Our arrival at the Hilton Hotel located in Al Habtoor City, Dubai was not in any way tiring. We have had a pleasurable eight hours flight with Emirates Airlines. Settling into a comfortable room at the Hilton was just a perfect complement.
Courteous stewards attended to us at the door, took our suitcases from us with a promise they would be delivered to our rooms in a few minutes. Although it was some minutes past four in the morning, the front desk staff were at alert. The keys to our rooms were handed over to us. We got on the elevator as we made our way to our respective floors. My room was located on the fifth floor three floors ahead of Wale Olapade of Tribune and Chuks Nwanne of the Guardian newspapers my companions on the trip organised by Dubai Tourism. Obinna Emelike of BusinessDay was on the same floor as me.
My room was beautifully designed, and it features floor-to-ceiling window and seating areas with sofas and a brilliant city view. For the five nights I stayed in the hotel, I had access to complimentary WiFi, watched the 48-inch HDTV, and used the espresso machine.
The free-standing bathtub was also a great companion. It was a perfect sanctuary to soak a tired body after each day tour of fun places in Dubai. I used the separate shower in the mornings. The dual sink vanity highlight complemented the beauty of the spacious bathroom.
