Awesome!

Would recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2009
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.

Nightlife hint

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.

Swissotel Location

Would recommend Tue, Sep 1, 2009
The hotel is excellecntly located in the middle of CBD, it is around 20 minutes from the airport by train (then a 5 minute walk from St James Square). It's a 10 minute walk to Darling Harbour, Harbourside and the Star City Casino, a 15 minute walk to; Circular Quay, the Rocks and Central station. The hotel is located within 5 minutes of all the major shopping centres the QV building, the Vicotria Gallery's, Pitt Street mall and David Jones. If you don't mind walking the Swissotel Sydney is the best place to stay, with great staff who will take a personnal interest in you, with a good service, pool and a half decent gym, it is without a doubt if money is not too much of an object, Swissotel Sydney is the best place to stay. By far the bets hotel i've stayed in, and i've been travelling for 5 years all over the world.

Dining

The best restaurants are by the quay side at either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay, with both lunch time and dinner specials, Sydney is relatively cheap place to eat as long as you look around.

My sad story about Swissotel-Sydney

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 25, 2009
I have stayed with Swissotel in many different countries and considered this hotel as a good one, but after my stay in Swissotel-Sydney I have changed my opinion. Firstly, neither Orbitz nor Swissotel's website at time of booking informed guests about a MAJOR construction site just across the street. Secondly, reception staff failed to mention that room #1514 will be directly across the construction site. Jack hammer started to work at 7.05 AM on Saturday! The noise was so loud that neither pillows nor ear plugs (or both) were working. When I stepped out of the room I met several other patrons talking loudly in the hallway about this situation. I forgot to mention that we flu across the world (over 23 hours) the night before...Subsequent call went to the hotel operator who promised a "very, very quiet" room as soon it becomes available. We were moved across the hall. We did several hours of wondering around like zombies after not getting enough sleep we arrived back to the hotel and found some chocolates and a bottle of vine. Room was OK, but we were not! This experience was not one I expected from Swissotel. After 2 nights we moved away to another hotel which was NOT booked through Orbitz and it was NOT a Swissotel! LOL Enjoy Sydney!

Dining

Short walk from the hotel is a very good Greeck restaurant - Medusa! Dinner for 2 including vino was about AU$150.00.

Construction noise was a bummer

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2009
Pros: Great location, friendly staff, clean room. Con: Construction noise from across the road was really loud and started at around 7 am each morning, even on Saturday.

excellent hotel, some unexpected charges

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2009
The swissotel has a great location, fabulous breakfasts and very nice rooms. There is no indication in your room however that there is a charge for local calls and a local call to a cell phone cost over $20. I think that is excessive.

Great Hotel!

Would recommend Sun, Aug 16, 2009
I read all of the reviews prior to booking this hotel... To sum it up, I don't think you'll find much better for the price in Sydney. The location is perfect! Right next to the train/monorail you need to get the big spots, bus stop for outlying locations such as Bondi, and near a food court for less expensive dining options. By American standards my actual sleeping area may have been a tad small, but the bathroom was unbelievable! Full tub and glass shower-awesome. To all those that complained about the bed, I'm not sure what to say. Yes, it is firm, but they have the pillow menu right by the bed to help correct that. Fitness center, spa, pool, sauna are wonderful! Used daily while I was there. Can't comment on the restaurant, as it is a tad pricey and I avoided. Overall, a perfect location in Sydney.

Money saver

Don't get off at the Town Square train station. Take the St. James station to/from the airport. It's only about a block farther walk to the hotel and will save you a few bucks.
