Ritz-Carlton JBR or Grosvenor House are the best options in Dubai Marina I personally prefer the Ritz because you can access many things in a walking distance

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

Ladies, I have a dilemma. I know the choice is ultimately mine, but I wanted some input. I met my current boyfriend through my cousin and he lives in Chicago.

However, I was applying for jobs in NYC and just received and offer for a company I’ve always wanted to work for. I feel like I’m going to have to make a choice between my job and my relationship. What would you do?

She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
