Default AD Hotel Accomodation near airport

Good morning everyone

Can someone please recommend a good hotel near the Abu Dhabi airport - we arrive at some ungodly hour on Monday morning so dont want to do to much in the way of travelling to a hotel - just somewhere to sleep for a few hours.

Thanks

The whole thing is a total mess to be honest - everything is happening so quickly and it seemed to go belly up when they advised my husband that they would arrange his trip and hubby got back saying that he would like to bring me along (going on the weekend instead of just for two days there and back) - as it would be the only chance to look around before we have to make a decision - they said that was fine but then your weekend came along and we now have to wait til tomorrow - I know it all sounds complicated and it is very frustrating but we must just go with the flow for the moment if we want to do this.

Thanks everyone - I think we will be paying for the first night and its only a few hours we need as we arrive at 00h35 which is a bind but cant be helped - will check out the hotels given and hopefully get something. Thanks ever so much

00.35 isn't too bad - will only be 9.30pm for your body clock remember.

If you haven't already - book now, like immediately as it's conference season in AD. One of our directors is staying in the Royal Meridian AD from Monday at 1800 Dhs per night and that (according to him) was the cheapest he could get in AD.

BTW, number for the airport hotel is +971 2 575 7377.
