History, colonial grandeur and modern sophistication set the style of Hotel InterContinental Sydney. For business or pleasure a stay at the Hotel InterContinental Sydney offers the best of both worlds. Located in the heart of the city's business and commerce areas, the hotel is within a short walking distance of the Harbour, Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, galleries and Sydney's exclusive shopping boutiques. Situated on historic Macquarie Street, Hotel InterContinental Sydney is built around the old Treasury Building, an Australian landmark dating back to 1851. The transformation of this building into a five star hotel has won accolades from architects, conservationists and our guests. The sandstone and natural light of The Cortile combine to create a unique ambient environment. The deluxe five-star Hotel Inter-Continental Sydney offers 198 guest rooms that meet the contemporary requirements of today's traveller. Victorian-style furnishings complement artwork depicting historic Sydney, while modern amenities include in-room climate controls and colour televisions with 24 hour news and movie channels. With spectacular harbour views, the range of 38 tastefully furnished suites reflect the hotel's historic past with furniture, fabrics and colours mixed in surprising ways, as though in a private house. Club Inter-Continental occupies four dedicated floors. Club guests enjoy extra services and privileges at the Club Lounge, which offers check-in facilities, business centre, meeting room and complimentary breakfast, tea, coffee, hors d'oeuvres and evening drinks. Relax in our heated pool with one of the best views across Sydney Harbour and beyond. Or, if you prefer, regain your vitality and work out in our fully equipped gymnasium and indulge afterwards with an aromatic massage. The hotel features several restaurants and bars, catering to any taste and discerning palate for casual or special occasion dining. The style is distinctly Australian but featuring Asian flavours, imported delicacies and local seafoods.'117' showcases fine wines and food partnerships whilst local and overseas guests delight in authentic Italian cuisine and spectacular views from '30 Something', level 31.
