The Standard of Hotels in Dubai
Dubai is known to have one of the best hotels in the world. From Burj Khalifa, to Burj Al Arab, the Atlantic Hotel, and  Marine Dubai. The list of the 5 star hotels in Dubai is huge.This week I decided to do my post on the difference in the hotel experience of Dubai hotel when compared to hotels in  Canada. It is not fair as I experienced only a few hotels in Canada but most of those experiences were not very pleasant. As my father worked in the hotel industry, I was fortunate enough to experience a wide range of different hotel in the Middle East particularly in the U.A.E. Last November, my family planned a trip to the Niagara falls. We planned to stay over night so that we can enjoy to the fullest without worrying to drive all the way back home on the same day. I will not mention the name of the hotel in which we booked our room but all I can say is that it was a five star hotel. I was a bit surprised when I entered the room. The decor, furniture and the theme of the room was very outdated. A prefect example of this is that the room still have tube screen televisions in 2011.  Most of the amenities available were all to pay for. They did not have proper room services. Only Breakfast menu was served. They had a food chain franchise that was opened in the lobby of the hotel which served lunch and dinner.




  Moreover, when I asked for a microwave in my room, they placed it on the study table. I needed sugar for my daughter milk and the room service bought the sugar in a paper plate. It was very shocking to get that sort of service from a 5 star chain. Most of the 5 star hotels in Dubai are super deluxe. There interior, exterior, customer service, room assistance and the other appealing attraction are of no match. You really feel that the money you paid for the stay was worth it.

This room is of the Al Bustan Rotana hotel. This is a five star hotel but not very popular or famous. I know that everyone can not afford a room in Burj Al Arab hotel but Al Bustan Rontana offer great deal that is affordable.


This is Fairmount Dubai. It is an old hotel but as you see in the picture, the interior and decor of the room look very new and classy.


Atlantic Hotel is the latest addition to the luxury list of hotel in Dubai. Atlantic Dubai is a world of its own and would require a separate blog posting to cover the wide range of hotel services.
