Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Fairway Dubai
Decent and spacious
well, we stayed there for 2 nights in Nov and found it pretty decent. The hotel is close by to city cnter and not very far from the airport. The room is pretty spacious and i wudn't call the room decor great, it's ok.We have no complaints abt it.... :-)
The food at the Indian Res was good.Overall, good value at 600 dhs.
Nice hotel, great location
My wife & I stayed here Oct 2005, for 5 nights. Its a very small hotel, but looks as if it has been recently done out. Very impressed with the general decor & quality of the rooms, and hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. Shuttle bus from airport & check-in went very smoothly, even at 2AM. The hotel is conveniently close to the airport, without being close enough to be kept awake by planes at night.
Best thing about the hotel is the location. If you stay here you've got easy access to the city centre, and you won't have to put up with the huge amount of building work going on at Jumeirah Beach. The hotel does free (one-way) shuttles to the city centre & shopping malls. Best of all, it's only 5 minutes walk to the Tennis Stadium/Aviation Club, where there are a great collection of bars & restaurants for evening entertainment. Also some of these were open all day, even in Ramadan, which was very handy. For a really good restaurant check out The Cellar at the Aviation Club.
There is only one downside with the hotel, and that is the pool. It is very small, not particularly appealing, and it is completely in the shade all day. If you are planning on spending holiday time sunning by the pool, then look elsewhere, but if you're not bothered about that then you could do a lot worse than this nice little hotel.
Other recommendations: The sand dune safari trip (booked for us by hotel reception staff), the open top bus tour, to get your bearings if you've never been to the city before, and the Wild Wadi water park. Also, don't believe any bad press about the Jumeirah public beach - it's a beautiful spot, the locals are fine, there just isn't much in the way of facilities, as you would expect.
Awful hotel. A complete disastrous stay. We stayed at the hotel for 5 night in October/November, had to see more than half of the hotel to find a room clean and tidy enough for human occupation !! the state of the carpet and furniture was hedious
Indian Restaurant was good.
Staff not exceptionally service oriented either. 1 star hotel at 4 star prices !!!!
Comfy, cosy, modern, and saver- enjoyed our stay
We stayed at Le Meridien Fairway for 4 days and enjoyed it thoroughly. We had reserved 2 rooms, but the hotel quickly upgraded us to a suite for free. The room standard was excellent, and the staff were most efficient. Its location was very convenient, although we had problem with most taxi drivers taking us to the wrong Le Meridien or not knowing where the hotel was!! Food was excellent in the small breakfast room and swimming pool, though small, was adequate. We were impressed by the quick and efficient process of transfer from the airport to getting to our rooms- WELL BEFORE the check in time as a matter of courtsey! We also stayed at Sheraton Deira Hotel for a few days just after this, but the kids and I gave the unanimous verdict in favour of this modern abode. Highly recommended.
Great value Hotel -
Stayed at this hotel for 10 nights start of October, excellant hotel, great value, rooms very good size.
The hotel has an hourly shuttle to the nearby Le Meridien Dubai beside he airport (5mins), there you can use the excellant facilities free of charge during the day or the 10 restuarants for dinner.
only downer for this hotel, is that small pool is in shadow nearly all day because of its location, but this really isnt too bad a problem, because of the use of the sister hotel
Myself and my girlfriend stayed at The Le Meridien Fairway for a short 5 day break and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help with any queries you may have. The hotel was in an excellent location not far from the airport and close to the shopping area. The room was very clean and a pleasure to stay in.
An excellent hotel which was very good value for money and I would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dubai.
Very Comfortable Hotel
We used this hotel (July 2005) in Dubai partly because fo the location and partly because of the price. We were due to arrive in Dubai at 0430 and depart about 0700 a few days later so we chose a hotel not far from the airport. We also wanted to be close to shopping. This hotel meets both critera nicely. We arrived early and went to the Le Meriden Hotels desk just after arrivals. It was manned at that time and within 5 minutes we were on the shuttle which only took less that 5 minutes. We were checked in quickly. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Water and fruit were provided on arrival. The only gripe was we were on the 3rd floor (of 3) and I think our room was below the air conditioning plant. It wasn't off putting, just a constant humming drone. The hotel arranged taxis for us whenever we needed them, either private or regular. Our first taxi was private and we eventually hired the taxi for a 4 hour tour Dubai. It cost 60dhs and was well worth it for the 4 of us. The Diera City Center shopping complex (biggest in Dubai - but not for long!) was practically across the road but as the roads around the hotel area were more like motorways, we took taxis to get there and back (6 - 13dhs). Make sure you take a card from the hotel, the porters hand them out, because we found that the taxi drivers may not know where the hotel is. The hotel has a small but adequate pool. We didn't try the restauant, an indian buffet style one but we were told that it was not bad. We ate in the shopping center which had a food court and a number of full service retaurants. There is also a Chilis (of American fame) in the same block. Overall a clean and very comfortable hotel with very friendly staff.
We stayed there for one night and we were very happy. For USD 95 , for a 24 hour check in (special emirates stopover rate - no breakfast) it was very good value for money. The staff were all very helpful. The room was very big and we were pleasantly surprised as this hotel. It is a good choice for someone who does not want to blow a great deal of money for a top rate hotel.
Nice hotel and friendly staff
Le Meriden Fairways hotel is a very nice and confortable hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Even the pool is little you can use the pool of the Le Meridien near the airport. The rooms have a good size and a warm decoration. The room service is excellent. However we didn´t tryed the breakfast buffet.
Excellent choice for a central hotel. As we rented a car we didn´t have problem with the transport. You can find a lot of good restaurant near the hotel and the guest have free transport to the main shopping center near the hotel.
Very good hotel in Dubai.
Good Value and Charm
Boutique style hotel in a city dominated by gigantic tower style hotels. Stayed here in April 2004 with 7 year old. Our room was really lovely, more like a 5 star room. Gorgeous bathroom, french provencal flavour to furniture. Staff were amazingly polite, helpful and reasonable to deal with especially the Philippino girls who ran the breakfast restaurant. I liked that we could open the windows. The pool is small but adequate to cool off in, it is not resort style - but if that is what you want, the hotel will ferry you for free over to their larger sister hotel Le Meridien Dubai where you can choose from two pools. My son in particular liked the Fairway hotel as it was really a homely more intimate atmosphere and not all rush rush like bigger hotels. Also, it is about 3 minutes away from the popular City Centre shopping mega mall where all Dubai society hang out and shop till they drop. he hotel will also take you there for free, but you will have to get a taxi back, costs little. It was a real taste of Dubai life to go to the mall early evening and see entire families, all dressed up to the nines, with shopping trolleys piled high as they spent their obvious wealth. The elegant women are particularly amazing to observe with their jewellry, heavy make up, high heels and sequins. We loved Dubai as a stopover experience. Everyone speaks perfect English and have the best manners on the planet. Dont miss out on the desert Safari, our hotel booked it for us. If you have children, dont miss out on the Wild Wadi Water park. Be prepared though, to get very wet and stay wet all day long. We took a taxi there. Also, understand that unless you stay on one of the very expensive beach hotels, you cant access the divine beach of Dubai. We would stay at Le Meridien Fairway again. It was really good value for money

Andrew picked us up from home and drove us to the airport. We discovered that Qantas had allocated us seats in two different rows - Chris in 14C and Bruce in 15D. This was very quickly rectified by a delightful young man at Qantas check-in. We had a coffee with Lauren and Stuart and their girls and then it was onto the plane and away.

... level of ostentatiousness that many Dubai restaurants have. We had a perfect spot of the aquarium and we enjoyed some cocktails with our meal. We opted for 1 starter each and then the hot sharing platter which had a wide range of grilled seafood and vegetables. All up the meal came to AED1,600. It was only much later on that I remembered the 15% discount for Emirates skywards members and I sent them an email afterwards. At the time of writing this, they had refused ...
