Hi, I have both booked right now and was leaning towards the Intercontinental as it was a better deal. But I read the thread on transportation from the airport and sure enough the X95 is great for the Hilton but not for the IC.
Not sure if there are other considerations to location as far as touring so I thought I would post here. We will arrive from Santorini, the flight arrives at 9:30am. Our plan was to tour Athens and head for the Acropolis in late afternoon as I have seen suggested. We fly back to the US the next morning. Open to any touring suggestions also.
