The location was fantastic. Kirribilli is an awesome, quiet little neighborhood within minutes of the bustling Central Business District. The bed and pillows were a bit hard for my taste.
When I picked this place online I knew that the bathrooms were down the hall, so I was OK with that. What I did not know was that there is no air conditioning and it was in the high 90s when I was there in February. It was miserably hot. There is also no elevator, and the place is just a dump: squeaky, bumpy floors, ratty carpet, my window would not stay open unless I propped it open with a piece of wood. Also, the cleaning was questionable. In the corner of my room was an empty bottle of hand lotion and someone elses sock. Internet access is $*per day, or something like $* for an hour. On the plus side, the breakfast is not bad, though rather disorganized, the price is good, and the location is convenient -- about half a block from a ferry terminal which will get you to Circular Quay, where all the action is, in about 10 minutes. If you are going at a time when it is not so hot and you are prepared for the general grunginess, it might be OK for you. They have a wide variety of rooms at different prices, from small economy rooms with bunk beds up to ones like mine, a 'queen deluxe' which had a small balcony which enabled a cross-breeze. The staff was limited but nice.
We liked its proximity to shopping and eateries in Darling Harbour
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.
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.
Great room, with excellent view on Darling Harbour, and a spacious balcony. Very good value for money.
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 and modern facilities. Homely feel
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.
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, friendly staff and clean building Wifi should be free for hotel guests
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.
Easygoing and very comfortable. Couldn't sleep longer had to catch a flight.
This is the most convenient hotel I have ever stayed at in my entire life. I took a train from Sydney, got out at the International Flights stop, went up the escalator, and walked across the street to my hotel. In the morning, I walked out of the hotel door, crossed the street and there was the United ticket counter. I could see it from my hotel window. Clean, comfortable, nice front desk staff, nice staff in the upstairs restaurant. When I went to sit in the downstairs sportsbar, the bartender told me to just sit anywhere, but then no one ever came to help me (although the waiter was helping everyone else.) I don't know if this was a miscommunication or if they were understaffed, but I finally gave up and waited for the upstairs restaurant to open. This was a pretty minor problem, given how much I appreciated this hotel!
We're on a 45 country round the world honeymoon. This hotel was country #35 and the beds were sublime... so much so that it's worth talking about here. One desk service young woman gave me a free candy bar to bring me back to life after 2 days of no sleep on airplanes and guess what... she created a loyal customer for life. We are from New York and we approve this hotel fr your sydney travel!
Location The lighting was simply awful. There wasn't one area that was adequate. It was impossible to see to put makeup on. Besides that a bulb was burned out in one of the lights on the desk. This situation is totally unacceptable. The drain was clogged so water flooded the floor. I had to use towels to mop it up.
Location to International terminal Clean and Modern Good Value Nothing
Short walk from International departures area. Can't beat the location! Quiet rooms, modern and clean.
Everything. Coffee shop, sports bar and restaurant. Great staff. Quiet, safe and glory be - late checkout. Nothing
That I called the day before and told them I could not make it and they gave no refund of any sort . Very disappointed in the feedback and lack,of customer focus . Will not stay at this group ever .
View of the airport. Proximity to the airport. Very clean, nice hotel. Good complimentary breakfast. Regret didn't know there was an airplane viewing area.
Location to the airport is excellent - you just walk across the street. Rooms are clean and quiet. Location is very far away from where the action is, but it did not matter too much to us, since we were heading right out the next day. No one at the front desk could give us the correct information about what bus we should take, as the trains were down that day. We were told to take the "train bus" which no one had ever heard of. We waited 45 minutes for the bus that never came.
Location tough to beat for overnight travellers. Shuttle drops you off and walk out the door and across street to international terminal. Popped downstairs to bat for quick bite, some of the food typical pub good but had the curry and must say it was outstanding (and I'm a foodie). Staff behind bar a little aloof but they did their job. I'm Canadian so maybe we are just a little more chatty lol. Anyways place was clean, bed was great and all in all great bang for the buck. Would definitely rebook if I was flying through Sydney again. Thumbs up.
I felt like a king. Cared for in the large well-appointed rooms. Our dinner in the restaurant was outstanding. And at a discount because of membership in the GHA hotel group. The hotel could not have been closer to the international air terminal without being in the airport itself.
Breakfast buffet was sumptuous.
professional staff and attention to detail and cleanliness
Good location Price -- they are "luxury" in price only Also they lie about the construction that goes on there -- they DO work early in the morning before stated repair hours
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
Separate tub and shower. Separate beds available and view. Ease and immediacy of taxis. Free wifi
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.
Excellent central location, walkable to harbour and train station and monorail close by. 14 dollar by train to airport
Central location difficult for car unloading in market street and small street lobby
Clan/tidy room Reception staff not particularly friendly
We enjoyed Sidney for WYD 2008 No. It was very comfortable.
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.
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.
location was great, the room was beautiful, friendly staff
perfect, with a first class concierge service
Proximity to The Rocks, Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Hyde Park, Railway Stations, Darling Harbour, Cafes, Supermarket. Excellent service from great staff!
room, the staff, and the location were all great nothing
Very good, spacious bathrooms with a separate shower. Overall, hotels in Sydney are quite expensive.
Spacious room Delivery charges for room services
Air conditing not working properly - still not cool after asking for attendance to problem Also - had to ask to have room floor cleaned
The hotel was within a reasonably short walk to the harbor bridge, yet also within walking distance of other attractions (like Chinatown which was a great place to visit during the Chinese new year festivities). In particular, the staff was very helpful. The concierge made a great recommendation for a hole in the wall (Chat Thai) and one of the women at the front desk went out of her way to help me plan things to do over my 3 day stay. I really appreciate that they took the time for me. The room was also nice (but it was the most expensive room I booked during my stay in Australia). My recommendation is to do your research and most importantly book early. After I booked I saw room prices skyrocket as I got closer to my travel dates, but that might have been unusual due to it being the Chinese New Year, or maybe there was some other event that took up all the rooms. I wouldn't have been willing to pay as much the room went up to but ~$250 was doable. Flights into Sydney from abroad must all arrive in the early morning. Every day there seemed to be a number of people waiting in the lobby as their rooms weren't ready yet. I understand hotels can't check people in too early, but it would have been great had the hotel been able to get me in before lunch. Instead I found myself roaming the city by foot for a good while.
The food at the hotel is rather expensive....eat out, it's cheaper.
Location is good Staff was not very friendly
Its location to the event I was attending, would be a great flocation for tourists
Quiet, modern, good eating options, central, spacious bathroom
Hotel staff were very helpful with any personal requests Everything came at a cost including the drinking water
Amazing way to start the day with amazing breakfast buffet. Giovani is our favorite... Always helping and welcoming. A hard worker with excellent attention to detail The laundry staff needed prodding several times. There were never enough towels in our room and despite several kind notes to remind them, they were ignored. The dining room at dinner should be ignored, as staff was clueless for dinner... But that was transformed for breakfast, which was a highlight.
that we got up-graded and the buffet breakfast was so delicious
TV in the shower! Nothing
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
Good customer service. Slightly long check in time.
Outstanding and polite service; rooms were serviced as we indicated a desire with the appropriate "light" and excellent Executive lounge!
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
Great location, some staffs were very nice and helpful During my last day I called for Bell to pick up my belongings but I waited 15mins and no one turn up so I end up carried them down myself.
The spa was out of order for our last day
It was my wife's 60th birthday and the little extra touches they did made the stay all the better. Great Hotel.
The courtesy of staff and its location The rooms are quite small and the drains in the showers don't work well
Gym and Executive floor accessorites Nothing
Staff were helpful and friendly. The pool was well-maintained. It's a really convenient location to shopping and food. Nothing really
Extra attention. They need to replace the little ottoman in the room with a 2nd chair. The king size pillows are too long and too heavy.
Ideal location for visiting Sydney sites and restaurants. Helpful staff.
Location, service and ammenities were great. Staff was very welcoming Facade could use an update but the inside is very nice
Room very clean and comfortable My second reception experience - arrived early and room not ready. Very helpful chap checked me in, checking photo ID and giving me spa key so I could freshen up after long flight. Promised a text when room ready and promised this would be within 2 hours. Returned from run to see if room ready having not received text in spite of two and a half hours having elapsed. Female receptionist insisting in seeing ID again which seemed utterly superfluous to requirements. When asked why I hadn't received a text she said that the "room has just this moment become ready". Amazing coincidence. ended up being late for an appointment because she was so reluctant to relinquish the key without me having to go and find my photo ID even though it was obvious I had already checked in and knew all the details.
Simply everything. The hotel is a stones throw away from Circular Quay, and is in walking distance to the iconic Sydney Opera House. There are lots of awesome shopping venues all around; with food galore and convenience stores to choose from. There are several tours that have starting points only steps away; including ferry tours and dinner tours. I highly recommend the harbour view rooms. The view is breathtakingly beautiful. You really can't go wrong with this hotel. Absolutely nothing not to like.
Beautiful room, comfortable bed, great fitness center. Location was exactly what I wanted and needed for a couple of days in Sydney...close to everything! Felt safe, and was treated wonderfully by all staff. I REALLY have an issue with the use of so many plastic water bottles. It is nice to have them in the room for many, I know...and to have them to carry around, as well. But...in the gym? C'mon. Use a filtered water system, or at least have one available so that when you run out of your own water, you can refill it without having to use yet another plastic water bottle. For the cost of the bottles and the disposal, reusable ones could probably be provided to every guest.
Bellmen were good, pillows Received worst room imagined. Low floor, dirty windows, bad views, receptionist lied about restaurant open at 10PM, Burger cost $30 plus tip, water in room was $10, room was expensive at about $300/night, no loyalty program with airlines except Qantas, shower was open with no door, no microwave, no real conveniences, small room.
Friendly and helpful staff. Great location, 10 minute walk to the opera house. You can see the harbour bridge from the hotel street. They have FREE money exchange (US dollar to AD dollar). Super convenient.
The front desk staff sent us a complimentary bottle of champagne to put room because we were celebrating our honeymoon. They even included a very nice personalive card, too!
Location, not too expensive for a 5 star, good restaurant and breakfast buffet. The sheets were too heavy I found, I struggled to get comfortable.
Everything, especially the concierge service. I think the hotel should make wifi more easily available.
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
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 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.
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.
friendliness, comfort,location price
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 concierge was excellent. Gym is small
Room comfit and cleanliness. Proximity to tourist sights and transport.
The location is perfect. We did not have access to the upper terrace with a view.
Beautiful ambiance in historical building, great food and particulrly enjoyed breakfast.
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
Staff very helpful No pool. No bath. Found an old shoe under the bed. Not so clean.
Free upgrade at check in to a room with a harbor view None
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.
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.
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.
Close to the airport Friendly staff Clean Good price Exercise room No restaurants near by other than the two owned by the hotel.
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
Pleasant room, quiet, helpful staff
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.
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 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.
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 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.
Great facilities, good service, good location. Room smelt on cigaretes on ckeck in.
Good facilities, good restaurant, nicecasual bar, good bed, quiet rooms for airport Pillows - feather werent soft went really hard - need a choice
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.
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.
Location to Darling Harbour We didn't get the coffee machine as advertised ???? no big deal.
The bed plus the espresso machine
Convenient location Bed uncomfortable
Great hotel , Very frendly staff
Closeness to the public transport and to dining facilities No
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.
Super helpful staff and great central location. WiFi was only 30 minutes free a day per room.
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.
We found it was ideally suited being so close to the CBD and the many attractions in that part of the city. No
It was great being so close to the centre of Sydney. The staff were very helpfull and nothing was a problem.
Service was excellent,staff very pleasant and helpful. Food was first class and reasonably priced. Nothing
bed is old, sags in middle. Room is old, needs a refurb. "Atrium" means no view at all.
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!
CLOSE PROXIMITY TO ALL MAIN ATTRACTIONS.
friendly and helpful staff, good location
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.
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
Lovely room and great location. Upgraded, but that cost $60 per night. Nothing really, although room service meal was fairly ordinary.
The staff were fantastic - very friendly without being stuffy from frontline to cleaning staff. Great location - right between central shopping & circular quay.
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.
Very clean and excellent service Nothing
Location Restaurant hours, elevators, concierge
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 and service was stellar
Fabulous location Amazing staff Unbelievably GREAT views Close to everything including public transportation Rooms not cleaned every day
Location was great; central to both business and the local sites. Great restaurants close by. The housekeeping staff was also exceptional; you barely heard them in the morning when they started their cleaning. No loud talking in the hallways. If I had to be picky, it would have been nice, esp in such a hot climate, to have at least two bottle of waters offered without cost.
Location of hotel Hotel was overpriced. Hidden charges for using credit card. Would not chose this hotel again.
Was easy to walk to the sights in the area - Opera House, Sydney Bridge, the Harbor, places to eat "City view" really means a view of another bldg.
This was a great location in Sydney....easy check in, great staff. We had access to the Concierge Lounge which was honestly one of the nicest of any Marriott Hotel I have stayed in. The gym was excellent and quite large. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Location, service, cleanliness Nothing
Right in the heart of Circular Quay. Walking distance to Opera House and plenty of restaurants. It was under construction while we were there. Was not made aware of the extent of the construction. Elevators were slow and aggravating. Was there a week and never got to know any of the staff.
