I walked into the suite the blinds opened to reveal Sydney Harbour was amazing. The remote control turned everything on or off even opened the blinds. 4 rooms... More

What a truly fabulous hotel – I can not recommend our stay highly enough. After checking in we decided to head down to the food court within the Star to enjoy the legendary dumplings at Din Tai Fung, but there are so many options within the food court which mind you is not your run of the mill food court,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Darling for our anniversary and had the most amazing night. We booked the Jewel Spa Suite and upon entering the room had all our expectations exceeded.

The size of the suite was bigger than our apartment and the interior design was just gorgeous. Having stayed in some fabulous hotels I can often be nonplussed but I was overjoyed with the room we had. The comfort offered by the beautiful oversized chair, the luxury of the giant bath tub, the feeling of sitting on a cloud in... More

Most hotels in Sydney never remember your name - these guys do. At first I thought it might just be a one off but it isn't. If you don't sleep well on hotels because of noise I would recommend the Darling as its really quiet. Room facilities and room service are quality. Hotel is across Pyrmont bridge from the CBD...
