near to everything in Dubai and in the heart of festival city and its shopping, leisure and restaurants. food in the main restaurant is amazing especially the extra-ordinary buffet dinner which is never found else where.the only disadvantage is the small sized pool relative to the large number of rooms. I will come back again for sure

The hotel is connected to Festival City Mall which is much bigger than it first seems....we only discovered this on the last day. The only negative is the location which is quite some way from all the main tourist...

Me and my friends went to intercon to eat at Anise. Its a seafood's night and the group is craving for seafoods. We had a wonderful time because of great foods and also special thanks to the staff and a lady name Bev who seems to be tireless and would not see any stress during that busy night...absolutely A1 service!!!

The rooms are average but the breakfast buffet is scrumptious. Overall, I'm very pleased with this hotel, the staff are courteous and professional, lthe rooms are clean and well appointed albeit a little on the small side, the location is also convenient, near the airport and the dubai mall.

Wonderful hotel connected to the Mall , staff were friendly, health club was Cousy, room was clean and comfortable. Something I should mention that all intercontinental staff were ready to help in all places , I felt how they are customer oriented. Since it is connected to the mall give you the feeling of comfortable and easy shopping.
