"We love this hotel!"
We have stayed here 3 times now and it's great. A perfect location for a short staycation. Great chance to be a tourist in our own city. Our room had a nice view of the harbour and was quite spacious. Very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and amazing amenities. Plenty to do in the hotel no need to leave!
Lovely view from the higher floors- both sydney bridge and the opera house. Nice big rooms although a little dull., but modern. Great location, a good breakfast and good service. Overall a great location both for business or a holiday.
Well situated with a 5 minute walk to Circular Quay. Lovely room, comfortable bed. Staff professional, friendly and helpful. Would recommend getting a club room as the club lounge on the 31st floor has wonderful views of the harbour and offers an excellent buffet breakfast plus cocktails and canapés in the evening from 5pm to 7pm. Concierge very helpful. Check in was smooth. We would certainly return.
"Close to Circular Quay"
The Intercontinental Hotel is modern and spacious as well as being secure. It is a short downhill walk to Circular Quay where public transport is easily accessible. You can find dining 24/7 at the Quay. The hotel is a short walk from The Opera House and Botanical Gardens. The beds were comfortable and I loved the down pillows.
"Legitimately a 5-star hotel but..."
...cost cutting measures were evident; i.e., free bottled water was unavailable and basic toiletry items were only available upon request. That being said, I made the request which was fulfilled within minutes. The furnishings and bed lines were top quality, as expected. I couldn't quite manage to get my laptop wi-fi connected but a call to the front desk soon armed me with the simple step that I had missed. This impressed me because the information was supplied directly by the front desk responder -- no "please hold for assistance." I liked that! The room service menu was adequately varied and the food consistently arrived sooner than the time quoted. My overall experience was positive. The location is great!
