Our family room was perfect for 2 adults and 1 child. Spa, sauna and steam room much appreciated after our days out in the city. Food and bar excellent. Very helpful and amenable staff. Brilliant location for ICC.

Stayed in a king superior room over Easter weekend. Room had all the usual Holiday Inn amenities, good standard and nice and clean. Bathroom needs an update. Staff throughout the resort were all very friendly and helpful. Evening meal at JB's (at hotel) was also highly recommended and average price.

Holiday Inn is such a great place to have as your base. Especially if you're heading to the ICC as we were. It was barely a 5 minute walk to the venue and as we spent all day there it was very convenient. Room was adequate, bed was comfy, you get a choice of soft or hard pillows so you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. Situated in the southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Qantas Credit Union Arena is right across the road. You can walk to some of Sydney's best restaurants, theatres and shopping complexes. For something a little different, board a ferry or the light rail for sightseeing. Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct and Circular Quay are nearby too. ... more   less
