Restaurant runs 24 hours a day. Breakfast is a little chaotic with only limited space. Choice of a buffet or al a carte if on B&B package which makes a nice...

We have stayed at this hotel 2x in 2 months during an overnight layover and each visit was absolutely perfect. This is anything but a typical airport hotel. It's more expensive than others in the area (~$300+/night), but well worth the extra cost for many reasons. Rooms: Have stayed in both the King Standard and King Executive. The latter justifies...

Its merely 100 metres to the hotel from the customers exit so you can't get more convenient. As usual at all InterContinentals that staff are great and the rooms are immaculate. The porters will get you a airport trolley for your bags when you check out which is a great help.
