Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kamalsol Excellent service and very friendly staff
This relatively new hotel punches above its weight when it comes to service and amenities. Every staff member was eager to help and checked in with me at different points to make sure my stay was comfortable. I loved that the chef at the restaurant made me a special vegetarian meal when I noticed a relative lack of vegetarian options at the lunch buffet. The room was quiet and tastefully decorated. The hotel features modern, clean, slick lines but is coupled with calming earth tones so it doesn't comes across as too shiny or brash. My only reservation is the location. There's literally nothing to do in the immediate vicinity. This is, by and large, an airport hotel that's away from the main tourist attractions in the city. Muscat is so spread out that every trip by taxi cost much more than I expected. Still, I'd recommend this hotel in a heartbeat, especially for those with cars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by philstx Fantastic new option in Muscat
Perhaps I shouldn't say "in Muscat", as it is a bit of a journey to town, but it is a very luxurious-feeling hotel with great complimentary perks, especially for IHG Rewards Members.
The fruit basket is a bit over the top for a single person to eat... especially since it is complemented by chocolates and mixed nuts. However, I don't want that to be a complaint. It was very generous. The staff was very accommodating for me, even with an online booking snafu.
The bed was extremely comfortable and if I had neighboring patrons they were respectfully quiet.
The gym has everything needed: free weights, treadmills, ellipticals, benches and a bar... pretty simple but effective.
The breakfast bar is a bit steep for what it serves. I say this in comparison with other HIs in the region, especially considering the food is about the same.
All that said, I will reiterate the staff is professional and helpful, my sleep was great, and I would stay here again (despite the traffic to get to Muscat proper).
