InterContinental Sydney Double Bay
Take a seat by the window and enjoy breakfast in Stillery Bar & Dining. The world is waking up, with ferry-bound workers heading to their 12-minute water commute to the city, and locals already ticking off errands. You can take a more relaxed approach to the day and when you’re ready, take a stroll along Cross Street. Whether you’re looking for a piece of world-class art, a great new book, or just want to window-shop, you’ll immediately feel welcome. Don’t forget to grab a coffee from one of the many cafes – you really can’t go wrong.
Head to Transvaal Avenue for lunch at one of the restaurants that line this pretty boulevard. Priding itself on providing a luxury shopping experience, away from the bustle of shopping centre malls, even the storefronts have window boxes filled with colourful flowers. Once you’ve ticked the shopping box, wander down to the Marina and Seven Shillings Beach, or head home to unwind at the Rooftop. Trust us – the view alone is worth it.
Kick off the last part of your day with one of our signature gin cocktails at the bar, followed by dinner with us or at one of the many local eateries our concierge can recommend. A nightcap on your private balcony will round off an unforgettable day in Sydney and give you time to ponder – what will tomorrow bring?
Double Bay is named for the sandy shoreline interrupted by a miniature point. It refers to the two geographical formations between Point Piper and Darling Point, which are interrupted by a miniature point in between. The eastern part is also known as Blackburn Cove. The locality was originally called Keltie Cove after the master of HMS Sirius. The present name came into use around 1821 when Governor. Lachlan Macquarie earmarked the bay as a site for a future Botanical Gardens. The gardens were planned and marked out before Macquarie left Sydney, but his successor, Major-General Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane, never finished the project. In the early years of the colony, Double Bay was used as shelter for fishermen who would regularly fish around the harbour.

The interior design for the classic rooms references the design of the public areas to ensure continuity of design and detail. Lighter more contemporary furniture is set against framed elements making reference to the symmetry of the architecture. The design evokes a casual elegance and sophistication that is reflected across all interior spaces within the hotel. Architects: Bates Smart, Surry Hills.
