My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Mercure. We booked via wotif.com and got an unbelievably great rate. We were expecting a basic room for what we paid but WOW, on arrival we got a free upgrade to a city view room with balcony!!!!!
The first thing that strikes you as you enter the hotel is the staff. Every single member of staff that you come across in this hotel is just excellent. Immaculately groomed, bright, polite,courteous and foccused on helping the guests. The concierge guys are famous here on Tripadvsior and I would say that all of the staff team in this hotel are worthy of that recognition.
Our room was a good size with a very comfy double bed, desk and chair. Nice big TV with digital channels, Foxtel and a good range of pay-for-view latest release movies. We had ample storage cabinets, a safety box, little fridge, tea and coffee making provisions.
The room furnishings and decor are modern, in excellent condition and the entire room and ensuite are a credit to the housekeeping staff in terms of cleanliness. Sleep quality for us was excellent. Even though the hotel is located on a busy city interesction the street noise is not an issue in the rooms.
PAYG WiFi is available in the lobby and resturant bar area. PAYG internet in the rooms is via an RJ45 plug in connector. A MacD less than 10 minutes walk away at the Entertainment Centre has free WiFi.
Eating wise there is a great array of fast food outlets and vibrant, colourful Chinese and other Asian resturants in the immediate and near vicinity. If that is not your style then you are in luck because the in hotel resturant is really good. The menu includes some very stylish and imaginative dishes including:- seafood, meats and vegetarian options. The service and food presentation are both excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Although we did not breakfast in the hotel ourselves; other guests that we spoke with rated the breakfast very highly.
The hotel also has a great room service; the range, style and quality of food matching that available in the resturant. The service is available 24 hours a day and a very small charge applies for the courteous and prompt delivery. BE WARNED though, this room service is addictive!!!
My wife really enjoyed the swimming pool on the rooftop while I sat on the balcony sipping wine (terrific bottle shop on Ultimo Road, 5 mins walk) and looking out across the city view.
We are planning our next visit to Sydney later in the year and we will be staying at the hotel again.
Full marks to Mercure Sydney from us and Thomas, I envy you for being able to work in such an environment.
