The location was great. There were so many sites to see just around the hotel area. We were within walking distance of Darling Harbor, many restaurants, the monorail, ferries, shopping - everything was just so convenient.
The staff and concierge
service was above reproach. They were professional, friendly, and helpful in every way.
The hotel was easy to get to by shuttle from the airport, and a shuttle was available at the hotel to take us back to the airport.
If we get a chance to return to Sydney, this would be an ideal place to stay. Very convenient.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Darling Harbor was only about a 10-minute walk from the hotel and offered numerous attractions, shopping and dining opportunities.
This hotel is on the edge of China Town. Every night was a new experience. Sidney can be very pricy. Food in this area was affordable. Shopping in Patty's market is your best value for getting Australian presents cheap. It is right across
the street. There is also a McDonalds. If you hold your computer in the right direction or go use it in the vestibule you can get on ther free McD wifi and save yourself the 55cents a minute charged by the Holiday Inn It is an easy walk to Darling Harbor. The Maritime museum is a well worth visit and is also free .You need to book on the internet or the rooms will cost losts more.
I was satisfied by staying in The Darling Harbor Holiday Inn maybe because I got what I needed and what I had expected. Inside of the hotel, I could not find any differences with any Holiday Inn hotel in US. Although it located in fact in Sydney?s
Downtown. I got high speed Internet access that however could be less expensive (27 AUD per day if unlimited or 0.5 AUD per min). Finally, very good location of the hotel was the most important its advantage for me.
