The first time I visited this hotel was in 1987 and in that time the Intercontinental was quite a conspicuous building in Abu Dhabi! Nowadays there are lots of surrounding highrise buildings, however that does not mean the hotel lost it's presence. It is still a 'place to be' with it's own yacht harbour and cafe's where you can pleasantly enjoy the warm evenings. Guest rooms are nice with lots of daylight entering through windows reaching from floor to ceiling.
December 1-7, I stayed with my wife in room 1421 which was a seaview club level room. We enjoyed the hotel premises, the hospitality of the personel and can conclude that this is still a well managed hotel ranking with the top-hotels of Abu Dhabi. For our next visit, we shall book this hotel again an also our son has booked here a room for his visit to Abu Dhabi on 29 december next week.
Especially thanks to Matai and Kumudu in the lounge for all their efforts to make you feel at home!
