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.

Anniversary Getaway

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mercure. We arrived super early and were given the option to upgrade for $20 a night for a room with a view. We thought it was worth it as the view was beautiful and even better we were able to check in at 7:30 am rather than having to wait until 2pm. That was great after our long flight! The room was comfortable and the hotel was in walking distance to the central train station which goes anywhere you need to go. There was also a little breakfast place out back that was great! The staff were friendly and helpful as well. The restaurant was not very impressive and while the bar had a pizza night with specials when we went for a later night snack at 9pm they were sold out. Overall we had a great visit and would highly recommend this hotel to other travelers.

The visit Down Under, reasonably priced

The staff were more than helpful. They were exceptionally pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was walkable to all attractions and very convenient to buses and trains.
