So pleased to see that Intercontinental Hotels have not lost their touch or vision. A full service facility without turning itself into a theme park as so many others have. Spent an afternoon brunch in the Al Ghazal Pub with Roger and Carlene both showing the best of what Intercontinental Hotels have been known for throughout the world ~ courtesy...

A superb hotel in terms of hospitality. Nice and clean rooms. Stayed in one of the club rooms and really liked that concept. They offer a decent choice of liquor in the club which is complimentary (included in your room charges, that is). The buffet layout during breakfast was good too. Two swimming pools, a restaurant by the side of...

This was the original lux hotel in Muscat- from the photos when it was built, it was the only building, surrounded by desert. Now it's part of a gently growing city. Business hotel, but families also - spectacular lobby, very atmospheric. This hotel will be updated/ demolished in the not too distant future no doubt, but it has worn well.

Stayed here with my wife for three nights. The staff were great in all parts of the hotel. We were kindly upgraded to a better suite than the one we had booked, which was good of them, and our room included access to the Club Lounge. The room was enormous but a little tired. It basically needs bringing up to...

I've stayed at a few hotels in Muscat over the years and it's always a difficult choice to find something in a "central" location as I do not drive. The Intercontinental has come through again - it looks dated from the outside, but it has been restored over the years and I've certainly stayed in grand dames in Paris and...
