We just returned from a weeks stay at the InterContinental Sydney. It was a fabulous hotel. The location just can't be beat. It's a short 2 block walk to the Circular Quay, where you can catch a ferry to just about anywhere you want to go. Just a short stroll further and you are standing in front of the Opera House.
We had a wonderful room on the 28th floor which looked out over the Royal Botanic Gardens. The room was spotlessly clean and very nicely appointed. I am very picky about beds, and this one was wonderful. I usually have trouble sleeping well in hotels, but not here. I slept like a baby.
I would definitely recommend spending the extra money and staying in a club level room. The view from the club on the 32nd floor is amazing, looking out onto the harbor and the opera house. The breakfast every morning is delicious and a great way to start off the morning before a day of exploring the city. We spent several mornings just sitting out on the deck enjoying our coffees and the views before setting out on the days journey. The afternoon drinks and canapes were a great way to wind down after a the day.
We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The concierge was very helpful in arranging tours for us, and helping us find various things we required during our stay.
