Needing some hotel advise in Abu Dhabi
Lucky, my partner and I are going to Maldives in late November with a 12 hour layover in Abu Dhabi. Do you have any hotel recommendations for the layover? We are flying Etihad First Class on the way there and then the Apartments on the way back.
I guess it depends on what you want to do, and how much you want to spend?
I generally recommend the Shangri-La, as it’s close enough to the airport, across from the mosque, and has it’s own little souk with several decent restaurants. There’s a Trader’s next door that is typically a bit less expensive, and the Fairmont is next door to that.
I really enjoyed the [URL=’http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2016/01/08/review-rosewood-abu-dhabi/’]Rosewood Abu Dhabi (as did Lucky[/URL]) when I was there but it is further from the airport and the Grand Mosque.
If you have any of the premium US credit cards, consider using their luxury hotel websites to book the one night stay. Typically it comes with several perks, like breakfast, room upgrade if available and a unique property benefit (usually food or spa credit).
