The hotel is perfectly located to accomadate the vacation travler. Almost everything in Sydney is within walking distance and that is what I was looking for. The room was without flaw and the service was first rate and friendly. The pool was clean and well maintained. The exercise room was clean well serviced.

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.

Not too bad of a hotel

Great location, though this is NOT a 5-star hotel. It was not cool that I had to pay for internet....not cool.

Great Location in the center of downtown

The hotel has all that we required for our stay. The location was an easy walk to the Rocks, Darling, Oxford area and shopping. It is located above a Meyer dept store and has a very limited street level footprint so it is easy to miss upon arrival.

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.

Swissotel Sydney

Pay to stay on the Executive Club floors. Internet access, free breakfast, bigger rooms, and complimentary drinks and hors de vors at 5:30. Our room was twice as big as the room we had at the Sydney Four Seasons. The bar staff was not attentive. The Concierge booked us front row table at a great open air restaurant with a view of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge. Would definitely stay with Swissotel again.

nice lux hotel

Excellent location, in heart of city and action. Hotel was very nice, very comfortable. Little annoying having to take a elevator every time to get to hotel lobby(3th floor?)and then different elevator to get to room...also, the concierge could have been more helpful, more friendly at times. Would certainly stay there again esp if great internet deal found....

Awesome!

The location of Swissotel made it possible for us to visit top attractions on foot, like the Sydney Opera House and Darling Harbor. We walked everywhere, had a great time popping into hidden shopping gems, and save much on cab fare. The PBJ staff were also extremely friendly. Our favorite wait-staff made our dinners some of the best we've had.

Walk around the corner to the Art House hotel and enjoy live acoustic rock music or live jazz. The scene is awesome and the ambiance is unbeatable.
