There are probably a lot of plats that stay here in order to try and receive their plat benefits. So if on any given night, 100 plats decide to stay in Dubai and want to be on Jumeirah Beach...there is a good chance that most of them will go for the Sheraton. If the Le Meridien and Westin were participating properties...well, you'd see it spread out much better I think.

But who knows, I could be completely off with that assessment.
The big dog IMO for JB is the Grosvenor House. It participates but is usually 50-100 USD more a night than the Sheraton JB.
