Seriously, the hairdryer allowed you to be ready so much faster! The room was nice with spacious bathroom. Concierge help was outstanding giving us outstanding dinner recommendations. The bar was a great spot for a pre-dinner drink or a night cap. It was a great location for walking around and dinner.

Our stay at the InterContinental Porto was very nice. The hotel is beautiful and the room was spacious, clean and neat. The service was good. We had the opportunity to have dinner on the Terrace with both the food and the service being excellent. One note: I with they had a breakfast option if you wanted just a cup of coffee and a roll without having to do the whole breakfast buffet.

Everything about our stay, especially over the Xmas holiday was perfect! Front desk staff was super helpful and due to my IHG status, we even got upgraded to the two-level suite thanks to the Virtuoso benefits! Highly recommend this hotel when staying in Porto!
