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.

It is my second time to the Holiday Inn Sydney Waterfront on business and I really like the people who work there. They go to every effort to smile and create a welcoming, home-like feeling. I highly recommend this team, facility and location.

We enjoyed this property very much. It is right on the water in Sydney. The view from our room was very nice. The room was ample size and the facility was well maintained. It was very close to interesting sites in the Sydney area. We would stay again

We stayed here as part of a family vacation to the East Coast. This place popped up as being Waterfront and having some good reviews. We liked the location. It was right on the waterfront boardwalk. The view was fantastic. Having said this, the rooms were dated, but very clean. The elevator here was very slow. There was no free...

Stayed here on IHG points as I had some left over. Location and hotel grounds are right by the waterfront in downtown Sydney - walking distance to everything in the core restaurants/bars/casino . Room showed its age a little bit but everything was in working order and beds were comfortable . Would stay here again if the price was right.

Very nice hotel in a great location to view the waterfront and maybe even see a cruise ship arrive. This hotel has had numerous owners over the years and my last time here it was a Delta property. Updated lobby and restaurant but the rooms are a bit dated. However, our queen room was comfortable with a small sitting area....

I have stayed at this property almost once a year since the building was once a Delta Hotel before being renovated and becoming a Holiday Inn Express property. I totally enjoy my stays at this property and this is the first time I have formally written a review of it. First of all, the location is the best spot in...
