One-night stay before heading out onto the Cabot Trail. Queen room, middle floor. Love seat and desk. Pleasant staff. No problems with check-in. Luggage carts readily available at door. Free parking. Pro tip: If your room is across the corridor from the ice machine, make sure the door isn't propped open (flip up the little kickstand). If you buy the...

My room had a spectacular view on two sides of the room, one overlooking the water directly and a side view looking towards the cruise terminal. Beautifully clean and a very comfortable bed.

This hotel is right down on Esplanade Street in downtown Sydney. There is metered parking on the street or a small lot next to the hotel that is free. The hotel is very close to a number of restaurants and bars and has it's own restaurant/bar on site with live entertainment. There is also a separate breakfast restaurant on site...

The Hotel is located right on the harbor, the front desk staff was very friendly. The rooms are average, nothing out of the extraordinary. We stayed here as our other choices were booked, our mistake, we booked late.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, and check in check out was fast. There are many tour groups that stay here so if you arrive or leave at...

The service at the front desk was exceptional. We ate at the Crown and Moose Pub and Michael who served us was exceptional! Great suggestions and entertaining! A server Mary Francis who was serving another table helped entertain their 16 month old while they are.

Comfortable and clean hotel on the Sydney waterfront with beautiful views of the harbour. A few steps outside, the boardwalk along the harbourfront is a very picturesque and enjoyable stroll. Normal Holiday Inn décor but very friendly service at the front desk and dining room and breakfast was very good and reasonably priced.
