To the point Here's my review of Marriott Bonvoy's Element Me'aisam Dubai hotel, suitable for long budget stays in Dubai for Expo 2020.

This hotel was visited during the COVID-19 pandemic. The experience can therefore be different from a normal stay.


Booking - Element Me'aisam Dubai

Element Me’aisam – Dubai is a category 3 Marriott Bonvoy hotel. A night paid for with points goes for between 15,000 and 20,000 points depending on the season.

I preferred to keep my points and pay for my stay with my Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card given the rate I got.

Get Marriott Bonvoy points

The best way to earn Marriott Bonvoy points to stay for free at over 7,000 hotels worldwide is to be a Marriott Bonvoy American Express (and/or Marriott Bonvoy Business American ExpressMD Card) cardholder.

In addition to the great welcome bonus on both cards, you’ll earn 2 points per dollar on all purchases and 5 points per dollar at Marriott locations.

And each year, you’ll earn a free hotel night certificate (35,000 point value) as well as 15 Elite nights towards your Marriott Bonvoy status.

Alternatively, you can earn Marriott Bonvoy points with American Express Membership Rewards credit cards. You can transfer Membership Rewards points into Marriott Bonvoy points at a rate of 5:6 (50,000 Membership Rewards points = 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points).

For example, with the American Express Cobalt Card, you earn 6 Marriott Bonvoy points for every $1 in purchases at grocery stores, restaurants, bars, convenience stores and home delivery. It is one of the best credit cards in Canada for travellers. Find out why here.

My stay at Element Me'aisam Dubai

Arrival - Element Me'aisam Dubai

During my stay in Dubai, I had a rental car, which was very useful to go to different appointments. Element Me’aisam – Dubai offers free parking.

The hotel is a “mirror copy” of the Aloft Me’aisam Dubai Hotel(which I also reported on here): the parking, the terraces and the pool are identical.

I was happy to see the green tone decor characteristical of other Element hotels like the Element by Westin Bali Ubud (which I loved).

I gave my Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card as collateral and to pay for my stay there.

With the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card, you earn 5 points per dollar for all your spending at Marriott Bonvoy hotels.

This is the best credit card to have if you stay at Marriott Bonvoy hotels frequently.

Room - King bed - Element Me'aisam Dubai

The room I was offered was a studio: despite my requests through the chat and my Titanium status, I did not get an upgrade. This is the room you can book with points.

Element Hotels target long-stayers and families. Each room has a washing machine and cooking facilities.

Some oriental fruits as a welcome gift were waiting for me in this room.

Several spots allow you to easily isolate yourself. However, I definitely preferred the atmosphere of the Aloft Me’aisam Dubai. There is no bar or music here.

Gym - Element Me'aisam Dubai

Due to sanitary restrictions, only 2 people could access the gym during my visit. The gym is smaller than the one available at Aloft Me’aisam Dubai.

Breakfast - Element Me'aisam Dubai

At Element Me’aisam Dubai, due to COVID-19, there are people serving you at the buffet in the hotel’s lobby level restaurant.

The choice is rather varied and the omelettes are excellent.

If you make purchases in the bars and restaurants of your hotel, do not forget to charge these expenses to your room bill. So you’ll earn up to 17.5 points per dollar based on your Marriott Bonvoy status!

And when you check out, pay with your Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to earn 5 points per dollar!


I preferred the Aloft Me’aisam Dubai hotel to the Element Me’aisam Dubai hotel in this article. Especially since the Aloft hotel is of a lower category (so cheaper in points). The atmosphere is more lively (and it seems to me that the rooms are better insulated at the Aloft than at the Element).

However, if you need an option for a longer stay, and if you need to have access to a washing machine or something to cook yourself dinner, it will be more interesting to stay at the Element.

Since it’s a category 3, a night can be booked from 15 000 points (count between 60 000 and 80 000 points for a stay of 5 consecutive nights thanks to the option“Stay 5 nights for the price of 4 by using Marriott Bonvoy points“).
