At first glance it appears the Radisson Plaza Hotel shows her finest side; a grand sandstone exterior dating back to the 1800s was once a bank and newspaper office before becoming a five-star hotel. Yet the interiors of the Radisson Plaza impress anew. Muted layers of wood, glass and stone play on the hotel's historic features. The property caters to business travelers with free Wi-Fi and a multilingual staff ready to tackle any need. Located in the central business district, guests can walk to Hyde Park, the Opera House and public transportation.

Cozy guest rooms boast a sunny ambiance with shades of tan, gold and white. Big windows are dressed with thick taupe curtains. The hotel's 336 rooms and 26 suites are furnished with signature beds, a moveable blonde wood desk with ergonomic chair, flat screen TV and a deep tub. All guests enjoy free Wi-Fi access in every room.

Great staff!

The radisson blu is located within easy walking distance to Sydney harbour, darling harbour, and the metro. There are plenty of ezmart stores, subway, pie face etc for quick bite around the hotel. The rooms are comfortable with high ceilings. Good central location to all of the attractions

A welcome stay in the city of Sydney

Being a local, i just stayed at the hotel as it was just for a romantic getaway. It was the top floor we received with a bottle of Sparkling on arrival. Not sure why we got the champas but i was happy to take it. If you were a visitor to Sydney you would be happy with its location close to circulary quay where you get a ferry to the Zoo or Manly.

Winner Hotel in Sydney Central Business District

Spent 5 nights to start our 3-week Australia vacation and was very pleased with everything, especially location, room comfort, free wifi, fitness center, and great water pressure in the shower. Concierge was helpful on several occasions. Short walk to the harbor, opera house, the Rocks (definitely visit) and great shopping and restaurants.

For very casual breakfast or lunch, the food court at near 1 Martin Place offers great variety, quality and reasonably low prices, especially compared with hotel restaurants.

Great Staff

We were actually in the hotel for very short periods of time. It was very well located, clean, and comfortable. The only negative would be the bathroom layout, I found the sink and faucet controls to be very nice to look at but somewhat hard to use. The staff was absolutely top notch!
