Among Dubai hotels, the Radisson Blu Hotel on Deira Creek
stands out for a unique amenity: balconies in each and every room, a luxury to be found in no other Dubai city hotel. Grab a seat (all balconies are furnished) and take in the views of the sunset over the Dubai skyline. (And why not video stream the image to friends back home with your free Internet access
?) Perched on the banks of Deira Creek in the heart of Old Dubai, the Radisson Blu
is within walking distance to the city's cultural treasures: traditional souks, the pretty waterfront, the Dubai Museum. Dubai Airport is only seven kilometers away. And when it comes time to chow, you won't be wanting for good food here. The hotel has 16 food and beverage outlets to whet your appetite. Fitness buffs will also appreciate the tennis court, squash courts, and two hi-tech gyms with cardio equipment. There's also an outdoor swimming pool with a large sundeck overlooking Deira Creek.
