“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 6, 2007

This is a first class hotel with excellent service, great location and wonderful views. We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and had a wonderful time, in fact we came in and out of here 2 or 3 times. They looked after our luggage when we travelled up north, changed our room when the air-con went on the blink without a hitch. This is how a hotel should be run - I can't recommend this place highly enough.

This is a modern hotel built above the old post office in Sydney. Located on Martin Place in the downtown, it is a short walk to the harbor and most main attractions. The rooms are modern and clean. Service is very good.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Westin Sydney on a business trip, however, the location is also excellent for leisure travelers due to its proximity to attractions such as the Opera House.

The rooms were of good size, offered the wonderful Heavenly Beds, but the real clincher for me was the beautiful bathroom and huge tub. The staff was also very effective and one member of their staff was extraordinarily helpful when their printers in their business center wouldn't work. She allowed me to e-mail my documents to her, printed them, made copies, and brought them to my room immediately and turned around what could have been a very frustrating situation.

I would absolutely recommend this property and stay again in the future.

Having stayed at many westin and starwood hotels, this has proved to be one of the better! I was expecting new year service to not be as good as normal, but staff here were always very friendly and helpful! Prices were a bit steep, paying nearly £300 a night over new year! But to be expected in a major city at this time! Rooms were huge, and a great bathroom with a glass screen enabling you to soak away your stresses whilst overlooking sydney! Perfect! Having been the 5th hotel I have stayed at in the Sydney area, this in now my choice for all return visits, well done starwood, keep those smiling staff!!

I've recently reviewed the Shangri La and Four Seasons and given this is usually one of the 3 hotels I stay in whilst in Sydney I'd thought I would give my views on this hotel.

One of Sydney's newer hotels and in a very central location, the Westin mixes modern chic with old age charm, but it does come at a cost. Whereby other hotels do charge for general additional services, the Westin charges to excess.

Room service, restaurants food is average and don't warrant the prices they charge. A charge for the use of the privately run gym is also somewhat exhorbitant (and the gym's not that great either)and the charge for using the internet is also above those of other 5 star hotels.

What the Westin does offer however are modern, clean and very comfortable rooms. Decor blends in well and calming. The bathrooms are large and modern and try and book one of the tower rooms where you can sit in the bath and look out into the city skylne. Beds are the classic Westin 'heavenly', very comfortable.

Service requests are attended to promptly but lacks the warmth factor.

Overall the Westin is a lovely hotel but for me apart from the modern rooms, I prefer the Shangri La or Four Seasons. But if its a central location you're after then go the Westin.

I always stay at this hotel when in sydney. Probably the best 5 star hotel in sydney with good staff. The hotel also charges 5 star prices for everything but that aside you will have a great time at this hotel

This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at. Period. I was visiting Sydney for a week, and I was thoroughly impressed with this hotel.

The facility, the rooms, the service, the atmosphere - everything was excellent without a doubt.

The service at the Westin Sydney was extremely professional and attentive. The location is excellent for exploring the downtown area - walking distance from a lot of great restaurants and also the harbor.

I highly recommend it.
