My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful 5 night vacation at the Intercontinental in October 2008. It was the Eid holidays and the hotel was fully booked, but this presented no problems for the staff who were magnificent at all times and the hotel never seemed overcrowded.
We had a standard room but this was high quality, spacious and very modern. Big, comfortable bed; cool bathroom fittings and a great view overlooking Dubai Marina and helipad (Soundproofing is excellent - absolutely no noise helicopter noise).
Dining in Bistro Madeleine and Belgian Pub (in the interconnecting Crowne Plaza) was excellent and, in terms of cost, good value when compared to other 5* Dubai hotels. One complaint - the Vista Lounge cocktails were on the stingy side of small.
Festival City Shopping Mall offers 500 shops and the waterside Festival Walk has bars, restaurants and a great fireworks display when we stayed.
Large, excellent equipped fitness centre with cool outdoor glass bottom pool perched 6 storeys above the Dubai Marina.
