Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
4.0 of 5 bubbles
Our family of 4 stayed 2 nights mid of CNY. The hotel was beautiful and the lobby have a clear view of the snow mountain. It is located in the south end of the old town and so a great location to explore the old town. The rooms were clean with Chinese tea set ready for drinking. As a platinum member, the staff apologised for not upgrading my room as it was peak season and offered us free breakfast. Upon checked in, we found spider in our room which i promptly removed and the same evening my girls were terrified with another big spider in their room which took me some time to get rid. We know it is surrounded by greenery so this happens. In the evening after a long day we decided to have a quick simple meal in the hotel only to find out that only food available is Chinese restaurant so decided to have room service which has only 5 items. I expect a 5* hotel to do better than that on F&B offering. Overall still highly recommended and will be our hotel of choice in Lijiang.

Our recent 4 day stay at the Intercontinental Lijiang in an executive room for 2 adults and 2 young children was excellent. This is definitelv a top location for families with children located adjacent to the Ancient Town. Walking the Ancient Town from the hotel is a breeze with direct gate access.

The executive room fits four without a spare bed with one sleeping on the couch and three in the large bed which is a great plus as spare beds can be a real user of space even in a larger room.

The small shared garden is a nice touch and great for outdoor dining if eating in the room.

The breakfast buffet is expansive and suits a range of needs from child to adult and from Western to Asian which was perfect for our mixed family.

The children enjoyed the pool and children’s playroom which are great for end of day relaxation after a hard day of touring in Lijiang’s often cool rainy summer days.

A special thanks to Catherine in housekeeping/concierge for kindly seeing our left behind items made their way home by mail. And ofcourse thanks to Tony and all the staff in the Executive Center who made our stay very memorable.

This hotel is perfectly located on the edge of the Old Town with a back entrance that makes it very easy to get in and out. This is especially convenient during COVID when there are checkpoints at all the entrances which are especially burdensome for foreigners.

We really like our room which had a comfortable bed and really enjoyed the pillow menu.

The views from the main building of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain are spectacular (see the picture below). The breakfast was delicious with a lot of Western and Chinese choices. We also really enjoyed our spa experience with a great treatment experience which was very relaxing after several days of hiking.

We had an absolutely fantastic 4 days in Lijiang. The hotel is tremendous. Perfect location right in front of the ancient town.
All the staff are polite, competent and friendly, more than in other Chinese regions we have visited. We would like to make a special mention for the manager with the nickname Nil. He really looked after us with general advice and restaurant tips. Also the driver He Shoufu who we spent a day with. He drove us to Jade snow mountain and made sure we didn't get lost as a few things were a bit complicated, probably due to the Coronavirus.
The lady in the bar whose name we have forgotten looked after us on the two evening s we spent on the terrace. We will miss her this evening.
The view and experience on the terrace and inside the bar/café with the beautiful Mountain view was a special highlight.
We will definitely come back and can highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at InterContinental Lijiang for 2 nights on 21/22 October 2020 with my father. It is a very beautiful resort with very caring service. I met the GM Jason Chen upon arrival and thanks again for his warm welcome! Very comfortable guest room which made me even dont want to go out :) I highly recommend their Chinese restaurant with excellent food quality, the staff there named William Qin looked after us very well with our special preference - delighted! And duty manager Joey He also very helpful to arrange our departure limousine and take-away breakfast. I would like to congratulate Jason for a great job being done - an excellent team in creating memorable guest experience!!

Excellent location in the south side of the Unesco Da Yan old town district, rooms are spacious and well decorated, in the true comfort of an Inter Continental hotel. I've been to Lijiang more than ten years back, while this property was a Crowne Plaza I believe. But the gardens and structure of this property is just amazing, you can walk around the compound if you have had enough of the crowded alleys within the old town.

Breakfast was more than sufficient with huge variety of options, and the spa is very nice as well. As there are many eating options within the old town, all my other meals were consumed within the old town. There's a quiet Starbucks on the southern side of the old town, which is quite close to the hotel. It's smaller than the main one in the northern part of the old town where, but a much quieter one.

I would return here any time of the year, as this is a great property in Lijiang. As the newer hotels are mostly quite far from the most meaningful part of Lijiang.

We stayed at indigo but had our breakfast and dinner in Intercontinental. The buffet breakfast was so mediocre, with hardly any choice. Quite disappointing for an intercontinental hotel. We had dinner and whatever we ordered from the beer list was apparently not available. I ordered tuna salad with potatoes and the tuna were stinky and spoiled. The staff tried hard and were pleasant, however, the whole food experience was horrible. No wonder we were the only people in the restaurant.

We loved out stay at this beautiful and unique property. The hotel is gorgeous, but the service really made our experience memorable. Every staff member showed so much care, it was quite remarkable! We stayed in suite 6034 which has a beautiful view of the mountains and was fully equipped with luxury linens, huge soaking tub, and two bathrooms. The club offerings for cocktail time were so extensive we ended up having dinner there most nights! Thank you to General Manager, Jason and his whole team for a flawless experience.

We arrived in Lijiang from Dali for our summer holidays and the experience here at the Intercontinental Hotel Lijiang has been amazing. Everyone made us feel like we were at our home. From the minute we checked in, we were greeted by Tony from Guest Services with a huge smile and attended to all our needs so patiently. Each day, all the staff from the morning breakfast to housekeeping to concierge, everyone greeted us sincerely and warmly and engaged us in conversation.
Venus from Club Lounge recommended places of interest to visit. Eric from Concierge helped us with tickets to the Lijiang shows.
We were extremely well taken care of. Kudos to the entire team at Intercontinental! We will definitely remember our holiday. It’s the warmth of the team that makes an extraordinary memorable holiday

The hotel was surprisingly even greater than expected. The best place to be is at the lounge bar, with the outstanding view of the Jade Dragon Mountain. The rooms are comfortable, the bathtub was fantastic, beds were soft and nice, the living room was cozy and all nicely decorated. The area of the hotel is clean and beautiful with all the gardens and decoration, making it a pleasant place to take a walk too.
The only thing that could have been a bit better is the main restaurant for lunch and dinner, the menu is far too short, and the staff barely speaks any English. But, at the Chinese restaurant, it was amazing.
When back in Lijiang, very likely will stay there again.

Sorry, Cheryl, I do not recall. Could you perhaps e-mail the hotel directly with your enquiry? Given their concern for their patrons, I would think they'd be glad to let you know.
