“A classy hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I enjoyed my stay here in October 2012. The staff here was helpful and friendly. My room was very pleasant and although it didn't have a view, it was comfortable and quiet with a nice couch and area to relax. I walked to the harbor, the rocks , shopping and restaurants-perfect.

I had stayed at the Grace some time ago and not been terribly impressed with it, but was booked into it again by work recently and had a very different experience of it. This time I was in a much higher room, away from the conference rooms. I found my room to be extremely quiet, spacious and immaculately clean. Check in was significantly delayed by a fire alarm being investigated, but this was of course beyond the hotel's control and the staff were polite and very apologetic for the delay. This stay certainly changed my opinion of the Grace and I would more than happily stay here again, especially when travelling for business.

Spent a long weekend at the Grace. First impressions - great staff, extremely helpful and courteous. Lovely foyer. Room large and well fitted out. Had booked a twin studio and was told we had been upgraded. Certainly spacious with good bathroom (only complaint, towel rail inside shower area?). Beds extremely comfortable. We were offered cheaper breakfasts if we booked and paid the night before which was a bonus - good selection and nice to have your eggs cooked to order. Walk out the door and you are in the centre of the city shopping area. Nice rooftop pool to cool off in after a hot day pounding the pavements. Would certainly stay there again.

This is my 3rd stay at Grace Hotel and once again, the hotel did not disappoint. Check-in/out was prompt and hassle free. The room was reasonably sized and very clean and the decor was thoughtful. The bed was very comfortable.The cleaning staff were excellent, I left early in the morning and attached the "please make up room" sign on the door, and arriving 2 hours later, the room was clean and fresh. If there is something I can suggest to the hotel, it would be the hairdyers attached to the wall in the bathrooms which did not work very well.

We had a king room which was very spacious with a good sized bathroom. The hotel is located in a lovely heritage building and was perfect for our needs. We had a dinner booked on the waterfront at Circular Quay overlooking the Opera House on one side and the Harbour Bridge on the other. We also had a champagne breakfast booked (for our wedding anniversary) at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour. The hotel is located in between and was an easy walk to both. We parked in a nearby public carpark so it was all nice & easy. The bed was comfy so all good. Needless to say we had a wonderful weekend in the city to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room on a higher level. We were given a room in the centre of the hotel on the...

Poor service poor quality food ... Staff unfriendly ... Orders incorrect and they had locked restaurant door so guests could not access closest toilet .. Had to use side service delivery stairs to access facilities on ground floor (which were dirty)

Class hotel with a really interesting feel with the art deco style. Good location a couple of blocks from Pitt st mall, not far to Cockle bay and Darling Harbour. At the same time we strolled to the rocks quite comfortably.
