We stopped in Dubai for 3 days to see friends and were blown away by the level of service and amenities at the IC Festival City Dubai. From the airport arrival pick up to departure our experience was nothing short of fantastic. The Concierge Kamahl is truly a superstar and couldn't have been more helpful in organising a number of...

Breakfast is top notch! It is a huge hall with different kind of breakfast stations with different kind of kitchen types. You can pick literally whatever you want: starting from the century eggs ending up with noodles that you can cook for yourself, Arabic specialties and dim sums! I want to be back for this breakfast! Room was very good... More

Doing business in Dubai frequently we have been spotting for the best hotel and location to stay. The Intercontinental festival city has it all. Great five star service, good restaurants and pubs, modern stylish rooms. A recommendation and conveniently located between the airport and dubai city.

As expected from a hotel in the Intercon group, the hotel had first class staff and well equipped comfortable rooms. All staff from concierge, bell boys and maid service were friendly, helpful and knowledgable to hotel services and local amenities. Transport connections are easy with great access to highway network. The room was spotless with an interesting bathroom, a bit... More

The IC Dubai Festival City is nothing short of perfection. It's connected to a major shopping mall and is stunningly decorated with a modern feel. Rooms are large and clean as is the bath area. Staff was welcoming and helpful, especially as we are IHG Platinum Elite. The breakfast at the restaurant near the check in desk (sorry...I can't remember... More

This hotel is top notch! Very close to the airport. Lovely, elegant furnishing, the staff are outstanding. Very convenient location and spectacular views from the hotel. We would definitely return. Sat out on the bar balcony for a glass of wine--lovely views!

Words can't describe this luxurious hotel but a little bit expensive ... The whole nearby area deserves exploring; the mall and of course IKEA. One drawback is that Dubai Metro is not accessible from this area but buses and taxi are available. I quite sure you will not regret it... Enjoy it

I would like to highlight just how good the Club Lounge is at this Interconti. Every member of the Club team (without exception) are courteous, professional and super-helpful - of special mention were Gayan, Tashriek, Maryam, Josephine, Beverly and Pooja. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. Please keep on doing what you do!
