InterContinental Sydney Double Bay

Sydney’s glamorous Double Bay escape
Nestled in the upscale Sydney suburb of Double Bay, InterContinental Sydney Double Bay is the spot to go once you’ve played tourist and are ready to experience more local living.

With warm village vibes and located a stone’s throw from the water, the hotel is an ideal destination for families, couples and even Sydney residents looking for a perfect staycation spot.
