    We totally loved our stay at the hotel. Was so convenient for us. We had gone to the Food and Wine festival for the weekend, so it was a 5 min walk to the Entertainment Centre. Went shopping. All transport so handy. We had dinner in Darling Harbour, and the fireworks was spectacular. Staff were very helpful, and friendly. Our room was clean, bed was comfy. We will definitely go back to stay.

    Superb

    Central location, easy to walk to many things, we were going to Food & Wine show so this was ideal Good sized room, good facilities

    The restaurant was not too good, limited table seating , bar seating I feel is not too good for meals. Music was far too loud and there weren;t any seats where the volume could be avoided consequently we did not stay for a meal An alternative should be available

    We were upgraded which was wonderful. We loved the view of the ferris wheel at night. There were also fireworks in Darling Harbour. The pool had a stunning view as well.

    The cooked breakfast was a let down. Not worth the price. You can get much better at Darling Harbour.

    Staff very helpful and attentive.

    Bed springs were very loud. Even gentle sex sounded like there was an orgy going on.

    The bed was comfortable the room was good and being able to have a child up to 16 stay in room for free using existing beding

    The room service was slow it took an hour to get a jug of milk at 7.30pm I thought would be quiet time . I think also for the price it should include breakfast .

    The catering staff were the only bright light at this hotel. The catering staff were excellent, particularly the young guy who seems to run the show.

    This hotel is a shocker. The concierge staff that I dealt with were rude. Firstly, as I was checking-in, I gave my name and they stated that their was no record of my booking. After 10-15 minutes, they found it and blamed Booked.net for getting my name wrong...The room was, at best, a 3 star room. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the next room. As for the breakfast that was included? Well they had a record for one of the two nights that breakfast was included... No record, no breakfast. Don't waste your time staying here, you'll regret it.

    Rooms are good. Excellent location for Entertainment Centre, Chinatown & Darling Harbour.

    Drive to parking station is a nuisance and has no all weather cover. Lifts very slow.
