A quick Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi Downtown Review

Posted on September 13, 2016 by in Hotel Reviews

Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi DowntownThis was my second Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi Downtown Review and given it was still summer season the rates were much lower this time. I liked that hotel for its great location in ‘old’ Abu Dhabi near the Corniche and the friendly staff. It’s a great mid-range choice.

The staff was uber friendly and had no trouble giving me a room at 1 PM. As a IHG Platinum, they’d be ready to give me free valet parking (I had a car rented), a free alcoholic drink and an upgrade to a large suite.

Interestingly enough the front desk offered to charge me in full at the time of check-in. It was optional but this is a practice that seems to have spread more (like at the Radisson Libreville).

I loved the modern, clutter free and functional design of the suite. It was refreshingly cold and the free Internet easy to connect (though it was capped at under 2 Mbit).

Abu Dhabi temperatures aren’t fun in summer with 100+ degrees and high humidity but after dark it’s reasonable enough to walk from the hotel to the Corniche and the eateries without a heart attack.
