We have just returned from a trip to the Flinders Ranges and our last two nights were spent at the lovely Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide before flying home to Melbourne.
We booked a Club Room and were given a lovely room on the 21st floor overlooking the Adelaide Cricket Ground, the river and parklands. We discovered that we had been upgraded to a larger room. I am a Ambassador member of the Priority Club of Intercontinetal but I don't think upgrades apply to Gold Members so this was a very nice surprise. We also received free bottled water, a fruit platter and some delicious chocolates. Free internet was provided in the Club Lounge.
The room was quite large and had a well designed marble bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the air condtioning was quiet. There was a desk overlooking the view and a comfortable settee for watching TV or just reading.
We had all our meals in the Club Lounge during our stay. The food was plentiful. The breakfasts had fresh fruit, cereals, smoked meats, cheeses, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausages egg, toast that you cooked yourself, pastries, espresso coffee, soft drinks and tea.
Sandwiches were provided at lunchtime by dialling 5 from the Club Lounge. Again coffee, tea, soft drinks and biscuits were also provided.
Canapes and drinks were from 5.30pm- 7.30pm. Any drink from sparkling white and red wines to spirits were provided. We had enough to eat each night without having to go out to dinner.
We enjoyed our two nights in this lovely hotel with excellent staff who were only too happy to help you with any problem.
The hotel is very handy to everything in Adelaide. We did a lovely walk along the river on our only afternoon there and we also visited the shops in Rundle Street which is only a block away. If you are interested in gambling then the Casino is right next door.
