In another thread I mentioned my wife and I were heading back home this summer on Emirates.

What I neglected to mention was that we were planning on staying at a hotel in Dubai the weekend before we left (2 nights - 1 being the night of a 2:30am departure).

Any suggestions for a decent hotel close to the airport where we can have one night of middle-aged fun, and another afternoon/night of sleep, as well as a decent drop off at the Emirates / International terminal?


Sorry if that's not so coherent. We have family in Japan and I haven't had much sleep in the last 24 hours or so.

Cheers,

U.
