We had a standard Fairmont room on the fifth floor which was spacious and looked after religiously by the wonderful housekeeper Elma. She was extremely proud of her work, constantly leaving us flowers...

We decided to stopover in Abu Dhabi for 3 days on the way back from Thailand and we were not disappointed with our hotel choice. A superb hotel with the added bonus of a private beach attached. Definitely worth upgrading to a view room, to be able to view the grand mosque both day and night is quite the experience....

Suite 953, excellent view of the Mosque, quiet corridors, private and a personal service. Since visiting this hotel twice a year for the past four years, I believe we have stayed on nearly all levels from 1 to 9. Although the suites are special, the deluxe creek view rooms are more than adequate and comfortable. I admit, I am one...
