Four Points hotels are a good-value four star brand managed by Sheraton. There are three in the city so be sure to have the exact name and address of the hotel before embarking in a taxi to avoid being dropped off at the wrong hotel. The three hotels are very different to one another so it is worth reading up to see which one would suit you best before booking. Being located right on Dubai's main road, Sheikh Zayed, the Four Points Sheikh Zayed Road is right in the middle of the action and has stunning views from its roof top pool; on a clear day it is possible to see landmark hotels such as the Atlantis and the Burj al Arab. Otherwise, in terms of comfort, it is a good bet that is suited to a range of clientele from business visitors to couples or groups of friends. Although the hotel welcomes families, there isn't much in terms of children's facilities.
Located on the prominent Sheikh Zayed Road, the hotel is easily accessible from the Financial Centre metro station, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center (DICC), Dubai World Trade Center and the newly opened and largest mall in the Middle East - Dubai Mall which is just few minutes' drive away. The hotel is a 20 minute drive from Dubai International Airport and Jumeirah Beach Park.
Open in 2008, the tinted glass extrerior is in keeping with the Four Points style. Inside, the lobby is fairly small yet bright and contemporary with touches of Emirati influence in the décor and the materials used. The hotel feels small and intimate despite having 43 floors and 384 rooms, putting it in the 'large hotel' category. In a prime location, the hotel has stunning panoramic views over the entire city, right from Jumeirah Beach to the Burj Khalifa and the Satwa area which is a definite highlight of the hotel. There is a pleasant roof top area with a small pool but with a large area surrounding it, which is good for sunbathing fiends (although do be careful in the hotter months as the sun in very intense). The highlight of the hotel comes in right about now, in the shape of the views of the city and especially of the emblematic Sheikh Zayed Road as you have never seen it before.
There are 384 rooms, including Classic rooms, Preferred, Business Suites, and one, two or three bedroom apartments. However, the apartments are rented out to guests staying for a minimum of 21 consecutive days. The main variation is in size and in the kitchenette that the apartments are kitted out with. For example, in the Preferred rooms, there is a large comfortable seating area that lines the floor to ceiling windows and looks out onto the city. The rooms are all decorated in a similar style, stylish clean lines whilst retaining a cosy atmosphere. The rooms are spacious with large floor to ceiling windows which are great to admire the city's skyline. All rooms have the expected mod-cons such as a flat screen television, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and the like. The brown colour scheme is warm and fairly masculine but attractive and slick. The bathrooms are less pleasant than at the Four Points Bur Dubai, where they were large and modern. Here they look fairly traditional kitted out in honey-coloured marble. All rooms have a bathtub and Four Points own-brand amenities. Some rooms also have a balcony (the doors do not open for safety reasons).
The hotel has five food and beverage outlets: Charlie's Pub (12:00 pm-4:00 pm; 6:00 pm-2:00 am), Luigi's Italian Restaurant (6:00 pm-11:30 pm), Pool Bar & Terrace (10:00 am-10:00 pm), Eatery (7:00 am-10:30 am; 12:30 pm-3:00 pm; 7:00 pm-10:30 pm), At Home - Moroccan Dining Room and Lounge (6:00 pm-11:30 pm). The pool bar is pleasant, especially as the sun sets over the skyline. Charlie's Pub serves light snacks and the expected pub food including burgers and chips, and it is situated on the 43rd floor, so a great hang out to watch the skies change over the city, especially when it is too hot to wander onto the roof. Luigi's serves à la carte Italian food as the name gives it away. The Moroccan restaurant is worth a visit too as the food is cooked by a native Moroccan chef and the restaurant looks relaxing and comfortable.
