“Good city location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

For me, the location was ideal, close to Darling Harbour and George Street. The rooms are big with good workspace, and a comfortable bed. The front desk staff are super friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast buffet is better than average, and the seafood buffet they serve mid-week was fantastic and great value.
The internet didn't really work in the rooms, so I spent more time than normal in the lobby where the wi-fi was perfect. Apart from that, the hotel bar is lively and they have good pub grub. Also, a couple of nice after-work bars just across the traffic lights.
Nice place, good ambience and good value too.

Dear DougPeris,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and writing a feedback on TripAdvisor.

I am pleased to read your positive feedback especially that you were able to experience our warmth hospitality. The Grace Hotel is very fortunate to be situated in such a prime location near the main attractions in the Sydney CBD.

I am very disappointed to read however, that you had difficulties with the wireless internet connecting in your room and this resulted in you utilising the internet in the lobby. Please note that the hotel rooms offer guest cable-connected internet as well as wi-fi.

Once again, thank you for you feedback and we do look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,
Christina Mendieta
Guest Relations Manager

The Grace Hotel is my preferred hotel in Sydney CBD for business and pleasure. It is close to Martin Place, Cockle Bay and an easy walk to Darling Harbour and The Rocks. The hotel also has a lot of interesting history.

My wife and i spent 5 nights at the Grace Hotel in April. We stayed in a premium King room and breakfast was included each day. We also decided to have the seafood buffet on one of the nights as well. Room was extremely spacious and modern and clean. House keeping do a great job in the presentation of the rooms. Buffet breakfast in the brasserie was first class, everything was hot and fresh with a lot of time put into the presentation. The seafood buffet was very nice but could do with more options but overall very good. Staff were all pleasant and friendly and the place has a good feel to it. I stayed in many top hotels and this is up there with them. I have no hesitation in recommending The Grace Hotel to anyone, you will enjoy it

Stayed on business. Perfectly acceptable homogenous hotel room, on the large size for Sydney. My request for a quiet higher floor was accommodated, and I was not disappointed. Comfortable bed, roomy shower/bathroom, friendly staff. Room service food options and prices were reasonable, and the food was fine. Breakfast buffet also fine. The management could consider upgrading the very small and slightly tired gym on the top level if they want to appeal more to the business traveler. Lack of free wifi is disappointing. Please consider providing this for guests in the public area foyer at least! Overall a nice hotel, lacking any real pizazz but offering all the basics at a good standard that one expects when staying in 4 star CBD hotel.

Room Tip: Higher courtyard facing are quiet but as a consequence have no view.

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and would happily recommend it as the rooms are comfortable, well presented and have everything you would expect. The location is ideal for CBD business or as a central base for a Sydney city break. Close to numerous transport options and restaurants. The building was apparently Inspired by the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower in Chicago and I particularly like the Art Deco architectural style. I have yet to eat at the restaurant or utilise its pool facilities. As long as you avoid the hairdresser which I believe is run independently but is based at the hotel you should have a very nice stay.

Room Tip: High rooms are very quiet.

Lovely restoration of the old Grace bros. building, Staff were excellent, initial mix up on room was fixed quickly and graciously, excellent buffet brekkie, concierge was very helpful especially after we got a flat tyre thursday arvo before good friday he found us a place to have it repaired. It is a great location, rooms are clean and functional (not big ).

It is a little pricey (thats Sydney though, overpriced) but we got a good deal including breakfast by booking early through a seperate site! Parking is an issue and overpriced (Sydney again :) ! Small pool, spa and Gym were used

The Air Con didn't work in my room and it was freezing and after numerous complaints and being told it was fixed they finally moved me to a new room. For the new room they room key didn't work and the TV had reception issues and that was the best room they had available.
I have stayed here a few times and held conferences here and it has been good but it seems to have gone down hill since last time I stayed.
I've had a terrible night and after almost 3 hours I am still waiting for the issues to be resolved - not the way I had planned to spend my night.
