We chose this hotel for a weekend scape, taking advantage of the summer rates. Check in was a bit odd, as no information about the facilities or even the location of the lift was provided. The lobby was busy with Brunch guests and we spent some time looking for the correct elevator to take us to our room, which was...

The hotel is located amidst lot of modern towers and skyscrapers but do not make a mistake as looks can be deceiving. To start with we had a family outing and booked total 9 rooms.

They have kids swimming area with slides and games.. Excellent for families. Breakfast is not what you expect from Intercontinental, the area is small, not up to 5 star hotel dining...

Stayed in the Abu Dhabi Intercontinental for 1 day only but was extremely pleased with the staff and the amenities. Abu Dhabi has a lot of different hotels on offer but I'm glad i choose this one as they also offered me a late 3pm checkout, since my flight was at 8pm.

Recently attended Friday Brunch on 15th July and it really was disappointing for the following reasons; A large booking was taken of 42 people that affected the available space to move around and the level of table service for drinks. Woefully understaffed for the number of people that had booked and attended. Drinks afterwards upstairs and the service was quite...

Just home following a 12 night stay at the Intercon Abu Dhabi. We arrived at the end of Ramadan so the hotel was quiet but the staff couldn't do enough for us.

Returned there for two nights with the family after a few years. Where to begin?? Never felt so pampered as a gold member before, lightening quick check in and whisked away to our suite.
