The InterContinental Sydney Double Bay, Sydney's 5-star celebrity hotspot has undergone extensive renovations and is now open for guests after a five-year hiatus.

The InterContinental boasts 140 rooms, including 15 suites, with most opening out onto private balconies that offer sweeping views of Double Bay.

Brintons has supplied carpets for the guest rooms, reception and dining areas in sleek, modern geometric designs.

Previously the Ritz Carlton, the hotel had hosted celebrities from around the world including Princess Diana, Sir Elton John, Madonna, Bill Clinton and INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

A blend of contemporary design and beautifully reinstated features, the newly opened InterContinental Sydney Double Bay has been extensively renovated from the nineties style of the Ritz Carlton, but still retains some of the original features including the Italian white marble throughout the hotel and the grey-green marble fireplaces. A grand piano in the exclusive Stillery gin bar has also been restored.
