What I liked:

Location, location, location!

What the hotel could do better:

Housekeeping - rather shoddy and part of the turndown service is to leave a little card with a bedtime story on the pillow. That's fine if it were new but in my case the card had obviously been reused many many times before and it was on my pillow so that was rather gross.

Reception bungled up my package (club package which provided me with late checkout as I was flying late at night).

Hotel Description

In Dubai the basic hotel choice is between new and old — or, since everything’s really new, between old-fashioned and new-fangled. At The Palace Downtown Dubai you can get a bit of both: the Palace is a classic antique-style hotel compound, in the middle of the Old Town island in Dubai, next door to The Address, as modern a high-rise hotel/residential complex as you could hope to find anywhere. Dubai Mall, the largest shopping center in the Middle East, is also next door, so you’re not exactly roughing it. But within the compound the atmosphere is one of seclusion, whether or not some of the world’s tallest buildings loom in the middle distance.

Over two hundred rooms and suites are hidden away throughout the complex, the most basic ones lavish enough, with private balconies and five-star amenities. Five gradations of suites, though, put most luxury hotels to shame — the “Diplomatic Suites” are just middle-of-the-range, if that tells you anything. Of course we can’t all have Royal or Imperial suites. Fortunately we do have access to the massive central pool, the three restaurants and the Palace spa — when in Dubai….
