“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

As you would expect for the money that you spend to stay here, the service is impeccable. The location is brilliant. We had a room with a harbour view, and as it was our first view of Australia, it had such an impact on us for the rest of our holiday. For me one of the highlights of the stay here was the bed, it was the most amazing bed I have ever slept on and after at 15 hour flight with no sleep, it was so welcome! We ate dinner at the woods restaurant and could not fault it in any way, the service was good, the food was amazing and when there was a mistake on our bill, it was corrected before we even had the chance to mention it. I have stayed in many hotels that class themselves as five star, but very few have the well trained staff that the four seasons have. Other hotels would really do well to find out about their training systems! I also used the treatment room whilst there and was so pleased with the service that I received as well as with the staff. I cannot fault the Four Seasons at all and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, go for the one with the harbour view, well worth it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I just stayed at the Four Seasons Syndey in January 2013 on a business trip. This is my second stay at this hotel, and while it is still very good it is beginning to show some age. The location is excellent for tourists, as it is right at Circular Quay in the Rocks, close enough to walk to the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. For business people doing meetings in the central business district it is a little bit off, but walkable in about 15 minutes. Service is great, and the morning breakfast buffet is very nice. Be sure to order delicious "flat white" coffee.

Unfortunately, the rooms are on the small side and could use a touch up. The air conditioning system in my room was not really working and made a ton of noise. The fitness center has old equipment in poor condition, with only 2 ellipticals (one of which was out of service). On one Monday morning the fitness center had no headseats. Another morning the water fridge was empty. Small things but noticeable, for a Four Seasons.

The rate was on the cheap side, especially compared to the Park Hyatt, which I hear is better but I have not yet tried it.

I am not an expert on Sydney. I have only been here a few times (for work), but I think the Four Season will be my home there for now on. I liked the location, the views, and the atmosphere of the surrounding area. The staff is also terrific -- including their in-hotel and outside dinner suggestions as all were spot on!

Room Tip: I had a high floor, and it was nice.

We stayed in a beautiful suite with amazing views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge (particularly appreciated during our delicious room service breakfast) and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and very festive Christmas Day lunch. We would like to express our appreciation not only for the beautiful food and accompanying wines but also for the wonderful surroundings of The Grain Bar and The Woods restaurant and the warm, knowledgeable and attentive service we received from all of the staff. The Four Seasons 'experience' was a highlight of our holiday and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Corner suite with a beautiful view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

What a grand and beautiful hotel this is, which also delivers impeccable service. It has large hotel rooms overlooking the Harbour bridge and downtown George Street which are spectacular at night, would highly recommend staying their if you have the budget.

Room Tip: Spend abit more money on upgrading your room and it will be well worth it.

The Four Seasons Hotel Sydney was in the best location and we had a room that had views of both the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The room was quite small, but the view made up for it.

Getting a taxi was made easy as they had their own taxi rank and all staff were always willing to help.

Everything was perfect. But the restaurant didn't have various dinner menu, especially for asians. So the restaurant was always not busy, even saturday dinner. That fact was unfortunate to perfect four seasons sydney.
