    Fantastic Hotel in the Heart of the Wharf
    This is my second time staycationing at the Intercontinental Wharf. My boyfriend and I love it -- the rooms are big and the beds are so comfortable! The staff is always so friendly too -- our doorman greeted us and was so helpful. We also loved our concierge -- my boyfriend got beautiful roses sent up to the room upon the concierge's suggestion and they also suggested a romantic restaurant downtown for dinner. We can't wait to come back in the summer and enjoy the pool!

    Highly recommend
    Beautiful hotel. In town for one night to see a concert at The Anthem and the hotel location was perfect. Valet attendants were extremely pleasant and attentive. Front desk staff were fast and friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great hotel, Great amenities, Great location!!! But the underground parking across from hotel was confusing, exit stairs were gated closed! Had to exit to street by walking back up the ramp we drove in on... not safe or convenient

    We had a wonderful stay. We came for a concert at the Athem, the location was perfect. When we checked in Terry was amazing. We wanted a late check-in and she was very friendly and helpful. Signed us up for the rewards program. She loves her job and it shows. Room was very comfortable. Only one complaint and no Golf Channel on TV. The Wharf is a very cool area. Look forward to the next concert at the Athem and a stay at the Intercontinental.
