Sydney, NSW 2000


Just a short walk away from Parliament House and positioned on the edge of the world's most stunning harbour, InterContinental Sydney overlooks the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Royal Botanic Gardens. Steps away are the Central Business District, the historic Rocks area, leading shops and boutiques and some of the finest restaurants this city has to offer.

Located only 12km from Sydney International Airport and with easy access to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel, getting to the hotel is quick and easy.

The hotel is built on the site of the first Government House of New South Wales and is distinguished by the majestic sandstone façade of the Treasury Building dating from 1851, a landmark listed by the National Trust.  Bridging the old and the new elements of the hotel is The Cortile, the focal point and heart of InterContinental Sydney.  Surrounding this elegant and timeless courtyard are three tiers of sandstone arcades that create a soaring atrium covered with a glass skylight.

Since opening in 1985 InterContinental Sydney has received many prestigious accolades and continues to play a key role in the history and life of NSW, and is the leading hotel for visiting Royalty, Heads of State, diplomats, foreign dignitaries and the world’s political elite.

Here, meetings and incentives delegates can feel inspired by the charming surroundings and gain valuable insight into Sydney’s rich and colourful past.
