Service was good, location excellent, the hotel itself very nice... but the dinnig situation is terrible! only one rest.-cafe /buffet style facility- for all meals- then a small cafe in the lobby level- food was always cold- it takes about 40-50 min. to get your food and 2-3 times order was incorrect. the waiter explained that the problem is the hotel only has 1 kitchen and their focus is the Buffet. so either pay $80 for a decent meal at the buffet or go somewhere else. Not very convenient for a 5 star hotel.

Its always nice to get an upgrade to a higher floor or somewhere with a view, so it was really appreicated. The hotel is in a really good location, and the breakfast buffett was exceptional. The room was a little tired but considering the location and size and comfort the price was very good. Would stay here again.

Absolutely loved it. This was the first time staying at an InterContintental Hotel and boy was I impressed! Excellent location, close to the Sydney Opera House. Breakfast was delicious everyday. Staff professional and always efficiently present to assist. The room was spacious, bed super comfortable. The decor, the palette of greens/browns used throughout the hotel was beautiful. The layout of the furniture provided sufficient privacy to have conversation with groups of four or with one. I would love to go back and stay at this hotel. Staying at this hotel prompted me to stay at other InterContinental hotels during 2020.

WOW! What a great hotel and location. Booked a club room with access to the lounge. Have to stay it was one of the best lounges in the world. Great views, selections of food would match any 5 star restaurant. From afternoon tea to evening canopies. Best of all was the view at sunset......will be back and stay longer next time

The hotel breakfast and location are very good. In my opinion Intercontinental Sydney has one of the best lounges in the world. Good service at the front desk and the lounge. The hotel is a bit outdated and the room is a bit small
