“What a Nice Thing To Do!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Had a business trip to Sydney last week and had forgotten the cufflinks. When I was checking out, the staff noticed and offered to lend me a pair! I believe it was the General Manager of the Hotel Mr. Paul Canning that gave me his, pulled them right off his own shirt! Thanks Paul, will be mailing them back soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are very good, however, the hotel is showing a little age and needs a bit of a spring...

This is probably the best hotel in North Ryde.

Location:
5 mins walk to Macquire Park train station. 15-20 mins walk to Macquire shopping centre.
30 mins drive to the city.

Room is great - very clean and spacious.

Staffs are friendly, breakfast is not too bad. There is a restaurant right next to the hotel. Apart from that, there is nothing much around that area.

Stay here only if you are visiting North Ryde. Else stay in the city.

Thank you very much for your feedback on trip advisor, we certainly appreciate your efforts and business.

I would also like to take this opportunity to share some 'to do activities' in the areas. One of the Sydney's upcoming suburbs Chatswood is 15 minute's away in taxi or 10 minutes on train. Chatswood has two major shopping centers Chatswood Chase and Westfield. There are a number of Chinese (including Cantonese), Japanese and Korean restaurants and eateries. The Chatswood Club, located on Help Street adjacent to Pacific Highway, is a venue hall which caters to weddings, birthdays, cocktail parties, and other age-appropriate festivities.

Other activities in the area include Lane Cove National Park where you can have a picnic, go for a bush walk or bike ride, hire a canoe.

Macquarie Shopping Centre is only a two minute drive from the hotel where they have Ice skating, movie cinemas and specialty shops.

We also have our brochure stand located in our lobby that has a great range of tours and activities available in the local and Sydney area.

Once again thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcome you back

Warm Regards

The location was perfect for us for what we needed in Sydney and it was good to have accommodation that was clean and modern to stay in for our quick weekend trip.

Checkin was busy when we arrived at 4pm but the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The room was clean and modern, with plenty of room. The bathroom had a lovely big double size shower, but no bath. It was a little tricky to manoeuvre around the door to get to the toilet, but not so bad.

We ordered room service shortly after we arrived which was delivered quickly. However, the food was cold and the chips were soggy. Again though, the service was lovely.

We had breakfast in the restaurant in the morning. There was a good range for continental type breakfasts with many cereals and breads available. The cooked breakfast cost a fair bit more for what you get, and given I needed gluten free I needed to get this and I am sure I didn't get my money's worth. But no matter, the service was lovely and a lot of attention was paid to my nearly 2 year old son which helped get us through the meal!

Parking was provided free of charge on the weekend, which was also good.

Overall, a convenient and pleasant stay.

I am pleased to inform you that our hotel has rooms both with walk-in showers and combined bath and showers. I do understand the room you stayed in was a shower only, however if you would like a bath tub for future stays you could request one at the time of reservation or directly with me on ‘sudhir.yadav@courtyard.com‘.

We also have loft suites available in hotel which is New York style split bed and living room setup with 1.5 bathrooms. The bedroom bath room is very spacious with big bath tub and there is half bathroom in living room.

I am extremely sorry for the experience you had with our quality of room service food and full buffett breakfast options. I have taken the liberty to share your comments with our Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef who I shall work with, to ensure all the necessary actions are implemented to improve the options available for our full breakfast. For all our guest who have gluten free requirements, our chefs can prepare dishes specific to order given we are contacted before arrival. We also offer special gluten free menu for lunch and dinner.

It is only through such feedback that we are able to improve the services and facilities we provide. I do thank you again for taking the time to share your experiences as Marriott does appreciate all of our guests’ valuable feedback as it is essential to us and I am really looking forward hopefully welcoming you back to our beautiful property again one day.

My wife and i stayed at this hotel over the weekend as we were given tickets for Gold Class cinema at Macquarie centre.The staff very friendly and helpful.
The rooms were clean and modern, the only possible complaint was that the bathroom was very small. Had breakfast in the restaurant which had a great variety for a buffet brekky. I have stayed at a few motels over the last few years and had some awful service and rooms. Believe me when I say the staff went out of their way to be helpful even to the point of finding a parking spot when we arrived back from the movies. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We chose top floor balcony room.....

We stayed here to attend a sporting competition. The hotel and area were very busy as it was the same weekend as the Bledisloe Cup. For us this hotel was conviently located near were the sporting competition was being held. The room was comfortable, spacious and had all we needed for a two night stay. The room was also very quiet.
One of the best parts of our stay were the helpful staff. We hadn't made any reservations for dinner on the Saturday and they helped ring around some restaurants to find us a place to eat.
We had a special weekend package price which included breakfast - and there was so much to choose from. One of the best hotel breakfast offerings I have seen.
Parking around the hotel is also free on the weekend.
The hotel is situated around businesess and office blocks and is in the suburbs so may not suit those wanting to be close to the city. However for the hotel more than suited us for what we needed and I would defintely stay here again if I needed tobe this side of town again.
