When a friend recently asked for a hotel recommendation in Dubai, I remembered my amazing experience last year at the Doubletree by Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Beach, right on the white sandy beach. This stylish and luxurious highrise property, almost brand new, offers seriously affordable accommodations in the heart of the cool JBR area.
Let’s start with the perfect location, at the end of The Walk, the luxury open-air shopping street mall. It’s filled with fancy boutiques as well as a range of restaurants and shops. It also offers great people and supercar watching. There’s a wide, white, sandy beach right in front of the hotel, along with a beautiful resort pool and a range of watersports. That’s an aspect to Dubai I never realized existed, it’s a tropical beach resort and a lot of Europeans and Asians go there on vacation, like we Americans might go to Hawaii.
Offering the luxury and service of a five-star hotel, with Doubletree prices, I think the Doubletree by Hilton Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is an excellent choice. When you add in the great location and included amenities, it really is quite a bargain. You also get the great Hilton infrastructure and the ability to use and earn Hilton Hhonors points.
