Address Boulevard

Arrival/Check-In: Flying in from Cairo, we landed at 3 a.m., which appears to be the busiest time at Dubai International Airport. The transport train was packed full of passengers with the same intent as us: collect luggage, get through immigration and make it to the hotel so we could get a few hours of sleep before a busy first day. Here the Address Boulevard kicked its service level into high gear by meeting us as we came down the escalator. Both my name and my colleague’s name were displayed on a sign held by two lovely ladies who escorted us through the immigration process. From there they walked us briskly to the baggage carrousel where other support staff had retrieved our bags, and off we were sent in a lovely Audi A8 to the property. Upon arrival we were checked in swiftly and taken to our rooms to get settled for our quick rest before our first meeting at 10 a.m.

Guest Quarters: Obviously, I wanted to get to my room to get some sleep due to the late hour. Room 1021 opened to a long hallway with the bathroom on the left and a table on the right. Further down the hallway were a refreshment center with coffee, a refrigerator and a minibar, but don’t look for a cocktail, as the Address Boulevard has no alcohol in the rooms; it is available in the bars and restaurants. The bathroom featured a large marble tub and a double marble-topped sink and vanity with plenty of room for toiletries. A separate large shower stall offered a powerful and adjustable showerhead. Lorenzo Villoresi Firenze shampoo, shower gel and conditioners complement the bathroom amenities.

In the main bedroom sat a king-sized bed with a white duvet flanked by night tables. By the sliding doors stood a round table to set up your traveling office and, on the opposite side, a sofa and coffee table. A large, flat-screen TV presided on the entertainment credenza. A sweeping patio, overlooking the pool many floors below, proved a great addition to the room.

Services/Amenities: The team at the concierge desk was there to help, and nothing beats the pick-up and transportation to and from the airport. This really made our trip work out perfectly.

The hotel lacks enough restaurant venues; they know this and are in the process of addressing it by adding a few later this year. For now, there is The Lounge at Address, with high walls, grand art and views of Burj Khalifa. It offers a nice place for coffee and afternoon teas/drinks. Take time to admire the property’s beautiful chandeliers throughout.

The main restaurant concept has the feel of an apartment, where guests can choose from the Dining Room, Dressing Room, Collection Room or the family-friendly outdoor terrace. One can also enjoy a drink at the bar in the Library, Games Room and Music Room. These fun and relaxing venues are all on one level of the hotel.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:
◆ Great service throughout our stay
◆ Across from the Address Downtown and Dubai Mall, so most of Dubai is at your fingertips.
