I have stayed at this hotel quite a few of times over the past 10 years or so and always rated it highly, with only one minor exception a few years ago. This latest visit was disappointing for a number of reasons: Check in was friendly and efficient as usual. Room was clean and bed comfortable. The first bad experience...

We stayed in an executive room for three nights and found the room was perfect for us as a couple. The service we received was excellent, from check in to check out. There is no onsite parking though, as the hotel is turning the one they had into more rooms. Parking is about 100 metres down the road at Number...

We stayed at this hotel on Saturday 29/11/14. We were checked in by Hasan, who was awesome! He was so friendly and welcoming and it made a fantastic first impression of the hotel.

Good hotel, very clean and staff courteous. Free internet next to reception and nice breakfast with a good variety available. Location very good and rooms clean and well presented. For the price it is very good value. IHG are a trusted brand and this hotel met my expectations.

After reading the very mixed reviews we were a little worried but picked hotel for its location - opposite the Qantas Credit Union Arena. Check in was polite and efficient. It was during walk up the stairs, down a long corridor to the room that got us worried. We felt like we were in a youth hostel ... Threadbare carpet,...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here in 2 years and it is still a good place to stay when visiting Sydney. It is quite small for a Holiday Inn and maybe that is its attraction? More personal than some of the bigger hotels. We arrived early after an overnight flight from Singapore and the front desk staff...

Reviewed 27 November 2014

I liked the hotel. The room was clean. Modern furnishings. It was across the road from the Sydney Entertainment Centre. It was very busy when I checked in, and the front-office staff were not handling the crowd very well. They needed more staff rostered on at the time. However, it was a very good place to stay. Recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emanating a quiet charm right in the middle of the action, Holiday Inn Darling Harbour has the best that Sydney has to offer on its doorstep. A heritage listed former Wool Store cloaks the northern wing of the hotel in history. Situated in the southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll through Darling Harbour with its many attractions. The vibrant Chinatown and Latin Quarter are close by and the Qantas Credit Union Arena is right across the road. You can walk to some of Sydney's best restaurants, theatres and shopping complexes. For something a little different, board a ferry or the light rail for sightseeing. Trains and buses to Pitt Street Mall shopping precinct and Circular Quay are nearby too. ... more   less
