Lap of Contemporary Luxury

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 10, 2007

The Radisson Plaza is one of Sydney's grand dame hotels. Located in the city centre less than 10 minutes walk from Circular Quays, the hotel is the superb renovation and reconstruction of the 1850s Fairfax Building, built as the headquarters of Australia's biggest publishers.

A 21st century hotel in one of the grandest buildings of the 1800s, a building that was partically rebuilt and expanded in the 1920s (with the front dome added to provide a perspective of height to a central location which at the time had a limit of buildings being no more than 150 feet high). It works spectacurly, and the Radisson Plaza has to be one of the most comfortable of hotels in the Sydney.

Unique Quality: On the eleventh floor, the front facing rooms all have balconies - a perfect spot to while away the hours people watching below. All rooms have king-sized beds, all decked out in neutral and chocolate colours. Huge bathrooms with plenty of product on offer, and if you want to continue the water theme, a small lap pool is available. A self-styled boutique hotel, although at 336 rooms and 26 suites, the terminology of 'boutique' is certainly changing!

Within the hotel is to be found 'Bilson's' Restaurant, the latest from award-winning chef Tony Bilson. A 'three hat' restaurant, this is one of the best in Sydney. If you do not want to remortgage your home to eat, the hotel also has the more affordable BistroFax on the premises (but the location of the hotel is such that you do not have to only eat in the hotel!).

RATED ONE OF THE BEST IN SYDNEY, AND DESERVEDLY SO.

Decided to splurge so stayed here, and were not disappointed. Great service, for e.g. drinks vouchers were part of our deal, and when they only gave me one drinks voucher - understandable, as I checked in alone and my partner joined me later- they were VERY quick to rectify it, sending a bellboy up to slip another voucher under my door! They were also very good and held our luggage without hassle for the day of our departure. Extremely quiet - great soundproofing in rooms (there was construction work outside we didn't even notice until we left the hotel for the day!), and a good breakfast. Very centrally located- we walked just about everywhere. Best of all, you could watch TV from the bath, through an engenious window / shutter set up in the bathroom!

Unique Quality: Centrally located, with a great bathroom setup that allows you to watch TV from the bath!

Directions: Midway between Circular Quay and Myers / Grace Bros on the mall!

Sydney's Own Flatiron Building

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 17, 2005

We had an excellence service from the helpful Reception. On our request, we were given a quiet room away from the lift area.

Unique Quality: What we love is the architecture of the hotel that resembles the flatiron building in New York. The room decor was simple but pleasing, spacious and clean. Also, it is situated near many of the city's landmarks. From here you could easily go on foot to Sydney Harbour and Pitt Street.

While I was in sydney I stayed in the Radisson at darling harbour. As I was working with the Radisson chain at the time they gave me a nice room with a nice discount! The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are very comfortable.

Stayed here for 4 nights at beginning of Australian leg of holiday. Between booking and setting off on holiday we discovered hotel offering a good deal to upgrade to business level so took advantage of this. We knew that hotel has no view to speak of, but didnt intend spending much time in room anyway so that did not worry us, especially as the Rocks and harbour etc withing 5 mins walk. Hotel itself lovely, comfortable big room spotless,good wifi, and complementary breakfast in business lounge very nice.
Staff all very pleasant and helpful in every area of hotel.
We did not eat in hotel other than breakfast, but noticed resturant seemed lively and busy each evening when we stopped by the bar for nightcap.
Would definitely recommend this hotel
