The Park Hyatt Dubai was a steal during Ramadan- I paid about $99 with taxes for my one-night stay. Coupled with my Globalist status and location near the airport, it was a no-brainer.

I had my last complimentary chauffeur via Emirates, so a quick stop by the chauffeur desk got me going to the hotel. I was on the grounds of the hotel in 10 minutes.

The Park Hyatt Dubai has some of the coolest architecture. It definitely feels in place with what you would consider Middle Eastern architecture. Lots of white walls makes this feel very elegant and high-end. I’m a fan.

Check in was quick, and I was informed I had been upgraded to a suite as a Globalist member. Maybe since many of my stays are one-night stays, but I love this new perk. I’ve been upgraded a bunch since the changeover in March. I also was informed that my breakfast benefit could be used in the hotel’s restaurant Café Arabesque.

The Room

I actually loved my first room, a Park Suite. The suite was gigantic, and had a bottle of wine waiting for me. Unfortunately, there were bugs all over the restroom that kept popping up. I think it was due to some renovations going on in the hotel. The hotel, however, responded great to my complaint. I was moved to a nicer suite (Park Terrace Suite), and the hotel manager on duty comped room service dinner for me.

Here are pictures of the first room, a Park Suite.

I was further upgraded to a Park Terrace Suite, which is smaller in square footage, but has a much larger balcony and prettier views of Dubai Creek and the yacht harbor.

My room service dinner was great- and free, though it would have cost over $80 if paying out of pocket.

After all that food, I went to bed. The next morning was a beautiful day in Dubai, if hot, and I wanted to check out breakfast and the hotel grounds.

I love the hotel’s pool.

Some of the hotel’s paths are actually stoned walkways over grass.

The hotel’s gym is large, and features indoor and outdoor areas.

Finally, I had some breakfast at Café Arabesque. I loved the made to order waffles, and the quality of the ingredients used.

Wanting to check out yet another amusement park before my afternoon flight, I checked out around 10 AM. The hotel is one of my favorites in Dubai, and I definitely recommend it for first time visitors. It can be a bit far from activities in Dubai, but it’s actually kind of hard to find a central location in the city.
