Hotel Review: Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai , Presidential Suite
I was lucky enough to stay in the Presidential Suite at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers for 3 nights. The 225sq meters of luxury and five-star design certainly kept me happy! With room rates starting at around $3,000 AUD per night, the standard of service is high.
Firstly, the suite had a butler. Mine was called Marshal Thomas. He was amazing. Marshal brought us a bottle of champagne for breakfast. I felt like a princess! The butlers job was to run our errands and be on call 24 hours a day to help with anything we asked. I spent most of my time annoying Marshal by asking him about his old life in India, and how he was liking living in Dubai ( He loves it, if you were wondering) so I think he was secretly pleased we were only residents for 3 nights, we asked too many questions and hindered him from doing mundane things like ironing and cleaning.
The hotel room was large with the entrance way in the middle of a full lobby, opening into the main living area. There was a Grand Piano in the centre of the room ( It’s times like those, that I wish I was cultured enough to know how to play something, anything a piano! ) with full floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city. From memory we would have been around 35 floors up, but the hotel is located in the “town” part of Dubai so the views were not as spectacular as they would have been nearer the beach.
There was a full kitchen, but I have no idea who would spend the time cooking. The 24 hour room service menu was longer than the bible! adjacent to the kitchen was a 10 seater dining table. Excessive, yes! There was only 2 of us staying in the room. 3 if you count the ever-present butler.
There were two king bedrooms on either side of the room, each with their own full bathrooms, complete with spa baths. I’ll be honest, the brown marble was not to my taste, but hey, who’s complaining! The bathroom amenities were supplied by Molton Brown, a luxury London-based bathroom brand.
And for the workaholics out there, the room is complete with a fully functional office space. The office alone, is bigger then my current bedroom!
The Jumeirah Emirates Towers hotel in Dubai was fantastic. You cannot fault the Presidential Suite, it’s a 5 star hotel after all… The food was fantastic, and the hotel amenities were high quality. There is also a club level for those looking for a little more than a regular lead-in room type.
The hotel boasts 15 restaurants, covering casual dining at Et Sushi, and right up to Hakkasan, the first Chinese restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star! I was able to order items from almost any menu in the hotel, along with the room service menu I doubt anyone would go hungry here! Even the most picky of eaters will find something to their liking.
This hotel is most suited to business travellers, families would get more out of staying near the beach. It is near the airport, and just down the road from the Dubai Mall. With more than 20 conference rooms in the complex, they do tend to get booked out with meetings and conventions, and are well suited for large groups. There is free wi-fi throughout, with a dedicated business room if you need it.
