Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 705 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location and view from bedroom Excellent location, easy walk to Botanical Gardens, quay and the Rocks and a great view from the comfortable, east-facing bedroom. Everything was spotless and good condition and the staff were pleasant. But otherwise, a rather conventional, not very modern hotel. I was surprised at the lack of separate spa and the sauna was hidden away in the changing rooms, which was probably convenient for privacy but for the pool/spa, and was not very hot. My room was not serviced until I requested it, about 3pm, which was astonishing. Staff gave no explanation though offered to send someone up to do it. I did not have a Do NOt Disturb sign on the door, either. I didn't think it a very solo traveller-friendly hotel either - seemed to be full of large, noisy families, with young children running around, especially at the pool. Not a very classy or relaxing experience overall, considering the price, but the location made up for it. 28 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous place with equally fabulous view from our room Couldn't ask for better attention and service from all the staff. Club Lounge fantastic and we were so well looked after up there. Nothing is too much trouble for staff. We will be back. 24 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another great Intercontinental experience This was my second visit. It was great to just stroll up Macquarie St after the opera. A night cap in The Cortile and then back to the room with a great view of theHarobur Bridge lit up for the night. Room service breakfast was a treat before heading back to the real world. The staff are great and the service attentive but not overwhelming. Look forward to my next visit. 24 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Perfect We had a wonderful stay at the Intercontinental for our wedding anniversary. The staff were absolutely faultless and the service top class. We stayed in a deluxe club room with a late check out. The club room was a real treat with beautiful views of Sydney Harbour on the 32nd floor with drinks & canapés in a very relaxing atmosphere. We cant wait to return next year for our next anniversary. Thank You ! 24 September 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harbour View Suite Sydney I had booked this weekend in Sydney with my family to celebrate my wife's birthday. Having stayed at the Intercontinental on a number of occasions it seemed like the best bet. I'll start with the disappointments, which was that our upgrade was not available. The suite we had reserved was good, although the sofa was clearly in need of replacing. And lastly, despite a couple of prior conversations, our account was in a bit of a mess when we left (which the staff efficiently and cordially amended). The good bits. Incredible panoramic view across the breadth of Sydney harbour. The breakfast at the Opera Cafe was excellent. And my wife particularly enjoyed the aperitif in the Cortile Bar. Lastly, the people at the Intercontinental are unfailingly professional, which keeps me coming back to the brand. Thanks! 22 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful view From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were extremely well looked after. The front desk were so pleasant and helpful. Room great and Eastern Harbour View amazing. Atmosphere of the hotel beautiful. Would highly recommend this hotel. 22 September 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place, and will stay again - but my credit card deposit hasn't cleared yet Room service was excellent, room was good - but what really grinds my gears is it has been a week and my credit card deposit still hasn't cleared(!!) I called the intercontinental front desk, and was advised it could take up to a week for the money to be returned. The room service was excellent, as was the hot chocolate in the cafe area. 21 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only place to stay in Sydney Sydney is my town. And to choose to stay in a hotel in your own town means that your choice should be a good one to make your stay memorable. It was a special night and as always, I chose to stay in the Intercontinental. I was brought up in Sydney and two things are important...our harbour and our history. The Intercontinental combines both those things, not only with the magnificent views and closeness to the shore, but also the melding of an historical Sydney Treasury Building with the modern hotel. The rooms and public areas are wonderful, the staff polite, proacive and well informed, and a breakfast to die for. If you are from this country or from overseas, look no further than the Intercontinental. Big enough to be bold and exciting; small enough to care for you. I'll be back again and again. (Interestingly enough, this hotel was also the choice of One Direction and Angelina Jolie and family, but not sure if I should let THAT secret out!) 14 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding hotel in every sense This is one of Sydney's finest hotels - with brilliant views of the harbour, bridge and Opera House. Staff were outstanding. Can't fault anything .... the most comfortable bed ever! And we were still treated like royalty, even after Angelina and the kids arrived. 13 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Memorable for Us 25 th Wedding Anniversary - great service, friendly staff, superb food plus comfortable bed. Thank you ! 12 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Room Room was Great, view was excellent of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Service was terrific,my wife and I had a great time time their. The Gym Fantastic 24 hrs 7 days a week access,Fanastic 09 September 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IHG Rewards Club policy 28 consecutive stays only accumulate 2K pts Dissatisfied. Will not recommend to others. IHG Rewards Club policy only recognized 2,000 points max despite how many nights you stayed at the hotel. I stayed for 26 days and only allowed to earn 2,000 pts toward my status with IHG. It takes 15,000 pts for 1 night free at Intercontinental hotel. 09 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breathtaking View! When you open your room door and it feels like the Sydney Harbour Bridge is so close you could touch it, it is very thrilling! Had Room Service Breakfast so we could enjoy the view for longer. Was a very special two night stay! And the location to The Rocks area and Circular Quay is fantastic. Leave the car behind and just walk and enjoy! 09 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service,most enjoyable experience. From our first contact with concierge then check-in the whole experience was amazing. I would like to thank all the staff for their outstanding and professional service, in particular Ashley, Erin, Alicia and Tamjay from the Cortile who gave us excellent service as we dined there quite a lot during our stay as we found the food great and it was so relaxing dining there. I certainly hope I can return to the Intercontinental in the future. 07 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top Hotel to stay at The service , room and staff made our visit to this hotel memorable, its well placed, close to the Opera House and Ferry terminal. 04 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well done I had a wonderful 3 night stay here and received excellent customer service. The location is perfect, I think the very best for downtown Sydney. The blend of old and new architecture and features is unique and special. When I return to Sydney I will definitely stay here again. 01 September 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weekend in Sydney This hotel was excellently located - short walk to the wharves, rocks and bridge. Everything was at our finger tips. Made the stay memorable and comfortable - the staff was very helpful and made great suggestions what sights to see. 28 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always a plesant experience I've stayed at the intercontinental in Sydney over 20 times in the past 6 months and I have never had a bad experience. A good night sleep every time! 28 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff We continue to be impressed with the professional, knowledgeable staff at the Sydney Intercontinental. They are prompt, polite and always will to "go that extra mile". You must be rightly proud of you team in Sydney 27 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our Stay A little problem on arrival as the hotel had "lost" our reservation, 2 days instead of 3 days ! But they cleared everything and we had a very nice upgrade. 27 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Great stay Great view Great staff Great weather THANKS! 26 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rewards Night As a Ambassor member I was dissappointed with the lack of benefits that I received on my stay. I understand that as this was a rewards night I was not entitled to a upgrade or movie. I did not have mineral water, a fruit bowl or gift in the room which I am sure should have been offered to me. These are the little things that make a difference. 25 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A wonderful experience Great location, clean and tidy room and a great view from the 24th floor! The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. Thank you for making our 10th wedding anniversary a memorable one. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others. 24 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mixed experience The negatives - 1) Had two rooms booked for the family ( pre-booked weeks in advance ) but two rooms allocated were not interconnecting ( as requested ) or even together . 2) One room good with harbour view - the second room smelt awful but was immediately changed ( still left a bad memory ) . 3) Old bathrooms badly needing renovation - no separate shower . 4) What's with the door key cards ? We had to change three times in 24 hours and we saw other clients with the same issue . System needs changing . Positives - 1) friendly youthful service 2) very comfortable beds and pillows 3) location excellent for Harbour and business district 21 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stay Property is modern and well located near circular quay precinct. Only issue was no recognition as a Platinum IHG rewards member. We also had a small issue with the bathroom water overflowing when the bath was emptied due to the drain being partially blocked. Apart from this the room and service was of a high standard. Next time I would probably try a club lounge room, I would stay here again. 21 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rooms, lovely staff We have stayed at Sydney Intercontinental several times now. Each & every time the hotel is immaculate, service is so friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean with a very comfy bed and great views. The food at the hotel is wonderful and top class. Very enjoyable stay. 21 August 2013
