I stayed at the hotel for a week in December and will definitely be staying here on my next visit this year.
The entrance/lobby isn't much to shout about but it's nice and rather spacious considering the fact that the hotel isn't all that big as compared to the others.
I had arrived at 1130, way before the check in time and although i had requested for an early check in, i was not expecting it.
However, to my pleasant surprise i managed to check in within 15 minutes (thanks to the amazing staff) to a large and most importantly clean room!
No musty smells along the corridors or in the room and the room had a kitchen as i entered the doorway and the bathroom on the other side.
I usually have a habit of checking how clean hotel rooms are just so i wouldn't have to go through unpacking and then having to pack again when i discover insects/anything gross lurking in any corners etc.
Toliets were free from any smells,dirt,mould etc, linen clean,kitchen clean and no trace of dirt oh and i have to mention this!! There was entirely no food smells during my stay.
I think stale food smell is just disgusting especially in an enclosed A/C building so thank goodness!!
Space in the room was awesome and that space below the TV was perfect for dumping my shopping bags! Desk by the window was great for working on the whole night on my laptop although internet connection was rather slow so i ended up using the PCs in the business room - it's really not necessary to get internet connections in the room.
The monorail was right by my window and honestly the sound did not bother me!! It had the same effect as say...traffic a good distance away? The windows blocked out the sounds pretty much anyway.
I love having a balcony, great for smokers but i'm not but i had some friends who were and we just hung out there for a couple of hours so ♥s it!
Oh it was also really useful for deciding on what to wear since Sydney weather is so unpredictable! hot most days during summer but the occasional cooler rainy day.
It got rather noisy on one night where some people were getting really pissed drunk at the nearby pub and there was the usual shouting but it lasted for about an hour or so and it's just normal citylife and being smack in the middle of a city, one would not and should not expect silence. (oh i was on the 3rd floor so yeah maybe it would quieter higher up)
I also ♥ed how quiet it was in the hotel, housekeeping was always on time and the bed+ pillows were really comfy!
No bathtub but the toliet was great!! ladies would love the make up table which comes with a higher chair and a small wall mirror to zoom in on those pores and tweeze those brows!! I could spend hours in the loo!!
The staff were great!! They seemed as though they genuinely loved their job and it was such a delight conversing with them!!
I will be visiting Sydney again this year and will definitely be staying at the Radisson again!
Did i mention it had the perfect location for shopping as well and really close to Darling Harbour!
