The Intercon in Abu Dhabi is in a great position just back from the Corniche. There are some incredibly glam places in this city, but for good honest value for a corporate traveller you can't beat a room on the higher floors with the executive club for special check in and out, business facilities, breakfast, morning tea, drinks, afternoon tea and evening drinks all complimentary. the staff were fantastic, always on the ball and very willing to assist.

Room Tip: Go the exec floors and you will save much more than the slight extra costs if, like us, you have time to kill between meetings.

This is the fourth time I stay in this hotel, my last review was entitled : "Third wonderful stay".. Although my room, the food, the cleanliness overall were perfect as usual, my check in was this time very upsetting. Just to mention that it all depends on the person who is behind the counter of the reception when you arrive !!!
My check-In lasted more than 15 minutes. Considering that I am a member of "IHG", this hotel's chain, I would have imagined a much better reception : so many questions, and so much delay for a prepaid stay, we felt like unwelcome strangers; having refused a credit-card's deposit for possible additional expenses, I have been suggested to pay cash every consumption with the refusal of the hotel to put eventual additional charges to my hotel's bill...I asked this person if he was a trainee, he responded he was a Front-Office supervisor.
I suggest to the Management to take measures for correct training of new (European) staff.

I have always been very grateful to the staff in this hotel, especially to Rami, the Front Office Manager, and Miss Lamia, the Guest-Relations Manager, who very kindly and very professionally solved rapidly this issue.
Despite this unhappy reception, my stay was overall very enjoyable.

Once again please accept our deepest apologies and gratitude for your continued patronage. WE hope to receive you again in the future and promise your experience will be just as good as your first three visits, if not better.

A little dissapointed by being cut off by the roadworks, but overall good quality.

Room Tip: Pay for club and hope for an upgrade

We arrived very late in the evening and we could not fault the front desk staff, extremely efficient and they kindly upgraded our suite which was a great start to a fabulous holiday and a very long journey. All the staff throughout our stay be it in the club room which was one of the best we have been in, the restaurant staff or the room cleaner were just so friendly and really made are holiday very special, i have never had so much evian water replenished in any hotel anywhere which as an evian drinker could not have made me happier (small things)!!. We ate in Chamas which was my favourite, Fishmarket twice which was fabulous, we loved the fact you could choose any fish and any sauce oh and the oysters were just great and a new edition to our diet, and the Yacht club which does go on until early mornings (take your earplugs if your not a night bird) it was a great end to the evenings. The beach was a little noisy but you kind of get used to the building work that is going ahead at present, lovely pool area with great service and great pizza for lunch in the Italian. We did venture out to Emirates palace and the new Etihad Towers which was much nicer than the palace we can really recommend beirut restaurant in the Towers if you want a change of scenery however it really is not necessary. Fine bottles of wine are expensive but no more than anywhere else in the world. All in all for a week away for new year we could not fault this hotel yes there are new expensive hotels being built but for relaxed and not stuffy 5 star you really can't go wrong with the intercontinental and to top it all we managed to get Coldplay tickets on New Years Eve, what more could we have asked for!, we will absolutely come back and stay here.

Room Tip: Join the ambassador programme and choose a club room at least on the higher floors.
