This is by far the best Hilton at which I have ever stayed. A fantastic downtown location and beautiful rooms. For those that like to exercise, go out the the back and run through Hyde Park towards the Botanical Gardens and down around the Opera House! An amazing gym/pool/steam room/sauna.

For those Gold Members, a fanastic Exec lounge as well.

Great location- 10 minutes to Darling Harbour and in the middle of everything! We were on the 25th floor which had an exceptional view of Sydney. Bed was comfortable and the hotel was clean. I have stayed at many Hiltons and this one was by far one of the nicest. The staff were very helpful and courteous, and their service was excellent. There is also a nice coffee shop in the lobby.The only downside was that the internet was very expensive ($30/day).

Evidently the last reviewer (March 23) had a suite, because our room on the top floor (43rd) was pretty cramped - just about enough space to walk around the bed - and the bathroom was somewhat similar to the bathroom on a cruise ship. I wouldn't say the view was all that great either because the windows are narrow slits and nearby buildings even taller than the Hilton prevent you from seeing anything really interesting. Furthermore, I'm not so sure the location is all that great either, it's a significant walk to Darling Harbor (especially coming back uphill) and verging on a cab ride to Circular Quay. But that's enough 'winging', as they say.

Apart from those things the hotel is excellent. The executive lounge is great with a nice breakfast buffet and evening hors d'oeuvres and drinks - although the offerings are exactly the same every day (there should be a rotation or change every day or two). The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Before our arrival the concierge called around to find out where we could get certain specialty food items. We mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and a balloon and chocolates were waiting in the room. Also, the Marble Bar below the lobby is an astonishing and unexpected gem. The entire room, which was disassembled from its original 19th C. location and moved here, is lavishly carved multi-colored marble. It's like something out of a museum or historic mansion. Really incredible - and the drink prices are remarkably reasonable.

Room Tip: Request a high floor, although it doesn't really make that much difference.

We stayed in the Hilton Sydney for New Year so it was expensive but the room was lovely, it was spotless and the staff were really helpful. Great location being right central to Darling Harbour, the Rocks and Circular Quay.

Spent one night in the Hilton.

The good
- location for shopping or if your office is near the QVB
- modern and functional room
- View on the city
- good night of sleep

The not so good
- Room was ok, but small. I was at the Intercontinental the week before, and the room were larger (ok, intercon is a bit dearer)

The rooms are nice, but missing the WOW factor. Still prefer the intercon....
