One of the best city hotels we have stayed at

Would recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
The friendly welcome was well received when we checked in late at night after a long flight. Throughout our week long stay the helpfulness and politeness of all staff from reception to concierge and cleaning team was exceptional. The room was well sized given the city centre location, and the bathroom was large with an amazing shower. The indoor pool and steam room was a nice place to relax with a good sized jacuzzi. We didn't use the gym but it looked in good shape. We can recommend dinner in the bar. It was a pleasant environment, and we appreciated the fact that there was a vegetarian option. (The risotto was huge!). For sightseeing in Sydney the location is perfect being a few minutes from Circular Quay, The Rocks and Opera House in one direction, and good shopping and restaurants in George Street and Pitt Street in the other.

Winner Hotel in Sydney Central Business District

Would recommend Wed, Mar 14, 2012
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.

Dining

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.

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!

Nice Hotel

Would recommend Sun, Nov 13, 2011
The staff are wonderful and very attentive. I got bumped up to executive level, because they were out of other rooms when I arrived. The pillows could be softer, but I never took advantage of their pillow service. No automatic check-out. Nice buildings, modern rooms, quiet, good location. I would definitely stay there again. Breakfast buffet is quite good.

Last Night in Australia

Would recommend Sat, Dec 11, 2010
We picked this hotel to spend our last night in Australia after arriving from Ayers Rock. We read the reviews about the Sydney airport hotels and none sounded too apealing. A hotel within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of The Rocks and Circular Quay was just what we wanted for a memorable conclusion to our 3 week adventure. The Radisson is in ideal location. We had an atrium room that was very nicely appointed. I would definitely stay here again.

Time saver

We did not realize that we could have checked in on-line ahead of time for our international flight (to the US). This would have saved at least one hour waiting in the queue at the airport. Also, the taxi ride to the international terminal on a Sunday morning was 1 hour, not the usual half hour travel time, so allow additional time.
