For vacation the Ritz in JBR is nice and on the beach. It's a bit far from the main city though.

The W in Downtown/JW Marriott Marquis downtown are not too bad, otherwise the Le Meridien in Marina is also recommended. Feel free to drop a DM for local advice.

JW Marquis

Grosvenor House is nice for working and good food, but not really a vacation spot. Le Meridian is quite nice as long as you don't get a room near the club on Friday night.

Grosvenor House Ritz Carlton JBR

W Al Habtoor City. Brand new. Opened in June. Shares a pool with the St. Regis.

I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
