This is definitely not a boutique hotel but is great for conferences. The Intercontinental are used to having groups and are well equipped. Unfortunately I did not have a room looking over the bay, but nevertheless, it was very comfortable and had everything needed for a successful business trip. As a group, we had negotiated wifi which I get the... More

We stayed 3 nights with our two teenage children, it being their first trip to Sydney. From the moment we stepped out of our transport we were greeted by the most helpful and friendly staff I have encountered! We arrived early and with our membership they had our room ready to go right away. Upon leaving a very generous late... More

Great location close to circular quay, large room with desk, sofa and bench. Complimentary tea/coffee in room, everything else was chargeable. Our room on 14th floor had a pretty average view looking onto Bridge Street. Unfortunately, had to chase up delivery of suitcases (took an hour) and extra bed for my daughter with the front desk. Full breakfast in the... More

Stayed here one night for business. Arrived very early and was slowed to use gym and facilities following long haul arrival. The room I had was high up and had great views across the botanical gardens, across the harbour and out to the heads. Staff very friendly. Would stay again just for the view!

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in October while enjoying the sites of Sydney. I had moved from the Hilton to the Intercontinental as the rooms were bigger and we had 3 of us squeezing in for two nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, which was a bit of a change from the Hilton. The hotel... More

This is the best hotel I ever stayed. The rooms are spacious, the bed so comfortable, everything is so luxury. Australia the Intercontinental comes out as the best hotel. During our stay the hotel made only two minor mistakes and these were remedied brilliantly within minutes. It is so close walking distance to the water ferry and subway. Many places... More

Stayed here for a weekend. Great location, walking distance to sit and relax by the harbour water. Also walked to Pitt street for shopping. Beautiful interior, very lovely very clean rooms. I would stay here again.
