Amazing suite. We can view the worlds tallest building from our bedroom. Two bathrooms - ours with a marble bath. Oven and microwave but no toaster or tea towel. Checkin service amazing. Greeted with cool scented face washers.

Historical Traveler Reviews Dusit Thani Dubai
I recently stayed for the second time at this elegant hotel in Dubai. Simple and luxurious, with good service and wonderful food from a selection of intimate restaurants, I was happy to go back again. Important to me was the fact that I felt comfortable staying on at breakfast alone while my partner went off to his regional office. I lingered, read the papers, and had more coffee and the best almond croissant I have ever tasted. Lunch solo was also comfortable in the newly opened deli on the ground floor. Later we appreciated the candles in the bathroom... But if you're alone and want opthwer entertainment, the design allows you to watch tv from the bath! It's not for you if you want all your entertainment laid on and in one place but is ideal for those who want a comfortable base with its own special qualities.
Great hotel, not best for tourists
I stayed at the Dusit Dubai with a group of friends on our way home from Kolkata. After that, the luxury of the Dusit was breathtaking. All 4 couples were upgraded to suites or apartments on arrival. The executive suite was outstandingly furnished with a large plasma screen tv and our room had a great view over the Sheikh Zayed road towards the Emirates Towers, and all the way round to the Burj Al Arab in the distance. Unfortunately, the next day my girlfriend and I were told that we would have to go back to the room we had originally booked, which was the basic room, view of the desert and stinking of old cigarettes. As the rest of my party were allowed to keep their upgrade we did complain and eventually got an apartment suite. The food was generally great, and room service was prompt, hot and tasty. The breakfast was a varied buffet, bearing in mind that pork is not available, the chicken sausage and beef bacon were quite good.
In hindsight, given that we were tourists rather than on business, I wouldn't stay again, but would rather be nearer Jumeirah (The One and Only Royal Mirage is out of this world), but Dubai is so spread out that no hotel can give you easy access to everything. If it wasn't for them trying to reverse our upgrade I would have given them 5 stars, in general a lovely hotel.
Don't go for dinner
Having spent a long time in Thailand we found the food disapointing. Also disapointing was the fact that we had to reject the bill 4 times before we paid..due to overcharging... even at 4th attempt it was wrong as they had omitted something.. to our favour.. by then we felt we deserved it!
I stayed from August 19-25,2005 . The hotel is generally an excellent hotel. The rooms are clean , room service were very prompt. Food are tasteful . Fitness center & the swimming pool are a question mark to me. The pool is not deep , only one meter deep and they do not have a sauna room. People are so polite and friendly . In the main reception area , you can have your PC connected to a wireless internet for free while enjoining the Thai music preformed live.
New hotels are hot and almost new hotels are out
I have been in this just after its opening and also the year thereafter, at that time it was a nice hotel, rooftop pool and fine restaurants (Thai and Italian). The rooms are nice, but bacause of the low maintenance (curtains falling down...etc.) people want again something newer and there are a lot of new hotels. I had some experiences during the last stay also such as noisy neighbours and the lack of the staff to do something about it. After Dusit I have been regularly in the Shangi-La and this is much better comparing to Dusit, although I find the staff of the Marriott or Emirate Towers much friendlier and more helpful.
having just stayed at the dusit dubai i have nothing but good things to say about it. the architecture is breath taking, its location ideal (if not a bit too at the end of sheikh zayed rd) and its staff more than approachable. my friends and i were able to build a great rapport with the helpful and ever present staff and they were never lacking kindness and smiles. the only bad point about my visit was that internet is no longer available through the hotel tv so if you havnt got a laptop your looking at fee's in the region of £5 per half hour for the net!!! rooms are brill and the views breath taking, stay and enjoy the dusit dubai!!!
Excellent service, loved it
I stayed at the Dusit for 2 nights on business. The service was excellent throughout my stay, I was very impressed. The rooms were very nice indeed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. The location is a bit 'non-central', but I was there for work so don't know how much of a problem this would be, as I didn't have time to explore Dubai. Lovely place, great restaurants and attentive service.
Fantastic Hotel, but location leaves something to be desired
A stylish and modern hotel with a flair of Thai culture, the Dusit Dubai is sure to please its leisure and business guests. Service is very good, while the room itself leaves an excellent impression. The bathroom alone makes the hotel a standout, but the high thread count sheets and comfortable leather swivel chair and modern desk adds to the feeling of a chic and functional atmosphere.
The one drawback of the Dusit Dubai? Location. While the new downtown of Dubai is a pedestrian-friendly area, the Dusit is located at the far corner of the newly sprawling core city skyline. There simply aren't a whole lot of amenities in the surrounding area. Nevertheless, taxis are cheap and abundant in Dubai - less than 30 dirhams (CDN$ 10) will take you virtually anywhere.
We arrived back from Dubai last night after spending 8 nights at the Dusit Hotel in Dubai.
We found the service fantastic, the hotel is situated in a great location on the Sheik Zayed Road and is opposite the Shangri-La Hotel and close to the Fairmont Hotel. The breakfast was plentiful (if you get there on time)!!
Wherever you go in Dubai, you need a taxi. We never had to wait for a taxi at the Dusit, they were always waiting outside for us!! The fares are also very reasonable.
The hotel is approximately 15 min drive from Jumeriah (if you want to be near the beach / Burk Al Arab etc) but as I say, it is in a great location for exploring Dubai.
All in all, the hotel is great value for money.
This place is awful
This was a terrible hotel. Absolutely awful customer service (was lied to about the availability of a feather pillow multiple times until I spoke to the manager), had to call room service several times before they responded, completely non chalant attitude from management and staff....I'd recommend any other hotel (esp. the new Shangrila or the Emirates Towers) over this place

Yesterday we went to the Emirates Mall and saw them skiing inside! Managed to buy tomatoes(ead5,95 so around $2pkg).

After a long flight (thank goodness for 1700 movies/TV) we arrived in Dubai. Only a mild 40 degrees. After checking in we caught a taxi over to the Dubai Mall for some groceries. The array of fresh fruit was amazing. We were sorry when we reached the checkout that we hadn't weighed the tomatoes in the fruit section (some 100m) from the checkout. …
Arrived at airport 5.15am Dubai time. Checked into our motel and had a couple hours rest before a quick taxi ride to nearby Dubai Mall to start the day on the hop-on hop- off bus. The bus was great, there are a couple of different routes and you get off at any of the stops, stay as long as you like and every 15 minutes there is another bus so get …
