The New Soul ofthe Old World
Sydney, a place that was only known to the world in the 18th century, is now one of the most livable cities in the world. It attracts visitors with its bustling city life and wonderful sunny beach. It continues to uplift this most populous and largest area in Australia. In the same year that the Australian gold mine was discovered, the British government built the National Finance Building in Sydney in 1851, and this classically significant building is the predecessor of today‘s InterContinental Sydney, and it has retained its historical glory.
InterContinental Hotels Group is a seasoned expert with more than 70 years of experience in the establishment of the world hotel brands. As early as 1985, this classic style old building was selected as the InterContinental Group‘s foothold in Sydney. Since then, it has been operating for more than 30 years and it is not unrelated to its terrific location. InterContinental Sydney is located in the Circular Quay extending in all directions to places such as the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, the Rocks, and the Botanical Garden. The transportation hub on the terminal can take you to the subway, city rail, and ferry conveniently. Speaking of the hotel building itself, the classical building from the 19th century wrapped up the main building of 31 floors standing on the corner of the street. The historical tune and the surrounding environment make a wonderful integration, without abruptness. The integration is also reflected in the building. New and old wall decoration styles collided in the inner court. The huge chandelier that hangs from the top of the room breaks free the monotonous space; the spiral stairways next to it guard the famous black vintage elevatorthe oldest heritage lift in the Southern Hemisphere from the 19th century.
The Comfort of Changing Narration
InterContinental Sydney has 31 floors, a total of 509 rooms, including 28 suites. Rooms are generally 32 square meters, with beige as its main color, clean and comfortable, and the unassuming and generous interior with a gentle lighting show InterContinental‘s consistent pursuit of comfort experience. Because of its great location, the views of the room can be city streets, or famous Eastern Harbour city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The other suites are located on high floors, ranging in size from 70 square meters to 245 square meters. The interiors can also be changed from ”exclusive” lowkey luxury suites to ”Australian” suites with gorgeous local colors. Apart from the charm of the rooms themselves, the InterContinental Supper Club on the roof ignites more wonderful feelings. Located on the roof of the building with a terrace, this is the only place in Sydney with a sweeping 270 degrees view uninterrupted across the Harbour. After breakfast here, find a spot that can comfortably look over the sky and enjoy the free highspeed wireless network and local calls. The entertainment area and business center meet the dual needs of leisure and work. The service of private concierge further reflects the warming care of InterContinental. After five o‘clock in the afternoon, the club started offering cocktails and snacks. When you push open the door and go out on the terrace, you will surely be fascinated by the evening and night scenery in Sydney.
A Joyous InterContinental Experience
InterContinental Sydney‘s menu is as amazing as its comfortable accommodation. ”CAFÉ OPERA” is the hotel‘s main restaurant, and it is of good quality.
