Recent guest reviews

All staff were friendly ans efficient. We had a couple of requests outside our official reservation times (arriving early, leaving our bags & car after checkout to pick up later) and they arranged everything seamlessly.

Very central to everything

Great location. Front desk staff was great. Have to ask to get your room refreshed - COVID issue. Would stay again.

The property was in an excellent location. The staff was awesome at fulfilling requests. The restaurant Roaring Fork was also very good. I only wish that the bar was open. It looked beautiful and was the only one in the area with a humidor. Overall 4.8 stars!!!!!!!

Staff was very welcoming as soon as me and my friends arrived. I liked that the pool was open till 11 unlike most hotels actually gave us time to relax before me and my friends went out for the night.

Excellent hotel to stay at.

Liked rooftop seating area. Drinks were overpriced.

Nice hotel. Not lixurious . Staff is very friendly. Area is perfect. Close to everything. Fair value.

The Intercontinental was a very nice place. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The building was up to date, clean, and well taken care of. There is no parking, but the valet did a great job and you never waited long. We had a very nice experience at the Intercontinental.

Everyone was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the location was great.

Great location friendly staff great outdoor terrace

It was a nice property and well maintained for its age. I wish there were more simple features like USB outlets in different parts of the room and not just on one side of the bed. There should have been free WiFi. Couch was not that comfortable.
