There is only one problem with this place - taxis can't find it. My colleague's taxi took her to the OTHER Intercontinental, despite me telling the driver, her telling the driver and showing it to him written down. I even had the same problem with a normal metered taxi who just couldn't find the front door.
Hotel is utterly confusing to navigate yourself around, and i stayed for 10 days! However the staff are great, and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Mini bars are devoid of alcohol for some reason?
Usual problems for me as a vegetarian in this kind of business hotel. I am bored to tears with 'tomato pasta, or we can cook you something'. But you can easily go somewhere else like Cucina or Vapiano like i did.
Overall i prefer the W Hotel, largely because there is more choice of eating and drinking opportunities.
