My partner and I came to Sydney to enjoy the holidays and celebrate my birthday. We stayed in the Westin before and really impressed with excellent service and great room with comfortable bed. We came back again and it was another wonderful stay. The receptionist greeted us with warm smile and offered us great assistance. We have requested quiet room, which has been arranged and we were placed on the level 26.
It was quiet and the room was very clean.
I was surprised to receive complimentary birthday snack from the manager when we were back from outing. It made our stay really special. Thanks to the Westin. Now, the Westin is our favourite hotel in Sydney.
We had great sleep as the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was as fantastic as before. We loved the omelette and great selection of fresh juice. We certainly will come back again!!

Having stayed at Westin all over the US and somewhat abroad, I was surprised what a first rate experience this hotel provided. Housed in a 150 year old Post Office, the style is understated, minimalist, classy. Sure, there are the typical corporate bars and restaurants (owned by Starwood, presumably), but the rooms are clean, sleek, and have all of the amenities. Service was anticipatory, friendly, and efficient. I was offered a free breakfast as a Starwood Platinum, and it was an excellent hot breakfast - everything you could ask for, with a beautiful city view on the 28th floor.

I saw a few other high end area hotels that friends were staying at during this trip, and they were nowhere near comparable.

Absolutely love the Westin - perfect position metres from Martin Place.

The heavenly beds are, well heavenly, the most comfortable bed I've stayed in in Sydney (and I go there often). The water bottles and towels given to people coming back from a morning run is a nice touch as well.

On criticism would be that the breakfasts are over-priced, but that's standard for Sydney CBD hotels.

This hotel is in a perfect city location - the main shopping mall is approximately 50 metres away!
It is a beautiful hotel - great for a special occasion. The foyer smells divine! We found the staff to be especially friendly and helpful even though we weren't wearing suits! There are a lot of business people stay here. The only negative for us is that the car parking fees are outrageous!

Room Tip: Rooms looking in to the facade of the old post office building have a lovely ambience.

This is the hotel I would choose to return to when I go to Sydney. I used to go regularly to another one but have been disappointed lately. We stayed here for a weekend in March and I have to say the rooms are the best I've stayed in for a long time.

When staying in good hotels you do expect to get a good bathroom and often this is not the case. At The Westin the bath was lovely and luxurious - and the bathroom very well appointed. The service was as you would expect and the rooms large and spacious. The Westin's are notorious for their comfortable beds and luxiorious bedding and I always sleep like a log! In fact we even have their bedding at home, we bought some after staying at the Westin in Melbourne.

I do believe the standard of this hotel is high in comparison with competitive hotels in Sydney and do recommend it if you are after class, comfort and service.

Westin consistently outperforms most of its peers, and this property is no exception. The rooms are ample, comfortably appointed, well ventilated and quiet. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable to the point of anticipating your needs. My only quibble is that the executive lounge should be made available to gold members of the Starwood loyalty program, but that is a minor point.
