Room with a view

Only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer. Asked for a view of the Opera House and got it. Check in was quick, the staff courteous and friendly, the room large and well appointed. Did not have time to use the pool or gym.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk to Circular Key about three blocks and buy a Day Tripper or Weekly Travel Pass. This will give you unlimited rides on the ferries, buses and trains. It's a great way to get around and just riding the ferries is a pleasant way to explore greater Sydney.

A great place to stay

You can't beat the location for walking and using the ferries or trains or even the buses. It was so easy to walk to most of the places we wanted to visit, plus it is only a block away from the ferries.

PERFECT ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND

We stayed there for our anniversary and because we were going to the Beach Boys concert at the Opera House. It was a perfect location as it was only ten minutes walk to the Opera House, close to Circular Quay station and The Rocks area and not far from the CBD shops. The hotel was very busy and full but we were very happy with everything. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent, not cheap but food and service were 10/10.

Location impossible to improve upon!

This hotel is pretty much what you expect from a Marriott - nice rooms, clean, etc., but the thing that sets this one apart is its location! Situated less than a block from Circular Quay, you can get anywhere in minutes on foot or by train or bus - and I mean anywhere. Buy a transit pass for however long you will be visiting, and you will be zipping around like a native. We didn't dine at the hotel or use fitness or pool facilities, so I have no comments on them, but if I return to Sydney on business OR pleasure, I'm heading back to the Harbour Marriott. Do not confuse this location with the other Marriott, which is quite off the beaten path in my opinion. The Concierge is excellent, so use him/her! Don't pay extra for the Opera House view - you'll be seeing it plenty anyway. I had only one complaint, and that is two days out of five I returned to the room to find it had not been made up yet. When I called they immediately sent a tag team, but it was a bit inconvenient for the few minutes they were there. But that was only a mild problem, and it would not stop me from returning. Viewers can ignore my Amenities and Dining ratings, as we used none. But the survey requires and answer...

A transit pass is a must, and there is a transit kiosk a shot walk from the Marriott. If you tell them how long your visit will be, where you prefer to go, they will suggest the package that fits. I paid approximately $45 for a week, and I wore it out on the trains, ferries, and buses. Great value, and everyone is really helpful.
