Stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip. I've attended functions here before and guests spoke highly of the hotel. It's certainly comfortable, my room was a good size and the room service meal was very good (massive serving!). A few key points though stopped me from rating it higher. Firstly, the equipment in the hotel gym... More

The Sydney Intercon used to be our favourite Sydney hotel but after our last stay we need to reassess our thoughts.Being a Platinum Ambassador for IHG I wanted to treat my wife to a nice weekend away and as I had a free night voucher which had to be used prior to the end of the year I booked two...

We had an unplanned visit to Sydney because of a misconnection at the Sydney airport. Fortunately we chose the InterContinental, which couldn't have been a better choice for our stay. When the desk clerk heard that the day was a major anniversary for my wife and I, he had us upgraded to a Sydney Harbor view and had a bottle... More

The InterContinental Sydney is all you would expect of a top end hotel in Sydney. The reception staff are very attentive and will go out of their way to assist. The jewel in the crown of this hotel, literally, is the club floor located at the top of the hotel. The view is outstanding with windows on 3 sides and... More

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the past twenty years. It is in a great location, some rooms have fantastic views, and the atrium is very nice. But the hotel is getting tired. The rooms are not sound proofed to today's standards - I could hear the man in the room next door talking on his... More

This was my first visit to an Intercontinental Hotel, and from what I experience I would defiantly be back in a flash. Upon arrival the staff were there ASAP to take our bags they even held our bags for a couple of hours as we arrived too early for our room to be open and didn't want to carry our... More

We stayed at the InterContinental Sydney for the first time, the night before we were to start our cruise from Circular Quay. The room was a corner room looking out over circular quay, by far one of the best rooms with a view we have ever stayed in. Location, well you could not get any better. The breakfast in the... More

My recent stay at the IC Sydney was excellent- just like all my other stays at this hotel over the last 12 months or so. I find the staff at reception to be consistently polite, friendly and only too happy to assist with any requests and queries. My room during this recent stay was the executive suite- this was immaculately... More

Stayed for 3 nights and had a good time. Room was comfortable and view over harbour was great from 30th floor. Paid for club room access for last night well worth it as food was great as was the view. Riana was very helpful at reception nothing was too much trouble for her. Location is very good close to Circular... More

I have stayed here numerous times but had not returned here for at least two years. Upon check-in was asked to wait as the Duty Manager wanted to speak to me. Turns out he remembered me from two years ago and wanted to say hello and ensure my stay was enjoyable. Such an approach sums up the quality of the... More
