I stayed for one night at this hotel. The room was really nice. The bed was great as was the shower. High speed internet worked well. (For me, these are the holy trinity of hotel features). The gym and location come next but I didn't use the gym so can't comment on it. The location was a little out of the way.
I arrived in the mid-afternoon and had not had lunch. I went to the lobby restaurant/bar and asked if they had anything on the menu that didn't have bread or flour. The hostess kind of flippantly told me, I'm sure there are lots of things on the menu. No effort to help. I sat down, read the menu, and there was precious little with protein that didn't have bread/flour (sandwiches, burgers, a pasta dish) and nothing on there I actually wanted to eat. I got up and gave her the menu back and told her that I couldn't find anything on the menu that worked. Rather than say, let me take a look and see if I can find some option, or even better, let me go back and talk to the chef, she just looked a little miffed. I went across the street and had some sushi. So, no big deal, and she wasn't rude or difficult, just not helpful or proactive.
One other comment that probably is general rather than specific to this hotel. I'm a Platinum on Priority Club but don't tend to stay in too many Intercontinentals. This hotel (and maybe all ICs) don't provide any special amenities, AFAIK, to Platinums. You need to purchase an $200 Ambassador package, which I haven't done -- I did it one year but didn't get the amenities that would have made it worthwhile so dropped it. My status on the website says Platinum Ambassador, but as far as I can tell that is of no value.
