We stayed in a Harbour View room during Christmas. Our room had a great view over the Botanical Gardens and the eastern harbour (not the Opera House or Harbour Bridge). The room was nice, very clean and quite spacious with ample room for a comfy King bed, a day bed, lounge, large desk and armchair. Good quality toiletries, slippers &...

Arrived a little tired and was greeted by a superb desk manager who made check in so easy and took us to this wonderful room with a view of the Opera House and Sydney Bridge with the Emerald Princess in dock. The room was first class with all amenities and a fruit bowel welcome. Although a late arrival we had...

Fantastic location just 5 minutes from Circular Quay, The Opera House and 10-15 minutes from the Museums. Rooms bigger than most in City, and very comfortable. Advise joining their rewards program, then you get free breakfast and wifi, otherwise you have to pay for both. The harbour view rooms overlooking the Botanic Gardens do indeed have a wonderful view. The...

Had the pleasure of staying at the Intercontinental while on a Tauck Tour of Australia. This hotel is truly a 5 star in Sydney's downtown, just minutes walk to either the Sydney Opera House or the famed Sydney Bridge Climb, a wonderful stay by any accounts, don't miss it.

A good hotel all round, nothing much to complain about although also not much wow factor. The exception is the superb views across the harbour from the lounge bar at the top of the hotel. The one small complaint is the lack of late evening eating options, when I didn't feel like venturing out into town or sitting in my...

Every facet of our stay was meet with professional courtesy and gracious attentiveness. The concierge was invaluable; his recommendations were perfect, from sightseeing to restaurants, they never missed an opportunity to excel. The hotel restaurants were unbelievable, but we ate in town most of the time. (Two weeks of dining, and only duplicated cuisines twice). And, yes, kangaroo is on...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
