It's a relatively new hotel and with the Intercontinental brand it is not surprised that the room is perfect. Comfortable bed and sheets, spacious room, and impressive bathroom. The shower and toilet are separated with walls, 2 sinks on both side of the bathroom, very convenient for couples or family. The tub is something to enjoy too. And it was...
