I go to UAE a great deal and have stayed in a number of hotels in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I always come back to the Intercon in AD as I feel really comfortable here. The staff are great and are the real asset of the hotel. From the GM, Ivor, via the Exec Lounge staff (Elixabet and Jasmin)... More

Stayed for four nights over the April school break. You get an immediate feel for the hotel when you walk into the lobby as it's extremely beautiful. Every member of staff in every department throughout our stay genuinely smiled when speaking to us and I have to say they were probably the friendliest hotel staffing I've ever experienced.

All the major groups have hotels in Abu Dhabi and it Is not easy to select from a very long list of similar sounding facilities. And choice is important as hotels tend to be quite a way apart and once you are inside a hotel compound you will spend lot of time there. After some agonising we chose the IC... More

This is our 3rd visit to the hotel, and this experience was just as good. As gold ambassador members we received exceptional service, especially from Jocielle and Darius (concierge). Hotel facilities improved even further by completion of the Bayshore beach complex. Will definitely be back for another stay in future!

Love staying at the Intercontinental of Abu Dhabi. The staff is really focused on serving and I love the little chocolates they give on the pillows. Our room and bathroom are exceptionally clean.
