Where should I begin? First, I made my booking online and put in the comments that I'd need an airport transfer and would send my flight details later. about 2 weeks prior to my arrival I received an email from the concierge staff to iron out the details for my transfer. Needless to say that was flawless! Upon arrival at the InterContinental the staff was already waiting for me. I quickly copied my passport and was on my way to my room! Fastest checkin at any hotel I've ever had!
The rooms were excellent. Marble bathrooms with bathtubs where the water comes out of the ceiling! All the major amenities that you would expect are in the room: mini bar, flat screen TV with plenty of cable channels, etc.
The location of the hotel is nice. A walkway connects it to the Festival City Mall for plenty of shopping and the Hard Rock Cafe is right around the corner.
About the only complaint that I have is the service in the bistro, just off the main lobby. Service was a little lacking. Upon ordering, the only other time I saw the wait staff was to bring my food. I had to ask for the check by walking up to the counter.
Check out was as easy as check in and I was on my way in no time! All in all, very good place to stay.
