There is quite a lot...

I didn't stay in this hotel but dined twice in its main restaurant Anise . This is a buffet restaurant . The choice was very large and the food was excellent . Brilliant choices of sea-food, roast meats and Asian plus excellent deserts and splendid cheese board . Well worth a visit .

I stayed at the Intercontinental Festival City for 10 nights on a recent business trip to Dubai.

We had the luck to stay in one of the two bedrooms club suite a couple of days ago. Great view, extremely spacious and comfortable. We really enjoyed it! The breakfast is one of the best in Dubai, nonetheless, some more "green" options like fruits and vegetables would be great.
