“Weekend in Sydney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

The service and the amenities of the hotel were very good. The staff at recception could not have friendlier or more helpful however our rooms were not available at the designated check in time. The rooms are very comfortable. The parking was easy. The evening meal we had in the dining room was delicious. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Lovely hotel within easy reach of top attractions and things to do. Staff very friendly and helpful and staff from the concierge to the chamber maid. Room very comfortable and clean with all the usual facilities, tea/coffee and toiletries. Only one downer Breakfast staff seemed to be a bit disorganised, beverages arrived AFTER we had eaten, therefore go prepared to wait awhile.

Room Tip: On 17th Floor, no problem with ours.

I'm sure it's a rare event, but the concierge lost one of my bags between the cab and check-in. Very apologetic, found it hours later, but no compensation. I had to attend my business meeting in decidedly non-business clothes.

Nice rooms, small bathroom, good people watching at the lounge. There's a a more casual bar downstairs at the back door.

It's a bit expensive, likely in line with other similar hotel prices in the downtown core.

While it is nice to read you enjoyed the rooms and outlets of the hotel, may I please apologise for the inconvenience caused due to your missing bag. It is certainly something that does not happen often and I have asked our Chief Concierge to investigate this occurrence.

Thank you again for taking the time to write; I do hope we can welcome you back again soon.

Travelling with a 1 year old can be tough at the best of times and with my wife having to work on Christmas Day in the city we thought we would spend Christmas Eve in the city so that we could have a little Christmas together in the morning.

We chose the Sofitel as the place to stay, and thank God we did, as they we very accommodating and fantastic with the little one.

As you could appreciate, the city is winding down on Christmas Eve, so we dined in-house at the restaurant and the experience was great, food was excellent, and staff helped out entertaining our daughter and going out of their way to keep her entertained.

If you want a hotel that offers excellent service, quality dining experience and staff who are accommodating to your needs, than in my opinion, the Sofitel Sydney is definitely worth considering.

Our stay exceeded our expectations
The staff were all so friendly and helpful, from when we left our car and bags before checking in up to the time we checked out.
The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in and we had the best nights sleep.
We will definitely be back and have already recommended this motel to family and friends.

If you can find a better location in Sydney then you are better than me. The location is great 10 minutes to circular key 5 minutes to the State Library and Government house. Great food and staff. Shopping is a few minutes away and the traditional Sofitel service is provided.

Room Tip: Look for some of the Accor specials and get an upgrade.

This is my third review of the Sofitel Sydney, and after 20 years of staying at the hotel, I am starting to feel that Accor's loyalty program is starting to pay dividends - a very welcome room upgrade on my most recent stay, comfortable bed, balcony doors that open, and the usual spotless room. If I was going to be picky - three clothes hangers in the wardrobe is a bit on the meagre side!

Special mention to the concierge who provided the same exemplary level of service as usual!
