Two days before returning to the UK after a 2 month trip, we treated ourselves to 2 nights at the InterContinental Sydney in MacQuarie St. Reception, check-in, luggage to room all went like clockwork and our 18th floor room, booked via Expedia, was very luxe and had a good view of the Botanic Gardens and some of downtown Sydney skyline. If you don't get a harbour view room, the views of Sydney Harbour are outstanding from the roof-top pool room. Though the pool is small it is usually empty.
Breakfast in the Opera Cafe was very good (but cost £££'s) so on the second morning we had an equally good breakfast across the road at the Museum of Sydney cafe. It's just minutes to Circular Quay and the Opera House from this hotel and friendly concierge was full of information about what was on. Also met some friends for drinks in the Cortile Bar, it is beautiful and we ended up staying far longer than we intended.. service / drinks / nibbles all excellent.
