Historical Traveller Reviews of Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel
Like Fawlty Towersfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Our booking (made 3 months prior) was incorrect as they had us staying for one night not two, and then told us we would have to move rooms during our stay.
Despite breakfast being inclusive, it was placed on our bill (despite checking with reception and with the restaurant)
We were overcharged in the bar, and when this was pointed out, were told NOTHING COULD BE DONE ABOUT IT!!! (they soon got the message).
Staff seemed totally inept.
Even checkout took 20 minutes due to a long queue at the reception desk.
Complaints fell on deaf ears.
Nice hotel, great location, dreadful service
An overall OK stay - but not great.from deanhill
Not certain if we were bumped up from our city view room because we insisted on early check-in, or because we paid the $99.00 per night upgrade for access to the Executive Lounge for free breakfast buffet and evening cocktails & appetizers.
If you fly to Sydney on United, you'll probably bump into your flight attendant here - as it is a popular hotel for airline flight crews.
The room was quite small and typical Marriott - but, the bed! it was amazing!!.. comfy matress, triple sheeted with crisp cotton linens (Frette?), two fluffy down duvets, and the BEST pillows I have ever slept on!
Their sometimes fast (most times SLOW) in-room High-Speed internet was an expensive $99.95 per week (or $9.95 per HOUR).
No ice machines - so each and everytime we wanted ice, we had to call room service - which was annoying!
Great location - only a 2 minute walk to Circular Quay.
Indoor pool was nice, but wish it was outdoors.
Housekeeping was below average - room was dusty and glass top tables & desk were covered with drink "rings" and finger prints (actually had to leave a note to request that the glass on the desk top be cleaned).
An overall 'OK' stay - but not great.
Not as good as the other reviewsfrom BigHarleyDog
Outstanding servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Sydney Harbor Marriott worked out great!from Michaela
Granted, I certainly cannot complain about the hotel since the majority of the cost was free. But even if we had paid full price, it was a lovely place to stay. The room was very clean and attractively decorated (though the suite is not large as suites go). The hotel (as many of the large hotels) is very conveniently located to the key tourist areas. A Starbucks is right across the way. An Avis branch is located in the hotel which made things very convenient for taking a trip to the Blue Mountains. The service from the staff was quite good as well.
Make sure to have access to the concierge level. The alcohol was free, and the hor d'oeurves spread was more than enough for a dinner if you did not want to go out. There was a wide selection of foods offered both in the evening and in the morning for breakfast.
New Year's Eve was everything I had hoped it would be. We had gotten tickets on-line for the actual NYE performance in the Opera House, and we could view the fireworks from viewing platforms in the Opera House, so we did not have to deal with the throngs of people jockeying for position. Although our Marriott room had a direct view of the harbor, you would not want to stay in your hotel while this world-reknown visual extravaganza is going on. Unfortunately for them, some people thought that would be the best way to enjoy the fireworks. It was said that the harbor had 1.5 million people viewing the fireworks, and it probably did. But the crowd was so happy and well behaved (no alcohol can be brought in) that I felt very comfortable and safe - and would have felt safe walking back to the hotel without my husband had I needed to.
Marriott is not the Four Seasons, but then again they don't charge like them either. It was a perfect place to land for 5 days, and I would definitely stay there again.
Excellent location!from campi
Wonderful stayfrom Vanessa_S1977
Only 1 complaint - the pool was not heated and it's one depth all around (1.4mt)
I recommend staying here for its excellent location...walking distance to Circular Quay and Sydney Opera House.
Loved the pillows.....so comfortable. Beds were just a nice.
Great Hotel. Great Locationfrom DaveHarrop
Thoroughly enjoyed the Marriott Sydney Harbourfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Sydney
Excellent public transport - forget having a car! The ferries, buses and city trains go everywhere at every time of day and night. (Okay, the ferries shut down about 11:00 p.m but the buses definitely keep going.) The ferries are the coolest way to get around but the buses and city trains are more useful for those inland spots. We bought a week pass (good for all) and it was worth every penny. Like any big city, it's expensive to park a car (if you can find a spot) and the one way streets and heavy traffic are just headaches. So, forget the car and enjoy the public transport. You won't be disappointed!
Use the train to/from airport Definitely hop on the train to get to the airport in 20 minutes. It's about 11 bucks for a one-way and very easy to use.
Royal Botanical Gardens Leave yourself some time to walk around and see the unique wildlife (Lorikeets & Flying foxes). Walk to the far side for the best pictures of Opera House and Bridge together. I have it hanging on my wall.
