windows, the rooftop bar and pool had a nice view. Breakfast was great and the restaurant was fine for dinner. If you don't need the beach or highrise feel, this hotel is an excellent business option or stopover to refuel after a long flight. Very comfortable and stylish place and good value.

Style on the Creek

All the Reception and Bar staff were exceptional. They ensured that we felt welcomed and cared for from the first moment of arrival. The Cocktail bar was elegant and welcome after a sticky flight and transfer and the room was understated luxury with a fabulous view over the busy Creek. The Verre Restaurant was a great experience where again the staff were reassuringly professional and friendly.
