Have been to the InterContinental in Sydney numerous time and the hotel has become extremely lacking to be branded as an InterContinental. Perhaps Crowne Plaza on a good day. Issues on my most recent stay: 1. Alarm clock goes off at 7AM. I had unplugged the alarm clock that didn't prevent it going off at early hour several times. Triesld...

Stayed in the this hotel for the weekend. The check in process was very slow and surprisingly, people were jumping the queue. But once they heard us talking about it, we were served efficiently. We got the room 3 hours ahead of the normal check-in time. Thank you for that. Our room had amazing view of the Opera house and...

We stayed in a 15th floor room for 4 nights for our 20th wedding anniversary. Our room gave us a great view over the harbour and the International Hotel is in a great location for Opera and touring the harbour sights. Breakfast also offers a great variety and is good value. Mind you this all comes at a steep price....

Firstly, let me say that the hotel is extremely nice with good views, nice staff, lovely rooms etc etc The experience was somewhat marred by the check-in. I was one of a party of seven that had all been booked by one person. Two of the party were arriving one day later than the others. Upon arriving at check-in I...

Stayed only a couple of days for business. A few things I was surprised but not in a very good way. I didn't see any complimentary bottled water which was something new to me as a 5-star hotel with its room rates, only bottled water which has to be charged in the guest room. On the last night before I...

Spent a weekend here to catch Aladdin playing at the Capitol. Whilst the harbour view rooms retain their spectacular view, the decor was alas a little tired. The scheme was very 'beige' and the furniture and fixtures a little worn. The lobby bar as always provides a great menu and ambient place for a pre or post show nibble. Room...

Really tired hotel. Desperately needs a refit. Room was constantly damp. Ordered room service three times, every time was kept on hold for ages. One time just gave up. A lot of business hotels in Sydney need an update, this is no exception.

Location is amazing and if you spend the extra for executive lounge- the view of the Sydney Bridge and harbor is unreal. The rooms are old and tired- the beds are on wheels and the doubles are indeed very small as is the bathroom which is very dated. Had a great meal in the restaurant even sitting at the bar...

Great place, super attention The Only problem was the music and the DJ, we asked for them to turn down the music and he didn't care, they don't care about the customers requests. If you want a great drinks, great view and attention, just ask when the DJ is not working or an other one much nicer.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
