Editorial review:

Occupying the old Treasury Building, Intercontinental Sydney Hotel elegantly mixes the old architecture with a new renovated looking. The result is great standard rooms and a stupendous club level with views of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge. The restaurant which is run by chef Jeff Campbell has had great reviews, and the staff is very helpful. Despite the $3-million that was spent on renovations, a handful of visitors find it only average apart from the location.

                    The breakfast service is very confuse and poor. The area for the hot food buffet is small, causing long lanes. Also my table was given to another guests while I was serving myself in the buffet, causing embarassement for both guest.

                    general design - seemed very dated - especiallly the cafe for breakfast

                    Location was great. Service was fine: friendly though not very inclusive.

                    The pool and the fitness centre.

                  • Family with children
                    7.8

                    Excellent location and very friendly helpful staff

                    Room keys had to be used in the lift and were floor specific which was very inconvenient as our children were on a different floor. Very expensive car parking.

                    The location of the hotel was just great for views of the harbour and access to all areas.

                    The hotel rooms did not have free wireless internet access and there was no complimentary bottled water in the room which is a rounding error when paying these prices for rooms.

                    Wonderful hotel with excellent service and quality. Situated near to Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay.

                    The location was perfect for our needs; very close to the Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay & passenger ferry depot where we could connect to anywhere in the harbor.. Also reasonably close to "The Rocks" for shopping and eating. We did not need a taxi for any of the above. For our purposes the location was perfect. The hotel was very up-scale and impressive.

                    The business center was a dissapointment. I found the computers slow and antiquated. The hotels policy of paying for a certian number of minutes or hours in advance and being automaticly logged out if you are running late was a big inconvienience. A much better system would be to let the client use what-ever time is necessary and pay when they are finished.

                    Comfortable beds and clean bathroom

                    $495.00 is expensive for a bed for the night and the snacks are too dear. Rationing of tea and milk and no biscuits was a bit cheap, considering the cost of the room.

                    We stayed on the club section and had really great service. The view from the 31st floor was fabulous and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good with a variety of breakfast foods, an afternoon tea, and lovely cocktails pre-dinner.

                    We enjoyed all aspects of the InterContinental however there was miscommunication between Booked.net and the hotel in terms of the hotel room type.

                    Room was fine but nothing special for the money that was charged

                    According to Booked.net money for the stay was to be charged upon departure, however Intercontinental charged our credit card 2 months prior to our stay and did not want to refund the money. Also very outdated and old hotel. Booked this place for the view of Sydney Harbour, however no view to be seen from anywhere in the hotel, unless you go to small indoor pool,or pay $150.00 per day to use members club facilities. Would not recommend this hotel, you can get much better place to stay in Sydney.

                    the location was excellent.

                    it was great experience however, the room facilities was very old especially the bath room its classic but I guess they need to renew it.

                    The quality of the staff in the foyer lunch?coffee area.

                    The room smelt a little of smoke. The ice was delivered to the room when we were out for the evening and had melted by the time we had returned - and wanted to use it.
