The intercontinental hotel welcomes you with an awesome vintage look but my experience hasn't been that great. Stayed here for 4 nights in Aug 2015 in a standard city facing room. I complained many times that the room temperature control is not working and the room is not warm enough and it was getting quite cold during the night. But... More

We spent four days here and opted to the International Club floor--great indulgence but worth every penny for the service-view and general ambiance. The hotel is easy walking distance to the harbor and the opera house. Be sure to go to the street market.

Beautifully appointed room with quality furnishing and a beautiful bathroom. Accomodation was first rate and the outlook was excellent. Well situated for the Opera House which was the reason for our visit, a quick walk maybe 10 minutes. A beautifully integrated historic building and a new addition. What a beautiful foyer and coffee space. Top end cost, although for a... More

This is a really nice hotel with an excellent location close to Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera house. Perfect for seeing major sites and the CBD. The price of food and drink is expensive but probably to be expected for the location.

Great location, lovely room, excellent service. We booked a last minute stay and got an excellent price for our room. Plenty of restaurant options nearby. The downstairs lounge, Cortile is a lovely place to relax with drinks or perfect for breakfast.

My wife and I had an overnight stay at the Sydney Intercontinental for a function held there. Our experience from start to finish was excellent. She is a Platinum loyalty program member which entitled us to a room upgrade. They gave us the second largest room in the property, The State Room. It is huge. It has a large living... More

Spending extra to a club room was well worth it. The staff in the Club Lounge were superb and the views are amazing. We will be back to stay again, a memorable few days in Sydney. The Club can be busy, however the staff make each customer feel special and very welcomed.

Our first visit to Inter Continental and we were not disappointed. Just a one night stay but the room was large and very comfortable. Quieter than many other CBD hotels. Fantastic position just a minute walk to Circular Quay. Great if you're going to the Opera House.

I just stayed at the intercontinental for 5 days and it really felt like home. The room was not luxurious by any means but the view was spectacular (harbour view) and everything was extremely comfortable and clean. I chose this hotel because it has (imo) the best gym in the area, lots of good equipment. The pool is a bit... More

You hear a lot about "free" nights with offers but in this case there was no argument, no hidden black out days. We were able to have a great weekend using one free night. Another feature (again) was the Club lounge. What a haven of relaxation; staff extremely attentive and it does offer great value. You could easily charge people... More
