As we were joining a cruise from Sydney we only needed i night's accomodation so having had good service from Holiday Inn in Hangzou when on business I decided to try the Darling Harbour Hotel. We arrived by air at 7.30 a.m. and proceeded to the hotel expecting to wait until 2 p.m. for the room but to our pleasant surprise a room was made available on request at 08.45 and we were able to freshen up and make the most of our full day in Sydney. The following day we requested a late check out and was again impressed with the obliging reception who allowed us to use the room until 1.30pm and to go directly to our cruise ship for the 2pm check in. Breakfast was good with the usual buffet continental at 20$AUS each or hot style and extremely efficient in dealing with the diners. The room on 7th floor was the typical Holiday Inn, very good size, clean and equipped with tea making facilities, fridge flat screen TV. The bed wasking size, very comfortable with a choice of pillows. The extra surprise was the circular monorail passed by the side of the hotel, this provides a very quick and easy form of travel to most areas and you can get an all day ticket which if you make more than 1 trip is very attractive.

Situated in the southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Qantas Credit Union Arena is right across the road.
