Yes, this is a classy hotel - COVID and all. The staff handled themselves very well in the circumstances and did their best for us. The rooms are still classy and the views superb across Darling Harbour. The Sofitel has a great swimming pool area that is well-managed. We were well looked after by Elmo who saw to our every need. His card is attached. We had friends staying in the hotel and noticed that the prints in their suite were the same as ours. Does this apply to whole hotel? Not a bad point, I suppose but interesting nevertheless

Wonderful stay but it was disappointing that the restaurant was closed the whole 5 days of our stay. You could see the problems Covid was having but the staff tried really hard. The club was open and was great the staff were amazing. Thanks to Elmo and everyone there.

Enjoyed a three night stay at this great hotel. Best of all was the Platinum Club Lounge (actually more like a large restaurant ). Wonderful service from Elmo and the team made it a home away from home. Friendly and efficient.. And with spectacular 35th floor views from the wall of windows, what's not to like.

I always look forward to my stay at Sofitel DH. Most memorable time being our staycation before Christmas. It was our first time in the Exec lounge. You will always want to have access up here after meeting Butler Elmo. He made sure we were WELL taken care of, including my kids! (THA K YOU!) We are currently checking in as I write this for the Jan school holidays. Can't wait to relax and indulge
