A 10 min drive from the airport this hotel is at a very good location overlooking the creek. The area is open with no obstruction to the views around the hotel. The rooms are big, spacious and well designed. Finally the hotel is linked to the Festival city mall, which gives you a lot of options for food, entertainment and shopping.
"A Short Stay"
We arrived in Dubai around midnight after a long flight from NY and were met by a driver from the hotel. A 10 minute drive brought us to the hotel where we were graciously greeted by everyone. We stayed only 1 night since we left for Abu Dhabi that afternoon - again, with a driver from the hotel. We stayed in Rm 1223 and had access to the Club Lounge on the 26th floor. Both had great water views. The Lounge (with a Guest Relations Desk) is a restful retreat, with fantastic staff, and an excellent breakfast menu. Although we didn't partake, the Lounge offers High Tea in the afternoon, and hot canapés in the evening. Booking a Club Intercontinemtal Room is highly advisable for the view and the amenities provided! Also, ask for a high level floor to buffer the noise from the construction that is going on.
Always a brillaint stay at this hotel, good service through out, big thanks to Meshack & Jerome for looking after me round the pool every day, would highly recommend staying here, 10 mins taxi in to Downtown (burj khalifa) etc.
"Great hotel "
Had to be in Dubai for 3.5 days and stayed at this hotel. It was a little out of the way but then again, everything in Dubai is a 20-25 minute commute. This hotel is great. Staff was truly friendly and the accommodations were amazing. The breakfast buffet and lunches are a true must try. I little far from the Dubai mall but literally connected to the Festival City Mall which the city is trying to get to the level of the Dubai Mall. Festival City Mall has an Eataly, Bucca de Peppi's, P FChangs, Magnolia Bakery, Cheesecake Factory and other eclectic choices from America. Magnolia is a local NY bakery that is delicious. Would definitely stay here again.
