The RAdisson Blu Sydeny, in an excellent downtotwn location, just accross the road from Wynayrd rail station which serves Sydney Airport. Hany for Circular Quay and all the sights of Sydney, you literally walk out of the hotel turning right and you have a fabulous view of the Harbour Bridge. The rooms are typically Radisson stylish, and comfortable. Good large bathrooms with a great stream of hot water for the walk in shower. I found the dining area for breakfast a bit smaller than I had imagined it would be, but hey it is only a short time you spend there. Staff were friendly but not intrusive, helpful but not gushing. Excursions and taxis were arranged with ease, and complimentary drinks were provided when the friends we were travelling with were given a fresh room having been allocated one not of the standard they had booked. Good sauna, jacuzzi and steam in the Spa, massage expensive and the pool whilst not good for laps was great place in which to relax.

Stayed for 4 nights with a sis on holiday to explore Sydney. I absolutely loved the location considering it was walking distance to all the iconic sites in Sydney. The room had everything available including an umbrella, which came in handy when it poured the last night we stayed. The staffs were really friendly and their service was excellent. Also, the room had wifi available which was awesome. The only thing I felt misinformed about was the cost to make local calls. I was informed that i was about a dollar to make local calls but when we checked out, I got hit w a very heavy phone bill and the receptionist informed me that it was a dollar for a local NON-MOBILE phone.

Having stayed at many 5 star hotels throughout Asia and Australia, this hotel was disappointing.

Beside the location, my wife and I couldn't believe that there was no complimentary water in the room, the decor was tired and shabby (first floor) and our "window" looked out into a central dirty atrium area with very little natural light. Even with midday sun. The room was very dark. In addition the food was bland and mediocre and there was even a five dollar charge for room service delivery.

If you want a decent five star hotel in Sydney we would recommend the Intercontinental where we previously stayed.

The staff were very helpful, but overal not impressed.

Dear Dm0911,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay at the Hotel.

I was disappointed to learn you were not happy with your room allocation during your stay at the Hotel. Our reception staff should be confirming room preferences on arrival, and I have asked the Front Office Manager to carry out further training with her team to ensure this is not an issue going forward.

Further to this I was concerned to learn of dissatisfaction with the food being bland, bottled water not being complimentary and the tray charge applied to In Room Dining orders. I have passed on your comments to the Executive Chef and the Food and Beverage Manager for their review. I apologise for the disappointment these matters caused, and I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Hotel when you next travel to Sydney.

Sincerely,

Peter Tudehope
General Manager
Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney

I booked a secret hotel deal and was not overly thrilled to find out that the hotel was Radisson Blu Plaza, having stayed there before and finding the room to be incredibly pokey for the rate I paid. However, I was pleasantly surprised this time around.

Our room on level 9 was spacious with king bed and a large bathroom with separate bath and shower.

Room service is expensive but the service is prompt and they were able to cater for my special dietary needs.

Location is right in the heart of the CBD and walking distance to Pitt Street Shopping mall & Circular Quay.

I wouldn’t pay rack rates for this hotel but would recommend staying here if you are able to secure a discounted rate.

Overall, this hotel met my expectations of a 5 star CBD hotel.
