Rated 5 out of 5 by Dmilsi Another Great Stay
Since my first review last year, I've stayed here several more times. I visit Dubai often and the Fairway is now often my fist choice in SPG properties to stay at based on its offering very reasonable rates, a great location meters from the Metro, and friendly service. In addition, the platinum recognition is very good (upgrades, but one must choose between breakfast and amenity points). While the pool is small, I like the gym as its equipment meets my needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ryanm84 Would NOT go back
It's not that it's a horrible hotel, but it should not be allowed to be called a Le Meridien. When I walked in, I was instantly engulfed in cigarette smoke. You can smoke in the lobby, it's disgusting. Then I got to my not so nice room. It was big, but the bed was not what I'm used to for a Le Meridien. The most foolish part about the room was that in order to turn the front hall lights off, you had to kill the master switch, which turns off all the plugs. It's the most ridiculous design. All in all, it's not the worst hotel, but I've stayed in nicer for $50 a night. Can't believe Starwood let's this place be associated with them. Not a good representation of their brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MrademSPGPlatinumAsia Warning: No SPG Recognition
No Points + No Stay Eligibility + No SPG Recognition = No Return. I didn't see the small disclaimer that Starwood has on its website for this. I believe it should be more prominent. Given the plethora of choices in Dubai, I will never return to this property again.
Separately, the hotel is very poor. It is located in a strip mall; features a very small pool, dark room, poor customer service - particularly at the reception. Twice I had to walk around the hotel to look for someone to buy a coffee or drink from. The gym was not bad and had decent equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YBS1 Friendly service
We have stayed in this hotel many times and would recommend the extraordinarily friendly service. It is like having another home.
Joseph, the manager always replies promptly to our requests and makes sure my requirements are met before I arrive ( I am allergic to feathers so they have to change pillows and duvets).
The receptionists always have a friendly welcome, no matter what time of day or night. The porters are quick to deliver baggage and any other service required, (door opening, helping with shopping to the room,taxis etc).
I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone who values good service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by daveo01 club floor facilities
was disappointed with availability of hors d'oeuvres/evening cocktails as confirmed in my booking. i was of the understanding there was a club lounge and this was one of the reasons I booked this rate. in fact evening cocktails consisted of a 100 dirham bar credit and hors d'oeuvres was a plate of potato crisps. guests 3 doors down the hall (room 310) had a late party with the door open on my first night and sleeping was impossible. I called reception 3 times until 2.30am to report the noise. I wasn't impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Razzou A good-value small-gem hotel
Granted, it may not suit all. But, depending on its availability, offers great value most of the time. Location can be very convenient; not far from the airport and close to Creek Golf club, Irish Village and Citi Center Mall. And its boutique-style approach can give you a cozy feel, particularly given its small size and friendly staff. Hotel Manager Joseph always excellent in recognizing my Platinum status and adding a valued personal touch. What one may lack in in-hotel facilities is compensated with free access to the larger pool, gym & sauna at their near-by sister hote; which also have great resturants if you get tired of the "fairly-good" room service at Fairway.
Just pity they do not offer SPG points and do not participate in SPG promotions.
