Stayed here in June 2018 for a conference. Ideally located for any event at the ICC Sydney. An easy walk to Darling Harbour and Chinatown and reasonable walk to light rail going to Central. The rooms have been recently refurbished and are spacious and comfortable....More

Staff were engaging and could not do enough for you. A little difficult to find from Darling Harbour if you are not familiar with the area. Convenient placed to the city, it’s an easy walk and in peak hour quicker to walk than Taxi/Uber.

This hotel is overpriced and under-staffed. After lining up for 20 minutes at checkin due to lack of staff, we were put into a 'refurbished' room which smelt of paint fumes. I asked to be moved to another room - which occurred, but the room...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

I would advise you to email the hotel and ask them to send you all the information on their babysitting service then you have it in writing directly from them. We didn’t have children with us therefore we didn’t look into it.

Our parking was free but that was with the deal we got - I think it's normally around $20 for overnight.
