Swissotel is on top of a department store (Myer) and right next to central Sydney shopping (Westfield, David Jones, Mid City Centre, Strand Arcade, Myer, QVB). The rooms start at floor 11.

Sofitel Wentworth is nearer to tourist sites such as Opera House, Harbour Bridge, the ferries and Botannic Gardens. Sofitel is more a traditional hotel with lobby at street level etc.

Great information from Dytokyo as always

In terms of immediate access to shopping, Swissotel cannot be beaten. As mentioned above, it is literally in the midst of the shopping precinct. In terms of dining, both are close to various different dining areas.

In terms of the physical room product, again the Swissotel is vastly superior to Sofitel, which has not undergone renovations in a long time.

If you happen to be an Accor member with status, you'll obtain more benefits from Sofitel, as Swissotel has not fully integrated into the Accor system yet.
