After reading some of the reviews here i was not expecting too much from The Intercon. My experience was excellent. On check we were welcomed by happy, polite staff who seemed pleased to have our large group staying there. All 18 of us were up to our rooms within 10 minutes of arrival. The lobby is very late 1980's but in a tasteful way, the hotel has a lovely ambience, airy and spacious. The standard king rooms have an unusual octagonal layout which is a nice change from the usual box shape of most hotels. Furniture is of a nice quality, well maintained and the beds are super comfortable. Noise levels from the hallways are well damped by the longish hallway from the doorway to the bedroom, in fact i was unable to hear the rooms next door opening and closing their doors. Bathroom is very large with great water pressure and it does not steam up in there. Interesting apricot marble surfaces made me feel quite nostalgic.
Breakfast was excellent, not a huge buffet but one fillled with impressive small details like organic yoghurt and individual Bircher Muesli pots, it's more about the quality of food than a large variety. Staff were unfailingly polite and cheerful wherever i dealt with them. The hotel has the best location in Adelaide, right on North Tce, five minutes walk to everywhere and with access to a lovely riverside behind the hotel.The Casino is right next door as is the convention centre. I loved the art gallery and museum a few minutes walk away. My only qualms were parking at AU$40 per day, but there is a cheaper option next to the hotel at $10 a day. Also the fridge/minibar looks a little dated, the original wood would look nicer than the white paint used. A very fine hotel in a gorgeous city.
