My lasting impression of the intercon in Muscat is the spacious, well maintained gardens, swimming pool and sports facilities which together with easy access to beach walks makes for an excellent location if you're visiting Muscat ....on business or pleasure.
(if you are a runner definitively remember your kit and take a run late afternoon up and down the beach dodging the local football teams)
Staff are friendly and helpful....we left a bag in a taxi one day and had excellent support from the concierge to get the bag and its contents (more than 1000USD of ipads etc) back in-tact.
Breakfast in the downstairs coffee shop is great - good service, choice, layout and organisation.
Other restaurants that we tried were not as good as we would have liked.....choice somewhat limited and quality not up to the highest standards which you would expect at a the Intercontinental brand.
Room design is a little dated which is not surprising given that the hotel was built in the 70's. I was happy with the overall quality, facilities and space in the room but know that some of my colleagues felt the bathrooms in particular were in need of an update in style.
It all worked for me.
I was happy to stay there would be happy to return and feel that the location and set-up is extremely conducive for doing business in Muscat.
