Check-in

We arrived at the hotel around 11am and had to wait for an hour before we could receive our card key. In the meantime, we were given the usual DoubleTree cookies and was told that we were upgraded to one of their deluxe rooms. Thanks guys 😍

Also, since the Executive Lounge was still closed, we were given a voucher for main course and softdrinks as well as drinks and one granola box to be served in the Larte Café.

Exploring the Area

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the BurJuman with various shops and restaurants including a Jollibee 😍

CONCLUSION

I was really curious to stay at this hotel since it is new (it opened in December last year) and the nightly rates are reasonable as well. The reception was impressive and the mural paying tribute to Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan will definitely catch your attention. The Larte Café located to the right of the reception has a very chic, modern design. The rooms with its industrial design were also lovely. The hotel has two pools, a fitness center and a business center among others. We were told that the Executive Lounge would be opening late October so hopefully, we would be able to check it out on our next stay. As for the breakfast buffet, the selection was extensive and very good. All the staff I had contact with were friendly and lastly, the location is perfect as it just a few steps away from BurJuman shopping mall and the Metro Station which we took advantage of while visiting the Expo 2020. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would gladly be back when we come to Dubai next time 😍
