We've stayed here previously and would stay here again, however, I think we were spoilt with brilliant service the first time! Great location. Our room was slightly smaller this time, however, the room was lovely and we had an enjoyable stay. A few smiles at the reception would probably have made us feel a little more welcome.

The hotel is in an excellent location, very close to circular quay and George street, 50 m walk to wynyard train station that offers you a great direct connexion to/from the airport. Possibility of discounted rates through its own web /Expedia, having paid a bit less than 200 Aud / night, pretty difficult for a 5 star in Sydney. Rooms... More

I recently requested a change of where I am to stay when I travel to Sydney on business. Radisson was always the second option. This will no longer be the case, I was greeted with warm hospitality, I was spoken to about my day, I was then upgraded to a suite which was AMAZING. The room was large, bright and... More

You may think the service provided by the wonderful staff starts with the warm greeting as you arrive. However, for my party of 6, it started months ago with the fantastic reservation team headed by Alie. Nothing was too much trouble from the first email to our arrival, including a sad change of plan forced about by illness. The staff... More

Stayed here by visiting Secret Hotels. Then when I got there, they 'bribed' me and gave me a room upgrade. (I never quite know how all that works.) The hotel is very quiet and very clean and well kept. Not sure when it was last furbished, but it is in excellent condition. The location is very good, being central to... More

I absolutely loved staying at this hotel! Without a doubt some of the nicest staff I've encountered and in a truly fantastic location, only a 5 minute walk from the ferry building and downtown shopping. Rooms are spacious, beds are good and shower has power. Would most definitely stay here again!

The staff here is very warm and friendly and provide great service. The bellhop greeted us every morning and evening with a smile. The hotel itself is a bit older and its age is shown in the occasional scuffs and stains found in our room. However, overall our space was very clean and comfortable. The pool area is great and...

On finding that the usual hotel where I usually stay was full for the days of my visit to Sydney, it was recommended that I try the Radisson Blu. I was pleasantly surprised.

The hotel is located in a great spot! Easy to get to and from various places. We spent 1 night here as a surprise from our parents which added to the overall great experience. Rooms are a decent size and kept very clean. Check-in staff are notably pleasant and friendly. Overall a great stay.
