Position Too far from airport,
Its location No
The only thing I liked was the availability of the outdoor pool and access to internet in the lobby. When I arrived and walked into my room, it smelled horrendous. Then walking into the bathroom their was some object of grossness in the shower. We called immediately and transfered to another room that was ok, but still had an odd odor. Then later in the evening, when coming back from dinner their was puke in 2 of the 4 elevators just sitting there. The front desk was informed, but really didnt act on it. I had to ride up to my floor with puke on the ground cause the other 2 elevators were taking too long. I spent 475 dollars for the one night.....I was extremely disappointed. Didnt even bother to try and get a refund.
The location at Darling Harbour-It is so easy getting to anywhere-We went to two shows one at the opera house and one at the olympic stadium--The food is varied and great. A bit surprised to find that I was charged a fee for using a Visa card, the room is very expensive as is, and then to find another $22 on top of $1400.00 for a 3 day stay I found a bit pathetic, not that the $22 is a lot, but one feel is that really necessary from a hotel of this class?
I enjoyed the closness to the city of Sydney and the harbour side views from our room. The additional cost of the car parking. The lack of exhaust fans in the bathroom.
Close procimentry to Darling Harbour & Star City & Entertainment Centre & China Town & paddys Markets & Sydney Aquiriam
the breakfast was lovely,and it is very handy the position, the bathrooms need a fan
The hotel was in a good location with easy access to all attractions the staff were friendly and very helpful with info about the area, easy to find from the airport Could be better priced ... thought it was expensive and did not include breakfast as most other hotels in the area were cheaper and had same facilities and included breakfast
close to the city
being very handy to darling harbour, central sydney
The location, the balcony on 7th floor and the services available. Bed was comfortable too. Could do with some fresh soft furnishings in lounge area.
rooms are spacious, clean,has a nice kitchen with good brand kitchen utensils. i have never stayed in a service apartment this modern...and i would come back... and stay here again... its not a great location...its difficult if you dont have a car....
location and facilities casino didnt provide free drinks
The apartment was very roomy and comfortable, clean and well appointed. It was conveniently located.
Elevator seemed faulty, slow, stopping at floors when no-one was there and very even told us it was out of order on an unattended floor. Talking to staff on the phone was not very helpful due to language issues.
Convenient location, plenty to do, staff very helpful, rooms lovely and spacious, plenty of options for dining
Hotel apartments were really nice, we had a two bedroom, and it had two big bathrooms, with a great view over the city. Also had a kitchen so you can cook if you wish, overall we loved it here!
Fantastic apartments! Fantastic Facilities!
The helpfulness of the staff
Great apartment. Excellent facilities. Friendly, helpful staff. We found it difficult to find main entrance, valet parking. It would be really helpful to provide guests with detailed directions when confirming bookings.
Being able to have everything within walking distance. And the view from the room of the sky line at night
The hotel is near to a shopping mall, food & very near to some of the interesting places to visit. First of all, this is not a complaint.. This is just a purely suggestion. But i personally think that the room is too small for a price of AUD300 per night.. Perhaps upgrading your room to a slightly bigger room and changing your TV room to an LCD TV would be great.. And providing an extra pillow would be a bonus :)
Very comfortable, quiet, close to the convention center and shopping, small cafes, weather no
The views of city were great.....convenient for city access. not really.... just ok. The price has increased quite a lot from my last stay.
Staff was very friendly over all! The woman working the front desk argued woth me at checkout over my bill, she looked up the wrong room even after seeing my name & the room was different. I understand different dialects and accents are hard to jugglbut more patience is important when dealing with internationals.
The shower pressure. The room was disappointingly small. I realise that it would be expected that a twin single room would be small - I will however not book this room configuration in future. Also the view was taken up mainly by the curtain. I also thought that for a Habour View/City View it would have been higher than the 2nd floor.
Locality Room's curtain had been broken & not replaced, so no privacy; very limited in room facilities
Location; view of harbour Incredibly small room meant for one person only; had to crawl over spouse to get out of bed. Banged a sore knee into the wall when I turned over. Having no space on one side of the bed is unacceptable when two adults in a room. This was not told to us when we booked.
Friendly atmosphere. Serviceminded staff. Nice view and close to restaurants, shopping, museeums etc. I think the hotel could have free internet or at least a little cheaper.
Reception staff - particularly Jessica- were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was really central for Darling Harbour. The first room we were offered on the 10th floor was very poor it was like being in a corridor and we were so disappointed not to have a harbour view but the reasonable priced upgrade made a world of difference
Conveniently situated and although close to amenities was pleasantly quiet. Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Reception staff very ordinary. Too expensive and didn't like having to pre authorise additional payment of $100 that I was told would take up to 10 days to be credited back to my card.
Good location and modern facilities. Homely feel
Great room, with excellent view on Darling Harbour, and a spacious balcony. Very good value for money.
Very nicely set up. We ended up in a two bedroom apartment (we paid for a one-bedroom) so we had plenty of space. 42nd floor. Elevators were excellent so no delays. Will stay there again (depending on price). We found it a little bit noisy (from the ground - not from adjoining apartments). Just single glazing. Not a major problem.
luxury comfortable serviced apt. in the center of sydney city. walking distance to Darling Harbour and Museum and chinatown and of course the biggest shopping mall on Pitt street. Another 35 mins walking to fish market was enjoyable too. except the refrigerator was a bit noisy during the night.
Clean, tidy, nice color of the furniture, sercurity card to get in lift, wonderful smell of the lobby!!! No toliet in the lobby; no patient of the reception worker when I was calling the reception for a comb.
Really enjoyed my stay here. Impressive staff. Really went out of their way to check me in early and effort was made for me with options. Lovely modern spacious apartment. Nice facilities, comfy bed, tasteful furniture and beautiful views with large fully opening window. Excellent location. Faultless stay. Some apartments share a main entry before your private door, other apartment occupants can be slightly noisy entering and exiting this main door. But nothing too major.
We liked its proximity to shopping and eateries in Darling Harbour
Convenient. I forgot my tupperware container and the staff asked me to wait for the lost and found report back to him made me wait for more than an hour. The result made me unsatisfied as I was the person who sit there wait for an hour and then still need me to go and ask them to remind that I was still waiting for their reply.
Good location, friendly staff and clean building Wifi should be free for hotel guests
The hotel charged USD 50,00 more than the price I had booked. I don't know why an offer is announced if you have to pay more when check-out. I consider that it is not a fair play because an offer sometimes is decisive when you book some hotel.
The location was excellent. The room had a washer/dryer, microwave, stove, dishwasher, cooktop, and dishes/silverware, and a large refrigerator, making it perfect for an extended stay (or a short stay). They provided laundry and dish detergent as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The 24-hour reception was a good amenity. The only slight complaint is that my room often was not serviced until after 3 pm.
Amazing staff - very helpful and knowledgeable and helped arrange activities for us to do around Sydney.
Horizon Club views Excellent staff Having to leave
professional staff and attention to detail and cleanliness
My husband and I had a fantastic one night getaway. It was amazing, service outstanding and relaxation perfect.
Great hotel location affording some rooms great views. Excellent bathrooms, comfortable beds. Lots of people obviously love it - maybe it helps if you upgrade to the Horizons Club, though I don't see why you should have to, especially as these rates not always on offer. Reception shambolic: no welcome, no porter, no offer of help with bags, no offer to join loyalty programme, told me the Shangri-La in Singapore is tired and needs updating! No apology for not correctly processing reservation. Horrible view of motorway toll booths. Annoying things in the bedroom like unplugged lamps, missing glasses, grubby hotel directory. Food and beverage not good. Saturday night the locals all book up the top floor restaurant and fill up the adjacent bar. Reserve days in advance or you have no chance. For a drink this leaves the Lobby Bar. Neon-lit chilled food cabinet, no music, no atmosphere, bright lighting. Nasty. Only available food outlet The Cafe. Horrible buffet. Dreadful, expensive, over-rated.
The reception staff were very friendly and efficient coupled with the room service staff who were professional, courteous and friendly. With many people at breakfast it was obvious the staff had difficulty coping with large queues, tables not set properly, inattentive staff.
The staff were amazing, the best hotel staff I have come across in Australia
The location and the staff are about the only likeable characteristics of this hotel. I paid $249 for an Advantage room requsted 2 double beds only to be told on checkin that the room only had one double bed. I then had to pay $50 to upgrade to an Executive room (a better room apparently) I failed to see the value which also included free drinks at the bar from 5.30-7.30 and breakfast which was the worst I have experienced at any hotel.
Central location difficult for car unloading in market street and small street lobby
location was great, the room was beautiful, friendly staff
Totally I evaluate this hotel better than Grace Hotel nearby. Hotel's dining, serving Indian dishes every night is bit tiresome for the guest staying 10 days like me.
room, the staff, and the location were all great nothing
Clan/tidy room Reception staff not particularly friendly
Very good, spacious bathrooms with a separate shower. Overall, hotels in Sydney are quite expensive.
perfect, with a first class concierge service
We enjoyed Sidney for WYD 2008 No. It was very comfortable.
Spacious room Delivery charges for room services
Proximity to The Rocks, Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Hyde Park, Railway Stations, Darling Harbour, Cafes, Supermarket. Excellent service from great staff!
Excellent central location, walkable to harbour and train station and monorail close by. 14 dollar by train to airport
Quiet, modern, good eating options, central, spacious bathroom
Its location to the event I was attending, would be a great flocation for tourists
easy access to the City center, shops, Cafes, Restaurants, walk araunt the Harbour, Museum and the Rocks district and walking distands to all Buss lines
Hotel staff were very helpful with any personal requests Everything came at a cost including the drinking water
The food at the hotel is rather expensive....eat out, it's cheaper.
We were very impressed with the magnificent bed and pillows. And the courtesy and efficiency of the staff at the door, reception, and room service was terrific.
Air conditing not working properly - still not cool after asking for attendance to problem Also - had to ask to have room floor cleaned
that we got up-graded and the buffet breakfast was so delicious
the location was just right for this occasion the room was comfortable, great view of the harbor and clean. the mattress was uncomfortable keep rolling into the middle and found it hard to roll back to the side room 2412
Cleanliness of rooms. Good gym and pool facilities. Great bathroom. My room had a great view of city. Friends were also staying but their room had a poor view overlooking the office block opposite. Lifts and lobby slightly old fashioned but still clean and tidy.
TV in the shower! Nothing
The courtesy of staff and its location The rooms are quite small and the drains in the showers don't work well
The spa was out of order for our last day
Gym and Executive floor accessorites Nothing
Excellent location Clean and comfortable rooms Room service was ok, but not great tasting Movies list was limited
It was my wife's 60th birthday and the little extra touches they did made the stay all the better. Great Hotel.
Hotel staff were very helpful and catered to all needs, the location is excellent for shopping & night clubs.... and the best was the Buffet Breakfast
Quality hotel. Valet parking was efficient, rooms were as advertised i.e. clean, modern with a relaxing feel air-conditioning noisy when actually trying to fall asleep
Good customer service. Slightly long check in time.
We have never stay in a luxry hotel before and decide after being together for 34 years it would be nice
I've been coming to Sydney my whole life, and always wanted to stay somewhere with a harbour view. (Family lives way out of town.) This was the ultimate harbour experience, waking up to the sunrise over the Sydney Opera House is something I will never forget. Spent more time in a hotel room than in any other, just watching the view. Staff were friendly and very accommodating without being either sycophantic or condascending, top job all round.
We really enjoyed every second of our stay and we highly recomend this hotel to any one going to Sydney
Excellent location; friendly hotel stuff; very comfortable room.
centre of city Disappointed at being given a ‘Smokers’ room. Were not asked what our preference was regards smokers or non smokers at reception. We assumed, wrongly, that we would be given a non smoking room.
comfy bed, good breakfast buffet, friendly and helpful staff very small rooms, not also spotless clean (bathroom), not much bath products, no fresh bottle of water, no slippers etc.....
Every member of staff we encountered was courteous and helpful. The rooms were well appointed & clean and the bed very comfortable. We wanted to extend our stay and the hotel made this very easy.
Location was fabulous. Harbour view a real bonus for country visitors. Luxury at an affordable price. Friendly helpful staff. A little disappointed two members of hotel staff unable to point us in direction of a very well known nearby seafood restaurant. In fact when finally assisted by a doorman we ended up walking 30 mins out of the way when restaurant was in fact a a simple short walk of between 5 -10 mins away from Four Seasons.
The welcome at the hotel and particularly at Reception was most impressive. Every staff member I encountered was so professional and friendly. For the price of the buffet breakfast, I have certainly enjoyed better in Sydney city hotels and as I was entertaining a guest one morning, I was a little disappointed with the presentation and the selection.
location they were working on the room next to mine and it was quite noisy
Stunning views of Opera House,Harbour and Bridge.Great position from which to explore city.Friendly and helpful staff. Nothing,we had a wonderful stay.
the harbour view from the room
Beautiful ambiance in historical building, great food and particulrly enjoyed breakfast.
We really loved everything until our problem at the checkout. We had requested a car to the airport to be scheduled. We stopped at the luggage arrival desk the day before. It was written down but i think no one ever called the car service. There were 4 of us with large luggage so my son had to run down the ramp into the street to flag down 2 taxis..... The international terminal airport was VERY busy and we came close to arriving too late for our flight
The concierge was excellent. Gym is small
the location to the city was peaceful ,clean the buffet was great the staff very pleasant and parking facilities I would like a better in room fridge although the ice bucket was great
The location is perfect. We did not have access to the upper terrace with a view.
The quality of the staff in the foyer lunch?coffee area. The room smelt a little of smoke. The ice was delivered to the room when we were out for the evening and had melted by the time we had returned - and wanted to use it.
The room was presented beautifully, and maintained during our stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly
the location is amazing. overall a great experience and would recommend it to friends and family! the bedrooms are beautiful the bathrooms could be bigger and more modern otherwise it was amazing.
Everything, especially the concierge service. I think the hotel should make wifi more easily available.
friendliness, comfort,location price
The room was spotless and cleaners did a good job every day. All staff went "the extra bit" to make you welcome and were very helpful. Especially when my wife became ill and had to leave. My car was parked for 6 days and received a ding in the door which I didn't find untill I returned home.
Room comfit and cleanliness. Proximity to tourist sights and transport.
very neat and fairly large rooms. the park view is beautiful. initially we were in a 'park view' room which did not face the park at all. you have to crane your neck out of the window to see the park. this should not be sold as park view. staff were happy to move us to a front facing room with beautiful view.
Clean, nice rooms , good facilities , great location
Convenient location, clean, modern There was a significant construction project blocking the front entrance and the street in front of the hotel during our stay.
Centrally located, spectacular water view, balcony for fresh air which is so rare for hotels these days. The poor positioning of the shower head and shelf must be a mistake. You need to stand flush against the wall to have a shower.
Great wifi, attentive concierge, great staff all around. Nothing negative to say, really.
Staff very helpful No pool. No bath. Found an old shoe under the bed. Not so clean.
The beds need replacement. Two in my room had collapsed. The hotel engineer saidthe box spring was broken, so they offered to put us in another room. I checked and sure enough the mattress was broken there too. They moved us to a beautiful suite, but the floor in the room was too slippery for the wheels and the bed would slide out from the wall while resting, and slide away when standing. The hotel admitted that it knew it had the same problem in another room and ultimately they had to remove the frame to keep it stationary. They need to be more diligent in room inspection.
Free upgrade at check in to a room with a harbor view None
Great hotel , Very frendly staff
Location to Darling Harbour We didn't get the coffee machine as advertised ???? no big deal.
We found it was ideally suited being so close to the CBD and the many attractions in that part of the city. No
The fantastic staff, who were very friendly and helpful. It was also great that I was allowed to check into my room really. I really appreciated it. The location of the hotel is also superb! I had trouble opening my door on several occasions. It often took several swipes of my card to access my room. I also was confused about the card required to access the fridge of food and drinks on my floor. The information I was given on check-in indicated that I had received one as a matter of course, but I did not get one and was worried about being charged $10 for losing something I never received.
Closeness to the public transport and to dining facilities No
i found the staff at the Mecure very polite and helpful. the room was clean and well maintained, and we had a wonderful stay. The hotel was centrally located and very convenient. nothing
Convenient location Bed uncomfortable
It was great being so close to the centre of Sydney. The staff were very helpfull and nothing was a problem.
The bed plus the espresso machine
Beds were comfortable. Good selection at breakfast - although breakfast room very crowded on occasions. Bathroom was rather basic. Fairly long walk into the centre of town (although fairly convenient for China Town restaurants)
Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. I found the room expensive for the night, though understand it is likely the high season and also a Saturday night. However, I have stayed in many hotels much nicer for less in Sydney and internationally.....no real complaints though. I would stay here again for sure if the rate was more reasonable.
Everything was clean and well kept. I didn't like that there was no complimentary wifi. I can understanding having caps to minimize streaming but it would be nice to have some basic browsing ability.
close to the airport. rooms were clean and comfortable the temperature controls did not seem to work in the room. the restaurant staff were difficult to communicate with in English. food was ok but not great - overpriced for the quality
The restaurant food was actually pretty good. I know it's a USA type of complaint but there was no ice and my room service request for it didn't arrive for more than an hour until I then called back and bought a can of soda pop, which arrived thirty minutes later.
Close to the airport Friendly staff Clean Good price Exercise room No restaurants near by other than the two owned by the hotel.
Good facilities, good restaurant, nicecasual bar, good bed, quiet rooms for airport Pillows - feather werent soft went really hard - need a choice
It was comfortable and clean and for the purpose of convenience, it was right at the airport. Found the breakfast buffet a little short of staff. An omelet we ordered, never did come and there seemed to be no one to ask about it around.
the hotel was great. No problems at all. the only issue is that the rooms were fairly small, but the hotel is in a big city, very close to the airport.
The location to Sydney Kingsford-Smith airport was very good. The lobby was well kept up and the bell service was quick to unload our bags and bring them to our room. The bathroom in our standard room was well designed, including stone/granite counter tops and new(er) showers and toilets. Room includes a mini-bar. The room was a bit dated (e.g. the lights and fixtures) and the carpet was a bit worn. The mini-bar is a bit expensive, but that's my own fault for using it! The only remaining gripe is that the airport shuttle is not free, it was $6 per person. Also the shuttle stops off at the domestic terminal first, before going to the international terminal, so factor that in when planning your arrival time to the airport.
Great staff. Clean well appointed room. Swimming pool andfitness room a bonus. Airport shuttle good. Restaurant food so so and over priced. Not many other food options.
Great facilities, good service, good location. Room smelt on cigaretes on ckeck in.
Pleasant room, quiet, helpful staff
Comfortable Room, Friendly Concierge/Front Desk Staff Fish n Chip prices too steep....$26.00 for two bits of fish and semi warm chips!
The staff were fantastic - very friendly without being stuffy from frontline to cleaning staff. Great location - right between central shopping & circular quay.
We had originally rented an apartment in Sydney. However, due to construction at night, we had to relocate. We found a great rate at the Raddisson Blu and booked it. We enjoyed the last few nights of our vacation in a beautiful and comfortable room. The hotel staff was very helpful and the hotel was spotless. We would definitely stay there again!
The staff were very courteous.
We asked to hotel concierge for the morning call at 5:30am, but we did not get any phone call from the hotel concierge. Ii is indeed disaponted. I hardly miss the international fight.
Lovely room and great location. Upgraded, but that cost $60 per night. Nothing really, although room service meal was fairly ordinary.
Stayed at the Radisson for one night on our way inbound from Canada to Melbourne. Lovely hotel, in the heart of the CBD. Close to the Harbour and ferries, the Opera House, slight trek to Darling Harbour but very central. Rooms were clean, modern and spacious. Also, took advantage of the breakfast buffet before or flight the next morning which was quite good but pricey $25per. The porters were exceptional, always attentive and helpful with the baggage. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Only a couple of hiccups, we arrived in the morning and even though check in was at 3pm they said we could check in at 1130am. When we went to pick up our room keys they kept putting us off with “ready in 5 minutes” until noon. Just tell us noon, we would have gone for a walk. While we were waiting in the lounge for our room there was some construction going on in the restaurant, didn’t make for the best of atmospheres.
friendly and helpful staff, good location
CLOSE PROXIMITY TO ALL MAIN ATTRACTIONS.
Service was excellent,staff very pleasant and helpful. Food was first class and reasonably priced. Nothing
Convenient location to city attractions. Breakfast prices were way too high. I paid $158 U.S. dollars and the breakfast prices were $18 to $26 US dollars. Overall I enjoyed my stay as the room was clean, quiet and comfortable.
Proximity to Central Quay Bland decor
bed is old, sags in middle. Room is old, needs a refurb. "Atrium" means no view at all.
the location in the heart of Sydney,with outstanding views and excellent service leaving !!
Location of hotel Hotel was overpriced. Hidden charges for using credit card. Would not chose this hotel again.
The room was comfortable, the staff polite and helpful. View from window was poor.
Very clean and excellent service Nothing
The breakfast is excellent & is a great location! It is expensive & nothing is free! A member of staff in the adjoining public house owned by the hotel suggested a MacDonalds meal when we were refused a evening meal within 5 minutes of last orders!
Nice view - handy location Small bathroom
The hotel is a construction site. Hotel not worthy of its rating. Four seasons and comparably located and priced hotels infinitely better. Beds uncomfortable, room not vacuumed
Clean, secure, excellent location and fantastic amenities. This hotel has it all! Rooms are in the process of being redesigned, we were woken up shortly after 8am on both mornings of our stay from hammering and drilling taking place on our floor or directly above. We certainly expected that we wouldn't have issues in sleeping in at such a high-end hotel.
Location, service, cleanliness Nothing
Booking was for three adults but only allowed two complement breakfast. A bit strange.
Great conceirge went out of his way to book a restaurant and get our names on a door list, good location very close to circular quay Very grumpy staff on check in counter, not too helpful and seemed a bit put out when we asked questions. Gym was ok quite old equipment and pool was inside and also old.
