Will be in UAE for first time this Fall on way back from Australia trip as a result of booking Ethihad’s first class apt. I’ll have 4 days there and thinking of spending 2 days in DXB and 2 days in AUH. Looking for hotel advice. I am SPG platinum and Hyatt diamond. Was thinking of booking St Regis Saadiyat Island for AUH before points increase but wondering if too far outside city or easy cab ride away. No ideas for DBX. Looking forward to your recs for both cities.
@ puckjeff — Personally I prefer the Park Hyatt to the St. Regis on Saadiyat Island, and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay in that area. It’s nice because it’s a bit secluded from the city, but only a 15 minute taxi ride away. So you get the best of both worlds. In Dubai it all depends how much you want to spend. The Grosvenor House is popular, but I don’t like the area it’s in (it’s in Dubai Marina, which is like the Financial District). Personally prefer Le Meridien, or might even go for the Park Hyatt or Grand Hyatt, as I prefer their locations.
