Check-in

Check-in was efficient and friendly, where Rock, the associate upon seeing on his screen that it was my birthday 2 days ago took time to greet me. He also informed us of the room upgrade we got as a diamond member, the breakfast timings at Rosewater and the Happy Hour at the Nahaam.

CONCLUSION

This Hilton property is probably one of the most "complete" hotel we have stayed at. It is modern, it´s close to some top attractions of Abu Dhabi and it has it´s own private beach. The staff were all friendly and professional, the rooms are well-appointed and of course the amenities were top-notch. The breakfast buffet offering was extensive as well as that during happy hour. Easy access to the Observation Deck and Qasr Al Watan is a big plus. To all the staff of Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers, Shukran!
