4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

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 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.

Am currently staying on business. Staff upon arrival were very friendly and professional. Was given an upgrade to a quiet corner room on a high floor as requested. Hotel is ideally located for travellers to Sydney. Really lovely hotel but rooms are a little dated. I also found several hairs in the bathroom which is something that I have never... More

We stayed at the intercontinental in Sydney to mark my wife's 40th birthday. As it was a special weekend, this review needs to be read in that context, as it's the little things which let the hotel down. We had originally booked an Opera House view room via a travel agent but decided to upgrade on arrival to the club... More

The InterContinental is located in a prime position only a couple minutes away from the wharfs and harbour. It has spectacular views of the bridge and the opera house at night. The rooms are a little small, considering the price to stay there overnight. The main area on the ground floor has a good atmosphere to it. It's good but... More

During the booking process on line the incorrect room was booked due to misleading pictures on the site. It did not become evident until book in time. A suite was thought to be booked however only a harbour view room was available. The cost of the rooms were the same which if it was evident the room would never had... More
