We arrived at this hotel early in the morning from a long haul flight. I had booked a VIP room so the front desk sent us up to the 27th floor. We were greeted by a very nice young lady who said she would arrange for an early check in for us. About half an hour later our room was ready.
We were given a beautiful room, and while the view is nothing to rave about, it is the only thing that detracts from this gorgeous hotel.
The hotel is attached by a walkway that leads to the Sandton shopping mall and Nelson Mandela square. It was raining so it was great not to have to get wet, The hotel is safe as is the mall, which has every kind of shop you can imagine and prices are excellent.
The VIP room has access to the club lounge, which provided an excellent breakfast, all cooked to order as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day.
We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The room was spacious, had every amenity you could ask for, and bottled water was replenished regularly. Nightly turndown included chocolates on the bed, and a mat with slippers at the side.
All these special touches are what bring a hotel to the forefront.
Special thanks to Kathleen who I spoke to via email prior to arrival, and Marcus - the most outstanding person we met. Nothing was ever too much trouble, always a smile and he instantly knew us by name.
I have been a staunch Hilton user for many years, but this stay has definitely made me change the way I think and we will be using Intercontinental where ever possible in the future.
