InterContinental Lisbon

Were you generally happy with the hotel?
Yes. 8/10

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Executive River View ---> Duplex Suite

How was the room?
ca. 60 sqm, 18th floor, 1small bedroom, 1 living room with 1 sofa, desk, TV & WC, no table for dinner. Nice modern design, recently renovated.

How is the exec. lounge?
Breakfast: 6.30-11am.
Tea time: 2-5pm. Offering was decent, little pastries and sandwiches.
Happy hour with light dinner from 5 to 7pm. Mostly miniature canapés.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
2 tea bags from the lounge .....

How was the mini-bar?
Very nice. See pictures below.
My grandma will miss the 50€ rosé champagne if mini-bar cap 50USD/night comes

What was good?
- Entire Mini-bar was complimentary.
- Room, lobby & lounge recently renovated.
- lounge offerings.

What was bad?
- Highest category, that is not excluded from upgrades, without a bathtub. I definitely did no expect that.
- No SPA.
- Mini-bar in living room level 0, bed room level 1. So had to climb stairs, up & down, every time I or my grandma wanted sth.
- Got a courtesy call prior arrival informing me, I was upgraded to Presidential Suite. I double checked this on the app. With joy I invited my aunt and cousin to accompany me to enjoy the extra space.
Fortunately, both had no time. A few hours before arrival the app showed me Duplex Suite.
- No breakfast in restaurant.

Value for €?
Paid about 170EUR/night with IHG meeting credits prepaid card. With lounge & mini-bar, it was good value.

Would you return?
Yes. But will definitely not book higher category than standard room.
