I have visited the Intercontinental in Dubai Festival City several times and I enjoy coming back. Friendly service, great rooms, a good gym and a great Belgian bar with an outside terrace - almost pitch perfect. It's conveniently close to the airport (as I mostly stay less than 3 nights and transfer to other cities in the region.

.......if it wasn't for the slightly overpriced rates and slightly excessive cost of F&B which are as high as if not greater than NY or London however, with the majority of us staying here on business where not too much consideration is given to such matters, I can not fault the service, staff, quality of food, cleanliness or attention to...

The InterContinental Festival City was my home for a week while on business in Dubai. I found the hotel to be excellent, large comfortable rooms, exceptional food, a well equipped gym and friendly service. The only possible negative point is that it is far enough from the main attractions in Dubai to require using a taxi to get there. Otherwise...
