When paying in excess of $200/night, I expect a room that has been updated sometime in the last 20 years. The room at the Intercontinental has stained carpet, coming up at the seams, two lamps with burnt out bulbs, a tv that doesn't work, chipped furniture, and a bathroom i'd expect to see in a 1960's non-updated house...
On the flip side - fantastic Indian restaurant, nice poolside atmosphere, great breakfast buffet, certainly secure... If I was willing to pay in excess of $300/night I would have been in one of their few updated rooms (the ones in the pics)... So I guess it's all about what you're willing to pay. Of course... I'm switching to a hotel for $120/night with updated rooms just a couple kilometers from here so...
