Great location in Dubai. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is connected by air conditioned tunnel Festival City shopping mall. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast served daily in the restaurant is very good. There are plenty of free spaces to conduct casual meetings.

Although we have stayed at the InterContinental in Festival City on numerous occasions I have to say that it just gets better and better!

Intercontinental is a short 10 min taxi hop from Dubai airport making it very convenient for business meetings. Rooms are nice. Dinner options are limited. The Crowne Plaza next door has a nice Belgian Cafe with nice views and atmosphere. There is an indoor walkway to the neighboring mall.
