There is no gift shop or place to pick up quick essentials nearby unless you go across the street to the Fairmont, where, you will be told after the clerk runs your credit card that you need to pay $0.10 for a bag - that is after the Fairmont gift shop clerk finishes up her conversation with another hotel staff person who is visiting. Back over at the Intercontinental, you might want to go up to the Top of the Mark for a late lunch - wrong! Even though hours are never stated in any of the in room hotel documentation, lunch is only served until 2pm. You can access the internet at two different price points, unfortunately the "basic" service is like revisiting dial-up internet from the year 2000.
Rooms were nice and all that jazz, but this hotel was only so so.
