Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. Situated in the Southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Sydney Entertainment Centre right across the road. You can walk to some of Sydney's best restaurants, theatres and shopping complexes. For something a little different, board a ferry, monorail or light rail for sightseeing. Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct, Circular Quay or the airport are nearby too.

Found all the staff pleasant to

Found all the staff pleasant to deal with motel nice and clean. The motel was a bit hard to find the 1st time we stayed but one quick call to reception and were there quickly. Very centrally located to all Darling Harbour attractions and a short bus ride to Circluar Quay and the Opera House. Parking is convenient at the Entertainment Centre car park for a reasonable rate.

I havent had enough time to explore

I havent had enough time to explore all the hotel's facilities, but I would say that it contains all basics you would expect of that kind of hotel. Good location, handy to Chinatown and Darling Harbour nitelife. Clean, room service is prompt. Checkin and out are fast. Overall is good.

Staff were not very helpful and

Staff were not very helpful and appeared disinterested in guests. Concierge unable to provide umbrellas when we needed to go out to and it was raining heavily. Parking was not at the hotel but across the road in the Entertainment centre. Prices too expensive and then after paying the hotel for parking I still had to fork out an extra $27.00 the car park.

The rooms needed a bit of updating

The rooms needed a bit of updating but were still clean. The receptionist gave us the wrong price for both parking and the airport shuttle bus, but the concierge was very helpful. 11am checkout is generous, but being woken up at 10am to a 'minibar' person entering our room was not appreciated! They should not do this until after 11am checkout time. Is in a good location if you love asian food and paddys markets are just on the corner, and darling harbour is very close. However if you want a good night's sleep when an event is scheduled at the Entertainment Centre - good luck.

Hotel was clean & extremely well

Hotel was clean & extremely well located for what we were doing in Sydney. The room was good, reception was quick when booking out but there were a couple of issues. 1) The queue to get in for breakfast was very long & took over 15 minutes to get a table. 2) when we went to concierge to have our parking ticket validated we were going to pay by EFTPOS which was subject to a charge so we decided to pay cash, the concierge had to take our money over to reception to get change which took much longer than necessary.
