Great location - close to Circular Quay, and backing onto the Botanical Gardens. Within easy reach of everywhere you'd want to go in the city. Good size rooms - I booked a King city side room (base level room), and had no complaints. Good room service, and friendly staff. Stayed five nights. Only draw back was the bed was not... More

Excellent large roomand the bed was perfect. . Frig that kept milk cold. Clean, comfortable. Slippers and robe provided. AND they let us check in at 8:30 a.m. after we got off the cruise ship nearby. Great location to park and opera house. Very walkable to Circular Quay docks and museums. Not cheap but worth the cost. The bathroom faucet... More

The Intercontinental is very well located, being a short walk from the key attractions and the transport links of Circular Quay. Rooms are of a good standard, but bathrooms a little dated with showers over the bath, rooms with with views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House are a premium, but worth it for a few nights.

Stayed for a week in a non-harbour view room. The hotel itself is wonderfully located - only a couple of minutes walk to Circular Quay, the Opera House or the CBD. Fantastic for either leisure or business. Service was excellent from all the staff, made to feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. The hotel restaurants are very nice,... More

As I recently celebrated a "milestone" birthday, it was decided another stay at Intercontinental Sydney would be the best way to do so. Easy arrival and check in to find our room had been upgraded, which was lovely. We had already booked for the Intercontinental Club access. On arrival in our room, I found a lovely bottle of wine, magnificent... More

InterContinental has a great location with a beautiful view of Circular Quay. We chose it for our honeymoon trip to Australia and stayed there twice over 3 weeks. The location is close to the train station, so it's very convenient to get there from the airport. You have all the restaurants and bars in Circular Quay around you and the... More

Just stayed overnight in a Harbour View suite. It was perfect. The views of Sydney Harbour were stunning, and we had wonderful views of the Lunar New Year fire works. The suite really gives you that "apartment feel" and the upgrade to 4pm late check out ( at cost) really made the suite great value. The beds were the most... More
