Having never stayed in a 5-star hotel before, I didn't think there would be any major changes to the usual accommodation I stay in. I was pleasantly surprised. From the moment we arrived to the Radisson Blu, we were treated like celebrities and no issue was to small to raise with the staff. An issue was found with the booking of the room but was sorted out immediately and to our satisfaction. The breakfast buffet was impeccable and I am constantly reliving the delicious experience in my head. The location was perfect, I easily walked to the Opera House and other major Sydney attractions in mere minutes. The room was beautiful and all furnishings were thoughtfully placed throughout. I feel that this will be my new home away from home.

Room Tip: Make sure you select a pillow from the complimentary menu in the room!

I have stayed at the Radisson blu Plaza in Sydney once before and had a nice room, they have a lovely pool and hot tub area, polite and helpful staff and exemplary concierge service, but this time I was greatly disapointed in our room., As you can imagine this hotel is not cheap, the furniture was chipped and dated, the decor old, there was also a locked door with an ugly metal slow closer sticking out of the top of it on one side of the room, the biscuits (one pack of 2 between 3 people) were stale we threw them out. The room was clean and the bathroom nice. There are other 4 star hotels in the same vicinity maybe we will try one of them next time.

Room Tip: Let reception know you are not happy with the room.

Rooms are large and very well laid out for a business stay with large desk, comfortable chair. Lots of nice features including free Internet (that actually worked at good speed), good amount of plugs for electronics, strong hair dryer, nice bathroom layout with good lighting, pillow menu. Service was exceptional and the concierge and staff could not do enough to help. Lovely bar area to wait for colleagues or have a drink before bed. Fantastic location so a great choice for business or pleasure.

We stayed here for two nights and found the staff and hotel excellent. Would recommend for a trip to Sydney for business or leisure as its in a great location, just off Pitt Street and a short walk to Circular Quay and the Rocks. Room was nice with a huge bathroom, soft towels and bathrobes.

Nice Hotel very central with walking distance to Circular Quay and a short walk to darling harbor and lots of shopping streets. Rooms are comfortable and clean- I had the Standard King room
It was nice- nothing outstanding to comment on about this room – really just your average hotel room but was clean, good size, the beds were comfortable. There is no balcony or ability to open windows but this did not bother me.

Staff were very friendly they take the time to help you out and have a chat if you are waiting around outside.

The bar area is nice and comfortable, lounge style- did not have dinner here as there are so many good restaurants close by, there are also late night convenience stores close by if you need it.

Lovely hotel in a great spot in central Sydney. Rooms are large with a lovely bathroom incl a large bath for a long leisurely soak. A block away from Pitt St Mall and a few blocks from Circular Quay make for a fantastic and hassle free holiday
