The staff were lovely and extremely helpful, the rooms were well maintained and clean. The pool area was nice and well looked after. I had an excellent experience and will definitely stay again next time I'm in Sydney.

My partner and I enjoyed an amazing stay at the Menzies. Right from when we began the lobby set the tone with its beautiful old world charm. The staff were lovely and welcoming and we were treated to a room upgrade which was an unexpected and very welcome bonus. The suite we stayed in was lovely and spacious and the... More

Stayed here for work. It looks like from other reviews that there are some other more "modern" rooms, but I was on level 14 and it was pretty shabby. The air conditioning sounded like a plane taking off, and it wasn't for my earplugs I would not have slept a wink. There is no thermostat in the room. I rang... More

The Menzies Sydney opened as Sydney’s premier hotel in 1963; therefore it is one of the most historic buildings in the CBD. Some aspects of this building’s heritage can still be seen in the hotel today, however we try to update areas where necessary. Despite the hotel’s... More

Stayed for one night on 17 July 2015. I was allocated a corner room on 10th floor of the hotel, with a street view of "Australia Square". This may have been a room upgrade because of my Accor Advantage Plus membership. Some of the rooms at the back of the hotel appear to look at the brick walls of other... More

I stayed at the Menzies for 2 weeks when I was in Sydney for a business trip. The hotel was conveniently located across the street from Martin Place where I worked, and was a 15 minute walk away from Circular Quay and the attractions around it. Wynyard station is opposite the hotel entrance and you can catch trains to the... More
