Very comfortable

I stayed here for Jazz Fest in 2014. This is my 3rd or 4th time staying here. It's a great hotel, centrally located with nice beds and a balcony off of the room. The only issue was some noise but that's because they're remodeling so it can be expected. I plan on staying here again in the future.

Great Location, Great Room service

Hotel was perfectly located for my business trip. Reception staff wasn't the friendliest, but overall good service. I believe the hotel is/was going through renovations, which is a good thing. Also great to be able to walk to the French quarter with ease. Best room service breakfast I've ever had.

Great hotel in great location

Great hotel in a great location, close distance to everything in the center, almost 15 - 20 minutes walk to Bourbon Street and Canal Street. The hotel is very clean and in a great condition. I would like to stay there again.

Romantic Couples Trip

Hotel is in process of bring renovated. We were given a king bed room on a newly renovated floor. It was like staying in a brand new hotel. The bed and pillows were fantastic! Location of the hotel is good probably better for business than leisure but fine for leisure as it is about four blocks from Canal Street. Since renovations are continuing there is noise also noise from St. Charles Ave. streetcar. Rooftop pool was great, pool a bit bigger than I thought it would be. When renovations are complete, the Intercontinental will be among the top 10 hotels in the city. LG Flat screen TV in room was large and excellent!

Weekend getaway

There was a lot of construction going on at the hotel. The construction did not occur on Saturday/Sunday but on Monday/Tuesday we woke up to the sound of drilling at around 8am. The staff warned us of this upon arrival. Can't beat the location and the value, though.

Location good. Remodalelation affect the experience

The hotel is very well located, just a few blocks from the French quarter. Nevertheless, the remodelation that are going on in the hotel affects severely the customers, because the work during weekdays starts really early. In addition, the hotel didn´t provide coffee and coffee maker to the guest, as many of the well-known brands do or the price that is pay.

I'm sure it's a great hotel but not under construction

MY room was a non-smoking room that reeked of cigarettes.The bed was fine but the bottom sheet was too small. Because the hotel was under construction the noise was ever present during the day.
