Surely the selection of hotels in Dubai has become very large for tourists. But one is also always looking for a good price/performance ratio. That’s what you’ll find at Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City and you get a lot of performances there. If you choose another location with the same category, you often have to pay more for it. Thus, the Dubai Festival City is still an insider tip in the city. It is a very modern hotel that is recommended not only for tourists but also for business travelers. Right next to it is the InterContinental Dubai Festival City, which is also very beautiful.
It is a very large hotel with many rooms. Normally the deluxe rooms are sufficient for a holiday in Dubai. These have a size of 34 square meters and are equipped with everything you need. When booking or checking in, you should make sure that you get a room with a view of Dubai Creek. As a rule, the suites are on the higher floors where you then have a better view. But whether you need this as a tourist or not, everyone should decide for themselves. Furthermore, the suites are of course larger at around 87 square meters and you have more space there.

Eating and drinking is always very important during a trip to Dubai. We always recommend booking the Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City with breakfast. That means you can help yourself to the buffet every morning where there is something for everyone. Warm meals are also offered there, so you won’t be hungry again in the afternoon. There is also the possibility that you can book a half board there. As a rule, however, you always have to reckon with a surcharge of 30 to 35 dollars per person and day. There you can help yourself to the buffet in the evening. But right next to the hotel is the Dubai Festival City Mall where there are many restaurants. So there is a particularly large selection and you don’t have to search long. Of course, if you prefer to eat in the hotel, you can do that too.

When booking this hotel you have to know that it is a city hotel. Usually, they don’t have such a big pool. But the Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City is certainly an exception and has a beautiful outdoor pool that easily rivals a beach hotel. The area has been made very large and you can easily spend the whole day there. The pool is open to hotel guests from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Furthermore, this can be heated and cooled depending on the season. Then there is a nice jacuzzi. Of course, the hotel also has a beautiful spa area where you can treat yourself to a massage. During the winter months, it is also worth using the fitness center where the temperatures are very pleasant. For a city hotel, the hotel offers its guests a wide range of services at a good price.

Due to its proximity to Dubai International Airport, the transfer time by taxi is around 15 minutes. Thus, the Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City is certainly recommended for a stopover in Dubai. It is easy to get from the airport to the hotel and back again. From there you also have a good location to see the well-known sights such as the Dubai Mall or the Burj Khalifa. Certainly, there are hotels that have a better location. But there you have to spend more money on an overnight stay.
For tourists who want to save money on vacation and don’t want to do without luxury and comfort, the Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City is certainly an insider tip. There is also direct access to the Dubai Festival City Mall. The hotel is therefore also suitable for a shopping trip to Dubai.
