Located in the restored Treasury Building of 1851, InterContinental Sydney remains one of the city’s most coveted icons. Now after a major $100 million refurbishment the luxury hotel is set to reopen its doors with two new bars, guest rooms and suites and an impressive rooftop bar. In fact, this will be the first time the hotel opens it’s rooftop for guests to sweeping views of the harbour. The hotel has previously hosted celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton and Matt Damon among others.
Estimated to complete in September this year, the restoration will see all 509 rooms touched up in hues of green and blue with the refurbishments acting as homage to the buildings rich history.
With local architecture studio Woods Bagot at the helm, the hotel has been redesigned with elegant and contemporary features while restoring the original features of the heritage-listed Treasury Building. Plans for refurbishments have been underway since the last two years and will finally see completion in the coming months.
New guest rooms and suites are poised to overlook the harbour along with the Royal Botanic Gardens and guests can also expect a rooftop pool deck with new bars and retail options. The rooftop space is set to transform into a signature bar with an outdoor terrace featuring glittering views of the city.
Sitting in the heart of Circular Quay, near The Rocks, the new rooftop bar will open just in time for Christmas and New Year festivities.
The hotel has remained open to the public through the duration of the renovation with limited access to some public spaces. Check out their official website for all the details on the refurbishment.
