“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Great location with good views in any direction.
Very convenient for entry and exit from the city being very close to the Harbour Bridge.
Nice tidy rooms although the standard rooms are quite small, but all have a desk and chair etc
Soaps are good.

Room Tip: Harbour views are best but City views are OK. Harbour views costs more but not worth it in my opinio...

We celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary at the Four Seasons Sydney. Staying in town for a romantic night out on special occasion we thought to indulge ourselves in one of the best hotel in Sydney.

We were sure to notify the hotel that we were celebrating our anniversary (when you do this well in advance sometime you get a special treat). On this occasion the hotel sent my wife a red rose and upon check-in, they sent us a bottle of sparking wine.

We choose to stay at level 34 suite room with city view (cheaper option compared to harbor view) - which still had a great view overlooking the eastern part of Sydney. Being in level 34 has the advantage of having the club lounge access (more on that later).

The room was well furnished, and had a warm welcoming ambiance. Equipped with an ensuite bathroom and an additional toilet in the living area makes a great room for entertaining guests; but in our case, we were able to enjoy chocolate-dipped strawberries on the sofa without worrying to drip chocolates all over the bed.

Along with the standard minibar & a selection of tea bags, the suite room is also equipped with Vittoria Adesso expresso machine with complementary coffee pods. So if you are in a hurry but still need a shot of good coffee, you will not be left wanting!

Appelles apothecary supplies the amenities throughout the hotel. The willow bark body wash had an impressive feel and a great scent. The bathroom was very spacious, especially the shower, which had a good size shower seat.

The bed room was also spacious; the king bed was extremely comfortable, and I must say that all Four Seasons pillows have not once disappoint me (of course bed and pillows are for sale at the ease of a telephone call - lol)

We spent the early part of the evening at the club lounge - taking advantage of the canapés and drinks (open bar on Friday & Saturday nights). A bar tender is also available to make your cocktail of choice. The selection of hot or cold canapés & desert was amazing - a great spot to chill and enjoy the view of the harbor.

The next morning we again had breakfast at the club lounge, a chef was available to prep your eggs, and a selection of continental or full breakfast was available at your leisure.

Overall, we had an excellent wedding anniversary and the staff at the Four Seasons made a great contribution to making it a memorable visit.

Room Tip: Upgrade to club level rooms on level 31-34 for club lounge access, treat yourselves for a pre-dinner...

What can I say, they lived up to their reputation. We had booked a "partial bay view" and what a surprise when our partial view included a FULL view of the Sydney Opera House. The service was definitely what we had hoped for.
The staff at the concierge desk was helpful in many ways. They made last minute dinner and daytrip reservations for us and everything went exceedingly well.
The Grain Bar has some great Sydney Rock oysters. Delicious! Look for specials.
Thank-you to the Hotel for making our 25th wedding anniversary trip very special.

Room Tip: We were quite pleased with the "partial view" room.

Few words excite a traveler like "you have received a complimentary upgrade", unless that upgrade puts you in a room next to an elevator. Here is the good of the Four Seasons, location as it is convenient to almost everything in Sydney. Here is the bad, along with a gorgeous view of the Opera House you are treated to the continuos serenade of the trains honking as they enter the elevated station. If you like a 4:30 am wake up call this is the hotel for you and no I am not kidding or exaggerating. The deluxe room is decent in size and the bathroom is functional so no complaints with that part of the stay. However, the train is a killer for this hotel. My recommendation is to stay at the Intercontinental, similar location and no train. Last comment, if you are going to charge 46 dollars for breakfast at least give me fresh squeezed orange juice.

Room Tip: Do not accept a room ending in 01 or 12

This was a last minute business trip to Sydney and the Four Seasons was recommended by my Airline. It was mid priced for a Sydney 5 Star Hotel and I was given a harbour view room on the 14th Floor. Check in was friendly and efficient, the room was very clean with all the expected options including a stunning view of Sydney Harbour out to the Opera House and Bridge. The highlight was in two parts, first the position, right next to Circular Quay and an easy walk to the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney's CBD. The Hotel has a great bar called Grain which specializes in Spirits (very good Single Malt selection) but still had a Champagne and Oysters special the night I arrived. Their in-house restaurant named Woods is very good and their wine list is a treat!

Room Tip: If you're looking for the views ask for upper floors Harbour View. If not the rates for the room...

The room was falling apart, doors fell off the dresser and the carpet was not clean. Service was below average. The location was wonderful, and that is what we paid for. Had to go to a special room to use wi fi and pay for it.

Dear 993Luvtomove,

Thank you for your review after your stay with us in December 2013. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused during your stay with us, however, I trust this was well looked after by our staff. Since your stay, we have conducted a significant room upgrade program, which means all rooms are checked by our Engineering team for any flaws.

We hope, should you be returning to Sydney, you will give us an opportunity to create a memorable stay for you.

Kind regards,
David Macklin
Hotel Manager

This hotel has a perfect location near circular quay and the Rocks. The view from our 24th floor full harbor view room was spectacular . The staff were very helpful and worked hard to make us comfortable. The noble downside was a restaurant with a "sophisticated" menu that was pathetic and did not offer any standard international type fare. As a result the restaurant was empty but the bar was lively and has good menu selections. Also room service with a table in front of our picture window view of the harbor was an excellent alternative.

Room Tip: Get a harbor view if your budget can take. The view made our stay.
