great place to stay. So central!Comment of L. Joy , New Zealand the 2014-04-19
"Excellent All Round"
Had a very good two night stay at the hotel. Checking in was very professional, no hassles and quick. Room was excellent on the 27th floor and the lifts were fast. Breakfast was excellent and the staff there are extremely attentive. Had lunch at the downstairs 'tapas restaurant' and again it was excellent and the service could not be faulted. I had stayed two months before in a Heritage Room which was very large and had magnificent high ceilings. If you go to Sydney and stay the Westin, I would recommend to stay in such a room. My only small complaint about the room was that it left in too much light too early in the morning.
"Great choice. Highly recommend. Good location. Great service."
We had a great stay at the Westin Sydney. We are SPG members and were treated well. We were able to check into our room early as our flight arrived around 8am. We were also able to check out late as our flight departed in the evening. We appreciate that and will continue to stay at SPG brands if we are treated well. We had a nice room with a very large bathroom and walk in closet. We had a pretty view of the plaza. The location is good. Central Business District Sydney. Easy to get to the ferries, botanical garden and opera house. Concierge was helpful. I ran every morning and upon my return was met with a towel and cold bottle of water.
Internet was barely 1meg, that's like having 1 minute of hot water. In today's technology needs you would assume a hotel would provide adequate speeds. At Fraser Suites we had 30 megs down which was excellent, in Boston at home I have 150 meg. Everything else was decent, our room was decent size but overlooking an interior courtyard, no outside window. The hotel is clean and nice and very centrally located. The service staff was excellent and the building next door has a great food court in the basement with sushi, pizza etc.
"Only perfect with its location"
A very old-styled hotel to me but location-wise is unbeatable. Yet I am still impressed by how it merged with half modern wing and half historical wing as previous the building is the postal office. Room is fair and up-to-standard but I like their breakfast very much, esp their breakfast drinks served in shot glasses - interesting, good taste, healthy and very refreshing!
"Relaxing Reliable Stay"
We stay here most December's to access Christmas shopping at Pitt Street and Santa at QVB. We booked 2 Tower Premium Rooms - Level 14-27. The rooms have the usual quality towels and amenities. The shampoo and conditioner were lacking in ratio due to the number people staying in the room. Beds are super soft and comfortable. We travel a lot and Mosaic Breakfast is one of the best we have ever encountered and highly recommend it. Checking was very easy with staff helping us update or SPG Membership details. The only negative was valet parking was very expensive at $78 a night. If you stay I highly recommend a drink in the bar and take in the embience and architecture of the grand building.
