Big. well cleaned rooms - separate beds possible - qualified, english speaking and helpful personal - delicious rich and varied breakfast - voucher to eat at nights in the restaurants : lebanese, asiatic, seafood, brasilian, belgian, aso. Lot of beers avalaible in the Biergarten. Taxi about 12 Dirhams to the Marina Mall (2.5 km away from the Intercontinental). From the Marina Mall free shuttle to the Dubai Expo2020. 2 hours a ride, take the first ride at 8h00 - sleep in the bus - be the first to visit Expo2020 at 10h00 and don't queue before the pavilions! Mixed visitors : european - others Beautiful view on the Etihad towers. Caution : you have to leave the sea at 18h00 when the sun is getting down. After that, they don't let you in.

Excellent return to Intercontinental, yet again welcomed with very friendly concierge and check in staff, Melanie very helpful as always. City view room was great and cleaned meticulously every day. All restaurants were well stocked and all staff so helpful; Milanie-Selections, Gary-ChoGao, Von-Bayshore, Daniel-Byblos were excellent in directing there staff, who were exceptional and a massive credit to the Hotel. It's not really fair to single out individuals as the hotel needs all there staff to work hard. However a special mention must go to Head Chef Daniel. Trixia Chef Selections and Gary in Cho Gao. We look forward to seeing you all again next year. Read less
