Hi all, I would just like to let everyone know that the CLUB Intercontinental is by far the best place in Sydney. From the moment we check in the service at the club lounge was amazing. They remember you and your preferences. I am a loyal Fairmont Gold guest but the Club Intercon is very comparable . The views are...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 April 2017 via mobile

I booked an overnight stay in Intercontinental Sydney because I was told by many that it is a wonderful place to stay at when in town. They were right.... Intercon has always been known for class and remarkable service. Located near the Sydney Opera House and the shopping areas of Sydney, I was able to go around to the places...

I'll start with the positives and say that this hotel does have a great location and that the view from the top floor restaurant is lovely. However, that view only comes with paying for a drink in the evening (when it's open to the public) or otherwise upgrading your hotel stay. Now onto why this hotel is only getting a...

Stayed here for a work conference recently and was expecting big things.. it didn't disappoint, except for the mattress on the bed and no free wifi. The architecture of the building was beautiful and it was tastefully decorated throughout. From the moment you arrive the staff treat you like royalty even if you arrive slightly disheveled, tired and in need...

We went to Sydney to see the Opera Carmen for our 50th. Wedding Anniversary. We stayed at the InterContinental Hotel in Macquarie St which was close to everything we needed. The staff were so helpful and the room great. We would certainly go back to this hotel on future trips to Sydney. Also re Wifi, we were able to get...

Stayed with friend for 2 days while attending a 60th birthday. We strayed in room 3007 Harbour views on the Club Floor. Room was excellent, great selection of pillows to help you sleep. Mini bar as normal in 5 stars was on the expensive side. Our room rate included access to the Club Lounge on the 32 floor, presentation ,...

I spent a night at the InterContinental Sydney recently. It was a great hotel notwithstanding that it's not as new as the other hotels in Sydney (e.g. Hilton or Westin). It's also further away from Pitt St Mall/QVB but a stone's throw from Circular Quay and about 15 minutes by foot to the Rocks. The hotel is subtle in character....

This hotel had a very quaint looking foyer and entrance, but this is all that was good about the hotel-the frontage. The room we were given was old and musty. I immediately started sneezing with the dust. The bathroom was so cramped and small and definitely not in keeping with this class of hotel. The single bowl sink had a...

It is always a pleasure to stay at the Intercontinental with the hugely helpful friendly staff and fantastic location. And to literally top that is the view from the club lounge on the 31st floor. Step outside with a complimentary drink and take in the Sydney harbor view. Relax with evening nibbles as the sun goes down. For a very...

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.
