Having stayed at the Hyde Park in two years ago, and having enjoyed our experience there, we made three reservations this year: September 27 to October 2, October 5-9, and October 27 to November 5. (18 nights) After a long long trip from Toronto to Sydney including a twelve hour layover in San Francisco, we arrived at the hotel and checked in and went about some business in the city. Our room was ready at the appointed time and we headed for a much needed nap.
We were aware that renovations were underway but when we lay down, it seemed as if the drilling was in our heads. I went to the front desk and felt that the staff and manager were not at all sympathetic to our situation. As exhausted as I was after a 2 day trip, I was not pleasant to the manager. To make this short, we sorted that out, I apologized and we were moved to the 15th floor just about as far away from the noise as possible.
To add to that pleasant surprise, the onsite manager was able to block (or reserve or whatever they do) rooms on the 15th floor for the next two stays. THAT is taking care of a guest!
The hotel is located on Hyde Park just seconds from Museum Station and a short walk to a Monorail station, George Street (free shuttle bus through the CBD to the ferries,) Chinatown, the light rail, The new Westfield Shopping Centre, Oxford Street, City Hall, the QVB and much more.
We always book the Deluxe Studio with a request for a high floor and the beautiful view over the park. The rooms are clean, have a balcony and a kitchenette and available Wi-Fi. The beds are comfy and the service is efficient and friendly. On both this trip and the one two years ago, the hotel stored unneeded bags for us: once for two weeks!! There are three washers and three dryers available at no charge! No charge! Parking is available but as we had no car, I do not know what the cost is. Need ice? Someone will bring it to your room for you. Need to print or don’t have your own computer? Someone will take you to the business centre. No charge for printing!
Just in case the noise did remain a problem, we looked at some of the other hotels at that end of the park. HPI with its reasonable rates became a great bargain in comparison.
I know we will return to Sydney and I will book with Hyde Park Inn again with not even a second thought.
Hint: Just two doors down is a small café “My Coffee Room”: Good breakfast, great coffee, and the owner is a delight!
