InterContinental Sydney

Introduction: Some visit Sydney’s icons. Others stay in them. For more than 25 years, InterContinental Sydney has been the luxury hotel of choice to meet, do business and unlock authentic experiences that make Australia’s harbour city one of the best places in the world to live, work and visit. From its exceptional service and world-class facilities to luxury accommodation and rooftop Club InterContinental lounge overlooking the harbour, it offers everything you need to make your time in the city count.

Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

My Arrival experience: Quick check-in. No escort to the room.

What I loved: The location, breakfast and views. The service and facilities are up to InterContinental’s standards.

What about the food: One of the best breakfast buffets I have seen in any luxury hotel. It’s crowded, but the items in the buffet are of highest quality including organic Australian yogurt.

What about the service: Top professional service from staff. They also have time to talk and provide great service despite being a busy hotel. Well done.

What about the rooms: The renovated contemporary rooms are comfortable and lovely. Soft beds and beautiful rooms are the highlights. Only downside is the shower located within the bathtub. I would prefer a stand-alone shower if there isn’t enough space for both bathtub and a separate shower.

Number of rooms: 509.


Type of property: City hotel.

Location: Sydney, Australia.

Facilities: Fitness Center, Pool and business/meeting facilities.

Complimentary internet: Yes and very fast.

My overall impression: Great.
