    Welcome to the Holiday Inn Sydney ! Located in the heart of Cape Breton Island , voted number one Island destination in the Continental US and Canada and ranked 3rd most desirable island destination in the world according to Travel + Leisure Magazine . The Holiday Inn Sydney is the perfect starting point to tour Cape Breton's Island's historic villages, play a round of golf at the Highland Links Golf Course ,one of the world's top rated courses. Revel in the traditional music of Cape Breton when the Island transforms into a festival of music during the Celtic Colours International Music Festival . The Holiday Inn Sydney is just a short drive to the Fortress of Louisbourg , the largest reconstruction project in North America of an 18th century French Fortress. Experience what it was like to descend into the dark abyss of a coal mine at the Miner's Museum and let a retired coal miner spin yarns of yester year. Tour the bold highlands of our Cabot Trail , high above spectacular ocean views, where moose and bald eagles can be seen. Or go whale watching and watch pods of Pilot whales capering in the shimmering waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. At the Holiday Inn Sydney we strive to make your stay with us a memorable one!
