We stayed for 6 nights in April and enjoyed every minute. The Club Intercontinental upgrade was worth paying for as you received breakfast made to order (rather than buffet), afternoon tea and evenings canapés, including alcoholic drinks. The service in the club was second to none with all of the staff very attentive. The chef would come out and talk...

The room was fabulous, staff were extraordinary, buffet breakfast above expectations! Nothing was a problem and staff went out of their way to assist, which was a blessing as we were travelling with a baby. We can't wait to return on the home leg of our flights. Thank you

Stayed at the Intercontinental Festival City for a weekend getaway with my wife. This hotel is one of my favorite ones in Dubai for many reasons, mainly the refined and understated luxury, the large size of the rooms, the great and courteous service.
