“Treated like royalty!”
Reviewed August 27, 2010

Obviously this hotel isn't cheap, but if you're looking for unquestionable luxury then it's worth it. It was the icing on the cake of our stay in the city. You really feel like a VIP by all the staff, who can't do enough for you. The nice thing about these really good hotels is that you don't have to worry about 'extras', all stuff like internet, left luggage, doorman, taxi hailing, etc. is complimentary. Can't stress enough how good the staff were, and the room was so amazing we didn't want to leave - everything down to the ceiling heater and waffle robes in the bathroom!

The Hotel-
first impressions were fantastic - after all, who doesnt like men in top hats and tails opening doors for you?
Beautiful building - orinially housed a newpaper print, and then a bank.. has retained a lot of its heritage.
gorgeous entrance and impeccable service.
On arrival, we were informed we had been upgraded to a spa suite (I had informed the hotel our stay was for a special celabration) on the 7th floor.
The room -
The suite was stunning - a corner room with a massive bed, workstation and lounge area.. down the seperate hallway was the toliet and possibly the most beautiful bathroom i have ever seen. Also waiting for us was a bottle of sparkling wine on ice and some chocolate dipped strawberries , with a note congratulating us :D
The suite was tastefully decorated
The bed was massive, extremely comfortable and had a pillow menu (which made me giggle).
Facilities/service-
we checked out the pool/gym area - didnt use it, but it looked gorgeous.
Didnt eat in (as we were on a really tight budget)
cannot fault service - concierge staff very friendly, turndown service made me giggle again at the opulence, Ingred (the customer service officer?) went above and beyond to make our stay special

Location-
gorgeous spot - just out of the bustle of the main shopping precint, but close to everything. 5 minute, if that, walk to the rocks (ferries, harbour bridge, opera house), probably same distance to pitt st mall.. we walked everywhere, and were buggered at the end, but we did a couple of loops of the city, and to oxford st and back to see one of Australia's best bands - My Future Lies :)
there's plenty of budget food places close by, and coffee.

Overall, could not recommend this highly enough to others, and will return ourselves as soon as possible

I stayed here for my Birthday and i couldnt of picked a better place. I have stayed here before and the service was just as good. Because it was my Birthday room service bought up a bottle of wine and wished me happy birthday. All the staff here are so friendly always saying hello and are so helpful. Breakfast was lovely our waiter sat us down and bought us a pot of tea and coffee straight away. Our room was perfect we had a premier room and the bath had shutters that opened up so you could see into the bed room. The bed was so compfy and everything was spotless.

The bed was very comfortable, the sheets luxurious and the room quiet.The hotel was undergoing some renovations and presumably replacing some furniture as my desk chair was on it's last legs. Room service food was very good and seemed fast. Almost all staff extremely friendly and efficient. Room was a bit dark. Decent length heated pool was very handy. Terribly street parking availability for anyone visiting. Virtually no street parking ever so option is $40 in lot nearby. Great wi-fi at no additional cost. Walk to Botanical Gardens. Good coffee shops close by. Great doormen.

We spent 3 nights at the Radisson. Location was great as subway station is just couple of blocks from the hotel. Circular Quay is also within walking distance.
The room was very clean and beds were very comfortable. We got the spa room which is a little bit larger than a regular room. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Business centre located on floor 6th offers free internet.

We stayed at the Radisson when it was being renovated but we hardly noticed because the service was great, the rooms were minimalist but spacious and the food delicious. Highly recommend dinner at Bilsons too - we loved being 1 minute from 'home'! Breakfast also good, enjoyed the omelette chef's creations.

We took advantage of "The Wicked Package" for a Saturday evening overnight City stay and were very impressed with the efficient, friendly check-in procedure, the Premium room, "Wicked" dessert, plus Breakfast served in the room and the overall positive attitude of all the staff we met. It was great value and we would highly recommend the hotel for a City break, as such a handy location between Circular Quay/The Rocks and the main department stores. Free internet access was a bonus.
