Quay West Suites Sydney

Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was our first trip to Australia and our first accomodation. We asked for a two bedroom suite (4 of us traveling) with a harbor view. Well, the view was spectacular!. We clearly saw the Circular Quay which included the Opera House, the famous Bridge and the a good portion of the harbor. It was a convenient walk down to the Rocks and the harbor as well as to the shopping area adjacent to the Opera House. Because it is up the hill from the Circular Quay, it was VERY quiet. Breakfast served on the mezzanine level was quite good as well.

Room Tip: Above the 15th floor if you want a great harbor view.

Had a wonderful stay at Quay West Suites. Got an excellent deal online for the room. Please have more of these deals! The staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing and room service was like being in a restaurant - excellent quality. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

The location is near walking distance to Sydney Opera House and boats that can take you anywhere you want to go. Pool is in door so you won't get much sun.... Breakfast isn't the best so maybe grabbing it somewhere else may be better. The Rocks is a little more expensive so going to another area may be a good break for the wallet. If I didn't need a 2 bedroom I wouldn't have stayed there but we needed the extra room.

Stayed at Quay West Suites for four nights in February. My room exceeded my expectations! It was large, modern, clean and had lovely views. You can't beat the location at the Circular Quay. I could walk downtown and to Darling Harbour easily - as well as the Botanical Garden. The Opera House is just a few blocks away. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Strongly recommend!

Having arrived in Sydney quite late at a pre-booked apartment in Darling harbour - Goldsbrough Apartments - , we were so so disappointed, they were disgusting and filthy and easily the worst part of a 2 month tour... so we jumped in a taxi straight to Quay West because we were aware of the place but knew it was above our budget... but we had to escape Goldsbrough and escape we did with the help of a waiting taxi!

Quay West is amazing and if there was ever a time when I wish I'd just spent the money to start with, this was it... it is 100% great value for money and if you want to see Sydney, this is the only way to do it and the panoramic views will last a lifetime in the memory!

It's so well placed for everything too... and the staff were lovely - thanks guys!

Room Tip: ...just get one as high up as possible and overlooking the Quay of course :-)

I could not imagine a better room or view of Sydney! And the customer service was wonderful as they were flexible when I asked for a higher floor for an even better view (and more privacy). The room was actually an apartment. And we couldn't get enough of one of the few balconies in Circular Quay with the view of the bridge and the opera house.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony - you won't regret it!

We stayed one night at this hotel which is in easy walking distance to Sydney Opera House and The Rocks area. There is only valet parking (on the cheaper side for expensive Sydney) and it took a bit of time for any staff to notice me parked outside and assist with the luggage check in. (There is only limited and temporary parking outside the hotel.) Otherwise check-in was perfect and when it turned out there was a problem with our room's airconditioning we were immediately give an upgraded room with a limited harbour view although we had not booked a harbour view room.

We have already booked to stay here again.
