While the Room was on the small side, it was immaculate and the service was friendly and helpful . The location is in walking distance of everything you would need and the view from the club room was unbelievable.

Not recommended at all

I don’t recommend this hotel at all. Unfortunately, we had a very unpleasant stay. First of all, we were told in an unpleasant manner to wait until 3 pm, if we don’t want to pay the extra charge for early check-in without them even checking the availability. Also, when my husband went to the club lounge, he was told that out room number is not registered for lounge access and that our amenity is only for breakfast, and were made to leave. Later on, he went back to the lounge with the list of all Virtuoso amenities that was provided to us at the time of check-in, the staff finally let him in. Lastly, we asked the travel agent to arrange a microwave in the room. However, even though we had proof that it was requested by our agent, the staff said that “we did not receive the request”. Actually, the front desk staff is more polite and friendly compared to the staff at the lounge.

The Intercontinental Sydney was formerly a Government building, with lots of character. We enjoyed a harbor view room, looking out on the Sydney Opera House,the ferry docks and the bridge.WOW! It was a costly stay but OK in the context of a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Great location

By: Sue

Reviewed on: 26 Nov 2017

The hotel is starting to show signs of needing major refurbishment, however as you get club access with an eastern harbour room, this location is quite possibly the most superb in Sydney for it's club lounge outlook over the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Club lounge offerings have improved since my last stay here. Close to Circular Quay and the Rocks.

One of my favorite hotels anywhere. Perfectly located one block from Sydney Harbor, the rooms were large with a beautiful view. The roof top restaurant/bar was one of our favorite places to be every morning and early evening. I used the salon for a nail appointment and my son used the work out facilities and had a deep tissue massage. The staff is superior in every aspect of the hotel. The concierge recommended two amazing restaurants within walking distance. I could spend a vacation never leaving this hotel!

Really enjoyed our stay at this property. The room was very nice, great location, very friendly service and enjoyed access to the club floor. My only disappointment was how crowded the Club Lounge was.
