Large, modern hotel Ideally situated for Cirrcular Quay, Buses and Wynyard Railway Station.

Not cheap, but only to be expected in such a popular place and handy location. Staff more than friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would have no hesitation in returning in the future.

Hotel in Auckland Airport

It so close to the International Termainal that after I missed a flight to Sydney, I was able to catch the next one. The Breakfast was expensive and no option for coffe & toast, or light breakfast. Only Buffet. When you're not that hungry, you don't want to spend $35 for breakfast.

Satisfactory hotel with great location

Overall the hotel was fine. Problems we found with hotel room was there was only one chair in room, so one of us had to sit on bed. Bathroom was small and had very limited space around the sink. Eating at the hotel was very costly. Location was great, you could walk to made attractions.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Purchase your sightseeing trips before you go. This way you plan & know how much you are spending. Expect to spend a considerable amount for food as the the exchange rare for US Dollar is low and food prices are high. However, look around for places with cheaper food items to eat. We did not shop at retail stores because of prices.

The Menzies Sydney

The hotel is in a perfect and quiet location, yet centrally located with old European gracious charm. I used it to catch up on jet lag sleep before moving on to Macquarie University for a conference.

Great Hotel, Great location

The lobby and rooms were luxurious and spotless. The location is unbeatable (would expect to pay $200 for a similar room in NY or LA)The only problem is the a/c was not working and the weather was unseasonably warm.

Pick up a Sydney Saver brochure at the info desk at the airport. It has coupons for the airport shuttle (door to door for $12 pp) Opera House, Harbor cruise and many other attractions. We estimate it saved us over $200.

Very Friendly front desk staff

This is a great location near Circular Quay and Darling Harbour - both are within walking distance. My only disappointment was the cleanliness and state of the bathroom.

Awesome location!

Taxis are expensive in Sydney. This is an ideal location for taking the train from the airport. It is also within a few blocks of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. I felt safe walking alone at night. It would have been nice to have more hotel staff to help with luggage etc. Also, there is a charge for internet use...silly. Otherwise, it was fine.

Great location, awesome breakfast

Overview: Just ok for the price. Walking distance to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay (Opera House). Really nice full breakfast buffet. Problems: We had a little issue with a bug in our room on our last night and the night manager took care of it personally. He also compensated us fairly for the experience. Pros: -Great Location -Nice included breakfast -Good staff Cons: -Pricey compared to alternatives in the area -Costly internet options, however 30 mins/15mB of free wifi in lobby every 24 hours
