I'm a ~30yrs old female, stayed here with a friend of mine for the weekend just to climb the Harbour bridge & down a few drinks at Blue Bar.
For those of u obsessed with views, u may find this review interesting.
I was on a mission to find the hotel with the BEST view of the Harbour Bridge & Opera house together. This proved to be difficult because of the odd shape Sydney harbour is.
My short list was the Intercon or Shangri-la.
if u google map Shangri-la, it looks directly at the Opera house & a side view of the bridge.
If u google map Intercon, it looks directly at the bridge & rear view of the Opera house.
So which is more important to u?
Interior is lovely
Window has a couch to enjoy the view
Beds are like sleeping on clouds
Check in/check out process is fine
Shower & water pressure is fine
Room service is fine (oysters were small but fresh & delicious)
Few minutes walk from Opera House, Bridge, The Rocks, cbd etc
2 buildings in the way of a potentially awesome view
I stayed on level 23 which was not high enough. (King opera room)
The view on a higher level at the gym was better but not by much.
There is a AMP building on the left & Quay West apt block on the right that just ruin the view.
In no way are these controllable factors for Intercon so when booking, go on the highest level u can or even ask yourself what's important, a room with Bridge view? Or Opera house view?
