InterContinental Dubai Festival City

Dubai Festival City, Festival Blvd., off Rabat St., Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Fashioned along the lines of a sailing yacht, the hotel cuts a striking silhouette rising from the south bank of Dubai Creek. The sweeping marble foyer is a triumph of less-is-more modernism. The Intercontinental, opened in the beginning of 2008, has been designed for discerning travelers with MP3 docks and large flat-screen TVs standard furnishings. The pale contemporary rooms also have dressing areas and marble island baths for relaxing. The hotel caters to businesspeople with well-planned convention and meeting spaces and also to vacationers with its expansive free-form pool and sundecks, top-notch spa, and proximity to Festival City's shopping and dining.
