In my last review half an year ago, I gave it a four-star rating, because I thought it was not welcoming enough as a five-star hotel. The hospitality I felt was not up to my expectation.
However, I have stayed several times there afterwards, and I should say the more I get to know this hotel and this brand, the more I love this amazing hotel. The tone of the hotel, based on its decoration, is indeed dark and sophisticated, not like holiday inn or something. But it is far from intimidating. The front desk staff is intelligent enough to counter the darkness of the lobby.
There is nothing more to say about the rooms, top notch! If you have the lounge access, you can enjoy this hotel to another extend. Breakfast buffet just can't be better. The parking is free for hotel guests, hooray! You have this special feeling that everything is taken care of when you are staying here.
Just make sure to obtain a Intercontinental Embassador status. You'll know how much that $200 enrollment fee can bring you in a IC like this one.
