Perks for kids and adults in Sydney’s city center

The award-winning Mercure Sydney was recently repackaged to cater to families and business travelers. The hotel has a fresh, modern look with plenty of perks for a mid-range hotel--kids under 15 stay and eat breakfast free! Add eight conference rooms, a foot-friendly downtown address and a pool and this renovated hotel starts to shine. Central Station is located around the corner from the hotel for those traveling by train.   

Highlights
  • Kids stay and eat breakfast free
  • Downtown location within walking distance to major attractions
  • Eight conference rooms
Rooms

Each of the hotel's 517 rooms applies geometric principles to design. Think sleek blonde wood paneling and pillows of all sizes splashed with reds and greens outfitting hotel beds. Rooms also feature mood lighting, comfortable desks with high-speed Internet access (fees apply), air conditioning, mini-fridge and understated bathrooms.

Features

The hotel features a gym and indoor heated rooftop pool for everyone's fitness and entertainment needs.

The sustainable Four Elements Restaurant serves breakfast and attracts a theater crowd for dinner. Items like Hunter Gold grain-fed scotch fillet please sophisticated palates. The breakfast buffet is an enormous spread and kids under 15 eat free. The bar serves light lunches, snacks and loose-leaf tea and coffee.

The hotel offers room service and has a car rental agency onsite, plus parking (fees apply) and Internet access (fees apply).

Good value

Mercure at Railway Square is very convenient for those using public transport with bus connections 50m from the front door and rail ~300m. Parking under the hotel was $29 a day. Our room on the 14th floor had obviously been refurbished recently and was excellent, very clean [as you would expect] and well appointed. Restaurant buffet breakfast was good [not brilliant but good]. Staff were pleasant and thoughtful. It was a little disconcerting to find [for a prepaid booking] that my credit card was debited $101.40 on checking before any other charges had been incurred. I am assured by the Mercure that charge will be reversed within a few days, mmm....

While the Mercure has a bar we like the Crystal Palace Hotel across the road which has more of a "local" feel about it. Food was good value however the bistro has changed hands. We haven't tried it so can't say yes/no for the new team.

Good value for money

The location is perfect, very close to the central station and Chinatown. The standard queen room is not spacious and very basic but just about right for two people for two nights. Got an offer to stay for an extra night for only $99 on Easter Monday night, but unfortunately I could not stay one more night. Would be happy to stay here again!

Very convenient to train. Great service.

I needed a hotel near Sydney Central station for an early train. We were relocating from another hotel and arrived to find our room was already available at 11am. Travelling with a friend, we had booked a room with 2 double beds. At no extra cost. Bonus. I was excited to discover they had a pillow menu and my V pillow arrived in less than half an hour of my phone call. Likewise, room service arrived with a short wait. Staff at reception and concierge were very helpful. I would definitely book this hotel again.
