“Very Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Pleasant hotel. Well appointed hotel in a very central location. Quiet room had two queen beds which perhaps crowded it a little, but all one would expect from a top class hotel. Efficient staff though need more staff at checkout time early morning.
WiFi was an extra - should be free. Recommend consider other options before using the valet parking - cost us $60 for overnight parking

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Bridge or Opera House

As a frequent user of Marriott hotels I may be somewhat biased about the overall excellent quality of their properties. Their hotel at Circular Quay is in a excellent location just a 1/2 block to the harbor. It is a great locale for access to the Opera House, Sydney Bridge, the Rocks and all of the harbor excursions. When my wife and I arrived we were provided with a handicap room on a lower level that we did not rquest. Since I was using Marriott points I felt we deserved a better location and should have been apprised of the type of room prior to hauling our luggage. Our compliant was very satisfactorly resolved by a change in room location overlooking the harbor and a complimentary bottle of wine. We are not ones to complain and we were very pleased with how this was handled. Many, many restaurants and things to do in a short walking distance from the hotel.

This is a lovely hotel. The staff was very helpful, efficient, and courteous. The room was excellent with a fabulous view! Great place to stay! If I am fortunate enough to go to Sydney again I will definitely stay here!

I recently stays at the Marriott Sydney Harbour for 4 nights on a business trip. The hotel was fine. Clean, well appointed, decent work out facility and reasonable breakfast. The harbor view is restricted so don't believe the marketing that you will have a full harbor view. Partial at best. Having said this, the location is great (1 block from Circle Quay).

No better location to stay in, than Circular Quay! No better hotel to stay in than Marriott!
With a room that has a view of the famous Opera House, one could ask for nothing more.
The Tower rooms with a king bed are spacious! The breakfast in the executive lounge is frugal though. However, it does make up for the selection of snacks and drinks provided throughout the rest of the day.
Concierge - very helpful. Baggage reached just as i reached the room which was super!
Reception - extremely courteous. On the whole a great stay!

Due to flight schedule we arrive early, before 12 and the room was ready with a smile. Our requested limo from and to the airport was arranged flawlessly. The bar staff was extremely helpful with suggestions of what to see and where to go. Extra towels were brought in minutes. The only downside was a taxi ride from the hotel with a driver who knew less about Sydney than I and it was my first time there. Recommend that drivers are screened.

Stayed here for a few nights on award points and was very happy. The first room we checked into seemed to have had smokers in it previously. We called the front desk and got switched to a nicer room and a better view of the Oera House. Executive lounge was larger than most and had a great selection of food. Only it needs a printer to go with the computers, sometimes you need to print things off that are private or proprietary and you don't want to have to send to the hotel email address and have the lounge attendants print off, you can't control if they delete it.
