"Very good, worth a visit"
Did what it said on the tin and really worth the money to start off our holiday with a bang. We paid for a Harbour Bridge & Opera House view room and it certainly didn't disappoint. Comfy bed, nifty features...the remote blinds, controllable from the bed were a favourite...and friendly staff. Complimentary breakfast included a good selection and seemed fresh and well prepared. Good location, only a short walk from the hub of Circular Quay and some good local restaurants. Only negatives were the TV was fiddly to use, not that we used it that much, and the security deposit took almost 2 weeks to be refunded to us after we checked out.
"Oh my goodness"
Stayed here for 6 nights on our last leg in Australia. Wow!!! The hotel is truly iconic. The original Treasury, the building is magnificent mixing old with modern perfectly. Wander around the ground floor and see the original brickwork and bars at the old arched windows. Well placed, just a few minutes from Circular Quays, the Opera House, and The Rocks. Superb views of the bridge, opera house, cruise terminal and Sydney Head. A busy harbour so lots to watch. We had upgraded to a club room which offers a high level room with a view. Large room with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. We had access to the club lounge on level 32. The lounge is available from 6.30am until 9pm. Has indoor and outdoor seating areas with the best views ever of all that Sydney has to offer. Breakfast plus refreshments are available all day with cocktails and canapés 5 til 7pm all complimentary. A huge variety of food that could amount to a meal if you're not wanting to venture out. The staff in the lounge are fantastic and always willing to chat and ask about your day. A very special thank you to Isabelle, Danni, Charlotte and Fabian who really took care of us. We loved our stay at the Intercon and will definitely return!!!
"A wasted experience"
Booked and paid for a Harbour Bridge view Room. The view was the reason we chose this property. Unfortunately, our booking was revised by the hotel because there were no Harbour Bridge Rooms left and we were given a "city" view (i.e. side of a building) and 10% off (despite the Bridge room being greater than 10% more expensive). Hotel blamed a booking system error. We could have chosen any hotel in the city but we paid a steep premium to enjoy the iconic view. Rooms need a refresh. Tired, bare and very brown. Rubbish on the floor of the room when we checked in. Was it not vacuumed or visually inspected prior to our arrival' Some staff are incredible. Others are very rude. Good location but much better hotels at that price point in Sydney.
Always the expected luxury when we stay at an Intercontinental, this one has a superstar view. The lounge balcony view is amazing. We had breakfast everyday in the lounge to take it in. At night the lounge turns business casual for drinks and dinner. Our suite was grand. I enjoyed the view more than watching tv. Room service was delicious.
"Returning to a Quality Hotel"
We try to run away to Sydney for a weekend at lest twice a year. This hotel is extremely busy this time of year. We checked in on the Friday and stayed till late check out on the Sunday. Again as always we were greeted with very friendly staff and again nothing is too much trouble. As I said at this time of year the hotel is full and there are a lot of Christmas parties but you would not know it form the amount of attention you receive from the staff. Everybody is always ready to help and the service is first rate but the big difference is they do it with a smile. As usual we are very glad to arrive and sorry to leave.
