Historical Traveller Reviews of Four Points by Sheraton Darling Harbour Sydney Hotel

great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for part of our honeymoon back in October 2004. The location, overlooking the Harbour is amazing, and the rooms have huge windows which are perfect for sitting by and watching the world go by from. The rooms were well furnished with contemporary decor, and the staff were polite and very efficient.

We had a bathroom leak when we were there which meant switching rooms at midnight, but this was handled very well, with minimum disruption and they ensured we had another room on a high floor with a great view.

It's about a 15 minute walk to The Rocks area which is the perfect opportunity to orientate yourself - if I were going back to Sydney I would stay here again.

Very Good

from McGalio
This is a very comfortable hotel in a great location. We stayed in a harbour view room and a City view room and I'd probably just stick with the City View. The extra $$$ you save on a view is way better spent in the city. Outstanding staff!!!

Excellent value

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed here on our wedding night, and were more than happy with the room and service.

We were planning on staying elsewhere (somewhere more "upper-class")for our big night, but decided on the Four Points for the sake of convenience (we had a harbour cruise reception and wanted a hotel that we could walk to from the wharf - King St Wharf is 5 minutes away). Not wanting to pay an extra $50 for a harbour view room, we actually booked a city view room on the Sheraton official site for a very reasonable rate (about $150 cheaper than the 5 star hotels, whose services we wouldn't use anyway).

When we checked in, the staff automatically upgraded us free of charge to a harbour view room upon learning that we were getting married. Both reception and the concierge desk were more than helpful during our stay.

We didn't try the breakfast buffet, but instead recommend a 5 minute walk to the cafes at Cockle Bay Wharf where you can get a full breakfast for 1/2 the price.

For the unfussy traveller on a budget looking for a decent hotel in a great location for sightseeing, the Four Points is the perfect choice.

Above average but only just...

from Feeber
I have stayed here a few times for work reasons. It is not so well located for business as it is on the fringe of the city in Darling Harbour so probably better for those looking to do some sightseeing around there.

It is above average but not hugely so. It is cost effective relative to the other Sheraton in the City (on the park) but that one is meant to be a better hotel anyway (ie this is a Four Points). The rooms were ok, and check in was ok. We did not eat dinner at the hotel so no comments on that. I'd rather stay at the Sheraton on the Park (if you are in the Starwood programme) but it is more expensive.

business hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The location of the hotel was great, the view over Darling Harbour, lovely and the hotel large, modern, clean and comfortable.

It was very average, nothing to rave about, with the usual impersonalised service for a large hotel chain. Its definately a business-persons hotel, but its great for a base and somewhere to come back to sleep.

The walk to the opera house & bridge was about 15 mins through the shopping area, or you could get on the monorail not far from the hotel or a ferry from Darling Harbour. We found it easier to walk. Dont bother with the taxi's most of the drivers are foreigners who dont even know where they're going! One had to stop and call for directions on his radio and another we had to direct back to the hotel (we'd only been there 4 days!)

four points by sheraton, a best buy

from odds
my wife and I stayed at the four points from 10-2-04 for three days. Our room was ready for us when we arrived at 8:30 a.m. We had the king size bed with a balconey overlooking the harbour. Everything about the room was a-1. It was clean, comfortable and the price was reasonable. Also the breakfasts were excelent.The only problem was we thought we were using a phone card to call ct. in the usa, but really were using their phone line. Be aware of phone rates to the states.Overall we would stay there anytime and be well taken care of.

A very good choice

from Susons
This hotel, facing Darling Harbour, & a 5 min walk to the Convention Center, is a great choice, no matter where you need to be. It's a very easy 10-15 min walk to Circular Quay. Although the room is not large, it has the MOST amazing bed: a Super King, that is extraordinarily comfortable.

Great hotel in a great location

from moonlight
Overlooking the darling harbour, Four Points is in one of the best locations in Sydney. It is close to the night life of the king’s street and cockle bay wharf, 10 minutes walking from the train stations of Wynyard and Town Hall, 5 minutes walk from the bus station on York Street and couple of minutes to the ferry at Darling Harbour.

Four Points is about 20 minutes from the airport. It costs about $25 by cab to get there; there are also airport shuttles for $9/person that drop you off right at the doorstep of the hotel. We arrived at the hotel at 9am (check-in) time of 3pm. We left the luggage with the concierge and left to get some breakfast. They got a room ready for us in under an hour and had our luggage sent up. I’d booked a cityside room over the internet at a special pay 2, stay 3 nights offer that gave me an absurdly low price per night. Considering the low rate, I did not even ask if an upgrade was available.

The hotel automatically upgraded me to a harbour side room – the only drawback being it was in the smoking section. The receptionist offered to hold a non-smoking cityside room if we decided that the smoking section was not to our liking and did not want an ozone cleaning if the smoke was heavy. I am very sensitive to smoke and was apprehensive, but the room was perfect in every way. The smoke was non-existent inside the room and we only could smell it in the corridor on the way to the elevators.

The room on the fourth floor had a lovely harbour view from where we could watch the people on the Pyrmont bridge and the bright lights of the harbourside shopping complex. It had a huge king bed with luxurious linen and lots of pillows. The bathroom was marble tiled and the room itself looked like it had undergone recent renovation. On our last day at Sydney, we were so tired that we chose to stay in the room, sleep in, watch some TV and catch the ferries go by. The room was comfortable and never once did we regret staying in.

My partner had to extend his stay by another day initially and then discovered it was to be two days. They offered to keep him in the harbourside room for the price of a city side one, even when we found an internet rate off the SPG site. We kept asking them changes more than once and all through the staff were very courteous and extremely helpful.

If we do go back to Sydney in the future, which we are sure we will, we would love to stay there again.

Great location -Great Beds - Safes in rooms and no security concerns!

from kaycoisa
Just returned from 5 night stay in Sydney - October 28. The hotel was great! We were hesitant after reading earlier reviews, but got a great deal through United Vacations. My husband is Australian and we know Sydney well. The Darling Harbour location proved great! The proximity to the ferry, great reasonable DH restaurants, walking distance to downtown and the Rocks. The hotel had a Sheraton style buffet breakfast that could be bought with 1500 spg points for two adults and they did not charge us for our 7 year old. Internet access was easy, and the staff was very helpful. We also used the hotel limo to the airport A$40. The taxi from the airport was A$36 and not nearly as exciting to our daughter. All around really good. Plus Best of all -- THE BEDS! this room was made for sleeping.

Wonderful!

from AMorgan
We stayed here at the start of October and were delighted. We got a harbour side room, and the view was fantastic. It was a nice big room, with a HUGE comfortable bed.

It could've been cleaned a little better, but it was only small bits here & there.

The location of the hotel is fantastic. Not only is it on the beautiful Harbour but is very near to Georges street, and only a stones throw away from the QVB, which is excellent for shopping!

The restaurant downstairs is ok. While the food was nice, it was quite expensive.

Definately stay in this hotel. We spent 3 weeks travelling around Oz and this was without a doubt my favourite!

Top Local Tips for Sydney

Saving Money Always pick up the tourist leaflets (from the airport or tourist info) as they contain alot of money off vouchers.

Passes Investigate the cost of the various passes. Even if you are not staying a week, the weekly ones are great value.

Good eats Doyles on the Beach - Watsons Bay For a treat be sure to book this restaurant - great views - great setting - fantastic fish menu - If you book a relatively early table and have a bus pass, to save on costly cab we got the beach explorer bus there and back (check timetable). May sound strange to do, but very easy and no reason why not. We went in November and the ferries didn't run after the afternoon so this worked well for us.
