Being a 5 star hotel, you don't expect any less from an Intercontinental... Good clean rooms, large breakfast selection, a nice swimming pool & fitness center, but what clinched it for us was the price. We got a double room for $150 inclusive of taxes & breakfast. There was no other 5 star hotel in that price range, so it was almost a default choice.
If you see the official city map (http://www.tourismcambodia.com/ftp/high-res-maps/Hi-Res-PhnomPenh-Map.jpg), most of the attractions are on the center-right side of the map (royal palace, silver pagoda, national museum, independence monument), and others are still further up like the wat phnom. That area also has tons of restaurants, cafes, super markets also. So whether it was for the tourist attractions or the meals, we always ended up in that area. That area also has many hotels like the FCC etc. so in hindsight it would have been better to stay in that area.
In a relatively small city with everything within $2 tuk-tuk ride away ($1 p.p.), it did not matter so much, but one evening we did not feel like going again to the 'city center' for a meal, and there was absolutely nothing within walking distance from the hotel, so we ended up ordering room service...
