Overall pretty good. Staff pleasant. Location is really convenient for access to Haymarket theatres, Chinatown and Darling Quarter/Harbour. Little issues caused hiccups though. E.g. I booked two rooms online, clearly giving the correct details for two rooms under two different names. But my Inlaws were refused access to their room as I was not there... - even after they produced... More

The hotel is close to Darling Harbour but far enough away to have some peace and quiet. The rooms are large enough and the bedding is very comfortable. The breakfast that was included was average but generous and welcome. The staff were very pleasant and professional. Wifi was extra which is disappointing in this day and age.

Booked an overnighter on a Friday night. Room was nicely presented and had room for a portacot. Great views. Breakfast was quite nice and a reasonable price. The staff there were obviously under the pump and undermanned. On arrival, it took 40 mins to get our bags delivered. On checkout, it took an hour to get my bags sent down... More

We booked this as a mystery deal with Scoupon to sneak away from our kids for our wedding anniversary. Once we knew the name of the hotel we of course scoured trip advisor for reviews, I was a little nervous after reading but now after staying I feel the need to defend this fantastic hotel! After suffering the joys of... More

We arrived at 7.40am & went to front desk to get directs to car park but was totally blown away when the girl told us that she would see if our room was available. She informed us it... More

W stayed for 6 nights over Easter with the room rate varying between $90 and $279 for Easter Saturday itself. We wanted to be within walking distance of circular Quay and The Rocks which was probably around 25 min walk down George Street which was fine. With Darling Harbour on the doorstep there were plenty of places to eat and... More
