I’ve been here three times already and still feel like writing a review like if it was the first. I love it here on all fronts, the attention, the decor, the room amenities and morning breakfast making of your stay a memorable one. I’ve been impressed every time by the staff’s care and the quality of my sleep feeling like repeating the experience every time I have the chance to.


I arrived at midnight and was informed of an upgrade due to non-availability of rooms on the executive floor. A large suite with two rooms, two single beds in one, a double bed in the other, a large living space and a kitchen. Located on the thirtieth floor, the suite offers a beautiful view of Dubai and the fountain below.


I loved the room, every detail counts: 

  • Half a dozen water bottles to hydrate during your stay. 
  • Soft pillows and a relaxing bed.
  • A large bathroom with a shower and bathtub.
  • A walking closet situated by the bedside.
  • Three bathrooms in just one suite.
  • All kind of amenities from a toothbrush, a sewing kit, show brush, mouthwash among others.


Breakfast is served every morning in the hotel’s vast restaurant proposing a wide variety of choices from the four corners of the world. 

Other than that, there is the mall: a mega mall where restaurants and shopping choices alongside Ikea and Carrefour would surely fill your time. I already reviewed many of the mall’s restaurants which you can put on your list. Eataly and Semsom remain my favorites.


Read his review and probably check the other two making sure to plan your next stay at the Intercontinental Festival City.
