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.
The Swissotel is great value, in a great location. It is also located in a shoppers heaven area of the city. Go for it.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Darling Harbour, a vibrant and entertaining area of Sydney, is a short but beautiful 5-minute walk from the hotel. The area is not as popular as the Sydney standards, but is not to be missed if you are in town for more than a day.
The hotel was very accesible, the decoration was modern, very comfortable. We travel a lot and this hotel was really good for the price we paid. The employees were very friendly and helpfull. We really enjoy the stay. Hotel for two days before
a cruise and planned to stay in another hotel after the cruise. Since we liked it we stay again in it for three more days after the cruise. I recommend.
