Stayed here for 5 days... Nice staff .. Great location. Most rooms have wonderful views of harbour. Get shuttle from airport $34 return instead of $80 one way for taxi. Two things ... No wifi except in Lobby which is extremely slow and breakfast packed away too early. Go to Harbourside Food Court for brekky .. Great fruit salad.

We stayed here for a weekend on June during the vivid festival. We liked this hotel for its location. Just a short walk to the harbourside. There are several options for food 'coz it is close to the harbourside shopping centre, which has some restaurants and a food court. There's also a light rail nearby and the closest ferry is...

Drinks in the bar on Saturday evening were reasonably priced, loved the free canapés. Breakfast buffet was extensive, was a nice touch to be able to get barista made coffee at no extra cost. Staff were... More

As part of the Accor Plus Program, I elected to redeem our complimentary night stay at the Novotel on Darling Harbour. At check-in, we were served by Rebecca at the Accor dedicated check-in desk. Rebecca thanked us for our loyalty - which was much appreciated, and I might add - is a rare occasion as it doesn't happen very often... More

This hotel as been slightly upgraded. A little better for dinning in and for breakfast. Not that many kids functions after hours, once the pool or outside area is closed. I stay often and always will because of the location and service and facilities..... sometimes because of the price!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
