To the point I'll end my series of hotel reviews with the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai, ideally located for business travelers as well as tourists.

Pour rappel voici la répartition de mes nuits dans les hôtels de la chaîne Marriott:

The latter was added along the way, having had to extend my stay in Dubai for business meetings. I chose it for its location close to the center, but also to the airport.

Open since 2014, the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai is the ninth Sheraton in Dubai!

Booking at Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai

Le Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai fait partie de la catégorie 5 des hôtels Marriott Bonvoy.

Pour réserver mon séjour, j’aurais pu soit utiliser 30 000 points Marriott Bonvoy par nuit (tarif basse saison), ou un certificat d’une nuit gratuite, ou bien payer 109 $ par nuit.

Sheraton Dubai Rate

J’ai choisi cette seconde option: en temps de COVID-19, les tarifs des hôtels sont vraiment attractifs, ce qui permet d’éviter d’utiliser des points. Bien sûr en utilisant ma Carte Marriott BonvoyMC American ExpressMD afin d’obtenir 5 points par dollar.

Location

Le Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai est situé dans le “Trade Centre”, centre des échanges qui inclus le quartier des finances (DIFC) situé à quelques minutes de l’hôtel en taxi.

L’hôtel est idéalement situé par rapport à l’aéroport, puisque j’y étais en même pas 15 minutes le jour de mon départ de Dubai.

Around the hotel

L’emplacement du Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai est très intéressant (quoi qu’on ne puisse faire beaucoup sans le taxi).

À pied, quelques très bons restaurants et un Carrefour Market.

Vous aurez l’embarras du choix. En une dizaine de minutes, vous pourrez atteindre autant les plages publiques de La Mer, le Musée Etihad, Al Seef, Al Fahidi, ou vous rendre aussi au Dubai Frame et Dubai Garden Glow tout juste à côté (possible avec une petite marche à pied).

Bien sûr le Dubai Mall est tout proche aussi pour ceux qui souhaiteraient magasiner. Le City Walk avec The Green Planet est aussi sympathique pour se promener.

Lobby of the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai

À mon arrivée au Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai, comme à chaque hôtel, un valet m’accueille chaleureusement et s’occupe tout de suite de mes valises. Le hall de l’hôtel n’est pas aussi grand que les 3 précédents hôtels où j’ai séjourné.

Il est toutefois très agréable, lumineux et invitant avec son café à l’entrée, ses grands canapés en velours. La décoration intérieure est originale. Le hall est éclairé par 3 lustres en forme de grandes boules dorées. Le salon est délimité par une haie d’herbe et l’on retrouve une fontaine d’eau vers les ascenseurs.

Namely, the hotel received an award with its Green Key certification, the leading standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operations in the tourism industry.

This implies that the hotel has made significant efforts to reduce its energy and water expenditure, to reduce its waste and to improve the quality of the indoor environment. We can therefore understand the link with interior design.

At the entrance, there’s a first counter for concierge requests. The staff also checks your temperature with a thermal scanner. Then, there are three wooden reception counters, topped with glass walls. The white marble gives a feeling of brightness.

The coffee bar has an original structure made of wood, mixed with Arabic motifs called Mashrabiya, and a material which looks like steel and which goes up intricately to the ceiling.

The café offers take-out meals. Several small lounge areas are available in the hall. Near the bay window, in front of the café, or in the raised part of the hall. There’s no shortage of choices. There is also a central community table, where you can use computers.

My Suite at the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai

Living room

When I entered my Suite, I found a wardrobe with integrated lighting. There’s also a safe in there. Next, the coffee and tea station with a Nespresso machine and a teapot. Opposite this piece of furniture is a toilet.

The living room is big, comfortable. It includes a large corner sofa with a coffee table, a chest of drawers with a wall-mounted TV, a corner armchair, and a round table with two chairs.

As I was alone, I didn’t take much advantage of the living room; however I really liked the layout of this Suite with its cream and purple touches.

You can choose to keep the sliding doors open or not. This bedroom is styled similarly to the living room, is soft, classic shades.

I was disappointed that the office chair was still not the right height for me to sit and work on my computer. So I sat on the chair next to the coffee table, not having found an easily accessible electrical outlet in the living room.

On each side of the bed, there is a wall outlet and a digital switch to control the lighting in the Suite as well as a reading light.

On one side of the bed is a telephone with a Bose clock radio.

Because of COVID-19, it is difficult to show you all the dishes, since I wasn’t allowed to lift the lids myself. Here is a nice overview of the stations:

The Sheraton Club Lounge

The lounge is reserved for Marriott Bonvoy members with Platinum or Titanium status, or when the room you book comes with access to the Lounge.

This one’s worth it! The food served was delicious and the service, professional. No buffet here, but table service. A closed office with two computers and printers is also available. You can go in there without needing to book.

The fitness room

I quickly entered the room but as it was crowded, I didn’t take any pictures thinking I would come back. It has a view on the outside and is brightly lit. Many machines are present, it’s a very nice room to work out in.

My overall impression of the Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai

Le Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai est un très bel hôtel idéalement situé puisqu’à une dizaine de minutes de beaucoup d’activités. Il convient très bien aux familles et voyageurs d’affaires.

Le personnel est très courtois et chaleureux. J’étais reçue au Salon Club Sheraton par mon nom. J’ai beaucoup aimé mon expérience à cet hôtel.
