The hotel is outstanding in terms of rooms and view from the room (especially during night). It took us some time to get checked in and were upgraded to a suite in the 29th floor. The service is very good. The hotel is really near the airport which took us about 10 min upon arriving and leaving. On the other... More

This hotel was very comfortable with large rooms and lovely food. Close to local amenities and airport. It also boasts a lovely pool area and gym. With a couple of nightclubs located in the building so you can have a drink.

Nice hotel. Clean and spacious. Took a bit to figure out how to close the blinds in the bathroom. Comfy bed. Need more electrical plugs that fit whatever plug (European, USA, etc) especially around the bed. Nice furniture and decorations. Great workout room. Pool design was nice but water was very warm (summer time).

This hotel was an amazing experience. From the concierge to check out the staff couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were spotless, turned down twice a day with breathtaking walk in shower rooms. We upgraded to the Club room which was not necessary as we realised as we missed out on the buffet breakfast in the main restaurant. This was... More

We've stayed here 4 times for short stopovers. It's close to terminal 1 and 3, and it's linked to the huge festival city mall. The restaurant 'anise' has an amazing selection of food for it's buffets...and the chef even gave me tips on how they do their seafood chowder. I've been told that the intercontinental is more for business travelers,... More

We had a nice room overlooking the dubai skyline. Room itself was lovely and comfortable and the hotel had was close to a complex with restaurants and the suchlike, but all were rather expensive for the quality of food.. Front of desk helpful- it is a lengthy tube trip to the mall and other tourist attractions however.

The Intercon itself is great - large rooms, great gym & spa, and a decent pool area. The concierge staff was hit or miss though. Some people were great and they helped us decide on activities and made all the arrangements for us, while others just tried to steer us onto a tour bus. As nice as the hotel is... More

What a great experience firstly a free upgrade when we checked in as a suite was still available, this was very much appreciated. The suite was fantastic the only negative comment is the noise from the airconditioning machine on the roof...But that is really a detail. Of course a great outside pool as you can imagine. Breakfast was the best... More
