Have stayed here previously and always found this property to be clean, comfortable and convenient. But I will point out that I still have not been credited with my points yet, how long should I wait???

I thought I had booked myself and business colleague into the other Novatel Darling Harbour hotel. Rocked up to this hotel first and was re-directed to the Rockford. Found the Rockford a pleasant surprise, being smaller, quieter and friendly, efficent reception staff. We arrived just after the Martin Place siege had begun, so the Hotel was actually in lock-down, with... More

The central location of the hotel is definitely one of the benefits, as it only a few minutes walk to Paddy's market, a short stroll to Darling Harbour, as well as a less than 10 minute walk to...

We were offered valet parking straight away and baggage storage till our room was ready which we took. This hotel is central to a... More

I had an enjoyable stay at this hotel, without any issues. As a Le-Club Platinum member I received a special treatment and a loyalty pack. The hotel management was trying to be above and beyond. Room ok, fully functional, with nice super-king bed, correctly working air-conditioning, although bathroom a little tired, but not nothing too outrageous. Good quality bathroom toiletries.... More
