Very good central Sydney Hotel. Great location with easy walking distance to Darling Harbour and The Opera House. Several elevators for easy access to rooms. Very quiet rooms and high quality fittings. Very close to 5 star.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my parents in September 2016. Firstly, after check-in, we proceeded to Level 12, which is the level of our room. Upon stepping out of the elevator, we were welcomed by a foul smell (like smelly feet). This can be smelt along the corridor leading to our room. We were given a double room... More

I was here managing an event in September and was very well pleased with the service from all hotel staff. I was offered tea/coffee regularly, we were easily able to make a number of changes to the event timetable, and on arrival the 2nd day everything had been set back up for us exactly how we needed it! Great service!... More

We stayed for 3 nights - 8/9 - 11/9. Check-in was effortless. We were delighted to be upgraded from a standard to executive room, which is slightly larger than the standard. Bed was comfortable. There was an abundance of powerpoints which is a plus. Blinds are 100% block out, useful for an afternoon nap. However a design flaw was that... More

Your constructive feedback is definitely noted, Tinwoodsman_Oz. I'll certainly address those areas of improvement with our head of department managers to ensure that we improve on the experience but it's always good to hear that you were able to still enjoy yourself.

I happened to visit this hotel recently as a friend was in town and I was impressed. Very clean hotel room and quite s good size room and bathroom. Although I didn't stay at the hotel, I saw enough to suggest that I'd stay here if I was out and about at this end of town. Quite good.

We stayed as a family - family room good value. First night room was way too noisy with traffic noise - but luckily we got moved to an inward facing room on request which was perfect. Breakfast busy with large tour groups and pretty average - lots of good eating options nearby, would not bother with pre paid breakfast in... More

Looks like our front office team were able to resolve the noise situation quite quickly for you, LeanneB08. We had a very large tour group that stayed with us that may have contributed to the additional traffic during breakfast. Kan Huang Front Office Manager More

Very comfortable hotel. Great bed and location to amenities cannot be passed up. When I checked in I was able to get a free late check out of 1pm by signing up to be a Rydges member, definitely worth it in my view. Will be back if I can!

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.
