If I had a helicopter I wouldn’t need to worry about parking!
In my previous post I explained how I managed to acquire the £35 deal that was available via a price match for a room in the Hyatt Capital Gate that costs £85 a night. The funny thing about this offer is that it gets even better Alhumdulillah.
Hyatt was recently offering to match the existing customers of other chains to their Diamond status. I took advantage of this offer and as a result I was awarded four suite upgrade certificates. Hyatt suite upgrade certificates are really a brilliant option as they let you upgrade to a suite free of charge on a paid stay. As my stay was actually a paid stay I was eligible to use one of my four certificates for up to 7 days.We checked in the hotel a little early around 11.30am, we were escorted to our suite which was on the 23rd floor. The suite was a nice room, however as the hotel is leaning this particular room had quite an interesting configuration. It was diagonal and I had an uncomfortable feeling of being spread out. We called the reception and asked if we can have a different room. The front desk leader Abishek was amazing and said he will prepare for us a better room. In general the whole staff in the hotel were excellent with very high standards of customer service, however Abishek is a pleasant surprise for a person who loves his job!
We happily agreed to wait for the room to be cleaned and Oh boy! we weren’t disappointed. Our new suite was amazing! It was a proper suite and bigger than my entire flat in the UK. It had a living room, a bedroom, a guest bathroom and a master bathroom with a jacuzzi. Excellent high quality amenities and furnitures. I have stayed in many nice hotels and have stayed in suites before, however I think the style of this room is my favourite so far. I enjoy modern and clean lines which is what it was.
As a bonus due to the lack of a lounge we had a FREE minibar included. If we were non Muslims, we would have a blast with all the alcoholic drinks, however as good Muslims we stuck to enjoy our rounds of sodas and juices. Plus my husband’s favourite mix of snacks and chocolates. 🙂
The room had amazing views of the sea and the private man-made island where the royals of Abu Dhabi have “small” palaces. There was no problem with traffic but I loved watching all the cars on the main road. The curtains were electric, which was a nice touch, once I figured how to use them!
My favourite room, was the bathroom. 🙂 I think this is the biggest bathroom I have seen in a room, literally as big as a standard hotel room in the UK. The jacuzzi was awesome, though I felt bad filling the whole tub with water. And of course a TV because we wouldn’t want to be in the jacuzzi and miss our favourite show!Alhumdulillah this was an awesome trip and I can’t complain about my stay at the Hyatt. Even the average rooms are nice and specious in this hotel. Somehow my husband managed to gain access in one of them so I took some pictures for you.
This is a business hotel so they do have a small swimming pool which is nice and quite, they also have a nice spa area and you can have couples treatment too. :)If you are visiting Abu Dhabi then I would totally recommend you stay a night here. Apart from being an iconic building and architectural masterpiece they have an excellent hotel, amazing views and brilliant customer service.
