Weekend trip

Good location. Walking distance to CBD, Casino Southbank and Southwarf DFO . The staff were very friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. Carpets in hallways slightly worn. Had a concern with king delux bedding. Two beds pushed together leaving a seam down the middle, something to ask if booking king delux room. Drinks in bar was very expensive. Overall pleasant stay.

Impeccable service

From the moment we arrived to our departure, the experience at the Intercontinental Rialto was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - even after checking out, 2 staff members including the Concierge went to great pains to print theatre tickets for a show in Sydney. This saved us a 3 hour round trip to go home and collect them as our intention was to go to the show straight from Sydney airport. The restaurant was great. Dinner was amazing and the a la carte breakfast couldn't be faulted. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Fantastic Hotel!

Hotel staff were always friendly and helpful, the hotel itself was modern and clean and the rooms were comfortable. The beds are amazing and comfortable. The hotel location is a short distance walk to all the major attractions. Will definitely return.

Great Weekend

Stayed Fri & Sat nights in King Room, good amenities and friendly staff. Close to southern cross station. Good for the Football. Short walk to Southbank & Casino. Stayed here many years ago and would appear that rooms have been upgraded since. Valet Parking $50 per night is getting up there a bit. Would stay again.

treated like a VIP

Stayed 2 nights with family/ friends enjoying dinner and a theatre show. We came from regional Victoria and Broome, so a night in the "big smoke" was made extra special for us by the hotel staff. The only drawback was "lukewarm" showers in the morning - must have run out of hot water... but when we mentioned this at checkout, they were apologetic and waived our valet parking fees. Overall a very good experience.

Love this hotel!

Have stayed here before & I will definitely be coming back. A five star hotel in all aspects but not a five star price tag! The hotel also has a lot of charm being in an old building but it doesn't feel old & this visit we discovered a number of great restaurants near by. I also joined up the reward program which instantly allowed us complimetary wifi & a late check out (2pm) - perfect as our flight was 6:50pm. Can't wait to stay here again.
