Having previously used the le Meridien I was booked into the Intercontinental accidentally, but it turned out to be a nice hotel. While not on the Corniche, it is in a nice part of town, but there are some security concerns. It does not have the usual high security entrance, and can be approached without passing through any form of evident security (although there is a security barrier from the main road, this can be circumvented). Also the hotel comprises two buildings and the second building, where I stayed, has a desk that was not manned when I arrived. The lift does require a room card to activate it which is somewhat reassuring. I can imagine in Summer that the walk from one building to the other would not be appreciated in high heat and humidity. Room was modern and well appointed, with free internet, and was reasonably priced. Breakfast was of a high quality, with a full choice of buffet items. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and were a highlight of the visit. Courteous, friendly and went the extra mile.
