"Like Night and Day"
My 2nd stay at the Le Meridien was nothing like my previous experience. The room I was given was uterly filthy with a pronounced 3 cm dirt ring around the baseboards, a thoroughly worn out chair with a stained discolored chair cover velcro'ed to the chair, and very dated plumbing fixtures. In a word "Aweful". The last thing I wanted to do after flying […] 15 hours was to get in an argument with the Assistant Manager. Rather than immediately take my word for it I had to wait at his desk for him to send someone to verify my complaint. Upon confirmation I was given an upgrade to a suite as long as I was out of there by 11:00am and was told that if I had booked directly with the hotel rather than through Expedia, this never would have happened and I would be upgraded next time I called direct. I was given complementary beer and a very weak apology - no offer of breakfast, dinner voucher, etc. When I asked for a ride to the airport across the street the next morning, I was charged $5 which was really insulting. On top of that when I asked for a copy of my bill for the hotel room booking, I was told that I would have to get that from Expedia. I'm not sure why this stay was so bad compared to my previous stay in a club room. Frankly the hotel staff needs a lesson in basic customer service and take 2 star rooms out of circulation.

for a room that was priced over 200 US dollars the bath room was very very small, other than that the room and service was okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Standard Room was standard"
This is a big hotel with excellent facilities and very handy to the airport yet very quiet. I have stayed here a few times and been lucky to be upgraded to a very nice room. My most recent stay of two nights was in a standard room. For the price I paid, I would have expect a bit more. The room was tired and worn. The hotel itself is very nice with plenty […] of facilities and the breakfast buffet was awesome. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room I was initially given, had been smoked in. Within minutes I was in a new room, no dramas at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I stay at the Le Meridien 90% of the time when I visit Dubai because of the great variety of restaurants and relaxation opportunities. While the hotel has been trying to maintain it's rating with improvements in the rooms and updates to the furniture, it is really starting to show it's age. The labyrith of corridors that one must navigate to get to […] and from your room is aggravating at times. The staff are top-notch on most occasions. You occasionally run across a less than stellar performer. I always enjoy my stay because the staff make me feel very welcome and invited. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is about 5 minutes to / from airport"
proximity to aiport makes it convenient. 5 -10 minutes raxi rideGenuine Expedia guest review
Service at this hotel is great, and staff are very friendly. In that category, it certainly is a 4 star hotel. But the building itself is very old and in need of upgrading. Bathrooms are outdated and cramped, bed area is very old. Construction is happening on a new tower for the hotel, which also is not great for noise (although they really need the […] upgrade!) Try the Millennium across the street. Much better option. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Softest bed I can ever remember sleeping in. Staff was very friendly and treated me like royality. I highly recommend the Le Meridien.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
An Excellent Hotel at affordable rates. The staff is very cooperative and hospitable. My stay was extremely comfortable. Look forward to future visits at this splendid hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel but bad experience with staff"
I booked a superior deluxe room because i stayed in one before. When i arrived i was told i have been upgraded to an executive room which turned out to be a serious downgrade due to being a smaller room with no garden access. I thankfully declined the upgrade and requested to be put into the same room category i originally booked, but was told by the […] duty manager that it was absolutely impossible because they were all booked !! Needless to say this has cast a negative shadow over my entire stay not to mention the borderline-unfriendly staff at the Yalumba restaurant breakfast Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Easy Access to Airport"
I've been staying at this hotel since 2004. The staff has always been very helpful and professional towards me. This hotel has easy access to numerous restaurants in the adjacent vicinity. I would recommend this hotel to any business or leisure travelers since it's only minutes away from the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel home base"
Excellent service and friendly welcome as usual.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Staff, NonSmoking Room Smelled Cigarette"
Overall, the staff at the hotel was absolutely wonderful. I couldn't ask for better service. My only complaint was I had requested a non-smoking room, and I was given a room that smelled heavily of cigarettes. I would recommend this hotel to anyone spending an over night or business trip in Dubai. Very close an convenient to the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Greet location as servicibilty exceeded expectatio"
Great sums it up. Select exception in this location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent Hotel and convenient to the Ariport"
Check-in has been a hassle, slow to get rooms, checked in at 1:30pm and had to wait an hour, then they tried to give me a 2nd floor room, which are not good rooms. Was not happy to wait, to be given there lowest price room rate. The problem with the hotels in Dubai that do not participate in the Starwood program, they never get the preferences correct. […] Going to stay at a real Starwood Hotel next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location, BEST pillow"

"Nice but a bit tired."
Overall very nice especially the staff who were helpful and courteous. Rooms need to be refurbished in the near future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Next to the airport."
Although the hotel was non smoking, there was intense smell of tobacco. Carpeting inside the hotel looks very old and worn out. Staff was pretty good. Food is expensive.. and subpar.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value for money"
Hotel is rated as 5 star. But the interior of the hotel other than the lobby was 3 star. Not a family friendly hotel at all. if you have family, don't stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great experience at Le Meridien!!!"
Great time, and a great stay. The contruction was annoying but the staff, restaurants and room more than made up for it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient, efficient and delicious breakfast"
Happy to have booked the Meridien for a short overnight stay near the airport, which exceeded our expectations. Hotel staff made us feel very welcomed. Bed was super comfy and the breakfast had a delicious baked goods and fresh juices. Great to have a strong shower and good night's sleep after a 14-hour flight. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel close to airport"
Good hotel for a short stay. I got prompt help when I needed most from the staffGenuine Expedia guest review
I usually stay at Le Meridien Dubai when I'm only staying in Dubai for a night because of its convenient proximity to the airport. The staff is professional and the room service is superb - the only problem I had this time was that the hotel staff called me 3 times in the first 30 minutes I was there. Also, I did not like that when I didn't answer the […] door, they let themselves into my room. This is atypical and I solved the problem by engaging my deadbolt. Other than that, it was a fantastic stay as always. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT as always!"
I have stayed at Le Meridien several times while in Dubai. And this visit like others was great. Even during Ramadan, the staff and service were commendable. And the Royal Club is well worth upgrading to for the service and extra benefits. The only disappointment is while other staying in The Royal Club have the ability for free airport transfers, those […] traveling from Terminal 2 are not provided the same offer.

Very nice. Very polite professional staff. VERY close to the airport, only about 3 mins.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is excellent. I have not problems at all with recommending this hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
I've been staying a the Le Meridien Hotel by the Airport since 2004. The staff has always been very friendly and cordial. The nearby restaurants make it convenient to enjoy a variety of foods without venturing to far from the hotel. This Hotel is convenient to the airport and the staff is more than willing to arrange your transportation via Hotel Taxi […] or Commercial Taxi to the airport. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or leisure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I had a nice stay and it was fun."
All the staff were very helpful and friendly. I stayed only 2 nights, so I didn't find time to check the restaurants and night club. May be next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
My stay was wonderful. I was a solo traveler having a 2 night stay. Because of the location of the hotel being near the airport it brings so many different types of travelers to it. I was able to make friends and never leave the village because verything I needed was there. Wonderful Pool Staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay in Dubai"
It is always a pleasure to stay at Le Meridien. The overall ambience is pleasing and relaxing. The rooms are exceedingly comfortable and the staff always give us personal attention and top-class service. We also enjoy relaxing by the pools and haviong room service as our planes often arrive very late at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel is off the CHAIN !!!!"

"Great Place to Stay!"
Great hotel with a wonderful staff. I've stayed several times now and have always been pleased. It's literally across the street from the airport however you'd never know it, I don't think I've heard a singe airplane while staying there. The rooms are wonderful, with even the most basic having an "elegant" feel to it. The hotel has several great restaurants […] on site with several others within a short 5 minute walk. I defiantly recommend staying at the Le Meridien! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of my favorites"
Very good accomodations. Not sure why they di not rum a free shuttle to the airport. Travel time is less than 5 minutes so it irritates the taxi drivers when you tell them where you are going. The outdoor dining and pools are good. I am not on a strict budget but do you really have to charge 18 US dollars for a pint of Fosters. Not sure if that is supposed […] to make it an exclusive place. Unfortunately a pint taste the same whether I pay 4 USD or 18 USD. The air handling system in my room was so noisy it reminded me of some two star best western with a window unit. This is unacceptable for a five star hotel. This old girl is showing her age in the hallway carpet alone. The staff are friendly and courteous. I enjoyed an excellent steak with truffle sauce at the beef bistro just out the front door to the left. The service was great and the food was top notch. Again I must be paying for the ambiance, because the steak and beer was over 110 USD. This was for the smaller portion US angus beef rib eye. Conclusion, charging high prices does not increase your star value. A look a tripadvisor will show you that. I will continue to use this hotel but only when I can book it at a substantial discount so that I can afford the food and drinks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Helpful Staff"
I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. Found the hotel to be a beuatiful 5 star hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were large, nice and clean. Overall a great place to stay, convieniently close to the airport. Only 2 issues, Wi-Fi was not free. (I was a bit surprised as I've stayed at various hotels around the world and majority, even the […] 3-4 star hotels, provide free Wi-Fi). Mini-bar: Be careful as you will get charged for just moving a product in the minibar. I was charged for a product from the minibar which I had not used. It turns out that the minibar has sensors and if you move a product, it automatically gets added to your bill. I managed to get this cleared off my bill without any problems (Very Helpful staff), but just need to be aware. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Choice for Airport Layover"
What can I say - another fabulous visit to the Airport Le Meridien. Proximity to the Airport is best in Dubai. I stay here because of the excellent gym, lap pool, and restaurant pavilion with many choices. Service continues to surprise with things like a complementary ride to the airport in one of their premium fleet cars for business premier guests. […] My only suggestion is to take care to keep up with the infrastructure upgrades. A few areas are showing wear and should be accelerated but nothing too bad. Love this hotel.

"At the airport - but not quite"
Nice place - perhaps getting old. Visable from the airport, but requires hotel car ($15) or angry cab driver to get you there and back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dubai - Airport Hotel"
Expensive (not a value type of hotel). Well managed and I would give higher rank on staff except they charged me for items from mini bar and I specifficlay aked them to remove from my bill. They agreed at the checkout but I noticed more on the statement after I was already away. However, as of now.... they have not made the correction. I absoultely […] never had any item from th mini bar. Lots of fine dining options to choose from. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great service but overpriced and uncomfortable bed"
Excellent service+++. Good location near airport+. Clean rooms+. Very hard bed with feather pillows going flat was a double minus. Not a good nights sleep after a 15 hour flight was a minus. Room service was so-so. Pricey compared to other hotels of similar value is a minus. This was probably my last stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Is this really a Meridien?"
I couldn't believe that I was in a Meridien hotel when I saw the room they gave me. It felt more like a motel in the Midwest. Chairs were covered by ugly pink (stained) covers, the furniture was old and didn't match, the bathroom counter was plastic (not the marble and tile mosaic advertised). When I called the front desk to complain, they brought me […] to a slightly nicer room. But still, this hotel was WAY worse than any Meridien I have seen elsewhere in the world.

"Great for a weekend away"
The hotel has a great location with lots of pools and good restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurants were great. My only gripe was others who stayed there said they had a walk in tile shower with multiple heads but the one in our room was just the tub with shower head. That may not be a concern for others but I would have enjoyed my stay more with one of those. Room service and cleaning […] was superb. The buisness center was great for access to e-mail. We went to two malls while we were there and the hotel gave us transportation to them as well as the gold souk. Just be aware of where you are going and have been it's easy to get lost in all the side streets there. I recommend the desert safari if you have time. riding around in the desert sand was fun.
