initially chosen for a conference & booked by the company, we were extremely happy with the choice made for us. The Intercontinental is right in the heart of the bustling CBD yet just a step of two back allowing a degree of distancing from the noise. We stayed during Sydney's spectacular Vivid festival & the location was outstanding. Service is... More

Have spent a few Christmas nights here over the last few years and always get a suite overlooking the Harbour. The views are just wonderful. The Executive club lounge is also beautiful. Get there early to make sure you get one of the outdoor tables. The breakfast up here is also excellent, but so too is the buffet in Cafe... More

The hotel is very conveniently located about one block away from Circular Quay. The foyer and guest areas are a little dark, I would call 'Gothic' in appearance. Staff are friendly and responsive to guest needs. Our standard room was larger than the average and very quiet.

I love this hotel. Very classy at a reasonable price. Stayed many times when in Sydney. Cannot fault location, accommodation, service, staff and everything about it. Restaurant dining is first class with first class service. It is located close to shopping, transport, ferries and vicinity of CBD. Give it a try because you will love it!

We stayed at this luxury hotel for 3 nights during the Vivid festival. The location can't be beaten as it is only 2 minutes walk to circular quay and 5 min to Opera house , The Rocks and Sydney central. The staff were very well trained and nothing too much trouble , rooms were large , clean and very comfortable.... More

I travel to Sydney monthly for work, and when available on our corporate rate I choose the Intercontinental. I have stayed many times at this hotel, up to 15 to 20 nights each year over the last 3 years. I don't need to write a long review. This hotel is excellent and is my first choice in Sydney.

Stayed for 2 night at the start of the Vivid Festival. A perfect location to see the attractions at Martin Place, the Quary and The Rocks, a short stroll to Walsh Bay. The rooms were bright and clean, the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Service was great throughtout the hotel apart from the Club Lounge, where there could have been more... More

the shower head has tiny holes spitting pitiful amounts of water. I was really cold showering there as there ,was hardly any water. I ended up hopping out and switching to bath instead. Sad for a 5 star hotel

Amazing team! Every interaction with any team member, right across the hotel was very pleasant. Their 'Everything is possible' attitude was exactly what I needed whilst staying there. Well done Intercontinental, I'll definitely be back soon.
