The Intercontinental was TA's highest rated hotel in Warsaw and it was easy to see why. The Lobby was elegant, piano player at times, several bars/lounges. It is probably not the best location for tourism, that would be in the Old Town (Stare Misto) and probably the Hotel Bristol (recommended by local friends). We had two adjacent rooms for our family of 6 (4 children from 14 to 22). Our rooms had a fabulous view over the city. Each room had a King sized bed, plus an additional cot provided by the hotel. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The pillows were great (I love pillows) -- and they even had a pillow menu (really dear to my heart there). They had a bottle of wine and fruit waiting for us. The bathroom was modern with separate bath and shower and panoramic views (robes and slippers for all and great travel sundries case). The concierge was very helpful with suggestions and assistance. The Club Lounge is a must. It is worth the extra price of admission for the free breakfasts alone (nice fresh juices, drinks, coffees/hot chocolates etc; meats (lox, herring etc.) section, fruit section, various yogurts, assorted breads and pastries, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage); the club lounge also has alcohol and hors d’oeuvres in the evenings, and free wifi with computers, plus gorgeous city views. It is a nice place to meet for business as well or just to relax with a book. There is no wifi in the rooms themselves but there is wifi in the Club lounge as well as in the lobby and first floor. The pool and health club are amazing -- nice indoor pool with glass floor to ceiling windows looking out at the entire city, nice Jacuzzi/whirlpool, sauna, steambath, solarium, great exercise room also with views of the City and periodic yoga and pilates classes. As for the restaurants in the Intercontinental, yes they are overly expensive as is true with most hotel restaurants. At lunch, the kids liked the Sloppy Joes which was not like traditional sloppy joes with minced meat but rather like a sloppy double burger. The stuffed Polish chicken was also quite good. That restaurant was called “Downtown” which at night transforms to Fridas. The restaurant itself is nice, the tables are really spaced out so it was fairly private and easy to talk.
