We checked into the Hilton Jumeirah Beach last night on a points award (needed to burn before the devaluation). The service has been excellent so far and as a diamond member we were upgraded to a very nice suite overlooking the water and the Palm Island. The suite is not a huge suite but it is very nice, and the view is fantastic. The location is really great as there are shops and restaurants all over the place. We ate dinner at 10pm last night in a very nice Lebanese restaurant across from the hotel. It is really nice to see people walking and driving all over the place at 11pm on a week night. This morning we will be checking out the lounge for breakfast and doing as much sightseeing as we can over the next couple of days.
