Booked Room with Bridge view for Daughters 10th birthday, visiting from Brisbane. Service so friendly and had birthday cake for daughter when we arrived late at night. Fantastic views, great service and clean rooms. Certainly made us feel welcome and best breakfasts ever. Daughter was over the moon. Thanks.

I went with my mother on vacation to Sydney. We were aiming for a city holiday, mostly, as it was winter. This is an Intercontinental, so the hotel was lovely and what we expected. The concierge was super friendly, which is a plus. We had the harbour view room, and it looked over the nearby Botanical Gardens. It was so... More

We stayed on the 13th floor on the eastern harbour side, giving us fabulous sunrise views. Our room was nicely appointed - the bath could definitely use double sinks but the bed was comfortable. Room service coffee (at 4 am on our first day) and ice delivery were exceptionally prompt. The Club Lounge was very good but breakfast and happy... More

it was well worth paying the money to get a studio with a harbour view. We got a huge discount because we joined the IHG rewards club. It's free to join and we got a big discount plus free Wi-Fi. We got a bedroom, plus a lounge, plus a bathroom, plus a separate ensuite, plus an entrance hall, it was... More

Stayed at this hotel for work for 2 nights during August. Even the basic room is amazing! I am scared of heights, my room was on the 16th floor and loved it. I had a corner room with big windows and felt very safe. The gym and pool are on the 31st floor and are great facilities. The service was... More

Beautiful hotel located in centre of Sydney near domain gardens. Rooms are well equipped with lovely views of city. Front desk service is friendly and very attentive. My room was ready despite arriving at 8am. Highly recommend the high coffee - coffee take on the afternoon tea concept. Can't go past a espresso martini! Would recommend staying in this hotel...

Stayed for Business in Sept, awesome location, walking distance to many locations. The room was very well appointed, clean and the view was superb. I will definitely stay at the Intercontinental when next in Sydney, and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others.

I have stayed in the Intercontinental for more than 12 years and have found it to be consistently excellent. It isn't only the superb location and the well-converted heritage building which retains a feeling of what old Sydney must have been like when much of it was sandstone buildings like this one (the old Treasury). It's as much about the... More

Recently enjoyed one of our fairly regular two night stays at InterCon Sydney. This hotel never fails to impress but these days seems to get better each stay. Checkin at Club Lounge was seamless, none of this handing over a credit card etc- it's all there on record. Our room was ready even though we were quite early, Ambassador upgrade... More

We stayed here during our first trip to Sydney on the recommendation of a friend who lived in Sydney for several years and we were not disappointed. I must say that Julian (the concierge) was absolutely exceptional - he was always friendly and willing to help us with all of our dinner recommendations/reservations, directions, and just general suggestions in the...
