Last weekend my partner and I stayed at Holiday Inn Darling Harbour for our 5 year anniversary. It was my first time in Sydney so we wanted to stay some place central so we could enjoy the sights and restaurants. The location was great and the price was reasonably decent for the location. It is just outside darling harbour, in china town, but only a very short walk to the harbour's centre and only a 30 minute walk to the Rocks (sounds a long way but we did it a few times). The Inn itself is not very impressive, the staff were a little slow and unenthusiastic which made checking in a bit of a drag. In addition to this, our shower leaked through the wall into the carpet near the entrance leaving a very large damp spot in the room. After we reported it, it took ages to get someone to look at it and after that the water spot or the leak wasn't fixed and we weren't offered a change of room...pretty slack. The rooms are pretty run down and in need of a fix up. On the whole I was not that impressed, but if you are happy with an average place to stay with a great location it will serve your purposes.

- 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.
