“All you need in Syd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I almost always travel for business, so I've become more and more demanding in terms of hotel accomodation, services'quality and strategic locations.
Radisson Plaza Sydney has all of these.
Hosted in former Sydney Morning Herald's Hq building, it is downtown Sydney but still easy to reach by car or by public transport; it's in the hearth of the city, so close to any kind of restaurant and bar, 5 mins walk from circular quay and 10-15 mins walk from Darling Harbour. Staff -from concierge to reception, housekeeping to barmen- is absolutely helpful and skilled. As an Italian, I can not forget to thank ms Elena at BistroFax Bar, for her helpfulness, kindness and competence. I think if I felt at home at Radisson Plaza Syd, it is also thanks to her.
I'll definitely come here next time I'll be in Aussie.

This hotel is in a handy location for both the city centre and the harbour area. It is a heritage building and certain elements of it have an Art Deco feel.
The dining area is split into several small zones which enables the hotel to offer good seating capacity whilst retaining a degree of intimacy. Our buffet breakfast was well laid out on a lower level to the main floor and had a good mix of tasty food. On our first morning we were given a short briefing so that we knew where everything was - why can't more hotels do this?
There is a large lounge with comfy seats and low level tables adjacent to the bar area.
Our room was quite spacious with comfy bed and marble bathroom and was fitted out with dark wood furniture. The only thing lacking was electrical sockets - just one spare double for the whole room.
Throughout our stay staff were friendly and helpful making this a really good base to explore Sydney.

Stayed here for a weekend in November. Rooms well appointed. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom very clean and large bath. Rooms gave very high ceilings and give a very spacious feel. Service good. Bar in the hotel has very good service and nice surrounds. Close proximity to everything. There are numerous cafes ans bars close by. Ten minute walk to the Opera House. Would stay here again

2nd wedding anniversary and secret trip planned to Sydney. Having learnt a few lessons from last time, I made sure we had breakfast booked in the restaurant downstairs....wow!! Awesome food and the chefs cook fresh to order. No responsibility of the hotel, but seeing another guest sneeze all over the fruit was very offputting.
The room was brilliant! Lovely comfortable bed, big shower (lucky me) and a great view. The maids were always really helpful with some great suggestions of what to see.
The one surprise that I got from my Brenda is that she booked the two of us in for massages in the Health Spa. A great masseur, Mohammad (apologies if I've spelt it incorrectly) was so good that all the aches and pain I regularly endure, disappeared for a few hours.
I can't recommend highly enough, staying here. I would offer one piece of advice, the upgrade to a balcony room isn't the best use of your money, save it for the restaurant, Bistro Fax :)

Room Tip: Don't bother upgrading to a balcony, it is too small to sit on and honestly, how often do you lo...

me and my partner enjoyed a very nice and reloaxing 3 nights at Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Sydney, great service, excellent room layout, very modern and stylish, huge beds! which were amazingly comfy, especially after backpacking for 3months.

Great room service, and buffet breakfast with a huge selection to choose from, abit pricey, but worth it.
