Check in was quick with a very friendly young woman at the front desk. She explained a few things regarding our IHG points. We had a credit which we were told could be used towards parking. We told her that would be great and we said we had already parked the car at the entertainment car park. She said that...

Actually I would give this hotel 3 1/2 stars but as we don't have that option….The location is excellent if you want to be near Chinatown, the entertainment district, Darling Harbour etc. and the staff are friendly and efficient. The bar/restaurant off the lobby is OK for a drink and quick bite but nothing fancy and a bit noisy. The...

Third time to stay in this hotel. Main reason to stay here is location. It is close to most attractions but tucked away in a quiet street.

This hotel was our base for a short tour of Sydney and its surrounding attractions, and we booked it mainly because of its great location, as it's very near to Darling Harbour and Chinatown.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.

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
