I stayed in room 811 on Friday February 8, 2013. Brilliant location- opposite the Entertainment Center- wonderful for concerts (I was seeing Barry Gibb in concert).
Arrived at 3-45pm- staff wonderful. Alas, after alighting at the 8th floor- my breath was taken aback by the severe pungent musty smell- which didn't improve after I entered my room. The smell took my breath away. The smell was so bad that it gave me a sore throat. Holiday Inn- the smell is serious- you need to air your floors and eliminate the smell. I'm a Sydney resident, but next time I stay over night in the city, I won't be staying at the Holiday Inn (opposite the Entertainment Center).Room and bed were great. Holiday inn- lift your game. I have stayed with Holiday Inn in other parts of the world- and there has never been a problem. Shame about Sydney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. 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.

Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct and Circular Quay are nearby too. ... more less
