Comfort and Convenience

This hotel was a big surprise. Not your average Hilton. Not that Hiltons are average, but this was a most sophisticated hotel with five star service. Its location could not have been better, unless you have to have a close up view of the Opera House- for that stay at the Four Seasons, but you will fork out a lot more dough that you could have spent at the marvelous shopping in walking distance of the Hilton. Directly across the street is the QVB, Queen Victoria Building, a site worth visiting even if you don't have the dollars to spend at Versace. The room's amenities were very pleasing and very European in style. All in all,I would stay there again. Nice job, Hilton. [...]

Dining tip: In Hotel

I did not have the time to eat at the Brasserie, the hotel's highly acclaimed restaurant on site, but it looked like it a place that would have high on my list if I had. The one thing I would have liked is a few more options for late night dining. After 11PM your only choice in the hotel is room service limited to gourmet-ish pizza. Yes, 11PM is late for dinner but when you are vacation and your evening is packed with entertainment sometimes that is the only chance you get.

Convenient location

I have stayed at a number of hotels in Sydney, and while this will never be my favorite, it is certainly not the worst. Comparatively good rates may be available. Hotel is in a good location for transit--very close to the Town Hall station, so a quick train ride to Airport, Circular Quay, etc. Walking distance to main sights, although it is a fair distance to the Botanical Gardens, Opera House, Ferries, etc. Close to shopping (Pitt street mall). Rooms are small, and they seem to have sacrificed comfort for style: decor is very trendy but not entirely user-friendly. Room was clean. Staff was helpful. Mini bar charges automatically for anything you so much as touch, so be warned, and prices are steep. Internet is very expensive, even for Sydney ($29 for 24 hours). I did not try the restaurants, as they seemed overpriced. Coffee/tea maker in room. Traffic noise was a small issue even on the 28th floor (I could hear the rumble of the buses all night), and would be much worse on lower floors. I would stay here again if I found a very good deal, but not otherwise.

The weekly transit pass is a great deal, and covers ferries, trains and buses (but not additional "gate fee" for the airport).

Hilton Sydney

Hotel was very nice. The location seemed to be right in the middle of the business and shopping district, so not as easy to find restaurants or cafes for food. But it was near subway stations for easy access around Sydney.

Great Stay in Sydney

The service from the front desk staff and the concierge staff was fantastic. The concierge staff helped us find a tour to wine country and the front desk was very responsive to any (small) issues we had. We stayed on the executive lounge floor and found the amenities and service excellent. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
