What a beautiful hotel. Very classy and the hotel staff went out of their way to make sure my visit was wonderful. The location is perfect and is close to the ferry which takes you to popular areas around Sydney’s harbor or quay. It is also very close to a variety of restaurants, the bridge, and even the Sydney Opera House and souvenir shops. They provide free of charge delicious coffee, tea, slippers, and bathrobes as well as a selection of different pillows. I can’t say enough about this wonderful hotel, except stay there. It was the perfect place to start and finish my vacation- a home away from home.

Ultimate Relief!

Pros: Customer Service and breakfast buffet
Cons: Fan noise in room and concierge knowing airline numbers and telling you that 800 numbers are Not free calls thru the hotel phone.
Location: Very close proximity to all. No taxi needed except at night.
We had just come off of a HORRIBLE Princes Cruise and were really in need of some TLC. Intercontinental was great! However, paying the highest amount I have EVER paid for a normal Martini and Bloody Mary with generic Vodka was a shock! The hotel was very expensive and I have stayed at the best of them. However, I still say it was wonderful service and a lovely room and the Breakfast Buffet was magnificent!
