"Wonderful building "
Set in downtown Sydney, this hotel is in one of Sidney's historic buildings, giving it a sense of timelessness and grace. Efficient and friendly staff, well equipped and comfortable rooms and good eating options, this is a great hotel for business or leisure. Within easy walking distance of Sydney Opera House and the bridge, I recommend this hotel
"Great start to cruise"
I booked a Harbour Bridge View room for one night to ensure a relaxing start to our NZ cruise. It was a really great start! We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but we were able to refresh and change in the recreation room on the top floor and leave our luggage until check in. We received a call once our room was ready, which was still earlier than the normal check in time. The view from our room was magic, especially as we watched our ship dock early in the morning. Buffet breakfast was superb with everything you want! Friendly and helpful staff even at the busiest of times. A great place to stay!
"Fantastic High Tea in the Cortile"
Lovely Sunday afternoon High Tea in the Cortile. Served buffet style, the range and quality of the eats are great. Highlighted by the magnificent space which is the Cortile. This is not an occasion to be rushed. Rather one should sink into the lounge chair and enjoy the food and the atmosphere which is complimented by a solo vocalist in the background. Highly recommended.
"Great hotel and great location "
Exceptional service and perfect location - right next to the ferry and trains at circular que - can’t beat it. We didn’t need to get an uber or taxi pretty much at all during our stay (unless we wanted to for convenience). Everything was within walking distance or we could train or ferry to it quickly so if you factor this into the price, it’s definitely worth it. Only downside was breakfast wasn’t included with the stay. Typically when I️ travel abroad it’s included so I️ was slightly surprised by this when I️ arrived but there are plenty of cafes nearby that you can go to for a bite if you don’t want to eat at the hotel (as it is pricey)
"Not sure this is actually an Intercontinental hotel"
Hmm, where do I start' The good; - Lobby bar service is excellent and it's a really nice setting - The Meat and Wine Co restaurant attached to the property serves a great steak. That's sort of where it ends. The bad; - Rooms are at least 5 years past their useable date. The bathrooms are dated, the carpets actually threadbare and the headboard is something from the 70's. Bed was OK and great view but for a double upgrade as a Platinum Ambassador I dread to think what the lower rooms are like. - Room service; smallest and most expensive club sandwich in the world. - Daily servicing of the room; whilst appreciating that most guests will be working people and not back until 5pm+ that shouldn't be taken for granted. - 'Instant service' button; err no. Not instant. At all. Frankly the hotel should close down, refurbish, retrain and re-open with a new attitude that actually gels with the Intercon ethos. We've stayed at many Intercons and so far this is by far the worst. A recent stay at a 4-star Hilton in Canada was a better experience. Sorry, wanted to love it but just wasn't happening.
