We've stayed here 4 times for short stopovers. It's close to terminal 1 and 3, and it's linked to the huge festival city mall.
The restaurant 'anise' has an amazing selection of food for it's buffets...and the chef even gave me tips on how they do their seafood chowder.
I've been told that the intercontinental is more for business travelers, whilst their sister hotel next door appeals more for the aid workers/ engineers in transit/short breaks in Dubai.
But what most appealed us (apart from the high standard of rooms, amenities and food, etc) was that we noticed that the managers also acknowledged/said hello to their cleaning persons when walking past them). We've never seen this level of decency in other luxury hotels and to our minds, reflects the caring approach management must have.More
