We had two nights in KL on our way home from Langkawi, and settled on the Intercontinental, due to both the location (KLCC) and what appeared to be a very good price. We weren't disappointed on either front. It was a 10 min walk to the Twin Towers (even with a four year old in tow), and we were extremely impressed with the room we had (we were given an upgraded room), and the presentation of the hotel.
In reading other reviews, I agree that it IS a bit noisy, most likely due to poor glazing on the north side (which was where we were situated), but it did not hinder our sleep.
It is clearly aimed at the business market, however we did not feel out of place there, with many 'tourists' also staying in the hotel.
The breakfast buffet was quite good, without being exceptional, with the reason being that the fruit selection was not very visually appealing, and thus I stayed away.
The concierge(s) was/were extremely helpful whenever we walked past, and all the staff were extremely (and genuinely) friendly, especially to my two sons.
We would be more than happy to stay in this hotel again when we return to KL.
