Located on the soigné boulevard of Koenigsallee, the elegant vibe at this urban stay begins when you enter the lobby, with its soaring light-filled atrium, and continues into the guestrooms with rich wood paneled walls, plush bedding and a warm, soothing color palette. Visitors on business in Dusseldorf will appreciate the 24-hour gym with pool and sauna — not to mention that when the meetings are over, a huge selections of whiskey and cocktails await in the clubby lounge.
In the Area
To get the lay of the land, head to the top of Rheinturm Duesseldorf, an observation tower offering panoramic views all the way to Cologne, then come back down to earth at two of the city’s great art museums, Kunstsammlung, or K20, a modern art museum with an excellent collection of Paul Klee paintings — the first collection the institution acquired in the 1960s — and the Kunsthalle, another contemporary venue that showcases thoughtful German and international art. After dark, reserve a seat at The Apollo, a concert hall showing a roster of high-energy dance performances and shows, and end the evening with a glass of fine bubbles at http://www.champagner-galerie.de on Koenigsallee.
How to Get There
We have just returned from a busness travel to Dusseldorf, to visit the dental show in Koln. We follow this exhibition every 2 years, always staying in Dusseldorf. First time in Intercontinental. Superb room, really a 5 star hotel, excellent cleaning and mainly very friendly stuff. In particular in front desk, Jean D Wasserman, solved all our inquiries. The hotel served excellent breakfast, really healthy. Nice and comfortable bar for the night.
All my recommendation for a perfect hotel in the heart of Ko avenue.
They even organized tickets the opera performance!! Thanks to concierge
It was a great 5 statr hotel
This hotel is nery nice, service is also great, location is in the heart of the city.
I choose this hotel for the gym and pool. gym was great its holmes plcae. but the pool was closed at this days for renovation.
3rd Stay at the IHG Düsseldorf Hotel. Perfect as ever. Nice and clean rooms. Adoreable staff. Nice Club Lounge. Business Services at its best. Will try to come back soon. Hope to get a nice room in top level again.
Helped me and my son out of a situation caused by another hotel. They were simply amazing. service and help was fantastic. the room was excellent. The breakfast is very good and finally what a great location.
We booked for 2 nights an executive suite (like 3 years ago) to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
We were warmly welcomed back: Front office clearly had read my earlier comments about the hotel: namely that I found the rooms rather outdated. F.O told me that rooms had been refurbished since; Indeed: Carpeting, curtains and dusk lamps have been changed and the sofa is more contemporary. What little changes can do!
Unfortunately the bathroom hasn’t been changed: still there is a completely transparent glass wall between shower and toilet. A little bit of privacy would be better. You wonder what the interior decorator would have in mind or at home. A milk glass wall would solve the problem. Also the floor of the toilet gets wet and slippery (dangerous) after having used the shower and sliding door.
Regrettable is the plastic mattress protector directly under the bottom sheet; You feel like staying in a cheap holiday house. Better mattress protectors, that prevents you from sticking to your bed, are available for high class hotel business: that’ s for sure.
The nice executive suite we had (818) was at the backside of the hotel (more quiet) and had a large balcony across the entire width of the room.
Turndown service still doesn’t take and replace used coffee cups and plates, nor supplements the Nespresso.
It was rather quiet in the hotel, in contrast to 3 years ago when the hotel was (over)crowded, due to a boat show. The consequence now was probably that coffee and pastry were served in the executive lounge instead of taking it yourself. In the bar, where we had an aperitif, there were hardly any other guests.
Outside the hotel there is a little terrace for smokers. It’s a pity that ash trees aren’t cleaned regularly.
Also in the breakfast room it was very quiet; reason probably that at 10 a.m. (breakfast is served till 10.30 a.m.) of all different meats just 2 slices were available. Breakfast was o.k. but we had the intention to have breakfast in the executive lounge next morning, were breakfast is in fact the same and the atmosphere is more cosy.
What bothered us was that kitchen staff at 10.30, clearing the breakfast buffet, threw all rolls and breads (even the not cut ones) from the bread bowls in an old cardboard box. It might be given to a “food bank” or thrown away. But it doesn’t give a very sustainable impression. And preferably not in front of guests, still enjoying their breakfast.
Staff is very friendly, attentive and well trained (most of them very young in contrast to doorman, luggage carrier and one breakfast waitress).
The first night of our stay I unfortunately got a very swollen leg, that was very painful. So after breakfast we decided that I had to see a physician and we called for assistance of the hotel in such cases and explained the problem. Within a few minutes the employee called back and told us that a physician could come to the hotel, but that the physician had told him he would not only charge €170,00 (Switzerland is cheaper!) but also wouldn’t tell him when he would come to see me.
Despite the adequate help of the staff to quickly find a physician, we decided not to wait until the physician would wish to come (it could take hours) and immediately checked out.
Finally I ended up in a Dutch hospital were a serious bacterial infection was diagnosed due to an earlier operation. So it was a good decision not to wait for the physician and check out earlier than desired. Regrettable, but better next time.
Compliments to the staff, they did their outmost best.
