Booked for 3 nights stay and decided to make it 4Pros: Great hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Good location to the airport, metro and taxis into townCons: The breakfast was usually crowded at 10am and could if benefited from more staff.
Pros: Complementary Snacks in the afternoon and complementary soft drinks in the mini bar.
The modern design and functionality with the buttons.
Friendly and helpful staff in general.Cons: Shower wasn't working properly and no signs to show which side to turn the knobs . It took a long time to figure out which side was hot because the cold side would begin hot . Then, it kept switching in the same minute from hot , to very hot , to cold , to very cold. I hope it gets fixed.
Breakfast buffet and Lunch buffets were not as rich as I expected , salads and starters were poor in both. Too much focus was on Asian/ Indian food as opposed to Arabic food and basic starters in both breakfast and lunch . Lunch buffet in the first restaurant walking distance from the hotel was less than half the price at the hotel with much much better and richer choices.
One of the employees in charge of service counters of one of the seminars/courses on the Mezzanine flour was rude yesterday. I went by mistake to their service counters and she asked me to go to the other service counter for refreshments for the course I was taking so I said okay, I'll take a plate from here and go to there and she said no ma'am, I said you have a problem with the plate too ? She said yes and in a very rude way.
Short stay at Jumeirah Creekside HotelPros: Good location and very clean. The staff is not very knowledgable about the outside attractions/locations and how to get around; which didn't bother me. But they don't even know what other facilities they have inside the same hotel building. For example, they serve breakfast in a restaurant on first floor. I missed the breakfast one day and a member of the facility told me there is another restaurant in the same building and she told me the approximate location - she asked me to ask other facility members as I walk toward that location so they can help me find it. I tried asking many and spent about 15 minutes looking for that restaurant. I got many answers like "there is no such restaurant here", "the restaurant is out side the building, but in the same compound". Unfortunately nobody was able to guide me to the other restaurant. Finally I walked to the first person who informed me about the other restaurant and she took me there. So I believe it is important that they train their employees on what other facilities they have in the same hotel / building and may be equip them with floor map of the building. Cons: Good place and very clean. The location is very convenient and close to the airport.
