The room was what you would expect from an Intercontential very clean, modern and full of the extra's you expect. Due to our tour schedule we didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment...

Thankyou for a lovely experience - we found from the valet to the reception staff, everyone was delightful. Being a IHG member, this was our 2nd time staying here (for Coldplay concert) and loved it despite how busy they were. We had a beautiful view of the Harbour bridge and the Opera House adding that special touch to our trip....

The rooms were on the small side and the hotel food was average to quite good at times.I found the restrictions on guests rather rude and whilst the reception staff were polite and helpful they did not exceed theirs roles in any way, we were also persuaded to join the member ship which...

I stayed for two nights in a club eastern harbour view room then returned for four nights in a deluxe eastern harbour view room. I loved having breakfast and evening drinks and canapés in the club on level 32 with its unbelievable views of the Opera House, Harbour and Bridge. I could have sat there forever. So beautiful from morning...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
