What you can take for granted: ICDFC has first class infrastructure all round, from the passenger door of the airport Lexus limo to the Ainse all day restaurant via the Club Lounge, spa and pool. It is well maintained, quiet, well designed and every corner of it has ambiance and atmosphere many hotels struggle to achieve. It is simply a... More

I booked a 2 bedroom suite as I had family staying also, and was upgraded to a signature 2 bedroom suite. The room was on 31st floor and was very beautifully decorated and had amazing views. As always, the bed coverings were comfortable and we all slept well. Bathroom as well as all the suite was very clean. Very quiet... More

Another great 2 night stay at my favourite Dubai hotel. I wish it had been longer. In case you think I throw praise around too lightly, I have stayed in other big name Dubai hotels too such as Raffles, Grosvenor House, Jumeirah Beach Resort, Palace at The Old Town etc, so I am speaking with no little experience.

Very good hotel, and location the is ideal not far from the airport. However, the the mall attached to the hotel restaurants, and man made cannel is no longer in service which made the hotel lose some of the reputation. In addition room cleanliness is not up to standard dust all over the tables.

I booked an award room at the Intercon for a quick night (early morning flight departure) in Dubai, and was very happy that I did! The hotel itself is immaculate .. incredibly well furnished, various restaurants and bars in the lobby, and connected to the Festival City mall as well. Check-in was fast, and my room was far larger than... More

The Intercontinental at Festival City is a large, modern business hotel on the Deira side of the Creek (the same side as the airport). The area around it was developed only fairly recently, and although it is within easy reach of most places by taxi, the only point of interest within walking distance is the Festival Centre mall (currently undergoing...
