Stayed 1 night while attending the Santas Snowy Christmas for work function at Convention Centre. Room was clean & tidy. I did request light milk on our booking special request section, which was obviously overlooked because all we found was full cream milk in our fridge. I thought the kettle sitting on a rather small shelf was positioned in an awkward spot, way too small & not enough room to on that shelf to spread cups saucers mugs out comfortably, plus the fridge no where close to tea & coffee facility, the fridge is located in a cupboard under the TV, so your going from one section to another to make a hot drink. The room was meant to have city views but the room we were given didn't have those specific views. We did have a nice breakfast the next morning. The king size bed offered a comfortable nights sleep. I thought the dressing gowns were very small, my hubby could not fit into them. No shower caps on offer in bathroom, we always normally find one is supplied in bathrooms in other places we've stayed at. I was willing to offer some ideas I thought would improve the room as I have worked in this area of guest services in town before, but no one got back to me to hear my ideas. But it is a lovely place to stay in city.

I had read that the Intercontinental Adelaide was dated and desperately in need of an upgrade. Yes, I could see certain areas of the hotel which could do with improvements but overall I loved my stay. The welcome from reception staff was close to perfect, I was given an upgrade to a River View Club room from a City View Club room in recognition of my Ambassador status and a late checkout confirmed. I arrived early and my room was ready, off to a great start! The view from my room was quite breathtaking and the room itself was classy and inviting. I loved the huge bathroom and the ample supply of towels and toiletries. The Club Lounge was the piece de resistance! Such a beautiful area to enjoy drinks and canapes in the evening and breakfast in the morning. The staff were the icing on the cake in the Club Lounge and could not do enough for you. I will most certainly make the Intercontinental my hotel of choice when I visit Adelaide in the future.
