I can also second the suggestion of a stay at GH. Club room was a fantastic experience and an upgrade at check in was simply the icing on the cake! The walk to the beach is not without its challenges at times and the hotel would not necessarily be a good choice for a first visit to DXB, but overall, a fantastic place to stay.
I am a little confused by some previous posts. Is the meet and greet only for Golds who are in First, or is it only for Firsts, or is it for all Golds????
