Great restaurants, happy hours and breakfast with a view. It's a beautiful hotel and great to be aware from the hustle of dubai but still be close enough for the amazing skyline view. Go there for happy hour. Head there for breakfast on the terrace and watch the birds and the quiet (aside from occasional helicopters). Love it

Hotel is nice. Service is nice. Furniture are nice. Beautiful view. location is good. In general it is amazing. Most beautiful thing is the swimming pools in rooms. If you like swimming or relaxing in a pool try that room.

Clean, friendly but one side of the building hears the noise of mall construction. Choose wisely. The bathroom has a wonderful tub-shower combination where you have water from above, the side or over the tub. The ability to get s taxi was excellent. 20 minutes to downtown Dubai

In this Intercontinental, you can find everything you can expect from a five star hotel. Great service, quality food, clean rooms and a very nice swimming pool to enjoy relaxation. Price is also resonable

The Intercontinental Festival City is located not too far from the Airport, which is convenient; although a bit far from downtown. It enjoys a beautiful view over the Dubai skyline though. The rooms are spacious, very well designed, and extremely modern. The gym and pool are what you can expect from such a hotel, top notch. So what makes this... More

Fantastic hotel, with very nice rooms. Hotel relative close to the airport, along the Dubai creeck. Superb facilities, like the gym, pool and conference area. Breakfast a little too crowdy, but quality ok.

I booked this hotel to celebrate my wife’s birthday and everything was fine except we had to wait about 10 minutes in the lobby to check-in as well to checkout.

I last reviewed this Hotel nearly four years ago. Very little has changed in this time. This Hotel and Crowne Plaza next door are no longer so isolated as in the past as the area around the Festival City is now developed.
