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
Hotel is very well located at the main shopping street, just a few minutes walk from the center. Great selection of shops and restaurants around. Hotel is modern and rooms are one of the best I stayed at any Intercontinental. Service was friendly and pleasant. Club lounge is located at 2nd floor with great views of the lobby and sounds of piano music in the evenings. Club staff was very friendly and make you feel welcome. Hotel offers access to swimming pool and wellness at Holmes place, what is a wellness club next door. You can find your way through hallway directly from the hotel. Great Intercontinental experience.
This hotel is well located and a close walk to the famous shopping district.
We booked a room though internet and paid a bit more for a higher floor to avoid unpleasant traffic noises.
However, at check-in, we were first given a room at 3rd level and claimed that it was the best available room. We were a bit disappointed and asked why we were given such a lower floor when we paid for a higher floor. After we showed the check-in staff our e-booking, he then offered us the option of 7th floor room (and refund us the top-up we paid) or upgrade us to a suite at additional costs.
We picked the first option since we were only going to be staying for a night. The room turned out to be very nicely decorated and quiet. We did not have any complaints regarding the room itself.
However, we could not help but feel that the check-in staff was trying to pull a fast one on us - perhaps because we were Chinese and not Caucasians or Arabs. This hotel seems to have a lot of Caucasians and Arab guests. For the record - the person who checked us in was probably from Middle Eastern heritage.
If we had not persisted with evidence of a higher floor booking - we would have been shortchanged. It left a bad taste - I question the integrity of the hotel’s staff in this regard.
Regardless, the breakfast and high tea at the hotel were marvelous and service staff there were also very prompt and professional.
I visited the hotel with my wife and 3 children, the location is very good, the staff very friendly but the only problem is the Spa, Fitness and pool area, which are located in a separate building accessible from the hotel, and unfortunately it was under renovation. Besides this, it was a very pleasant experience on all levels.
