Historic exterior with millennial style in Sydney’s business district

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.

Highlights
  • Award winning Bilson's Restaurant
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Extensive health club with body treatments

 

Rooms

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.

Features

Diners at Radisson Blu Plaza Sydney can indulge on mouth-watering culinary specialties, extensive wine list and cutting edge a la carte dining at the award-winning Bentley Restaurant and Bar on site. Tony Bilson, creator of Australian cuisine, has won hearts (and awards) from local and international foodies for the fare at Bilson's Restaurant. Stylish diners reserve well in advance for fine French-inspired lunch and dinner. The menu shifts with the season to include items such as cannelloni of Tasmanian ocean trout, celeriac and spanner crab remoulade. For a casual option, the Bistro Fax Restaurant and Bar serves three meals a day. 

The hotel health club offers an indoor pool, spa, steam room, gymnasium, plus massage and beauty treatment rooms (expect detox wraps, manicures and more).

 Indoor parking facilities are available (fees apply). Wi-Fi is complimentary to all guests.

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.

Stylish & comfortable

A really pleasant Hotel with large rooms and stylish decor. Loved the pool and steam room. Bar and breakfast buffet were all great. A really welcoming hotel. Not too pretentious but quality throughout. Great location if you like to shop and then have a bit of a hideaway.

Fantastic16 Days in Sydney

If you're looking for a centrally located hotel in the CBD, with a pool, Spa & Gym - this is the place to be. Lovely staff, nice accommodations and reasonable for Sydney. Worth upgrading to a biz class room for th full breakfast and drinks/canapés at dinner, as wee as food/coffee during the day. Likely to be my home base in SYD.

A downgrade for an upgrade

I had booked what was described as 'premier room - contemporary - generous size' but, when I checked in, I was inveigled into upgrading to 'Business Class' which included breakfast and snacks for an additional $95 per day. I did this as I had a sick partner. The room I was allocated was small, cramped and dark. I could not go and remonstrate with check-in staff because of the sick partner, but felt that I had paid the extra for a downgrade. I would not choose this hotel again.

Great Weekend for Two!

For such a vibrant place like Sydney, we felt that the Radisson Blu was within easy walking distance to lots of the tourist attractions Sydney has to offer. The hotel gave us solace from the "busyness" that is Sydney, close to some great restaurants also. We found the Hotel to be faultless, clean and the staff very, very, very friendly which made it all the nicer.
