InterContinental Sydney is undergoing a transformation set to redefine the luxury hotel experience while paying homage to the building’s rich history. Every guest room and suite has been reimagined, alongside elevated public spaces. Included is a new central lobby bar and dining space, The Treasury, rooftop bar, Aster, offering 270 degree views of Sydney Harbour, and an exclusive offering in re-imagined rooftop spaces for Club guests. Restoration of original features will ensure the heritage-listed Treasury Building is preserved for the future.

The completion of this project in September 2022 will see Sydney’s most iconic hotel enter a new era.

About the Transformation

New Guest Rooms and Suites

New, generously sized guest rooms and suites are inspired by the surrounding landscape, positioned on the doorstep of Sydney Harbour and Sydney Royal Botanic Garden.
Quintessential Australian elements of water, sand, wood and sky add a relaxing environment to retreat within the heart of the CBD.

World-class Bars

At the heart of the hotel, new lobby bar The Treasury delivers an immersive experience that engenders memories of the past. Explore a bold Australian palette and creative beverage concepts.

Upon the hotel’s coveted rooftop space is Aster, a new signature bar with outdoor terrace, welcoming uninterrupted views across Sydney’s skyline.

InterContinental Sydney will continue to operate an exclusive Club InterContinental lounge in the hotel’s re-imagined rooftop spaces, offering Club members an iconic experience with sweeping Sydney Harbour views, exceptional privileges, and tailored luxury service.

Facility Changes

As the hotel undertakes its monumental transformation, guests staying before completion will encounter changes to their stay. Those visiting over this period will be the first to experience our newly refurbished luxury residences. Intermittent noise may be experienced, particularly in public spaces throughout the hotel between the hours of 9am – 5pm, Monday – Saturday.
