We attended a good friend's wedding in Dalian and stayed at InterContinental. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable. The guest service is really good and staff are really friendly. It is located in the center of the city (Friendship square) and very close to everything.
The spa is operated by 3rd party but it is not bad at all. Reasonable price and open 24/7.
Breakfast is fantastic with many choices.
Dalian itself has many things to offer, one of the few city in China that is a metropolitan and yet not polluted. Being near to the coast line means the seafood is what you need to try. If we go there again, we will definitely stay in this hotel again.

The rooms are gigantic, and the location is pretty central to downtown Dalian. The bathrooms were particularly nice because of all the space, and they gave good toiletries. The rooms were comfortable and quiet - especially given the noise outside. The windows were grimy on the outside, but that couldn't really be helped given how much pollution there is in Dalian.

The hotel restaurant is incredibly expensive - the first night we were there we didn't have any Mandarin speakers with us, so we didn't feel comfortable going out and decided to eat at the hotel restaurant. It was good, but when we got the bill it was way overpriced.

I was able to use the pool one day, which was very nice - it's a big pool and was relatively empty. However, the pool requires that you wear a cap, and if you don't bring one you may need to buy one, so be aware!

And be aware that if you're looking to get hotel points, Intercontinentals overseas are only worth 2000 points per stay, regardless of how many nights you stay. So if that's important to you, another chain might be better.

We are delighted to know that you enjoyed the very central location of our hotel, as well our large rooms and our very large bathroom and the toiletry selection and quality.

We happy to know you liked our lap pool, it is the largest indoor pool in Dalian, as for the swimming cap they are for hygiene reason.

This part of Asia is very seasonal and we are reviewing our menus verry frequently. We will gladly look at our pricing if necessary during our next menu change please note we also offer some exquisite special food & beverage promotions in all our restaurants.

We are happy to share your favourable comments on our hotel rooms and good food with our team, and we will continuously work harder to ensure we can provide the finest service to our guests.

First of all, location is really good. it's just center of downtown n not far from Dalian railway station n many shopping malls nearby.
Second, we were satisfied with check-in staff who help us early check-in and also the friendly big guy of concierge gave us good info for city tour & taxi fare.
Lastly, room condition was generally good, especially bed was comfortable.
Overall, it could be one of the best choice in Dalian.

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. The hotel was very nice, well located downtown and staff was very friendly. Upon check-in we received an upgrade to a club room which was much nicer then expected. The hotel and room were very clean and very spacious. Only two reasons I did not rate this hotel a five were that the breakfast was extremely overpriced (over 200 RMB per person per day or $33 USA) and the hotel staff did not really know the area and therefore had very poor recommendations for things to do. For example, they recommended Alice Club to us for dinner and when we walked in there were women dancing on poles (so we left).
I definitely recommend this hotel in Dalian, but prepay for your breakfast and do your own activity research.

I stayed at the Intercon Dalian for two nights on a weekend trip. Booking, check-in all went well and my room on the 42nd floor had great views of the harbor and sunset. The room layout was fantastic and to be able to sit in the bath and look out over the city was pretty cool. The city looking in at me in the bath may not have been as impressed. I am a Priority Club member and although I am not fastidious, I enjoy the little touches that brings. There was no fruit on arrival to the room, which does not really matter, but is not what I have come to expect from Intercon previously. Some was delivered after reminding a few times. Extra bottled water was brought promptly to the took when requested. I did not dine or use any facilities at the hotel, but all staff encountered were of good quality. I can recommend Riviera restaurant adjacent to the Shangri-la for a good western meal if you are so inclined.

Room Tip: Hey up, west facing worked for me!!!
