The two-in-one InterContinental and Crowne Plaza at Dubai Festival City has long been a good stop for anyone looking for a high quality hotel near Dubai International Airport.
As well as being only a short taxi ride from the terminals, we have often done our first night or last night of a holiday there as a money saver. Paying for an expensive beach-side resort when you are arriving at midnight or checking out at 7am for an early flight is a bad deal.
A new 508-room Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City opened this week. It is a good deal for anyone who likes the location – and the massive mall and leisure complex of Festival City – but wants a cheaper IHG option. It has three food and beverage outlets, a rooftop bar and a pool and fitness centre.
As an IHG Rewards Club redemption you will pay just 20,000 points per night. This is great value compared to the Crowne Plaza (45,000 points) and the InterContinental (50,000 points).
You can find out more about the hotel on its website here.
