Hotel 4

InterContinental, Dubai

The InterContinental was the first five star hotel in Dubai, having been built in 1975 - although I think it was originally the building next door. Just a snippet I picked up from the tour bus commentary! Anyway, another very nice IC. I wasn't greeted as a Royal Ambassador, but was upgraded to a most acceptable Junior Suite, with an extraordinarily spacious bathroom. Club access was not provided. My welcome gift was a business card holder. The hotel has a good reputation for its restaurants, which are reckoned to be among the finest in Dubai. I sampled the Palm Court ("contemporary steakhouse") and the Fishmarket ("fresh seafood restaurant") and would rate the steakhouse as excellent and the seafood restaurant as probably the finest example of its type that I have ever encountered
