If you can get a bridge view go intercontinental and watch the ship dock

They are both good though

The room at both are full harbour bridge view and I presume it is a short walk from both to the terminal

Thanks again

Yup, short walk to pier from both. Slightly downhill. The Shangri La is a fair bit closer.

 

I have only stayed at Shangri-La... really nice hotel. I had a harbour view room...but it was of Darling Harbour not Circular Quay. Might be worth double checking if you decide to stay there... I think they promote their Circular Quay view rooms as having Opera House Views.

 

cheers

Checked room details at the Shangri -la

 

Luxuriously furnished, the Deluxe Grand Harbour View rooms offer breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. These rooms are located on levels 5-23 of the hotel and feature modern design and furnishings for a relaxing stay in Sydney

 

And the intercontinental

 

32 sqm views sydneys iconic harbour and harbour bridge window seat maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child rollaway bed at a charge ipod docking station free access to gym and indoor swimming pool internet at a charge for non ihg rewards club members.

So not sure After all its only one night

I've stayed at both, my vote is the Shangri la.

 

If it's just a quick bed and breaksfast, it probably doesn't matter, but I really like the horizon club lounge at the Shangri La Sydney. (if you get a room that allows you access). It has beautiful floor to celing windows that run the length of the lounge looking over the harbour. - and you have your breakfast, drinks, nibbles/snacks there of course as well as check in/out up there also.....

 

My partner would disagree and would talk us into the Four Seasons Circular Quay, liking their executive club lounge better than the horizon court (not me - it's nice, but I much prefer the view of the harbour from the Horizon club lounge). but as that's not on your choice of two, we won't bother talking it up....:)

We've stayed at the Four Seasons twice before for cruises out of Sydney. Harbour views rooms are more exy, but the views are wonderful. Only a 3 minute walk to Circular Quay.

 

I would stay there again. 5 star quality. I loved it.

 

I haven't stayed at the Shangri-La or the Intercontinental.
