We arrived early at 8.30am to be greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. We were not expecting our room to be ready but to our delight it was. Our room was very spacious with everything you would need from tea/coffee to an ironing board. Bathroom was also very large. The location is perfect, only a 10 minute walk to the Opera House & Bridge. No problems sleeping as it was quiet & very comfortable.

Apparently a bit of money has been spent upgrading this place over the years. It is hard to say this shows in the rooms and decor.

Had the misfortune to stay on level one, with small window and 'view' of dark and fairly industrial looking space. The room itself was extremely small and furniture recycled and does nit fit current alignment. Eg tv cabinet half across bathroom door and disturbingly open back to fridge and wiring which is a safety risk with proximity to wet area. Other annoyances were standing height desk built in underneath and midget size chair to fit. Completely useless for the business traveller.

The breakfast was standard fair, not particularly well done. Large bottle of water in room (complimentary at others of this rating) was eight bucks.

Staff were generally good although more often than not you felt like you were interupting a conversation to their annoyance.

Gym and pool are small but nicely finished given the space.

Great location to business district and Harbour.

Room Tip: Lower levels are dark and dreary.

Dear Mlear 11,

Thank you for providing valuable feedback regarding your recent stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney.

I note your comments regarding the appearance of the rooms and the décor. The Hotel’s lobby and restaurant underwent a refurbishment in 2010, however we do have a program in place that ensures that our highly used rooms are in perfect condition.

I was also concerned to learn of your dissatisfaction regarding your room allocation. As the Hotel is a heritage listed building, the size and layout of rooms varies. I have however asked the Front Office Manager to ensure his staff are re-confirming room preferences upon arrival with our guests. In relation to our desks and chairs, the chairs are adjustable so that it can suit all our guests.

Further to this I was disappointed to learn that some of our staff members were not attentive and welcoming. Be assured I have discussed your comments with the Front Office Manager and have asked that he reiterate to his team the importance of displaying a friendly and helpful 'Yes I Can' attitude at all times. As comments regarding our staff are highly regarded, this area will continue to be monitored closely to make certain this is not an issue going forward. I apologise for any inconvenience caused during your stay.

On behalf of the team I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Hotel when you next travel to Sydney.

Sincerely,

Peter Tudehope
General Manager
Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney

We stayed for 4 nights after getting a special offer through Wotif that reduced the rate to $260 per night. Fantastic.
The location really is excellent and is close to the train to the airport, Circular Quay, shopping precincts, Exhibition centre and Darling harbour etc.
The room was functional and comfortable and really not worthy of special mention.
The bathroom was on the other hand one of the best I've seen. The layout, attention to detail and use of space was excellent.
Definitely a place to consider when staying in Sydney.

Sadly we only got the opportunity to stay for one night. Have been lucky enough to stay in some lovely hotels around the world over the years, and this has to be one of the best. We got an amazing deal through Booking.com. Our room was beautifully furnished and equiped. Hotel was quiet at night. We took advantage of the dinner special at Bistro fax. $35 for two courses and a glass of wine. Awesome value, superb food, and a lovely setting and atmosphere. What more do you want? Every aspect of the evening was perfect. After a wonderful nights sleep in an extremely comfortable bed we went for breakfast. Wow!!! Great selection and wonderful quality. The location of the hotel is great too being very close to Circular Quay. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat. Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: One guest told us at breakfast that she was on a lower level and she found the buses a bit noisy. Might be worth thinking about it if you are a light sleeper

We stayed here for a weekend because my partner stays here for work as it is right across the road from her office. She has been staying there just about every week since the beginning of the year so you'd think they would have given us a nice room when we checked in but instead we got a room with a big wall and a tiny window.
In fact just about every time she goes down she get put in a below average room and has to go back down and ask them to change. Very annoying and shows no appreciation for loyal customers.
Poor customer service.

Dear Konigv,

Thank you for taking the time to provide valuable feedback regarding your stay at the Hotel in January.

I was disappointed to learn that although your partner is a regular guest of the Hotel, you were not looked after during your stay and that she has not been allocated nice rooms in the past. It is unacceptable that she has not been recognised as a regular guest and I have asked the Front Office Manager to carry out further training with his team regarding the importance of guest recognition and confirming room preferences upon arrival to ensure this is not an issue going forward. I sincerely apologise for the disappointment this has been causing and I would be pleased to offer you and your partner an upgrade for a future stay. Please contact our reservations team on res.sydplaza@radisson.com in order to arrange this.

I look forward to welcoming you and your partner back to the Hotel when you next travel to Sydney.

Sincerely,

Peter Tudehope
General Manager
Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney
