Night out in Sydney

December 2, 2003

Simply Sydney

Planning a big night out in Sydney? Perhaps you and your beloved want to slink off to the city for a night of fun? Or maybe it’s a shopping, dining and sightseeing extravaganza you crave? We’ve got the low down on what’s new in Sydney from where to stay to where to play…

Seeing Sydney on foot is easy if you locate yourself somewhere central. Of course, you’ll want to make sure you have a view of spectacular Sydney Harbour, and it goes without saying that you’ll be needing a luxury room and fabulous service from friendly, obliging staff. Get thee to the Inter.Continental Sydney! This elegant hotel might have been built in 1851 but the old girl has certainly aged graciously. Like many women of a certain age, the

Inter.Continental Sydney has had her fair share of cosmetic changes, but the heart and soul of this wonderfully historic building has been preserved.

The hotel has been lovingly restored, preserving a major Australian landmark, the Treasury Building. The banquet rooms and the lobby, the focal point of the hotel, are actually located in the former Treasury, and if you are looking for somewhere to hold the ultimate fairytale wedding, you’d be hard pressed to find somewhere as romantic or classy.

But as the saying goes, everything old is new again, and in November Inter.Continental Sydney‘s 509 rooms and 29 suites underwent a stunningly modern makeover, providing each and every guest with unrivalled view of the harbour and all it has to offer. Rooms have an indulgent New York vibe to them with dark wood and luxurious soft furnishings. Enormous beds (with the best doonas in town) ensure a blissful night’s sleep for weary travellers. Snuggle up with your loved one on the cushioned window seat, sipping champagne and daydreaming as you press your face up against the window, of the prestige harbourside property that you’ll one day own – if only in your dreams…
