The Westin Sydney is a beautiful hotel located directly in the center of Sydney's business district and a close walk to all tourist attractions. The lobby of the hotel is formed out of an old post office with lots of charm. The location right on Martin Place, a pedestrian only street, which adds calm to this centrally located city hotel. We booked the hotel for leisure and were a bit concerned that the hotel would be too business oriented for our pleasure trip. Although the Westin certainly has a business feel to it, the hotel is very central and perfect for a Sydney tourist. Just a short walk to the Rocks, the Opera House, the Botanic Gardens, Darling Harbour, etc. (between 10-15 minutes to each).
As Starwood Platinum members we enjoyed a host of benefits--including a delicious breakfast, happy hour, snacks (coffee/tee/hot chocolate, cookies, fruit) and free internet. The staff members are very responsive and incredibly pleasant. The rooms themselves are of the usual modern, Westin Standard--very clean, rather spacious, and very comfortable.
The Sydney Westin is a great place to stay!More
