Ritz-Carlton JBR or Grosvenor House are the best options in Dubai Marina

JW marriott was great ... close to mall and downtown

If you want to see the fireworks, then jbr/Marina would have great views and I would agree with bcg1. If you don't see the fireworks, there are better options . JW Marriott downtown is really good for the Burj khalifa festivities.

Jumeirah beach hotel. Anything on the palm
