Concierge.com's insider take:

The Moorish-style Park Hyatt's soothing cream, beige, and ocher interiors offer a welcome respite from the brash decor of most hotels in Dubai; even the staff is clad in spotless white. All 225 rooms—each with a balcony or terrace—in this low-rise (for here) five-floor hotel face the Creek and are a comfortable minimum 560 square feet. Ask for one of the 1130-square-foot Terrace Suites, which include two large balconies; their prime positioning at the corner of the hotel gives unparalleled views of the Creek and the Marina. The Park Hyatt's open-plan bathrooms are exceptional, with huge freestanding pod baths and rain showers. The Amara spa and pool area is a secluded oasis lined with tall palm trees, while the Levantine Café Arabesque serves an excellent traditional Arabic cold meze buffet for only $16 per person. The location, on the Deira side of the Creek, adjacent to the Dubai Creek Golf and the glitzy Yacht Club, is a good spot if you are interested in the older part of the city (or golf) but not so convenient for most of the city's nightlife, restaurants, and shops.

This "quiet oasis" next to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club mixes "Mediterranean-style white stucco and blue-tiled domes" with Moorish and Arab influences. A balcony or patio in every room supplies views to Dubai Creek that are "fantastic." "Staff are polite and welcoming." Traiteur serves wines from Australia, Europe, and the United States.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Dubai's exponential growth has turned the desert city-state into the world's most glamorous construction site, but it has also created noise and visual pollution around many of the luxury hotels. The Park Hyatt, an elegant 225-room oasis overlooking the wide Persian Gulf channel, is an exception. The blue-domed, whitewashed exterior conceals a New Age contemporary interior with an Arabian Zen ambience. Dubai's population is 80 percent expat, and one senses that the friendly but inexperienced staff are recent arrivals to both the emirate and the hotel industry. However, you can't beat the waterfront location, a short distance from the gold souk and the original banking district. With an excellent spa and a quiet terrace next to a small luxury yacht marina, and unusual for the absence of a nightclub, it's the choice of a mature, discreet clientele. —2006 Hot List
