Hotel's Favourite
I am sure that this review will inevitably make it more difficult to secure a room but people need to know about the incredible amd amazing an experience a hotel can create. Granted I am an Accor loyalty member but the moment I came I was greeted by management and all the staff impeccable. Service was top notch at all times. Staff like Madonna were constantly finding new ways to improve my stay. It was the best hotel stay I have had in years.. on top of that there is a butler service included for certain rooms and incredible 180 degree views from the rooms.. I love this hotel and I plan to make this my new home away from home.. in addition (the loccitane spa was fabulous.. restaurants were extraordinary as well.. we ate at Teicko and loved the Asian flair. Thank you Sofitel..

Had a great time at Sofitel Obelisk, Dubai. The breakfast buffet was good and the service was excellent. A special mention to Alaa and Satish who provided a commendable service during breakfast time, with their teamwork and efficiency. The only drawback was the room windows were really dirty, so we were unable to enjoy and take photos of the beautiful skyline visible from our room.
