“Staying with The Lions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Radisson Blu SYD for the final British & Irish Lions test in July 2013. I can't say enough about the hotel...fantastic location and excellent facilities. The pool and hot room were fantastic for the morning after - pure therapy.

This is a great hotel in the centre of the CBD.

Yes it is really aimed at the business market but I can't fault this place at all.

Stayed on the business floor and had very nice breakfasts.

would recommend and will re-visit.

I really loved this hotel. The service is great, the staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are large and warm, and the breakfast was really good. I have nothing to object. I would totally recommend it to anyone who searches for a great place to stay in Sydney, no matter if it`s a business, solo, couple or family trip.

In Sydney for a medical conference. Very pleased to be put up at this hotel. Free WiFi (not sure if this is available to all guests), great facilities and service as good as anywhere were the icing on this cake. I'll stay here again.

We checked in late to this hotel and were pleasantly surprised to get a complimentary room upgrade. Great start. I'd never stayed at this hotel before and I was delighted with the location, in close proximity to Circular Quay as we were booked for the Opera. The room was one of the largest I've been in, in Sydney. It was a spa suite. Huge bed, sitting area, huge bathroom with separate toilet, generally loads of room for two people to swing cats! We didn't have much to do with the staff, checkin was efficient and the upgrade was very welcome and the valet service was friendly and good value at $40 for an overnight. We availed of the express checkout as we had no charges to check except parking. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The spa suite was very spacious.
