Radisson Blu Hotel Media City Dubai
The Radisson Blu Hotel Media City Dubai is obviously a chain hotel, so we weren’t really expecting too much from it. We hotel was chosen because of its location in Media City where we had hoped to visit the Food Festival. In the end, we decided not to to go to the Festival, so a more central choice of hotel in Dubai might have been preferable.
Our room here was upgraded to a suite because of the early check in time (6am) (at our expense). The staff were very helpful with sorting this out.
The palatial suite gave us access to the Business Lounge which had a “happy hour” from 5 – 8pm where all the drinks were provided foc – so very happy indeed! There are two outside swimming pools on the 2nd and 8th floors which are nice areas to relax in if you are getting over jet lag (as we were).
The hotel is nice enough, but focussed on a business market with large conference meeting rooms etc. There is also a veneer of luxury about it which doesn’t quite deliver in practice. For example – tea bags were provided, but no kettle? The many spotlights are on a complex push button system which takes several “pushes” to activate.
