This is a great place to stay. For that bit of luxury treat yourself to club level and enjoy the benefits of the club lounge with the fantastic service they offer.Amazing views over the Harbor Bridge whilst enjoying a great breakfast selection or enjoy the twilight cocktails and canapes while the sun sets....bliss.
Not enough?How about a swim in the pool with an amazing view too and comfy loungers.
Can't stretch to Club level?Just as enjoyable because it has a great interior and is in a great location for getting around,transport etc.
Only downfall.They debit your immediately account on arrival ...not departure.Don't be caught out!

Room Tip: Go Club level if you can.Book in advance for a better deal.

The Intercontinental Sydney does not present or market itself as anything but a 5 star establishment. In just about all areas - it does tick the boxes. The team at Cafe Opera (headed by Jill) have perfected their service and attention to detail for many years. Most importantly, they remember their regulars. The location is second to none being a short walk to the Opera House and the picturesque Circular Quay. Free Sydney CBD shuttle buses run at regular intervals almost right outside the door. Check-in is always smooth and efficient while check-out and accounts are accurate and and quick. However, in recent years, regulars like myself have noticed a very steep rise in parking fees. This does tend to discourage patrons from coming in for one of their famous seafood buffets or merely to have a drink with friends. Overall, still worth it !

Room Tip: If you can afford it, try the Executive Lounge & level of accommodation. The views of Sydney and the harbour are absolutely spectacular.

I just love this hotel. Everything is so easy. It's worth every cent. Great location, lovely service and the mini bar has some really interesting options rather than the same old, same old. Great position.

Stayed there for four weeks in April on a business trip and found it to be a great base. Very efficient service - from laundry to concierge, everyone was helpful. Very nice bar to finish the evening off. Great location next to the harbour. Full of tourists and you can see why.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, go for the Club or Executive rooms on the top floors. This gives you access to their lounge at the top - fantastic breakfast and superlative views!

We stayed one night, in a room overlooking Macquarie Street and over to North Head. It was great! Service was fantastic! We dropped the kettle power base into the bath and when we rang to let them know they brought us another one. Very convenient to Circular Quay, Botanic Gardens, The Rocks, etc.
