I did not stay in a hotel, but from all reports the Hyatt is excellent, a true 5 star hotel.
It is relatively new, as I remember when it was being built and watched its progress.
The restaurant is open to non-residents, and also the other facilities can be used at a fee : the Kidz Corner where the children are supervised and fed; the swimming pool; tennis court; and just strolling in the lovely garden is a pleasure. Like many places in Dubai water features are common- a stream, fountains and waterfall, all aimed at reducing the heat.
Unique Qualities: The views are nothing to write home about, but the grounds are attractive and well kept.
Address: Deira Corniche Alkhaleej Road Po Box 5588
Comparison: more expensive than average
Burj el Arab
I couldn't afford it, but my daughter and her husband spent a weekend there- it was a promotional package at reduced rate, lucky things.
They said it was out of this world.
The hotel has 4 rstaurants offering Europian, Arabian , Seafood and Infoemal cuisine. There are 3 bars, and the usual facilities: fitmess/gym, sauna, jacuzzi, hairdresser,swimming, shops and a shuttlebus service. Baby sitting is also available.
Unique Qualities: Everything is outstanding.
It is 0.5 km from the centre of the city
It is claimed to be the most architecturally advanced and the tallest hotel in the world.
