Staycation at Sheraton Mall of the Emirates Hotel, Dubai | #MacroTraveller

This family-friendly hotel in Dubai is located in the shopping district, within a 5-minute walk from Mall of the Emirates and Ski Dubai. Wild Wadi Water Park and Dubai Butterfly Garden are within 5 km. It is a 6-minute walk to the Mall of the Emirates Subway Station, and Sharaf DG Metro Station is an 18-minute walk.

Upon arriving at the hotel, MacroTraveller was greeted by the concierge staff who were super friendly, and one of them accompanied me to the elevators to go up to the lobby which was located on a higher floor, at the check-in I was greeted by another friendly face (I wish I could remember all their names). Check-in went smoothly, and it was quick. The front desk was exceptionally efficient and done with the process within a few minutes. I had a key card and was on the way to the room after a few signatures. The mall hotel is decked with beautiful modern furnishings, from comfortable and spacious rooms to food that can impress your soul.

Sheraton Rooms – Wonderful!

The room itself was extraordinary; the bedroom was phenomenal, with lots of extra comforts and luxury bedding, free chocolates, and cookies, water bottles everywhere. The rooms were quite spacious, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The hotel’s 481 spacious rooms are spread over more than 20 floors, and all are adorned in neutral earthy tones with smart, simple-designed furnishings, and color-coordinated modern artworks.

The Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience assures guests a good night’s sleep under the cozy feather duvet of the bed. Rooms include 40-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi, while the Suites come with 56-inch TVs and plush lounge areas. Modern, luxurious bathrooms are finished in marble with rainfall showers and/or shower/combos, and bathrobes and slippers are provided. The bathroom was impressive with four fixture bathroom comprising both a shower cubicle and a bathtub. Private bathrooms with shower/tub combinations feature rainfall showerheads and designer toiletries. Conveniences include phones, as well as safes and desks.

Food for Thought!

Enjoy a meal at one of the hotel’s dining establishments, which include three restaurants and a coffee shop/cafe. From your room, you can also access a 24-hour room service. The hotel’s restaurant serves a breakfast buffet daily as well as an a la carte Mediterranean menu for lunch and dinner, with an outdoor terrace for al fresco dining. The breakfast is tasty and has good choices of western dishes and Arabic cuisine. The breakfast buffet is excellent with every taste catered for including fruit, yogurt, juices, omelets/eggs/pancakes made to order, various hot food including noodles & rice, pastries, etc. The variety and quality of the buffet at breakfast and lunch are delicious – I ate there often! The coffee or food at the Link Coffee Shop, Vantage Bar’s food is delicious.

The 5th-floor Vantage bar serves cocktails and has hookahs and also comes with terrace views, but the best panoramas are from the 24th-floor rooftop pool and lounge, where food is also served. Twenty Fourth-floor rooftop pools with beautiful panoramic views and a snack lounge. There are two heated, saltwater pools, one for relaxing and the other large enough for swimming laps, as well as a few lounge chairs and stunning city views. Relax with your favorite drink at a bar/lounge or a poolside bar.

Top Features and Amenities – Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates Hotel

Pamper yourself with a visit to the spa, which offers massages, body treatments, and facials. The spa provides a quieter, peaceful retreat and has a steam room, a sauna, massage treatments, and private hot tubs for couples. The Mall of the Emirates is perfect in the neighborhood, even though I am not a shopaholic, I went to the movie and the local Brunswick Sports Club one night, a great place to eat. This hotel also features complimentary wireless Internet access, concierge services, and babysitting/childcare. Getting to the surf and sand is a breeze with the complimentary beach shuttle. Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and express check-in. Event facilities at this hotel consist of a conference center and meeting rooms. Free valet parking is available onsite.

Rooftop Infinity Pool: The jewel in the crown is the rooftop swimming pool, which alone was worth the value. Amazing views would be a restraint. Unlikely to get the kids out of the pool every single time. The rooftop pool was, and the fact that it was adjoined to the Mall of Emirates was very convenient. The views are breathtaking especially watching the sunset; views of the Dubai skyline while sipping a mocktail in complete bliss!

Thanks a lot, to the Sheraton team for your care and hospitality. Staff was courteous and friendly and keen to do everything to make your stay memorable. Highly recommended for an enjoyable stay in Dubai and with short distance to all key attractions in Dubai including the airport whether you use Taxi, Uber or Metro from the Mall of Emirates Station! I would stay here again and highly recommend the Sheraton Mall of the Emirates Hotel to all.
