Amazing ambiance. Excellent food quality. Nice music. Marvellous view. A day of its kind. I definitely would recommend visiting again. Prime location with an easy access and a sea view restaurant at the heart of Jeddah

Really loved my stay here. I spent considerable time researching the best area to stay. While the “new corniche”, which is about a 25 minute drive away, is indeed beautifully manicured, I actually preferred the location here at the Intercontinental, as a whole. King Fahd’s fountain is an epic site, and I had a beautiful view of it from my room. The hotel’s rooftop cafe is also a great place to relax and take in the view. The area as a whole had a very local and authentic feel. The grounds of the hotel are spectacular. The lobby has the “wow” factor, and and outside walking areas on the premises are very well maintained and visually appealing. The food is outstanding. Delicious and extensive breakfast spread. Even locals around town remarked that they knew the food at the Intercontinental is elite. What made the experience extra special is the staff. The entire team at the front desk was so friendly upon arrival, and always very helpful when it came to local recommendations and organizing a side trip. We were always greeted with smiles when we entered the lobby. Likewise, the team at the restaurants/breakfast area were great. I wish I remembered her name, but the waitress even remembered how I like my coffee, after the first day (her memory is clearly better than mine!). The Saudi coffee stand in the lobby in the mornings is a great touch as well. The only reason I took off a star is that the rooms really could use a facelift. They are clean, and everything was fine. But they’re a bit dated, and it seems time for a little glow-up. That being said, I did appreciate the fresh fruit basket waiting for me when I arrived. Little touches like that really add to the impression of a place. After spending 4 days in Jeddah, and seeing most of the neighborhoods, and some other hotels, my family and I agreed that we made the right choice and that we would choose the Intercontinental again. Thanks for a great stay!
