“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2006

We stayed 3 nights at the Hilton and were impressed. We stay in Hiltons quite a lot (for business), and this one is a cut above the rest.

The recent renovations have really pad off - the hotel looks fantastic - very cool and modern. We were there during the MTV awards and apparently Snoop Dog and Jessica Simpson were also staying there. Sure, we didn't actually see them, but the rumour of the hidden stars added to the urban, trendy atmosphere.

Would definitely recommend it to others (if you're not on a budget that is!)

Pure Class is what defines this superbly rebuilt Hotel. It is obvious that the a great deal of thought and planning went into this property when you first walk into your room. The rooms are extremely well appointed and space maximised. The decor is striking and there exists a good mix of modern colours with natural wood.
Being a very frequent traveller (predominantly for business but also for leisure) I am very particular about where I stay. I can safely say that the beds and pillows at the Sydney Hilton are second to none.
Another defining point is the "magic" call button on your phone. There is no need for you to figure out which extension to dial for any of your in-room requests - one button and they're at your service. That alone is enough for me to be impressed however the Hotel is the complete package; with the Glass Restaurant and distinctly different bar choices (be sure to check out the Marble Bar in the basement).
Lastly, the location is spot on - basically close to absolutely everything that you need to see in Sydney!

We visited the Hilton hotel in Sydney last year and we still have fond memories of the trip. we have visited many sydney CBD hotels and this has come out top since it was refurbished. We had beenwatching the building of the tall hotel on our frequent trips to sydney in the months before and kept saying how we would like to stay when it opens. so i organised a weekend away and upgraded the room package to one with a large plasma tv and big spa bath- and it was well worth it - it was the little touches that counted. all the staff were friendly and helpful- even when there was a staff member in the lift with me she said hello and asked how my day was in a nonobtrusive way. we didnt explore many of the facilities out of the room except for the wine bar and had some canapes there which were very enjoyable. we also used room service3 when we came back late from a show and were impressed with the soup and club sandwich which arrived on a heated trolley with white table linen etc. the breakfast was fabulous- if you wanted something you could probably find it on the display there in the buffet- all types of egg were freshly cooked there wase ven one member of staff to make up frash juicesof any combination...
we would highly recommend this hotel and it's location is so central it is very usefuland it is great seeing the QVB building lit up at night...

The revamped Sydney Hilton shows the class Hilton can exude. While the rooms are fairly small (bathrooms even smaller) they are extremely well appointed. Great choice of bars from the quiet and relaxing Glass bar to the thumping Zeta Bar. Excellent restaurant. if you love wine, the Glass Restaurant caters for every conceivable taste. One HUGE wall of wines. Breakfast had a great choice and was well presented and tasty. NO canned beans and powdered eggs and decent coffe. Staff attitude is absolutely first class. we had a really relaxing weekend.

One of the best. I like new, modern hotels and this one is just great. The room is somewhat small, but not bothersome, and very nicely appointed. A separate shower stall is great. The executive lounge is the best I've been to, with a full breakfast spread and great cocktail hour. Location is very convenient, we've walked to most museums and warfs, and both monorail and subway are less than one block away.
