“Never fails to impress, always outstanding”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I recently received an offer via email for stays sun- thurs at a very low rate ($180 per night for basic room, $210 for a 2 bedroom and $278 for a star suite). We booked the star suite for $278 on a sunday nightwhich included valet parking, outstanding value. Check in was smooth and efficient, always a pleasure to return. The room overlooked the front of star city, with views of darling harbor, the city, bridge and harbour. The room was fitted out beautifully with 2 large tvs, separate longe area, small dining table and best of all a tv in the 2 person spa. With approx 70sqm there was plenty of room, and the little touches such as Tim tams with the coffee and teas, luxury amenities ect. The complimentary gourmet chocolates and bottled water was also an appreciated touch. We will be back again... Soon.

Room Tip: Star suites are worth the little extra

First trip to Sydney for my daughter and myself. My daughter won the trip for the hair expo, so accommodation was paid for, so I don't know if it was value for money. Rooms were very clean, nice and modern. Bathroom nice. Breakfast was included, after a long walk thru the casino to get to it, it was fantastic! Everything available from stirfrys, cooked breakfast to delicious mango yogurt etc. Service throughout the hotel was excellent. Staff very pleasant and only too willing to help. Tourist double decker bus picks you up from hotel. Lots of taxis available. Close to walk to darling harbour. Coles nearby. Lots of coffee shops within the hotel.

The star is every you expect in a five star hotel with he advantage of having its own light rail stop. Easy access from the airport via central station.
The rooms are large and have good views of the bridge.

There is a number of great food venues mostly with an Asian menu.
The breakfast Buffett was excellent.

The only criticism is that it is very large and hard to find you way around but the staff are helpful.

I stayed here with family as we were seening War Horse which was in the same building. The first room we stayed in was nice. It was very clean and the bathroom was great for our needs.
the second room was one of the 2 bedroom suites, the view was amazing of the city but for the price the furnishings and cleanness could of been better. I like the fact that Coles Supermarket was just a 5min walk from the Casino.
Beautiful restaurants were located in the grounds.

Four of us shared a two bedroom residence which we needed for one night. It is contemporary functional with two bathrooms, kitchen, dining area and lounge. Located within the Star Casino complex which was a good location for us as one of our party wanted to gamble. Our room came with the breakfast buffet which had a wide variety. We found our accommodation clean and with no complaints. Check in is easy.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment here for my Mums 60th Birthday and we went a saw War Horse. I was thinking about how to rate the hotel the whole time and to be honest I couldn’t find much to fault.

I’ll start with the good.
- Great location for what we needed
- Friendly and helpful staff
- View was amazing we stayed on level 8 and views of the city and harbor bridge were especially beautiful due to the Vivid light show
- Kitchen was great big and had all you needed
- Bathrooms were a great size and shower pressure was unbelievable
- Parking was reasonable for the city $26 overnight (Valet)
- Express checkout was extremely easy
- Pillow menu! (loved this)
- There was a party going on with kids next door and we couldn’t hear them! We only knew the party was there was when the balcony was open on their side and ours. GREAT SOUND PROOFING
Now the bad was hard to find anything so ive just listed a few.
- We had 4 people staying in this hotel and had to call for a roll away bed as the bed in the second bedroom was a king single. I don’t know how a couple is meant to share 1 King Single. The good part of this was the staff were quick with bringing the bed and didn’t charge us any extra.
- Cost of a movie $16.95 I find this a bit high but I guess its business
- $7.50 for a 300ml Mineral Water in the mini bar (again this is just business)
- No free wifi (why aren’t hotels offering this)

We had breakfast downstairs outside "flying fish takeaway" excellent food and reasonable price and you dont even have to go outside!
All in all this was a great get away and yes can be pricy on a Saturday night but we got a great deal and was worth it! Would stay here again with a family or group of friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with City Views it is worth the extra $$$.

If you are looking for an excellent place to stay whilst in Sydney I can fully recommend this hotel.
The rooms are very modern, clean, and fully equipped. The location is of course amazing, within the Star Casino complex it is also a short walk to Darling Harbour and the city itself.
The room so comfortable, warm and inviting I have no hesitation in giving this property an excellent overall rating.
