I want to the Intercontinental Dalian to escape smog, traffic to relax with a nice coffee. So I thought. That was the worst China experience so far. I had the worst cafe late I have ever tasted in my life, with a price tag of 48 RMB ($9), served by the most rude staff I have come across, sitting on... More

I checked in at this hotel this week and to my dismay found that the room temperature was maintained at 28 degrees through master controls (thereby making the room temperature control unit redundant). It is extremely uncomfortable to sleep in a HOT room (the ideal temperature is between 21-24 degrees)... and after much negotiations, managed to get an air cooler... More

I stayed at the Intercontinental Dalian for 4 nights in February 2014. This is a pleasant, reasonably modern facility on the fringe of the downtown area. Rooms are very large and well appointed, with everything that you would expect at an Intercontinental property. Sleep quality was excellent. This is not a positive review, though, and the IC Dalian falls down... More

I recently stayed in this hotel while attending the Asian Seafood Show. My stay was exceptional from check in to check out.

This property is beautifully appointed; however, I cannot recommend it without some strong warnings. Firstly though, the concierge and their staff work hard for you and deserve complements. After that, the staff deteriorates quickly. Do not eat at Picolo's. They are clueless for the money you must spend. There are far better restaurants in other hotels. They are not well... More

After a sub-standard one night hotel experience in the "new" city zone area, I was glad that I came to InterContinental hotel in the heart of downtown, despite of knowing there will be a long morning commute to my meetings the following day.

When traveling on business, getting in late and out early, you'd like to believe you can rely on the consistency of an international chain. This property disappointed in every way.

Stayed for 4 nights on business this November. Overall a nice hotel, but not "Intercontinental" nice. This year alone I've stayed 40 nights in IHG branded hotels in China, including Intercontinentals, Crowne Plazas and Holiday Inns. This one feels just like a Crown Plaza in design and service, although it does shine brightly in a few areas. Allow me to... More
