We stayed at the intercontinental on Christmas Eve, Really good stay, room was an excellent size and the welcome gift was a nice touch. All the staff we came in contact with were attentive and keen
to assist. Additionally, If your travelling by car into Sydney the hotel could not be easier to get to our depart from. A real plus if you dont want to fight traffic in Sydney. We also did the buffet breakfast, and it was really good with excellent variety,
Only downside, the pool area is certainly lacking. Its small, shallow and the room that it is housed in is far from welcoming. Certainly fine for young kids to go up and have a splash in, but not somewhere that is conducive for spending much time. Additionally the mens changing room and sauna is outside the pool area so you end up walking in the hallway wet from pool to get changed. Certainly not up to the standard of other similar properties in Sydney or other intercontinental hotels. Not a deal breaker by any means however worth keeping in mind if you you like use the sauna or pool.
Overall however the location , room and staff more than make up for the pool. [Less]
