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).

Nice place!

Located right at the Central Station stop, it was convenient to access the entire city (not to mention the airport). The room was very nice and they have a pillow menu that made our sleep more comfortable.

There are a couple of really good coffee places right down the street (Gloria Jean's is one and the other is right next to it) for breakfast... much cheaper than the hotel restaurant.

Great hotel, great location!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Mercure. Everything is clean, bright, modern and busy! The pool is small but perfect for a morning swim, and a nice workout room is handy. The best part of our stay outside of the comfort of the room was the location. We were near buses, trains, and cafes all just a block away! The concierge staff was super amazing. All were knowledgeable, helpful, and took their time to explain where things were and how to get around. Jim was awesome in helping us get to the zoo! Thank you all for a wonderful visit!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the 555 bus to the Rocks. It's free and comes every 10-15 min. It only runs until 3:45 or so, but it's very easy! Goes right up George St. to Circular Quay.

Very obliging, friendly staff.

Very obliging, friendly staff. I have some trouble with outside noise and sleep, but next time will bring earphones and mp3 player, as once I set their radio on a nice classical music program (softly) sleep was much easier. I am from the country, so this would occur anywhere close to the city.

The smart card system of this

The smart card system of this hotel is very good, it saves a lot of time to wait for the room service staff to check the content of the fridge when checking out. Location is also very good, within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in town but far enough to avoid the noise of the busy streets. Quite a few 24-hr convenient stores around the street corner is great for absent-minded travellers.
