great location

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2009
loved the location, 5 minute walk to darling harbour, 10 minute walk to circular quay, 2 minute walk to hyde park, right next to the tower, a quick walk through the QVB to the town hall rail station pitt st market is currently being renovated, so there was some extra noise and construction vehicles, but it looks like the future development should be gorgeous

Nightlife hint

walk to darlinghurst or surry hills for dining after 6pm... everything closes early in the CBD

Great service, great hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jun 27, 2009
Great hotel and the staff was extremely helpful and nice, specially the concierge. We really enjoyed this hotel -- great location if you want to do things around Darling Harbor. A bit of a walk to Circular Quay, Opera House and the Botanical gardens. We were quite impressed with the staff and service of this hotel -- had a great stay!!!!

Attractions

Short walk to Darling Harbor, Aquarium, Wildlife World, Sydney Tower (across the street, could see it from our window).

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.

The hotel was cost effective and the place was right down town close to train station, legal office, the waters, etc.

Would Definitely Stay Here Again!!!

Would recommend Sat, Jun 6, 2009
Here are some highlights from my stay at the Swissotel on Market Street in Sydney: 1)Location: The Swissotel is right in the heart of Sydney's CBD. Circular Quay is only a 10-15 minute walk (ferries to Taronga Zoo depart from here). 2)Rooms: My room was very clean, but the bed was VERY firm. I prefer a softer bed, so this was disappointing for me. The ~26" LCD TV had all the basics and more. 3)In-Room Internet: A big disappointment. The Swissotel charges ~25AUD/24 hours for Internet in guest room, and the speed is very slow (about 0.5Mb/sec). TIP: You can get a free Internet connection in the lobby/restaurant/bar area after check-in. This is achieved through a code a guest gets with their room key. 4)Pool/Exercise Area/Spa: The pool at the Swissotel is excellent! It is heated and is suitable for laps. Also, there is a hot tub out by the pool. The exercise room is small but adequate with 2 stationary bikes, 2 treadmills, and an elliptical trainer. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Sydney if I get the same great rate from Orbitz. When I booked in June 2009, Orbitz was running a special at this hotel which could not be beat!

Money saver

BIG TIP: If you need to get to/from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, take the AirportLink train to/from St. James station. St. James is only three blocks away from the hotel, and the cost one-way to/from the airport is 15.20 AUD (a return ticket is discounted). Also, the AirportLink train runs around every 15 minutes. I took a taxi to the Swissotel from Sydney's International terminal and wound up paying a tremendous sum!

nice lux hotel

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
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....

Shopping hint

hotel is in heart of city - minutes away from everything - shopping, restaurants, parks, other sites and attractions

Loved the Hotel. Great location. Friendly people. The only bad thing was the power going out and not knowing why for three hours and the loss of hot water for half a day due to the loss of power the day before.

Shopping hint

It had all of the hints. shopping dining attractions all with in five min of the hotel.

Not kid friendly!

Would not recommend Mon, Mar 30, 2009
I would never recommend this hotel for anyone bringing children. The pool is not heated and so you can't play in it. The room is small. There is noisy construction going on all day. The lobby restaurant poisoned my young daughter by giving her my alcoholic drink and management did nothing to compensate for this nor did they show concern for their grave mistake. Since she drank the drink before I realized, she could have been badly poisoned. The two good points are that the hotel is centrally located and they gave us an early check in.

Dining

There is a food court basically under the hotel which you get to right around the corner from the hotel.

Great location, but hotel is a bit dingy. Was told by orbitz if we upgraded to the advantage room it would include free breafast and internet. It was an additional $25 per day. We did get a coffee maker in our room for the extra price. The staff was great, and very helpful.

First trip to Sydney. Hotel is 5mins away from St. James Train Station. 2mins away from Monolrail Station. Central location to Sydney Harbour or Darling Harbor. Hotel Lobby on 8th Floor, private and quiet. Lobby bar and restaurant lovely and good value for money. Staff very friendly and profesional. Laundry facility in Hotel. Beautiful clean room and bathroom. Theatre across the street. Cafe next door for light breakfast. Losts of restaurants at the Rocks or Darling Harbour. Plenty to do and see. Great Vacation

Shopping hint

Go to Paddy's Market, China town on the monorail. Get the Day pass and tour all the different locations and use the coupons at the restaurants. Great underground shopping that leads to the Queen Victoria building. Good souvenier stores at Darling Harbor and Quays.
