“Marriott at The Rocks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I recently stayed at the Marriott near Circular Quay in Sydney. I travel regularly to Sydney for business and of late have stayed at this venue. This time around I was in a Deluxe Room.

Generlaly speaking, it all comes down to the bed and the bathroom for me. The bed was comfortable and I was able to sleep without any trouble. The room was well appointed with an LCD TV offering many channels and movies. The bar fridge is well stocked and the there is plenty of storage space for clothes etc.

I did not score a harbour view this time around, however, as I was only there for two nights on business, I did not mind.

The disappointment for me was the bathroom. For a 5 Star hotel, it is very cramped. Rather than a standard door opening inward, a sliding door option may be the way to go.

Service at the Marriott as you would expect is excellent and the restaurnant & bar facilities are first class though I do wonder why the main bar closes at 11.00pm.

Overall value for your travelling dollar is satisfactory.

The Marriott hotel at Circular Quay is where you want to be to walk to the Rocks, CBD, Chinatown, Darling Harbor and of course the Botanic Gardens and Opera House. Comfort and cleanliness level was up to Marriott 's standards. The view of the harbor and Opera House was well worth the additional cost. We took the train to and from the airport as it stops only a block away. Staff seemed to totally enjoy helping us with our plans.

Room Tip: If you can, select room on higher floor with harbor view. It is so memorable as to be worth the addi...

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for one night just this last weekend and had a very enjoyable time. We booked a room without a view because it was cheaper. We did end up with a small view of the bridge however, so that was a nice bonus. The location of the hotel is so fantastic. If you want to be right near Circular Quay (the Opera House, Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo etc) then this is the place for you!

I thought the foyer was quite grand! The room was fine although there was no bath which we missed.We had a room with two double beds which was great for our needs. Everything was perfectly clean and neat. The service was fine and we thought the breakfast was great!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and I would stay here again without hesitation.

Stayed here with family members in December 2011. Was impressed by how clean the hotel is and its perfect location.
Our room had a great view of the Harbour bridge and other various areas of Circular Quay.
Rooms were always clean and staff always polite.
Will stay again

The Marriott is only a short walk from the cruise ship dock at Circular Quay. It is a beautiful property with an exceptionally friendly staff. The rooms are modern, clean, and comfortable. There is also an excellent fitness facility on site. Rooms have views of the Opera House or the bridge. Highly recommended.

We stayed here two nights.in October this year. The rooms are nice. The only thing they lack is a balcony which would have really added to our stay here. Water pressure half way up the building on the 15th floor was low. Makes me wonder what its like going higher... Lobby leaves much to be desired as far as relevance and wow factor. Location is very good being one block from the docks at Circular Quay, a wonderful area. We ate dinner at Icons inhouse and the food was very good. Overall, its looking pretty dated other than the rooms. Things need updated and repaired. We did enjoy our stay here.

Room Tip: Get the covers all rail, ferry, boat and bus pass if moving around the city. It will save you a bun...
