Spent 5 nights here and it was simply the best hotel I ever been too. Room was spacious, state of the art, with a view of the helipad over Dubai Creek and Burj Khalifa in the distance. Wonderful bed, bathroom with a view, and that bathtub you see in the photos section certainly added to atmosphere. Wi-Fi was a little... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights as a break on the flight from Australia and Europe. The Intercontinental is only a short drive from the International Airport. We had the warmest of welcomes when we arrived well after midnight and were shown to our suite. The hotel sits on Dubai Creek about 10 minutes drive from Burj... More

This is one of the finest luxury hotels in Dubai. The lobby (and the flower display) is as stunning as the view of the Burj Khalifa. The rooms are contemporary, spacious, well equipped with amenities and you have a pillow menu with many great choices. The staff is very helpful and the service is outstanding in all areas of the...

The Intercontinental at Festival City is located very close to the airport. Nonetheless, it's rather isolated, located in Festival City by the creek which is still under construction and always a taxi ride from your next destination. But then again, isn't everything in Dubai, which is definitely not a walking city. The hotel is impressive! You experience this from the... More

Rooms, staff and position are all great for business and a short break. 10mins from the airport so ideal if you are on a late or early flight. Pool is a decent size and you can use the facilities of the crown plaza next door. Festival city is also a shopping centre so handy for anything you may need. Also... More

Hands down the best all around hotel experience in my travels. From the greeting of the bell hops, to every employee I encountered- there was a smile and greeting. The rooms are large, modern with outstanding space for setting up an in room office, or relaxing without having to sit on the bed. I was there for a week, and... More

I stayed at the InterContinental for one night during a long layover. I wish I could have stayed longer. The facility is immaculate to the point of almost being impersonal. My room was excellent and was well stocked with everything I needed. I slept great as the bed was comfortable and it was perfectly quiet. My room had both a... More
