Time Out says
Set in a building that dates all the way from 1851, the InterContinental now features such modern extras as high-speed internet access and digital TV in all rooms, plus two TV broadcast and video conferencing studios. Rooms have a classic-contemporary feel and come with either harbour or city views. Sleek restaurant/lounge bar Mint Bar & Dining serves contemporary cuisine, the sandstone-arcaded Cortile Café dispenses traditional high tea, and Café Opera offers a seafood buffet. The luxurious rooftop lounge, with its uninterrupted harbour views, is only accessible to Club InterContinental members, who pay extra for such privileges as a personal concierge service. The vistas from the top over Sydney Harbour are spectacular, and available to all guests from the indoor swimming pool on the 31st floor.
