I stayed in 2 rooms during my stay at the Westin Sydney. This hotel is housed in the old central Post Office so the architecture is really interesting.
Staff were efficient but less friendly than the Westin Melbourne (experienced on the same trip). We were checking in early in the morning so the room we got initially was okay. The room was clean, spacious and met with a view of office buildings.
The next day we were moved to a larger room (a suite) - big change. Large living room area (sofa, lounge chair) with walk-in closet area. Bathroom was beautiful with a tub overlooking the city. There was also a second powder room available. Best part was that we weren't just facing neighbouring office building windows - so quite a bit more privacy! Beds were super comfortable!!
The hotel's fitness area is a confusing maze as it's run by some local sports club in the other section of the hotel. I ended up looking for it but not using it. The Westin "Experience" at this hotel was drinking some cocktails in the lounge with black/white pictures of the old post office on easels. Definitely less interactive than the Westin in Melbourne. The Club Lounge had a beautiful view with yummy champagne and canapes. The breakfast buffet in the morning was pretty delicious and had a bit more in offerings than I was expecting.
The hotel is situated in a central area in the Central Business District and was convenient to other areas of Sydney.
The old-school post office box in the lobby actually works (my postcards made it to friends back home) and checkout was no problem at all. I felt it was the standard professional Westin hotel experience but the staff were cold and unfriendly - could someone please smile?
