We live in Sydney but needed to go to a family wedding in the city so decided to stay near the reception at Darling Harbour. The Holiday Inn was in a very good location being only a 10 min walk to Darling Harbour and only a few blocks from the city center as well. The hotel is a bit dated in appearance but the rooms quite spacious and clean. The room had a mini frige (left empty so you could fill it with what you wanted) and the staff were all very friendly. The pros to this hotel is the location. IDEAL. The cons--has to be their seafood buffet. Far overpriced for what is offered. It was fresh and the seafood selection was OK but the sides of salads (only 3 on offer), vegies and other meat dishes was very minimal and often the dishes were empty and refilling was very slow. They didn't offer a cracker to use on the crab legs nor a pick to get the meat out. When I asked I was brought a cracker but still no pick and it was very difficult to get meat of the tiny crab legs. They had a beautiful loaf of French bread but no knife to cut it with so we just broke off a piece. Later when we went back for 2nds we found there still was no knife.
- 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
