Rated 4 out of 5 by Omani1 A great hotel
As I'd read in other reviews the staff at the Dubai Sheraton Creek hotel are fantastic. A real credit to management. The club floor room was excellent and and it was a great short break away. The only reason I didn't give an overall 5 stars was because of booking/charging issues - on each day of the stay we spent 10 -15 minutes trying to correct mistakes which is just a bit of a downer on a holiday. Staff were both helpful and very apologetic in correcting things, so no complaints there, but still the problems affected our total experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJSpain Great hotel for business and short stays
Highly recommendable due to its central location and close to airport,its ideal for business & short trips. Staff very welcoming and a choice of three restuants (Italian/Indian and Japanese), there is also an English Pub as well as a comfortable lobby area where you can order coffee and cakes.
Check-in staff are most welcoming and helpful and hotel offers free town car airport transfers for Club Executive room bookings and you get access to the business lounge too so worth paying the extra.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stephen4976 Disappointed by Stay
A great brand, but this hotel did not live up to expectations. Club Room perk of free shuttle service: driver never arrived at Dubai Airport, and the front desk would not compensate for alternate tax service. No manager on duty when arrived. Additionally, I had to email numerous times to get SPG stay credit--and points awarded were 1/2 of stay rate. No wifi in Club Guest Room, and very slow LAN internet.
On the other hand, the location is an easy 10 minute drive from the airport and serves good (yet predictably expensive) food.
Would not stay again, given other Starwood choices in the vicinity. Cannot recommend this hotel past on experience.

Our room with BEAUTIFUL creek view, specious n contemporary interior design, peace n cozy, sunlight are coming through the big glass windows, without going to the pool, you can just quietly relax with the sunbathing on your couch. We had just stayed one night, but we are truly impressed with such an unique experience!!!
Will come back Soon

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ali88 Great Location and Classic Look
The hotel is beautiful and in a wonderful location. I had a Club Creek View room, which was nice and spacious with lovely views of the Creek. The floor to ceiling windows allow you to enjoy this key feature. I personally like the classic look especially when it is complemented with modern ammenities such as flat screen TV, high speed internet connection etc...

This was my second stay in this hotel after the renovation. I commented positively on the first stay and I had only one comment regarding the food at the Club Lounge. The hotel responded to my comment saying they will see what they can do. To be honest, I get a lot of these answers and in most cases they are just that: answers. Nothing happens and things stay the same. Not this time ... not at Sheraton Creek. I was very happy to see they added a lot of new items to the breakfast menu. Sheraton Creek staff really know how to make you feel special. Where else you comment and then you see changes happening? This made me feel like a million dollar. Thank you Sheraton Creek.

A fantastic place to relax, with respectful and friendly, professional staff. The rooms are spotless, and well serviced. The pool area, is again immaculate, with excellent change areas, and very relaxing. The hotel is by the creek, which is picturesque. The access, by minibus, to the Emirates Mall, was excellent, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos Perfect Example of its Brand
Set in the very urban context of Deira, this hotel nevertheless has a lovely location overlooking the Dubai Creek and more the atmosphere of a resort than a business hotel. I personally don't mind the "period" style of the Atrium Lobby - with fountain and Arabesque plasterwork ...it felt quite in line with vernacular style. The lobby level Club could be a lesson to similar facilities in other properties - smooth and welcoming at check-in, well-stocked and delicious at breakfast and Happy Hour. Beautifully and newly decorated.
SPG Recognition was very good, I received a personal welcome email prior to arrival with an offer for a complimentary airport pick-up which I took advantage of and much appreciated. I was upgraded to an executive suite with an exceptionally large and comfortable bath room that included a two-person oval tub and beautiful. marble. As well as a surprise in-room amenity, I received my usual points and, delightfully, a complimentary upgrade to full breakfast in the Vivaldi Restaurant. This was exceptional with omelette station, various ethnic breakfast items and lovely outdoor terrace seating overlooking the Creek.
While it is true that some aspects of the decor and some furnishings are dated, I don't feel this takes away at all from the total positive experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IntlTradeAdvisor You are a "somebody"
I have just completed an almost three week stay at this property and need to first acknowledge several staff members who where spectacular in making my stay comfortable. From the Club Lounge and led by Jocelyn - there is Ivy, Mary Ann, Klaudia, Francois and Tabrez. Perhaps the best team I have ever encountered anywhere! Thank you for making my stay so special. There is also Lukas, Front Desk Manager and Saskia, Director of Guest Services; Evelyn, Ambassador for Unicef and Stephan, General Manager all who personally engaged themselves in my stay. Of course there are many others who where champions in their own way.
To the readers of this review, the staff are friendly, attentive and genuinely wish to make your stay a memorable one.
Hotel and facilities - the hotel is fully equipped with several dining facilities. My favourite is the Italian Restaurant - Vivaldi which looks over the Creek. There is Hatta on the lower level - a coffee shop with both an indoor and outdoor seating area. Several other types of cuisine are also available at the hotel.
The spa is also quite good. Try a massage, sauna or just hang out on one of the loungers around the pool. The hotel also has an excellent fitness facility and if running or jogging is what you enjoy, the marina boardwalk is immediately behind the hotel.
The room - extremely comfortable and efficient. The rooms are not huge as some hotels are today, but these are all newly renovated and extremely comfortable. Of course the room comes with the "Sheraton Sweet Sleeper" bed which you just fall into.
Final comment - I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone -it is centrally located and only 15 minutes to Sheikh Zayed Road; 10 minutes from Deira City Centre; next door to the Chamber of Commerce and the Head office of Emirates NBD Bank and central to many of the Government of Dubai offices. PS there is also a golf course very nearby - Dubai Creek Golf and the Souk is not far.
A hotel you will not go wrong with!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GVLreview Great Restaurant selection and friendly club lounge
I spent 4 nights at hotel.
The Ambassador services met my needs for my out of standard arrival and departure times. The first welcome in club lounge was friendly and supportive ( thanks Jocelyn & Mary Ann ) and continued throughout my stay.
I ate in the Japanese fish restaurant - excellent, thanks Desy, At the Indian restaurant Ashani, (recently refurbished) I had a modern Indian meal as advised by chef Vishal Rane recently from the mint leaf London - not too shabby that either. The Friday brunch at Vivaldi was an epic 5 hour event with a wide ranging variety of tasty and well prepared foods on offer, make the most of it and pace yourself to sample the specialities e.g scallops and fois gras.
Room was fine though no upgrade available. Complementary airport transfers worked perfectly.
All in all would certainly recommend the hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DubiousinDubai Many positives and a huge negative
We enjoyed the excellent location of the hotel and general ambiance of a Sheraton. The service and attention were excellent, especially the conceige who was very helpful in providing details of what we should be doing given our short stay.
However, as a frequent international traveller and SPG member, I was very disappointed that a tier one hotel such as a Sheraton would not be totally honest wih me in their dealings. We had been assured that there would be taxi service available for our 4:00 a.m. departure. I had explicited said twice that I did not want the hotel's limo service which cost much more than I was willing to pay for the short ride to the airport. In spite of making my preferences clear, when we got to the curb it was the hotel service which cost us about four times the rate of a cab. At 4:00 a.m., I felt we were in mo position to refuse the tranisportation.
I was formally a Gold Level SPG member, often flirting with Platium status but my loyalty to the brand wasa abandoned when I refused credit for a stay I had clearly paid almost the going rate for. This last incident does not respect for SPG.

Just returned from 5 night stay with yous. Service was fantastic from the moment we were collected from the airport until we were dropped off for return flight....staff throughout hotel were amazing. Especially poolside were nothing at all was too much trouble. Club room was definitely worth paying extra for only thing was no one explained happy hour where u have 2 hours free alcoholic drinks until evening before we left. Saying that having free breakfast and snacks and airport transfers were still great value for money.location perfect for getting out and about with metro station only 5-10 minutes walk. Will definitely be returning..thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by Razzou Good Location & Maintaining Standards (mostly)
Nice location and a well-maintained hotel, in facilities and service standards, although oldish like other Dubai's on-creek hotels. SPG Recognition is excellent; I was always upgraded to a creek-view room and got a bottle of wine for my elite status. A spacious welcoming terrace with a view; much enjoyed it with F&B during the less-hot evenings.
But I continue to experience some draw-backs: wait at the reception to check-in, check-out or simply to get your room-card re-validated. Refurbishment work on-going in a room next to mine; although noise was controlled, the dust extended from that room’s entrance to mine; even on carpet till elevator.
