          Really good location, great facilities, decent value for the money, staff was really friendly and helpful.

          Internet access relatively expensive (A$30 per day).

          Proximity to Entertainment Centre was excellent. Valet parking was very helpful.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Smart tidy room, good location which enabled us to walk via Darling Harbour down to the city. Also very handy to Paddy's Market and Chinatown

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We were upgraded which was wonderful. We loved the view of the ferris wheel at night. There were also fireworks in Darling Harbour. The pool had a stunning view as well.

          The cooked breakfast was a let down. Not worth the price. You can get much better at Darling Harbour.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Staff very helpful and attentive.

          Bed springs were very loud. Even gentle sex sounded like there was an orgy going on.

          The catering staff were the only bright light at this hotel. The catering staff were excellent, particularly the young guy who seems to run the show.

          This hotel is a shocker. The concierge staff that I dealt with were rude. Firstly, as I was checking-in, I gave my name and they stated that their was no record of my booking. After 10-15 minutes, they found it and blamed Booked.net for getting my name wrong...The room was, at best, a 3 star room. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the next room. As for the breakfast that was included? Well they had a record for one of the two nights that breakfast was included... No record, no breakfast. Don't waste your time staying here, you'll regret it.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Close to all facilities. Great resturants, entertainment. Better valve than what Accor was offering at the same time. Much cheaper infact.

          Bed, cleanliness

        • Single
          8.2

          The helpfulness of the staff.

          It was obvious that the room needed some minor maintence being carried out..

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          It was nice and close to Central Stationand Paddies Markets

          Room service food was a bit sad

        • Family with children
          8.2

          location is excellent

          extra charge for breakfast buffet is out of line

        • Single
          8.2

          It was close to the conference venue

          I couldn't see how it was connected to the conference venue by undercover walkway as is advertised

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The staff were very helpful. My husband needed an extension cord for a breathing-assist machine and they went out of their way to source and provide one. Check-in and check-out were very efficient.

          There was a balcony, but the access door did not open. Would have been good to have access to fresh air.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Location and close transport, as well as the huge range of bars and restaurants available.

          The only thing I would like to see an improvement on is the tea making facilities.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Good position and free use of computers for Internet
