Jumeirah Emirates Towers

Arrival/Check-In: If there is any hotel with a grand entrance, Jumeirah Emirates Towers is it. The atrium lobby gives a true feeling of space, something I’m not accustomed to, given my frequent New York City hotel stays. As you enter the hotel, you can’t help but notice The Lobby Lounge in the middle, filled with patrons enjoying drinks and snacks. The desk staff checked me in and escorted me to my suite. Multiple glass elevators toward the back of the lobby speed guests to their rooms.

Guest Quarters: I entered my suite to discover a welcome gift tower of sweets and dates (my favorite). I almost felt guilty traveling alone in Dubai since I wasn’t able to share these little treasures. My suite offered views of the financial district, and I was glad to see the hotel was within walking distance of the World Trade Center, as I’d be frequenting the Arabian Travel Market trade show during my stay.

My living room was put together with the business traveler in mind. The desk held all the necessities as well as multiple charging stations. A large table in the space behind the couch could easily be used as a small conference area. Add the wall-to-wall windows in the bedroom, and it is obvious why Dubai remains one of the top sought-after destinations for business and leisure travelers around the globe.

Services/Amenities: With 400 guestrooms and suites, this property offers everything, whether guests are here for business or leisure: 16 restaurants and nightlife venues, complimentary access to Wild Wadi Waterpark, a private beach, eight meeting rooms, a ballroom, the Biz Hub and outdoor venues for meetings and conferences. You do not need to leave the hotel. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Most importantly, a good night’s sleep is guaranteed.

TOP TAKEAWAYS

◆ Have dinner at The Rib Room, with the best selection of meat and seafood.

◆ Try the Talise Spa; my Happiness treatment included two 30-minute treatments of my choice: head, neck and scalp massage and a facial mask.

◆ The buffet breakfast serves an incredible selection of cuisines; fresh food and fast service are ideal before your morning rush to meetings.

◆ Relax in the flotation pool, where you float in saltwater while listening to soothing music.

◆ The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to Dubai Mall, Wild Wadi Waterpark and Zero Gravity Beach Club.

Down to Earth: Find Your Element for the Ultimate Customized Spa Experience at Chuan Spa

After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
