The InterContinental Hotel is ideally located for access to the Opera House and Circular Quay area. Easy to get to other parts of town either by walking or using the monorail. Try to get a room on as high a floor as possible as this makes a big difference to the view. We had a harbour view room which was lovely. Wonderful view of the Botanical Gardens and possible to see the Opera House. Note that the Club Lounge is only accessible to customers who book a Club Room. The other bar area is on the ground floor and is internal. We went to the Shangri-La to get a cocktail in a bar with a fantastic view of the Harbour Bridge. The room in the InterContinental was very good. Nice and spacious with a comfortable bed and a lovely windowseat for maximising opportunities to admire the view. It is worth using the black-out blinds provided as this makes a big difference to sleep quality. The only slightly strange thing is the window between the bathroom and bedroom. Great if you want to look at the view while cleaning your teeth - but it makes the bathroom less private than it might be.
The food in Cafe Opera was excellent and service attentive. There is a choice of a large buffet or a la carte menu. The "special" meal in Etch was disappointing - all a bit pretentious.
Overall we had a great stay at the InterContinental Sydney and would recommend it to other travellers.
