“Great hotel in a great location !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This hotel is not only ideally placed for the opera house, the parks, the best shops, some great restaurants and the ferries to other parts of Sydney it also has great facilities and on our two stays there provided excellent customer service too. The general areas are beautifully designed and the bedrooms are spacious and stylish. In addition, the gym is very well equiped with weights and cardio vascular machines. We didn't use the pool, but that looked pretty good too.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again on my next trip to Sydney.

Room Tip: Unless you want a direct view of the park, the city side rooms are well lit and are cheaper.

Just spent 3 wonderfull nights in Sydney. Decided to spoil ourselves at this wonderful hotel. The room was huge with a separate bathroom that had a walk in shower that could accomodate 5 with comfort. Although it was expensive it was worth ever penny. The food was perfect and the service from all departments is exceptional.
The hotel overlooks Hyde Park and is in walking distance of all the major sights including the bridge, the opera house and darling harbour from where you can take a ferry over to Mannly which is well worth the time. All in all a great place to stay if you are ever in Sydney.

Room Tip: To really push the boat out choose a suit, this will give you great views over the park and the harh...

We are a professional gay couple and stayed in this hotel to entertain guests at the Ivy in Sydney. We stayed for a week in Room 1531, having paid $69 per night to upgrade to a room at the front with a view of Hyde Park.

The bed was super-comfortable and I slept exceptionally well – always a useful litmus test for a good hotel.

However, my stay was over-shadowed by the way the staff handled an incident where I became locked out of my room. First the staff clerk (Christian) offered to escort me to my room and question me about the contents to verify who I am. When I pointed out how pathetic this was in a contemporary city hotel, he brought Mr Stanton out (a FOH manager). Mr Stanton refused to let me in my hotel room unless I gave my partner’s phone number to him. After much visible arguing at the front desk, which other guests watched with interest, I did so. Mr Stanton made a call to my partner (and disturbed him at a client function), using a number I had given to him, and then let me in my room.

This was a stupid solution – if I had been a fraudster I could have easily gained access to the room by giving him the number of a fellow fraudster holding our personal details.

Mr Stanton had an attitude problem in my view, which is inappropriate in the catering/hotel profession. When I pointed out to him that as a lawyer I know all about client relations, Mr Stanton laughed out loud to show his disregard for my profession. He appeared to find my complaint to be an amusing contest of wills.

I would probably stay here again but I would never trust anyone other than the hotel General Manager to deal with any incidents. I would not bother to pay extra for a Park View either. As an aside, the hotel pool area is small and crowded, and needs modernisation.

Room Tip: Park view rooms are $69 per night extra - I took one and regretted it - don't bother as you can...

This is centrally located hotel - 15 minute walk to Rocks , 10 min walk to Darling Harbour & 15 min walk to Central Station. Monorail station, Railway station , Hop on hop off bus stop all are in 2 minutes walking distance. This hotel is facing Hyde Park - nice morning walk. Suit was huge with Living room & bed room with large bathroom. Club Lounge had nice views & had ample varietes of food during breakast & also in evening. Service standard was professional & prompt. Special mention of Mr Jesse at Conceirge Who was very helpful.Overall a pleasant experience .
We had amazing time in Darling harbour - on weekend there is Firework around 9 pm.

Room Tip: Look for room on high floor with Hyde Park views.

We had 3 nights in Sydney, and couldn't have been happier with our room at the Sheraton. First off, location is tremendous. We took the air tram in from the airport, exited the St James station, and viola, across the street just a short walk was the hotel. It's central to everything, and was very easy for us to walk to Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Ferry terminals, the Rocks etc.. The bus picks up right in front to go to Bondi too. Room was HUGE by my NYC standards with all the little comforts expected. Bed was cozy comfortable, I wanted to take it home. Bathroom beautiful and clean. Upstairs gym, pool and spa were much bigger than i expected. In room Wifi available if needed, but the lobby Wifi is good enough, just ask concierge for passcode. We didn't eat any meals in the hotel, but when they advise to go to the Westfield shopping mall food court, I really suggest you take a look. That food court is amazing, with plenty gourmet options as well as your typical McDonalds and Subway. For the price we paid, we both felt this Sheraton exceeded expectations.

My two little girls and I stayed here the other night. The staff were very helpful, friendly, professional and nothing was a problem. We had booked for city view room but we were given one at the front with views of the park. We were able to check-in early and able to leave our car late the next day. Room was huge for a Sydney hotel with a comfy bed and luxurious bathroom. Movies at $35 a day were a bit pricey but I'd brought movies on the laptop for the girls anyway. The pool had a fantastic view (on the 22nd floor) and the staff at the spa front desk were friendly and helpful too. The buffet breakfast was amazing. The location is perfect - it's lovely exiting the hotel onto the park views. Was very impressed with whole thing. Would definitely stay again and would choose Sheraton over other hotels. (Have stayed in Boulevard, Raddison Blu, Observatory in Sydney and would choose this one over all of them)

Size does matter - one of my top priority is space.
This hotel has decent size rooms - king bed, good size desk, L-shape sofa, oh and a walk-in wardrobe.
The bathroom was awesome - full-size bathtub, large shower inclosure, plus enough space to do the tango!
The decor was tasteful, one feature i like is the timber window shutters.
The place was bright & clean.

The location is excellent - opposite the Hyde Park, and 'round the corner to Market St (heart of CBD).

We had a pleasant stay in the hotel & will come back if the rate is around AUS$200.
