I have stayed here a few times, but decided to write a short review on this hotel. First, it is in a great location, just a block from Circular Key (the ferries and train station), Sydney Opera House, Botanical Gardens and the Rocks.
The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well laid out. (We enjoyed our view of the Botanical gardens.) We only ate in the hotel once and did the dinner seafood buffet. Make sure you let them know you are a guest in the hotel, as you get a discount (at the time we went, it was $15 off). The food was good, but not as great as we were expecting. It would have been nice to have some more hot dishes, but it still was a good buffet and a decent price.
The gym was better than normal by most hotel standards, but we've seen better at other InterContinentals we have stayed at in SE Asia. We've actually remained pretty active outside, so we haven't used the gym too much.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good combination of location, quality, good service and reliability of a major chain. InterCon never disappoints.
Thanks to the entire staff for a great stay!!
