I stayed here for one night (sadly). When I walked into the foyer, I thought I had gone into a different world. Fabulous architecture; the concierge kindly offered to carry my bag down a few steps; and the staff at Reception were fantastic: natural, unaffected, genuine. They were just what I needed at that time.
I was given a room on the 22nd floor. Great views, albeit that I could see the bridge and part of Circular Quay only by looking sideways through the window. The room and the bathroom were big; everything was clean, fresh and in its place.
The Room Service staff had been injected with the same customer service juice as Reception. 5 stars. Checkout was a very pleasant experience, and I was disappointed that it may be a little while before I can enter their foyer again.
I would have to say, given my experience with other national and international hotels, that the Intercontinental Sydney would be hard to shift off the top of my hotels list.
