This hotel exceeded my expectations, and I had a very peaceful and pleasant stay. The hotel is close to the center and free shuttle service to the malls .Rooms are spacious and comfortable but not as places I've stayed in London and Paris.Nice recommendations and tips to see abu dhabi and dubai from the great concierge Mr.ElKari who exceeded my...

Just came off a flight from Europe into Dubai and then the long trip by road to Abu Dhabi, so I was quite tired. I was well recognized for my loyalty club status and even offered a nice suite with a good view of the water. The manager at check in could do no wrong, it was a thoroughly professional... More

I didn't love this hotel. I am very loyal to the Intercontinental Group, mainly because of the impeccable service and the fantastic benefits that you get from being an Ambassador Member. However, nothing about the service stood out to me in particular (perhaps I was not needy enough this time around to notice the staff going out of their way... More

The hotel is a delight to stay in, with a great choice of restaurants. Some were closed during Ramadan, but still left several to choose from. The concierge was particularly helpful with general information and bookings for various things.

I have to start by saying that I can not comment on price as my stay was financed by my company. However I can comment on services very well. The staff are very friendly warm and professional. Checking in was a bit slow but the friendly attitude of the receptionist had helped to accept the lengthy process. Room was very... More

Returned here for the second year on the bounce. The new Selections restaurant is excellent and the Yacht Club as good as ever. Book with confidence. This may not be the most ultra modern hotel in Abu, but it is still highly regarded as one of the best for service in the area. I would like to give a special... More

You can't really go wrong with an Intercontinental Hotel, the staff are efficient and attentive, the rooms are clean and well presented, the Lounge is peaceful and the Belgian Café is close by for refreshments. No complaints, but nothing outstanding to report.

I've stayed in many IC hotels around the world. The Abu Dhabi property isn't the grandest by any means but has the best staff I've encountered. As such it is the best of all because how I am treated is much more important that fancy facilities or restaurants. That's not to say that the facilities here are second rate because... More

I've stayed in this hotel many times now for personal stays, but my last stay was for business. The hotel seemed to be overwhelmed with check-ins at my time of arrival, but this didn't stop them for taking the time to recongise me as a returning guest. The front desk colleagues even go so far as to make you feel... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
InterContinental Abu Dhabi is perfectly situated on the beach and less than 10 minutes from bustling downtown and the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre. Heritage Village, the Cultural Foundation and Lulu Island are also close by. For a unique shopping experience, the Gold Souk (market) is a must while the Marina and Abu Dhabi Malls offer more contemporary alternatives. The hotel concierge can arrange a 4x4 desert safari for those looking for adventure."We are currently working on a beach re-development scheduled to start during the second week of April 2012 and due to be finalized by the third quarter of 2013 .Our exciting new project will enhance the facilities in our hotel by uplifting our outdoor areas. We will take every effort to minimize the disruption to our guests who will continue to have full access to the beach and can enjoy a dip in the sea. Guests can also continue to enjoy our outdoor pool located in our main block." ... more   less
