“Comfortable business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I stay at SOTP quite frequently and it is comfortable and well-located, if not 5-star.

Pros: excellent beds, nice rooms. Service at the front desk is good but housekeeping can be a little hit and miss.

Cons: room service is expensive and pretty average, most views are uninspiring .

I stayed here the day before my wedding, Jan 18th and my wedding night Jan 19th. I don't know why it has taken me so long to write this review, as this hotel is simply exquisite.

We stayed in the Hyde Park Suite, and whilst expensive, the service and room are second to none. The room was large and spread out enough for 4 brides maids, MOB, dress designer, photographer, two videographers, FOB, and others!

We had plenty of room to get ready, and the staff were SO helpful.

I can honestly reccomend this hotel and room type to any bride to be who is looking for a lovely hotel in the CBD. A plus was the access to the VIP room upstairs where you can get tea, coffee, wifi, snacks etc.

A massive bonus, was that in the week leading up to our stay, I recieved a questionaire, where i selected my preffered beverages, mentioned i would like an ipod dock in the room, particular movies and a cheese platter! All were waiting for us on arrival. It was easy to send up everyone that was arriving to the room, my flowers were stored in the cool room, nothing was too much!!

I can't comment on the spa, as i didnt use it during my stay, however im sure it would be lovely!!
Thank you so much Sheraton on the Park, truely magnificent, i will be recommending your hotel and revisiting!

PS, the dinner buffet in main restaurant is TO DIE FOR! amazing oysters and plenty of fresh sea food!

Room Tip: The suites are amazing and although slightly exxy, well worth it!! David jones food hall is a 2 min...

Sheraton deserves it's reputation. We stayed one night for a wedding at the nearby Church and wished we had booked more nights. We stayed in the "city side" room (no real view).
The Good:
- great value (compared to other hotels we stayed at on the same trip)
- comfortable bed with well appointed room
- quiet, central location
The Bad:
- check-in time is 3pm, which was a bit restrictive for us and we had to down-grade to get in earlier
- room size was a little small

Dear seriocomic,
Thank you for choosing to stay at the Sheraton on the Park and for taking the time to share your feedback. The combination of all your points together with our Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds (which can be purchased through our hotel) is the reason why so many guests choose to stay with us. Our standard rooms are the largest you will find in Sydney and standard check in times for all 5 Star hotels are 2-3pm however I have taken your feedback on board and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for a much longer stay.
Warm regards

Firstly, the hotel accommodation is of a high standard.
Where this hotel could be better is a faster check in check out service. It should also limit the amount of guest who can access the Club Lounge as can get overcrowded, uncomfortable and difficult to get a seat or any sort of reasonable service.

Although pricey for an average sized room (over $300 per night), the hotel is an upscale Sheraton across from a large city park and near transportation, shopping, and dining...a good place to walk around. Room had a nice sized bathroom with separate shower and tub and a king bed. Space was tight, though, for 3 adults, and a roll away just barely fit. View was of an alley/side street (guess $300+ doesn't get you a view, even when a spg member). Concierge service was excellent!

Room Tip: Ask for a park view.

Very pleasant stay in my brief time in Sydney. It was convenient to everything I needed and to the airport - St James train station is a 100m away. Lovely spacious room and high standard of amenities, although really didn't use any of them.
