“Holiday Inn Sydney”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The hotel is in a great location and the view, if you have a room that faces the harbour, is terriffic. Wireless internet in the room is a plus but watching analog TV on a fairly small LED TV does not add much to the experience. The room is comfortable, clean, quiet and well appointed.

The lobby area is very modern, somewhat spartan but inviting just the same. I had a breakfast voucher provided by my employer and enjoyed a very nice meal in the newly renovated restaurant which provided a spectacular view of Sydney harbour.

I looked inside the bar the night before and noticed no real changes from its "Delta" days and passed on it to have supper across the street at a quaint pub. The bar decor is tired looking and needs a refresh.

All in all a good experience for the business traveller.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the harbour is a must and upper floors are best.

Dear Ron J,

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at our hotel. I am pleased to read that you were happy with your room and enjoyed our newly renovated Saltspray restaurant. Our Crown and Moose pub was not part of the recent renovation but the food and service continue to be among the best in the city and I hope you get a chance to visit again and experience our British pub.
Thank you for staying with us and if your travels bring you back to Sydney, we will look forward to welcoming you again.

Sincerely,
Darcy MacDonald

I am impressed with the reno's completed. Very bright and inviting. Restaurant and staff were amazing. Water side is terrific in the summer. Front entrance is clean. Staff at front desk are also amazing and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with one bed and a sofa. There is more room.

Never been dissapointed when staying at this hotel. Staff is always pleasant and the hotel has been recently been refreshed. They have a bar and restaurant inside the hotel for those nights you don't want to leave the hotel and have a few very good restaurants/bars at walking distance if you want to stay close enough not to have to drive.

Room Tip: Harbour side has more of a view.

Had a good time staying here this time. Only thing would be that it is loud outside and on the floor above you. I would recommend the top floor. The restaurant is great, a little high on the price and I would have liked more variety in the choices.

I started staying at this hotel when it was the Delta and continued staying right through the renovations to it now being the Holiday Inn. The staff are absolutely wonderful, friendly and accommodating! The renovations are great and have modernized the hotel. I still really enjoy eating in the Crown & Moose and wish they were still open over lunch hour. The dining room view is absolutely beautiful. Service is quite slow and disjointed in the morning at breakfast time.
I will continue bringing my business to this hotel! Keep up the great work, its easy to tell customer service is very important and customers are remembered!

Room Tip: - away from the elevators - room facing the harbour (bed facing the window so you can see the harbo...

This hotel is located right on the water, with a nice board walk just outside the back of the hotel. The restaurants in the hotel are very good, and there are other restaurants easily within walking distance. Although, I did not use the work out room, it is situated on the lower level and all the exercise equipment looks out the large glass windows onto the water. I would stay here again, and would like to try it in the summer.
