“Great location and nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I had planned this trip well in advance and had helpful e mails from the hotel concierge and reservations department (Thank you Brooke!). The arrival welcome was delightful and we were given a nice room with a view of the Opera House. The Executive Lounge was good, the food offerings very nice and though the room was overcrowded on several occasions the staff diid their best to manage it. The lounge staff were excellent actually and helped us with suggestions for restaurants and directions. The room was comfortable and very clean but felt a bit clinical to me, maybe the frosty blue furniture was a bit cold looking for my taste. The location of this hotel could not be beaten, five minutes walk to circular quay and all the transport links, and very central for shopping and eating. I would highly recommend this property and definitely will include it in my plans for next time.

My wife and I travel to Sydney on a Vacation. Marriott had a very friendly staff. We go to the hotel really early morning our check in time wasn't till 3PM. They have a lounge for early arrival, with showers and refreshments. Location is prefect. Walking distance to Opera House. Hotel was great. Just needs to be update for the amount they charge.

Been here before. Hotel is on the Main Street - Pitt Street, easy access to train station, piers, and main landmarks of the city.
Room was clean and bathroom was very big. Love the bed and bedding.
One good think for me about this hotel: electric plug next to bed. Easy to charge your phone while you are sleeping and no need to run on the other side of the room in the morning when alarm go off.
Staff are very friendly and approachable.
Had amazing breakfast in their restaurant. Food was fresh and cooked well.
My small advice for you: whenever you gonna stay here - chose corner rooms (with numbers 12 and 14). It's bigger and located in the corner. Has amazing view on the Harbour.

This hotel has everything. Location location, 2 minutes from circular quay and the gateway to the harbour. Views of opera house, harbour and bridge. Great room on 29th floor, city views which look amazing at night. Go for extra and choose the executive club its worth it. The club itself on the 30th floor has amazing views and the breakfast/afternoon tea and evening drinks/canapes are all included. It is a quality product offering, service excellence and attention to detail at every turn. The hotel pool/spa are warm and inviting with city skyline views through an atrium. This is my 5th visit to sydney and will continue to choose the marriott every time we visit.

Room Tip: choose a floor as high as possible to maximise all the views

Centrally located downtown, walking distance to the pier, opera house and train station.
Quick and easy check in, Ate in the lobby bar as we were pressed for time. Everyone was helpful.
Had to print some emails in the executive lounge and that was outstanding.
Very clean, bright and modern.
Would love to go back and spend more time there.
One bad point we had a 5 am departure and there was no coffee available, I really think that the night staff needs to have that option avialable for the guests.

The hotel is in an excellent position minutes away from Circular Quay and about 5 minutes from the Botanical Gardens. The superior room we had at the rear on 26th floor was spacious and very comfortable with views over the city skyline which were amazing. We had not used it before but chose this hotel specifically for its location and were not disappointed. Breakfast buffet was excellent but we as did not use the main restaurant for other meals, there being too many interesting choices of eateries in the area, so cannot comment on those. We would definitely book there again on another trip.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter

Central location - close to the harbour, trains, shopping. Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff. We had to check out early and could not make breakfast so staff organised breakfast boxes for us to take away. The were fresh and delicious with fruit, juice, pastries and cold meat/cheese/salad.
