Stunning King suite with harbour views. Superb 3 course dinner at the Meat and Wine Co before attending performance of the Planets by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Opera House for Earth Hour....a truly magnificent weekend

We stayed at the InterContinental for only one night but were impressed with the hotel and it's staff. Our room had a view across the gardens and city, was clean and comfortable. The location for visitors is ideal. We ordered room service at 1am (after a party) and were not expecting too much. To our surprise the food was very... More

I stayed here for a working conference. The rooms were of the highest standard and the concierge service was one of the best i have ever experienced anywhere in the world. The view from my room was spectacular.

Last stay left me severely dissapointed. Long wait to check in. Standard room items like nespresso pods and soaps not refillled. Staff entering room without informing us. Numerous calls to concierge to try and rectify issues but staff didn't act without being chased up. I won't be returning until the hotel fixes its issues.

Stayed for three nights last week, clean/spotless room overlooking my Sydney's spectacular harbour. Opera cafe has boundless selection of food. The staff MAKE this hotel! Gracious, elegant and most helpful.

The Intercontinental is a first class hotel and great choice for business and pleasure travellers alike. Situated a stones throw from the CBD, Circular Quay and the Domain and Opera House you're in the middle of it all. The rooms are modern, comfortable and quiet. My only suggestion would be a more reasonably priced food menu.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions over the last few years and have recently been disappointed with the rather brusque formality at reception on our arrival. We had always been welcomed as if we were special and the service in the lobby coffee shop was very poor. It was as if we were the... More
