Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai

1 save

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates • Memory • 

About 10-15 drive from the airport this is a very well maintained hotel with plush rooms and friendly service next to the World Trade Center. Although we visited at Ramadan there was no problem getting food. Worth getting a breakfast inclusive rate since the buffet was excellent. Bonvoy elite members can use the club lounge with free afternoon tea and evening food and drinks. There’s a convenient Carrefour Market convenience store just outside.

Marhaba Lounge A Gates Concourse

1 save

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates • Memory • 

Dubai airport can be a bit of a zoo when it’s busy. If you have a priority pass membership you can access the Marhaba lounge in Terminal 3 where Emirates flights depart. It’s a little hidden, you need to take an elevator up from the duty free area between gates A2 and A3. Good food and drinks spread. No small bottles of water but you can fill up your own bottle easily.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates • Memory • 

If you don't want to pay the fairly hefty admission charge you can get an awesome view of the shark and rays swimming past the enormous acquarium wall on the ground floor of the Dubai Mall and get your shark selfie.
