“My Graduation @ Holiday Inn”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Hello everyone ,,,
I held my graduation party in the Holiday Inn-Abu Dhabi on March 9th,2012. The whole team in the hotel was cooperative. The Al Dana ballroom was a very nice venu for my 40 guests and the food taste & variety was great. Price was also a major advantage and the service during my party was to the level. Marisa Cantuba, the F&B Admin Assistant was available all the time and assissted us a lot. We had fun that night and we all really enjoyed :)
I truely recommend the Holiday Inn for your party whether it's a graduation, birthday, or even an engagement :-)

Dear Guest,

We are pleased to have been able to make your Graduation Party a memorable one!

The unique oval shaped Al Dana room is popular for meetings & parties, & as you mentioned, Holiday Inn pricing is competitive. And when you do also take into account our friendly service, & great food quality, I believe we make a fantastic value proposition!

I do hope that we will have the opportunity to host more parties & dinners for you & your friends.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us your valued feedback.

Sincerely,

Stayed here recently for four nights on a business trip. Check in was welcoming and expedient, rooms modern, spacious and spotless. The bathroom also spacious and spotless. Comfortable beds and pillows. Staff were extremely courteous and professional. Restaurant and room service tariffs were reasonable. Well located halfway between the airport and the CBD.
My only complaint would be the charge for internet service, always quite steep in hotels in the UAE, but overall no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

A first class operation all the way. Professional and friendly service, very modern and clean facility, big rooms, good food and an outdoor sheesha lounge - cannot beat it.

I had one minor complaint concerning the less than bright desk lamp and it was replaced with a very bright lamp within minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for one in the front so you can look out at the amazing, crooked skyscraper and the angular US E...

Stayed at this Holiday Inn for 2 night for business. The STAFF were very nice, friendly and professional. They all went out of their way to make sure everything was good. The fruit plate was a nice touch in my room. The rooms were very comfortable. the breakfast buffet was great. The waiting staff were so nice and helpful. Especially the Hussein at the Lemon Tree. I will definitely stay there again.

I recently stayed for 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn on Airport Road Abu Dhabi. The hotel is very well appointed a provides a perfect sanctuary for those traveling on business or for those visiting he City. The food is superb and the staff polite and attentive.

From the buffets to the a la carte and them nights in the Lemon Tree, the cuisine and service is first class.

The General Manger is a perfect host, supported by a top class team.

My favourite Maitre D was Antonio and his staff in the Lemon Tree, Eka, Michelle and Hussein. Thank you for making my staff so pleasant. See you again soon.

Room Tip: The views from the front of the hotel are superb. Corner rooms are first class.
