Deluxe quarters for dignitaries and celebrities with harbor views

Check-in to the five-star InterContinental Sydney hotel has become a pastime for celebrities and royalty. Though the hotel boasts an exterior that has withstood nearly two centuries, there is nothing stale about the interior. Constructed to offer guests breathtaking views of the Sydney Harbour, the hotel's rooms, dining venues and rooftop lounges offer a deluxe experience. For style, sophistication and world class treatment, InterContinental Sydney delivers.  

  • Chef Justin North of Etch wins 2009 SMH Good Food Guide Chef of the Year
  • Indoor swimming pool with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour
  • Rooftop lounge with wraparound terrace
  • Mix of contemporary design and traditional architecture
If not merely for sweeping vistas of the harbor from the windowed sitting areas, the 509 guest rooms inspire. Rooms blend the needs of business travelers--a spacious work area, high-speed Internet access (fees apply), electrical converters and dual phone lines with messaging--with those of the vacationer. Expect plush bedding, stellar views and contemporary design. Hues of cream, plum, heather and silver induce relaxation amid a catalogue of offerings.

An unsurpassed dining experience marks Etch, the babe of award-winning chef Justin North. The restaurant serves organic European cuisine to Sydney's glamorous. For something a bit more casual, Café Opera (famous for their weekend seafood buffet) serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The indoor swimming pool, 24-hour fitness center and rooftop lounge with a wraparound terrace please discerning and design-conscious guests. The hotel also offers a spa and salon.

Both parking and Wi-Fi are available (fees apply).
