    Upon my return to Sydney I spent one day at this hotel. Is right in the prime area and close to everything within the city. As one walks into the hotel there is an expansive entrance and the lobby is simply beautiful. There are a couple of restaurants surrounding lobby and conference rooms too. At the back is the “RiverBank.” One can walk along the river and footbridge. Is simply enchanting.

    We were only there one night. Staff were lovely, room needs an update but very clean, tidy, spacious and comfortable.
    The food however was tasteless at the buffet breakfast. After a few drinks the night before I was excited to go and eat a massive breakfast but I ordered eggs Florentine and it was half a meal, eggs hard poached, the bun wasn’t toasted and in general tasteless! The buffet I found much the same. Bitterly disappointed with the food.

    The InterContinental has been my accommodation of choice in Adelaide for nearly a decade now; the Customer Service is always outstanding, and the quality of the rooms and other facilities are better than other similarly priced venues. There are obviously peak periods when the price is somewhat less competitive and I have had to look elsewhere, but I always love coming back to this Hotel.

    The Intercontinental is my go-to default for staying in the city. There's really nowhere better for events at the Festival Centre or over the river at the Oval, particularly now that the footbridge is available.
    The staff are truly something special. Over many stays and functions there, I've never met a member of staff who didn't have a smile for you and who wouldn't either go out of their way to help or, if they couldn't, would make sure that they found someone who could.
    And, of course, the views from the rooms on the upper levels are probably the best in town.
    In a foodie town like Adelaide there's little need to eat in a hotel, but don't assume (as I do in most places I stay) that the best option is to head out to a restaurant, the chefs here are at the top of their game - they won't disappoint and, while hotel dining is never going to be the most aggressively priced, it's not as painful as many places.

    So, why only 4 stars rather than 5 for what's so far been a gushing review?
    Well, while it's not going to put me off staying there, it has to be said, after staying there last night, that the old girl is starting to look a little tired in places - you know the signs: decor in the rooms looking a little retro, lots of noticeable scuff marks in the walkways, my floor had a few patches of unpainted plaster repairs, no phone charger sockets in the room, limited features on the TV by modern standards, aircon could be a bit quieter. Nothing major; just window dressing but if I'm noticing it you can bet others are as well.
    All in all though, whether for business or pleasure, this reviewer says YES! Go for it... Unless you're an habitual glass-half-empty person, you'll love your stay there.

    Room Tip: The higher up the better!

    Arrived early and staff were able to offer us our room before check in. They gave us 1401 right by the lift - I didn’t hear the lift once.

    Lovely room with a good view over the river towards the oval.

    Nice food at breakfast.

    We ate at the Japanese restaurant in the hotel - Shiki and wow was it great. There was limited availability on a Saturday so we had the 5.30 sitting and sat at a side table rather than at a hot table but it was s great experience so definitely book early it’s not cheap but the meal is amazing.

    Very good location right by the Adelaide train station and close to Rundle Mall a few minutes walk and the museum which is also worth going to for the Aboriginal section and the Pacific island - great shop as well.

    Also go to Central Market for food it’s lovely.
