Hotel Review: Conrad Dubai

We splurged on Emirates Business Class on the way back from Budapest with a stopover in Dubai.  We lived in Dubai 15 years ago and hadn’t been back since.  We heard it might have changed just a little…

For our stay, I got a good deal at the Conrad Dubai located near the head of Sheikh Zayed Highway.  For a reasonable fee, the hotel sent us a driver to pick us up at the airport and take us to the Conrad at one in the morning.

As expected, opulence is the key to any hotel in Dubai.

We were given an upgrade to a deluxe room on the 41st floor due to my Hilton Diamond status.

On the right of the second photo, that is a window into the bathroom with shades that you can raise or lower by remote control.  A little weird, but hey, it’s Dubai…

The bathroom was very large with both a bath and a shower.  Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without terry-clothed robes.

The manager gave us little candies and dates along with a whole bowl of fruit which we couldn’t finish even over our two day stay.

We faced the ocean, but the haze only allowed us to see the neighborhoods around the hotel.  Pretty typical for Dubai.

The executive Lounge was both well-stocked and spacious.  Spent a lot of time up here.

The Dubai Metro station is directly in front of the hotel and connected by a walkway.  Made getting up and down Sheikh Zayed Highway very easy.  You can visit several malls by taking the Metro.

It was great to get back to Dubai after so many years.  The Conrad was a great hotel and I would stay there again if given a chance to go back.  Everyone in the hotel treated us wonderfully.
