Four Seasons Hotel Sydney
Ranked #34 of 182 Hotels in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2007

Solid 5 star with good views in the heart of Sydney. Standard sized rooms although it has to be said the bathroom was on the small size. Reasonably stylish decor though some may not like the nineties style gold trimmings. Cable TV and broadband internet of course. Very large in-room electronic safe. While staff were attentive and very helpful, the breakfast service was surprisingly slow. Had to wait 10 mins to be seated. Obviously due to a staffing problem as only half the tables were being used. Peculiar that such a hotel doesn't have contingency plans for absent staff... The buffet itself was excellent as you would expect.

My (adult) daughter and I booked an Opera view room at the Four seasons on 26 January for a special treat to celebrate Australia Day.

We arrived early (11.30) in the hope of leaving our bags until check in at 3pm only to be advised that our room was ready and we had been upgraded to a full harbour view room on the 28th floor! We spent quite a bit of time just sitting at the window watching everything happening on the harbour and in the streets far below us. Sydney harbour is magic at night! Even though I have lived in Sydney all my life the magnificent view from our room still took my breath away. The room we had was spotless as was the bathroom. We couldn’t find fault with anything.

Everyone at the hotel, from having the door opened for us going into and out of the hotel even before we reached it, to the reception desk, to housekeeping, to the staff at breakfast it was wonderful. The professionalism and friendliness was first class and the hotel is to be congratulated on their staff. We will certainly be back for our next special occasion.

I recently spent 4 nights of my honeymoon at this hotel.
My first impression was this is an average hotel and not up to a four seasons standard. The rooms were too small and very bland. The pool and gym were good. The best part of this hotel is the location, and i guess that is what I paid for. There are so many other great hotels in the same vicinity that are much cheaper that I would stay in the next time i went.

Stayed for four nights mid-December. Was upgraded from Opera View room to Full Harbour View room. I think it was the 23rd floor. Brilliant views. Good front desk service. Fabulous bed - really comfy. Good gym and pool area. Really worth trying to get breakfast included in the rate - it is typically Four Seasons i.e. superlative. And as if that isn't enough the location is second to none.

My wife and I decided to splurge on our first hotel stay after the long trip from NY. Absolutely worth it. The hotel is beautiful with great ammenities (the spa was a great way to unwind after the flight and a whole day of touring) and the location (right on the water next to the circular quays) made getting in and around Sydney (including the beaches) a breeze. We got upgraded to an operahouse view, which was nice and our the room rate included a great breakfast buffet, which kept us full for most of the day. Highly recommended.

This hotel is pure indulgence. The whole hotel, from the lobby to the rooms was gorgeous. the rooms were a good size, nice decor and a stunning bathroom.all the major facilities - internet at a charge, but for some reason the first few days we werent charged as they failed to notice i was connected. we had a view overlooking the opera house and bridge which was to die for. it was a perfect spot as well to catch the new years eve fireworks.
the restaurants are excellent, service exemplory - especially the concierge. the only thing id knock is the valet-on two occasions they managed to misplace our car and left us waiting for over 30 mins whilst they relocated it.
the location is spot on. its a 5 min walk t o the opera house, main shopping areas and the ferry port is virtually down the street- you do not even need a car as everything is so within your reach.
would def recommend this hotel

The Four Seasons in Sydney is a fabulous Hotel. My wife and I spent Christmas and a few days before and had a wonderful experience. The staff is very attentive and extremely professional. The location is ideal to see the city. Part of our package included the breakfast buffet and you did not want for anything. If you want to be pampered, stay at the Four Seasons, you will not be dissapointed.
