My Sister and I chose Sofitel the Obelisk to meet in Dubai for 4 nights (I live in Singapore and she lives in the UK). We were lucky enough to secure a great deal through Luxury Escapes for a club room, it included guaranteed early check in of 10am, 100 AED credit to be used in 2 of the restaurants, 100 AED credit for the spa. I arrived first, it's literally a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport, I was there by 5:30am with the Club Lounge not yet open, they had a small table with coffee, juice & pastries, which was a nice touch whilst waiting in reception. Once the lounge was open I was able to wait up there for my Sister & have breakfast and that really was the start of such incredible & personal service. The lounge itself is stunning, it's a 360 degree view of Dubai and early in the morning I got the most fabulous view of sunrise. The breakfast in the lounge is fabulous, a relatively small buffet but quite a arge selection of made to order dishes. I would thoroughly recommend the Obelisk Omelet - smoked salmon & hollandaise sauce and the Wellbeing, egg (scrambles or poached) avocado, feta, pomegrante seeds on toast. When we had booked via Luxury Escapes there was no option to book a Twin room, I didn't think much of it and booked anyway contacting the hotel to request changing from a double to a twin, but due to occupany of the hotel they contacted me the day before to say they couldn't guarantee it. The team in the lounge promised they would try their best & sure enough Charm managed to secure us a twin room which we were in by 10:30am. Afternoon tea, is enormous - we never managed to finish it but a special mention for the scones! Similarly evening canapes were such a wonderful way to start the evening, with a great choice of cocktails, wines (including a very nice Cremant) and spirits. Again the canapes were sizeable - majority of which was served to your table (probably around 5 dishes each evening) which were then supplemented by a small buffet - 3 out of 4 nights it was a lovely cheese selection and on the 4th night a fabulous beef tartare served by the Chef. The pool area is way bigger than we expected & I have experienced in a high rise hotel, there are even semi private cabana's round the outside which would have been lovely if there was a group of you. Restaurant wise we only had a drink one evening in Taiko which was a lovely setting and Sunday lunch in Nine which was huge & great value. The staff were great throughout the hotel even Hatal who delivered more water from the room was delightful and made sure we were fully stocked. My Sister also had a massage which was 20% off between 10am-2pm with no limitation on also using our credit & she raved about the quality. We have stayed in several hotels with Club lounges both in Dubai and the rest of the World & this was without doubt one of the best we have experienced. On our last night the team suprised us with a beautiful cake & handwritten note Erick & his team, Khin, Mariziel, Ayu, Arman, aswin, Ishan & Charm were simply fabuous & it will definitely be our hotel of choice should we decide to 'meet in the middle' again. Thank you everyone - it's a trip the 'Denton Sisters' won't forget for some time - maybe we can get out Brother to join us next time!

It’s a lovely hotel, good choice of food for the room service, modern and clean rooms, connection to the shopping center. We loved the Club Millésime Lounge on the 51st floor with beautiful views. We had lovely breakfast there and Aswin and his team were excellent.

i have a mixed feeling about writing this review , first of all this is my second stay at this hotel , have to say that my first experience was better , but yet again , my second stay was great too , the positives are , comfortable rooms and beds , quality of sleep , breakfast was amazing , service and staff in general are friendly , reason of not giving it the 5 marks is due to the slow check in process , the person who was in charge of my check in was incompetent , it took us almost 20 mins to finalize the checking in , still he didnt send anyone with us to carry the luggage , and once we got into our connected rooms , the door between them was locked ...it took another 15 mins to unlock the door , and last but not least he locked an amount on my credit card without getting back to me or explaining it further , i discovered that he did upon checking out ! , shout out to Mohd who was the manager on duty who was both professional and apologizing , and shout out to the ladies on front desk who were super friendly too

This was the best hotel stay in a long time. There is not a single fault that I can think of. The hotel is pure delight. Advice: take a Luxury room. You need it to get a frontal view on the Dubai downtown and Burj Khalifa. A Deluxe room will not give you that. A Luxury room is more expensive, but it is worth every penny. The view is breathtaking.
