Amazing view. The staff are polite and they have great service and food. Worth the money. Although the gym is lacking. The spa and restaurants make up for it. If you are in abudhabi it is a great place to spend a couple of nights as it is in the city centre

I spent three nights here, rooms are good in size and nice toward sea view. The tower is so narrow, ten rooms in each floor. Service mid and normal reception is so bad, restaurant is good. The location is bad, no beaches only the cornich which need 5 min walking. Nothing near hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in the first quarter 2012, the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche (part of Capital Plaza building) is ideally situated in the heart of the city, close to the seafront and the business and financial center. It enjoys a privileged location on Corniche Road, one of the most prestigious district. The maritime centre Port Zayed, the Souk, famous for its rugs and Dhow Harbour, home to the traditional transport and fishing boats which still take to the waters of the Arabian Gulf, are all a short distance from the hotel. The hotel offers all the services of a world-class French establishment, blending its origins with the best of the Oriental influences: butler service and executive lounge access (Club Millesime) for club rooms and suites, and the famous MyBed concept and Bose wave in all rooms. Each of the rooms offer breathtaking views over city and Arabian Gulf. Additionally, the hotel offers 3 signature restaurants and 3 bars, a pool, a spa and wellness space and 9 meeting rooms. A ballroom can also welcome up to 1000 visitors and therefore host any kind of events. ... more   less
