What a stunning enterance statement and "welcome" to a beautiful stylish hotel "Harbour Views" we're not as good as expected, but the hotel room was just glorious, great it is.... Have a drink in the atrium bar - the ambience was just wonderful Don't let a taxi drop you off at the "back enterance" - no where near as impressive... More

this was my first visit to Sydney and a friend suggested i stay here. the hotel is the erstwhile site of the Treasury building which has been very tastefully converted into a modern hotel. from our check in to check out, it was the most wonderful experience. the rooftop bar is great for getting in views of the Harbour bridge...

MY wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding on a points break with IHG. My Ambassador status was noted upon check-in. We stayed in a City View room and it was adequate for what we needed. I was a little disappointed we were not upgraded, but in hindsight, I think one would have been wasted on us,... More

I fell ill while staying at the InterContinental Sydney (as a result of bacteria I picked up on the Diamond Pricess Cruise Ship). The staff at the hotel took excellent care of me, were very concerned and very attentive. They truly went above and beyond in terms of providing personal assistance to me when I was simply unable to care... More

The hotel is very well positioned adjacent to the botanical gardens. The bathrooms could now do with updating but the room size is adequate and the beds comfortable. There is a small swimming pool which was filled with kids when I took a dip. The breakfast and dinner buffets are good with a large range.

Ok, first off, the views at this hotel are amazing. Our room (I paid extra) overlooked the opera house and we had a view of the harbour bridge. That being said, we wish we went with one of the other hotels that offer similar views. We arrived after an early morning flight. Understandably, our room was not ready. The manager... More
