“Ancient Chinese Ambience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I spent my last night here. Anyone who entered the Hotel hall will be amazed by its spectacular internal deco - ! Ancient Chinese tea house in the hotel! After checking in, coming to the room is the bright spacious king bed with a round neon circle in the mirror of wash room section! Pretty good combination of the old and the modern! Still the tea culture has been subtly decorated into the hotel room which brings a strong recognition of Chengdu people's tea culture!

The only thing they are missing is the swimming pool! Guess people would rather taste the water from the tea cup here.

Third visit to this location and was fortunate to stay on the club floors. Although a little out from the city centre, the hotel is great and nothing is too much trouble for the ever attentive staff. Look forward to my next visit.

Stayed here for 5 nights due to its close proximity to the industrial development area. Hotel has a grand lobby, was upgraded to the club level due to the platinum status. Good business hotel, decent service, room is clean, huge and well equipped. Location is not near the city centre and getting a cab in the evening to the city might be a problem due to traffic jam. Will only recommend this hotel if you want to be close to the conventional centre or the industrial development area.

I stayed in this InterCon briefly, on business, 19th & 20th December 2013. I spend a good deal of time in hotels all over the world - large and small, grand and plain - and the quality of service, food and accommodation varies hugely, and not always in concert with the cost or reputation!

With that in mind, I compliment the InterContinental Group and in particular, the designers, managers and staff of the InterContinental Century City, on a really fine hotel, in every respect. From the warmth of the welcome, the huge range of facilities, including the 'village' that constitutes part of the hotel site, food, architecture and atmosphere. If I were to chose one superlative, it would be the staff, who, without exception, were brilliant. Well done.

Room Tip: My only criticism, which may be 'cultural', is associated with smoking. Smoking is still co...

Initially a beautiful hotel, but the cracks soon become apparent. The whole lobby area including the main restaurants and only bar are part of a huge atrium which appears to be totally lacking any form of heating and presumably air conditioning. In November, this meant that food on the buffet was cold, hot dishes prepared in the kitchen soon cooled down, and most people -staff and customers (including Chinese locals) sat eating and drinking in their overcoats. By contrast bedrooms were overheated and the controls had been disabled centrally. We turned ours off and eventually got the temperature down to 21C after 3 days. When the weather turned and we wanted some heat, it would not turn back on, and as most of the staff have very limited English, it took a further day to get 2 electric heaters delivered to the room. The staff and service will get better with time, but the building itself needs some fundamental rethinking which is a shame, as it is beautiful. There are better hotels in Chengdu - we also stayed at the Shangrila which is a true 5 star world class hotel by any standard.

Intercontinental chengdu does what it offers very well, it is a good business hotel next to a convention centre toward the edge of the city. It does feel a little impersonal and over scaled as most convention hotels are and therefore may not be the best choice for leisure visitors, albeit the colossal global centre is 5 mins away.

Rooms in the hotel are well furnished and very large. We had breakfast in the club lounge which was excellent.

My only disappointment with hotel was lack of pool facilities for such a high end and large hotel. With intercontinental global centre opening they will need to be their game to attract visitors.

The hotel has no air conditioning and the room is at 25.7 degrees celcius. Management says they are in the transition to winter schedules so their air conditioning is shut down. If you are like me who sleeps at 21 celcius, then you won't be able to sleep right now in this hotel. They don't even have enough electric coolers for every room. So you are out of luck if you are late in requesting one. Food is good at the buffet. Don't try the French restaurant at the 5th floor, they don't know what they are doing. Just outside of the hotel there are some nice restaurants. Unless you have to attend a show (Century Exhibition Hall) I would suggest that Shangri-la is much nicer where I stayed twice previously and the difference is heaven and earth.
