InterContinental Madrid

- What is your IHG Rewards Club status?
Spire Royal Ambassador

- Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes, as always

- Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked cheapest advance rate and was upgraded to a Club Junior suite with balcony (I specifically asked for a room with balcony and sun, which means the room at the end of the corridor, avenue side).

I also booked a room for friends with points: they received a club room with terrace and garden view

- How are the rooms?
Around 45 sqm
Classic and elegant design.
Seating area with desk
Flat screen television set, with large selection of international channels
Bedroom with very comfortable bed
Marble bathroom with separate walk in shower. Agraria amenities
Very quiet.
Large terrace balcony.
View over the city
Fast wifi
No iPhone dock
No plugs close to the bed

- How is the exec. lounge?
  • Warm classic design
  • Very friendly staff
  • Very good breakfast with hot and cold option
  • 2 free PC with Internet and printer
  • Evening food was pretty poor
  • Nice selection of sweet and salted canapés during the day

- What was good and what was bad?

GOOD
  • The staff is really nice at IC Madrid
  • Luxurious atmosphere in public places
  • Nice courtyard garden
  • Location is very convenient from airport (metro station 80 meters from the hotel) and shopping: the Salamenca district is one of the most elegant for luxury boutiques and concept stores (Isolée, Gallery Madrid, ...) and "secret" museums (Fundación Juan March, Residencia des estudiantes, Museo Cerralbo, etc.)
  • Pretty nice fitness centre

BAD
Nothing

- Value for $ or IHG Rewards Club Points? Would you return?
Yes
