Dubai city hotel help

Needed some advice for a hotel in Dubai. We will be spending most of our time shopping and wanted recommendations on the very best of the city hotels. It is my understanding that a lot of the super lux resorts such as the Burj, Jumeirah Beach etc, are about 30 min from the city, is that correct? Is staying out at the beach that much better than the luxury hotels in the city itself? Which city hotels also have the best location?

The Burj and Jumeirah beach hotels are about 20 - 30 minutes from the city center, depending on traffic. The beach hotels are great, and we normally stay at them, but the high end city hotls are great too. Most of the quality chains have beach and city hotels now. Nothing is very far from anything else and taxis are safe and cheap.

I would recommend an internet search for hotel choices, then go with a chain you like. "Best location" is driven by what you want, modern malls or suqs or museums or water view.

Believe me, you won't go wrong or be disappointed.
