“Luxury visit to Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I have stayed at the Meriton World Tower many many times now and I can honestly say from my first visit to my most recent I have enjoyed the whole experience. The views are spectacular, the rooms are luxurious,clean and furnished with modern comfortable fittings. The position is so central to everything - although it is a shame to leave the apartment for anything. Parking is expensive although heavily discounted. I am always ranting about World Tower - love it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We stayed here for a family trip to Sydney. We had four adults (myself and hubby, his parents) and three children (two in beds and one in the cot)
Overall we were very impressed. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The beds were kings that split in the middle but with two of us in there it didn't matter. The AC was OK.... it did go off in the middle of the night which was not great, being summer it got quite warm and our toddler woke up very hot in the stuffy room.
The location was excellent, the view was the best ever, we would definitely stay here again if we could get a good deal on price.

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Sydney with family. The three bedroom apartment was fantastic. It was modern, clean, spacious and offered fantastic views of the Sydney CBD. The pool was also great. Definitely worth the price. Located reasonably well, although there are probably more centrally located places to stay.

These apartments have a great location and overall are quite comfortable.Beds are good: pillows terrible with no sign of a pillow menu or an alternative from synthetic.
Furniture is what one might expect.
We had some small niggling issues-couldnt get the TV to work in the bedroom.Bedside light u/s.
The tower is huge and while we did not have any problem with noise I imagine it could happen as the apartments seem to be populated with lots of teenagers travelling as groups.
Overall we got what we expected.But it is not 5 star.
Would I stay there again?possibly--but only as a family.If I were on business or travelling as a couple I would opt for a hotel.
Be aware that the lifts can be very slow and at peak times you may wait a long time.

Dear Calatrava,

Thank you for your four-star rating!

Many thanks for your review about Meriton World Tower. The majority of our apartments are two and three bedroom serviced apartments, which do cater for larger travelling groups or families. It is a more luxurious option and usually cheaper than 2-3 hotel rooms.

It is great to hear that we would see you again if you were travelling as a family and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Kind Regards,
Meriton Serviced Apartments Management

Second time staying here and very happy again.
Welcoming and friendly staff; spacious, overall well maintained apartments (we had a maintenance issue that was addressed immediately and professionally); fabulous view; awesome location. Everything we needed was just downstairs!
Arriving early in the morning, we were able to check in and leave our bags in a locked room whilst we explored the area.
Every Meriton employee I encountered in lifts, lobby, hallways all smiled and politely asked how I was, if I was enjoying my stay etc. Very nice from maintenance and housekeeping staff.
The apartment was clean and spacious. Kitchen appliances were sparkling clean. And the beds and pillows were so very comfortable.
Definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner suite on a high floor!

The reason for poor rating which otherwise would have been a terrible rating from me is this place is located very well, accessible to all major areas and close to darling harbor which is perfect for kids.

It could be a total expectation issue but we paid a ton of money per night due to the time of the year and this place sucks. We chose this over Four Seasons at 199 George Street just because we have a 2 year old and thought it would be more convenient to stay in a serviced apartment over a hotel.

Cons:

1. The apartment is so not serviced if they know what "service" means. The toilet was dirty when we walked in.
2. The microwave plat had bread crumbs from previous stay
3. Dishwasher was dirty, oven is dirty.
4. They don't come and clean the toilets every day, they just wipe them dry and they clean the bathroom floor with used towels that we leave out for changing
5. When asked for service, they say it is at an extra cost. CMON after paying what we paid

I am from the US but I have traveled enough and seen better service apartments in developing countries than this one.

Pros

The location is simply awesome, the view are great but I wish they had great service standards for what they are charging for and I would have loved my stay

Room Tip: If you have an option stay at the Four Seasons or anywhere closer to that.

Dear momigo

Thank you for taking the time to complete your online review.

We appreciate all guest feedback, as this valuable tool, allows us to act in a positive manner and to constantly improve the services we provide and pride ourselves on.

I was disappointed to learn of the unsatisfactory condition of your apartment during your recent stay. Please firstly accept my sincere apologies for the lack of cleanliness you reported. This is most certainly not the high standard that we pride ourselves on.

Our Housekeeping Department is often commended for their high standards of cleanliness, it seems on this occasion that our regular high standards have been overlooked, I assure you that this matter will be taken up with the relevant persons for further investigation.

As you kindly noted, our location is certainly very central and close to all amenities, also the view that our apartments offer of Sydney and beyond is amazing.

Momigo, I do hope that you will reconsider staying with us and would like to thank you once again for your time and feedback. Should you wish to discuss this any further please do not hesitate to contact me at tripadvisor.meriton.net.au

Kind Regards,

Meriton Serviced Apartments Management

My mates and I needed somewhere in Sydney that could sleep 6, no easy task, but we came across the Meriton. We settled on the Penthouse, which might i say was absolutely fantastic. Comfy beds, 2.5 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Large windows through the penthouse so you can take full advantage of how high up you are and the view. Absolutely brilliant!

Made a perfect base for our holiday, being situated right in the middle of Sydney, we could walk or had easily catch public transport from nearby. Highly recommended!
