Only disappointment was the cafe/bar the staff were very quick to take our order not even giving us time to look at the menu then once our wine arrived they disappeared not even asking if we would like another drink when they...

We went for a High Tea yesterday. The food was great but the time slots are way too short. By the time everyone arrives and catches up you have to quickly eat and leave. It's all over in a blink of an eye. You are reminded by the wait staff of how long you have and they are pushy to... More

Great room and hotel. Only drawback is I didn't have a view of the harbor/bridge. But, oh well. The room was very comfortable -- and I was there on business so I didn't spend much time there anyways. Would definitely stay here again

Purpose of the visit was to see a performance at the Sydney Opera House so I chose a hotel in the near vicinity. The Intercontinental was excellent! From making the booking to checking... More
