I’m adding real-time information to what Anne has posted as we are now at Millennium Plaza in Dubai. It was a great suggestion by Anne to stay here as the location has many advantages. Standard taxi from airport was 41.50 dirhams at 4 PM Friday, took about 15 minutes. There are numerous restaurants and services around the hotel within 3 blocks, as far as we have explored. There is a Lifco Grocery 1/2 block on SZR and a pharmacy the other way on SZR. Inside the grocery is a laundry/cleaners. They are washing hubby’s jeans and will deliver to hotel within 24 hours for 10 dirhams... significantly less than hotel and faster. Other items were similar pricing. Across SZR (via the footpath bridge to metro) there are a multitude of restaurants (as well as up and down SZR). Starbucks, Wendy’s, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, coffee and pastry shops, numerous more upscale, Mexican even! 

Our booking was for a standard room , we were supposedly upgraded to a king.. it is enormous with a sitting area ant two full size windows overlooking the city. 

 

On the the other hand, the concierge does not seem very knowledgeable and wants mostly to sell his hotel taxis and in house eateries. They forgot to bring an adapter 3 times. The hotel is more than adequate but not over-the-top,  more LaQuinta than Ritz Carlton, perhaps. We are happy and appreciate Anne’s suggestions.

Pleased to hear you arrived safely, are settled in and have obviously got your bearings of the area around the hotel.  Weather could be better and even though it’s still breezy and dusty hopefully, there won’t be any more showers whilst you’re here...

 

Anne..
