Lovely hotel with rooms overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Opera House. Great service and lovely rooms and restaurants. Located at Circular Quay so very close to everything.

Our bridal party plus a couple extras stayed the night prior to the wedding. We booked 2 Harbourview Suites and 2 City rooms. They hotel was amazing and catered to our every need. They even sent up bubbly to the room for us to celebrate. My husband and I also stayed the night of the wedding and the night following the wedding. For anyone who wants to feel a million dollars I recommend you stay here.

Very lovely and we stayed there on the night of our wedding. They had a nice personalised note which was beautiful touch. We stayed a few days before and after the wedding.

Despite its great view, facility and the reputation, we were disappointed with their service. On our first visit for consultation, She made us wait more than 30 min. She showed up later and apologized and gave us a free upgrade with the package. However on the ceremony day, the napkin holders we provided were not even placed (Still don't know where they are as she hasn't replied to any emails or phone calls after our wedding). There was a mistake with the welcoming board (wrong names as another couple's names were on). Some guests complained that they had to wait so long for their drinks although we had the premium drinks package.

The InterContinental was an amazing experience start to finish. Nothing was too much and they were easy to work with, gave good advice and support and looked after our guests. The food was amazing, the venue was so spectacular I didn't need to decorate at all.
