The 140-room InterContinental Sydney Double Bay has been officially opened this morning (Nov 6).
The opening marks the revival of the original building at 33 Cross Street, once a Ritz-Carlton and then a Stamford, with restored features such as the grand staircase, Italian marble bathrooms and fireplaces, and Parisian balconies, enhanced by a contemporary redesign.
InterContinental Sydney Double Bay General Manager Frederic Brohez said the hotel has opened all rooms, features and facilities, from the first floor to the sixth, simultaneously.
“We have seen this hotel grow from a construction site teeming with builders, painters and tilers, into a stunning contemporary retreat replete with designer furnishings, kitchens packed with produce and equipment, and more than 100 full-time staff ready to make our guests feel special,” Brohez said.
InterContinental Sydney Double Bay has worked together with developers and owners, Royal Hotels Australia and designers Bates Smart Architects to bring the bayside retreat to life over the past 12 months.
