I stayed at the Intercontinental Festival City for 10 nights on a recent business trip to Dubai.

We had the luck to stay in one of the two bedrooms club suite a couple of days ago. Great view, extremely spacious and comfortable. We really enjoyed it! The breakfast is one of the best in Dubai, nonetheless, some more "green" options like fruits and vegetables would be great.
