We stayed for 6 nights in April and enjoyed every minute. The Club Intercontinental upgrade was worth paying for as you received breakfast made to order (rather than buffet), afternoon tea and evenings canapés, including alcoholic drinks. The service in the club was second to none with all of the staff very attentive. The chef would come out and talk... More

The room was fabulous, staff were extraordinary, buffet breakfast above expectations! Nothing was a problem and staff went out of their way to assist, which was a blessing as we were travelling with a baby. We can't wait to return on the home leg of our flights. Thank you

3 night stay with work. Staff generally faultless. Hotel public area and rooms immaculate. Connected to Festival City mall by a/c walkway. Takes about 2 minutes. Part of the mall is (already!) being torn down and rebuilt so for the next year would suggest rooms that have either a creek view or side of the hotel nearest the adjacent Crowne... More

Stayed at the Intercontinental Festival City for a weekend getaway with my wife. This hotel is one of my favorite ones in Dubai for many reasons, mainly the refined and understated luxury, the large size of the rooms, the great and courteous service. As an Ambassador member, you get a guaranteed upgrade, a fruit basket, free vouchers and free Wi-Fi.... More

We had an absolute marvelous stay at this hotel. It was our first stay in Dubai and our first trip to this beautiful country. We are from the U.S and a young couple in our late 20's and felt that the staff made every effort to accommodate us. The location is amazing, near the airport and all major attractions. We... More
