This is not a 4 star hotel

I stayed one night. I was checked into a "superior" room.(Not even close) It was smoking. I asked for non-smoking. My next room was older and had dirty carpet, the tv remot didn't work, and the hair dryer died. After looking on line I paid $300 dollars and what fealt like a standard room was going for $170. The service was standard when they had time but the employees were too busy to help sufficiently. I was very disappointed and would not stay at this hotel chain again without extensive positive feedback.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

In the Rocks there is a fantastic Wine tasting and Pairing bar/restaurant called Wine Odyssey Australia off of Argyle. Give it a try.

In the center of things.

The Menzies is nice hotel with a great location. Their WiFi policy is out of step with most hotels of their caliber. One half hour daily in the lobby for free then a charge for additional time. The staff are friendly and helpful. Overall I'd recommend the hotel mostly for it's ideal location.

The Really Ugly!

The Menzies Sydney Hotel was aA huge disappointment. Avoid staying at this hotel if at all possible. Some of the following items were reasons why I feel it is important to recommend NOT staying at this hotel: 1. My imital request for a reservation was for a room with 2 beds (size didn't matter). upon check-in I was advised they didn't have a room available with 2 beds (I was traveling with my 21 year old son). I asked if a roll-away bed was available, and eventually they agreed to put one in the room. 2. Upon our return back to the hotel the same day, but later on that evening I decided to stop by the front desk to ask a question. It was at that time I was informed it was against hotel policy to put a second bed in our room due to the size of the room (fire hazard). So, I asked (again) to put us in a larger room with 2 beds. Evenutally, they did. 3. When we entered the "bigger" room, I smelt a horrible odor. I knew immediately it was mold. When I entered the bathroom I smelled the shower curtain and confirmed the smell indeed was coming from the molded shower curtain. 4. I contacted the front desk to demank a "clearner" room. Eventually, we got another room. I found "hair" on the bathroom floor. The room was dark due to poor lightening. The TV was less than 12 inches. The remote control for the TV was the worse I've ever seen (in poor condition). 5. The maid left a wet towel on my bed instead of taking it. 6. The fee for inroom WIFI is AUD 11 (close to USD12) for the first hour. But, if you go to the lobby, you get 30 mins ONLY of free WIFI. 7. Breakfast is AUD 30/person. The food was horrible! There is no cook to make fresh eggs, so I doubt the scramble eggs they put on the buffet were made fresh (they looked and tasted like powdered eggs). 8. Hotel had no information availabe for New Years Eve. I had to search myself although I asked the staff for assistance. 9. No Airport Link schedules were made available although the hotel is right across the street from the metro to the Airport. We ended missing the stop on the train because when I asked someone at the ticket window in the metro, he forgot to mention I needed to change trains.
