InterContinental is IHG’s top brand, and most of their hotels are up to a high standard. One of them is InterContinental in Dubai Festival City. Based on research it looked like a great business hotel, so I decided to try it for my project. I arrived at the hotel, and they escorted me to my suite. I stayed in a Creek Suite, and it was great. It was very large with a contemporary design, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. I’ve seen it all before, but it was a very comfortable suite. The room also had flowers, welcome snacks and chocolates. With 498 rooms I did not expect personalised service. It’s a business hotel with big B. The staff is well-trained, professional and friendly, but the service is like you would expect it to be in a business hotel without the extra touches which businesspeople don’t need anyway. The facilities is great as you would expect in a business hotel and the club lounge is one of the better ones I’ve seen.
Overall this must be one of the best InterContinentals in the world. If you’re looking for a great business hotel with great service this is the place to stay in Dubai, just don’t forget they have 498 rooms so do not expect personalised service.
My opinion: Great experience.
