Great family holiday

We had a absolutely wonderful stay at the swissotel. Could not ask for any better. The staff were fantastic in every way and the location was brilliant. It was an easy walk to Darling Harbour, Circular Quay and the Rocks. The room was very big with a lovely big bathroom which suited us perfectly. Will definitely stay there next time.

Great location Sydney CBD

A great location close to everything, including the bus stop for a free CBD tourist shuttle, and was good value. Friendly, helpful staff, our request for 2 double beds was granted so no horrible fold up bed for my child as she was given in another hotel previously. Great amenities including a pool and spa, and when we visited it was hot, so my young daughter enjoyed the dip [and the special stripey guest towels]. My only, very small small complaint was the air con - stuffy and hot without it on during the night, but even on low, it was freezing. There were no top sheets so it was either having a heavy doona on you, or having nothing on you! Very minor complaint really overall.

Lots of eating options for families wanting early casual dining at the nearby Westfield in Pitt St - food court style as well as good restaurants but very stylish fit outs and fairly new.The Thai one was very good.

Good value

The location is fantastic and I would stay here again. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. When I emailed asking about transfers to the hotel, they promptly responded with a document detailing my options. I would note that it would be good for travelers if the staff keeps informed of the rules for foreigners trying to get tax back at the airport (i.e. you can go to the customs office Before Checking Bags to get inspected and a stamp. This way you can put your stuff in your luggage, rather than carry it the whole trip because the tax refund center - TRS - is after security.) I carried my purchases because no one knew the procedure, or the rules as to what qualifies for tax back.

Sydney's top restaurants likely book up Before you arrive. Do your homework, or ask the concierge before you travel for recommendations, and then book your restaurants asap.

Great Short Break

Arrived at the hotel at 1.00 to find our room was already available and we had been upgraded. Room on 21st floor, fantastic amenities including Nespresso coffee machine. Really comfortable beds and bathroom with both shower and bath. Swimming pool was really busy which was a downside as nowhere to sit - it was a really warm day.

The mall and other stores are just around the corner. This is one of the most shop friendly places in the world and one street over is reported to be the most expensive street in the country. If you are looking to buy, it is all here.
