I'd recommend FS for a city stay in Abu Dhabi.

As for Abu Dhabi, the only features that I find good about the RC are the view of the mosque and the RC lounge.
For me, it fails on all other aspects. The property is far too large to be a good RC, I find the public areas to be rather garish in style and none of the restaurants stand out.
That being said, if a mosque view is the main point of interest it is the best option.

Agree with you, its not really a nice property and pales in comparison to the lovely Four Seasons!

If cant adjust your dates for the newly re-opened RC than I dont know what other options there are beyond the Chedi? I am curious about Muscat as well and eager to hear from resident experts!

Was in both Abu Dhabi and Baku a month or so ago. Really enjoyed, greatly, both FS properties.
