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).

The hotel has a few blind spots.

The hotel has a few blind spots. For example in our double room while it has a double bed does not have two chairs to sit on, only one chair. Also provides only one face cloth instead of two. Any minor requests made were promptly attended to and the room was very clean. Nevertheless an instruction book of things provided by the hotel would have been appreciated as the air conditioning was not intuitive. The same with the operation of the TV. Also places to visit although the hotel has a sales point for trips and cars as well as brochures. The only window was extremely dirty and badly needs a clean on the outside.

This is our second stay at this

This is our second stay at this hotel. We decided to stay again due to the location-a 15 minute brisk walk to Darling Harbour, less than 10 minutes to China Town and Paddy's Market, 5 minutes to the Central Railway Station, and a brisk 30 minutes to Circular Quay. There is plenty of public transport nearby if you don't want to/can't walk. Both times we stayed in a room on the 13th floor, which offers a few extras to the rooms on floors below: welcome chocolates, bathrobe, great coffee from a coffee machine, a few extra touches. The staff at this hotel were polite, friendly, efficient and extremely helpful, particularly all the staff at the concierge desk, who couldn't do enough to assist us. Front of house and housekeeping were also friendly and very helpful. The rooms are typical hotel rooms and the bathrooms aren't lux, but staff and location easily make up for this.

Excellent service.Staff very helpfull.

Excellent service.Staff very helpfull. Location perfect,especially for that weekend away.Central station right over the road.We were there on a busy Saturday night and had no problem getting taxis.The room was a good size,but bathroom a bit dated.Had to pay for the car to be parked there,which should have been pointed out more clearly in the booking enquiry.Will stay there again.

Great location as next to Central

Great location as next to Central Station. There was an issue with maintenance work where there was jack-hammering up till 10.30pm (10/3/2010) in the evening. I tried calling reception for some answers but there was no answer (I guess the lines were jammed up!). Some sort of apology or acknowledgement of inconvenience would be nice!!!

Location excellent: very close

Location excellent: very close to central railway station, within walking distance of Darling Harbour and Opera House etc if you are reasonably fit. Hotel was very clean. Breakfast good quality, with the usual variety of food offered. All hotel staff courteous. Only problem was we had to contact housekeeping on both days of our stay b/c soap, shower caps etc not renewed.

I found the hotel staff efficient

I found the hotel staff efficient and curteous. This hotel is located close to Central Railway Station and buses. Although it is not right in the middle of Sydney, it is only a short walk or bus ride away. I have used this hotel before and would have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends.
