HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 February 2017 via mobile

We stayed one night on the way home - I chose the hotel as it was near the airport as much as anything else. First impressions were that we were surrounded by building work (though having said that the same could be said of most of Dubai). However as soon as we entered the hotel we encountered some of the...

Fantastic accommodation, wonderful staff, fabulous breakfast buffet. We always book the Club Room and throughly enjoy the extras e.g. high tea and evening cocktails. Thank you to all of the staff who made our stay perfect. We were traveling with a very tired, shy 3 year old. Every single staff member who we encountered were marvelous.

A very nice hotel, nice rooms, great variety of restaurants. But when they tell you that outside, on the veranda of the cafe / lounge, WiFi reception is not good, and you experience a very poor WiFi connection, and they know it, and they do nothing about it, then the management is really poor as well, similar to the WiFi...

This is a lovely hotel, only stayed here one night as local to the airport, excellent access to the Festival Mall via the lobby. Excellent large rooms with all you need. Pool area could do with a bit of a tidy up, tiles missing off the wall in the pool area. Vista Bar is excellent, great for sitting on the...

We spent a get-away night here, because we wanted to see the Imagine light and water show at the Festival City Mall. The hotel is not centrally positioned, but with the right room you can have a nice view of the creek and the downtown skyline. The room was clean, spacious and interestedly arranged. The lobby is spacious but nothing...

An IHG hotel is nearly always my first choice for staying around the world. A few months ago we stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Festival which was great and when we saw that the Intercontinental Hotel was next door, we promised ourselves we would stay there on our next visit…and so we did. Check-in was handled by the friendly...

I have visited the Intercontinental in Dubai Festival City several times and I enjoy coming back. Friendly service, great rooms, a good gym and a great Belgian bar with an outside terrace - almost pitch perfect. It's conveniently close to the airport (as I mostly stay less than 3 nights and transfer to other cities in the region.
