I stayed at a lot of InterContinental hotels and I personally like this chain a lot, but the Abu Dhabi InterContinental hotel is very average. The rooms are clean, basic, so don't expect luxury. The buffet breakfast does not offer any unique experience, the variety on the buffet is basic, quality is ok and service is not as good as...
