enjoy the pool Mar 31, 2011
spent the weekend with some friends.

The Location:

the hotel is attached to Dubai Festival City (DFC),a major shopping mall.

also, Crowne Plaza is next door.


i have only tried their breakfast and i have enjoyed it.

"Reflets": 3 award winning :)

1-Restaurant of the Year 2011, 2-Best French & 3-Best Contemporary European, definitely worth trying

The Room:

very nice modern room interiors, with a bay and pool view.

The Service:

very nice, friendly and attending staff. very fast service.

Other Notes:

if you are planning on roaming the city, then you should be prepared to join a bit of a long queue or get the hotel cab which is over priced.

An average taxi ride to downtown would cost around AED 40 = EURO 8 or $11

just consider the time you are gonna spend waiting for a taxi. also, concierge will help you as a lot of people coming from the mall join the queue.

but what is so special about the hotel is the swimming pool, with a transparent side showing an endless sight of the bay.

My kind of Hotel but pricy Mar 15, 2011
I've stayed about 20 different InterContinental properties in about same number of countries...

I would say Dubai property is better one than others where Shanghai's new one is also great..

I guess new properties are wonderfully designed and done, espeically in West Asia or East Asia...

Only blemish was check-in process and too obvious effort of upselling other services..

Youngman who checked me in treated me like I am checking into a hotel in first time in my life while my Ambassador Platinum card was in his hand...What a killjoy he was...

Affordable luxury hotel Mar 14, 2011
I stayed at the InterContinental for a week and must say that it was a fantastic stay. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The hotel is located next to a great mall and marina, there is plenty to do. Besides the hotels fantastic Restaurants there are many others nearby. The view from the Lobby bar is amazing, especially for sunsets. The rooms are well appointed and large. I also liked the fact that you could walk around the area and there are some great jogging trails nearby.

the free Wifi in the lobby and public areas was a great addition.

Modern Contemporary Hotel Mar 07, 2008
I've stayed in this hotel a couple of times now (weekends) and I must say this hotel is pretty good. From the spacious, elegant lobby when you enter the hotel, to the all-smiles staff who are always more than happy to assist. The hotel is interconnected to the mall (Festival Centre) which is quite convenient for guests staying in the hotel, especially during summer months when the temperature outside rises to up to 50 degrees C! I kid you not, it gets 'that' hot in Dubai. They have a few restaurants and cafes. For moe choices, head out to the mall. I guess the only sort of a downer for ICH DFC is that it is located in Festival City and is quite far from the beaches. But that can be overlooked if you're a golf-person because there's Four Seasons Golf Club just around the corner. I'd gladly recommend this hotel for those who love to enjoy their time in Dubai.

Luxury next to the Dubai Creek Apr 27, 2008
The Intercontinental @ Festival City is a great hotel. Usually I dont stay in luxury hotels, but this was a company sponsored trip and I did not have to worry about money.

The hotel is only a short drive from the airport and is part of the Festival City Development. In 2008 there was still a lot of construction going on around the hotel, but the main Mall plus an Ikea store were already finished. The hotel itself was only opened recently and everything still looked brand new.

The hotel offered all the amenities, that can be expected from a hotel in this category. I particularly liked the modern room design. The always smiling and very friendly staff complemented my stay at the Intercontinental.

A great experience, but too pricy to pay out of my own pocket.

Their amenities are not too shabby are they. In fact I find the hotel very modern and accommodating at the same time! =)
