Westin is in a good location, almost center of city. There are 2 train stops located within walking distance. The rooms are very contemporary, the bathroom design was especially pleasing. I paid extra to be in the higher floors for better views and was given access to the executive lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea, and o'deurves. The breakfast is okay, and the o'deurves is nothing to write home about. The complimentary wireless in the lounge was very handy. The Westin is walking distance to most points of interest, the opera house, darling harbour, etc. Room service takes very long, over an hour, to get to your room. The gym and pool are nice, but a long walk from the tower my room was in; they are located in the older part of the building. The main area that needs improvement at this Westin is the customer service. The personnell in the executive lounge was very slow in serving cordials and teas. The food is served buffet style, but if you are thirsty, it's a good wait. Front desk was not as friendly as some other Westins I have stayed at. Paying extra for the high rooms, was not worth it in the end, as my view was blocked by taller buildings or construction. I was only able to get a glimpse of the harbour in between obstructions. Post office located onsite, this came pretty handy also.

My wife and I stayed here for the Sydney portion of our honeymoon. We are Starwood Preferred Guest members and thus were able to pay for part of our stay in points. Our main concern was having a quality hotel with a central, convenient location. This hotel is adjacent to Macquarie Bank and as such does a lot of corporate business; it is obviously more of a business-style hotel. That was fine with us - we had other portions of our trip for the more romantic/quaint type of thing.

The rooms are ultamodern with electronic light and fixture controls, glassed-in bathrooms with extra large tubs and a separate shower, and a flat screen TV with sound that is pumped throughout the room. Everything in the room looked brand new and worked well.

We did not order room service or use the restaurant other than for the breakfast buffet, which offered a wide variety of options including powerfood-type juice blends. The health club, as other posters have noted, is a bit far away from the modern, new tower (about a 5min walk across a catwalk on the third floor) but is excellently appointed. As it is a private gym and not merely the hotel's health club facility, it has all the features of a modern European-style health club, including a lap pool.

We found the staff of the hotel to be extremely helpful and efficient, as one would expect of a Westin.

The skylit, multi-story lobby is also very impressive.

My wife and i recently stayed at the Westin Sydney and found the service to be far from what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.We waited 40 mins for our bag to be brought to our room and that was only after calling reception.We requested a newspaper which never came.We had to wait 20 mins to be seated for breakfast,had to request cutlery,request a cup of tea and then to make matters worse we were charged $80 for the experience.We were then charged for mini bar items we did not use-this has since been refunded.The list goes on but we will never stay there again.

I've stayed at the Westin in Sydney several times and never been disappointed.

The hotel is impeccable clean and well maintained, the rooms are modern, equipped with all the amenities, have comfortable beds and great bathrooms. The room service is nice but quite pricey.

The hotels heritage rooms are also lovely but I prefer the tower rooms as I like to stay on a high floor.

The hotel's restaurant is delicious and the restaurants and bars at GPO (located within the hotel) are fantastic. The only downside is the hotel lobby, restaurants and GPO (the parts that are open) are very quite and dead on the weekend.

The hotel is in a great location, close to public transport, main CBD shopping areas and walking distance to many tourist attractions.

I'd never consider staying at another hotel when I visit Sydney.

Stayed here for 2 nites on 14th April 2008. The rooms are clean and spacious. Stayed at Level 25 but not much view, many tall buildings around. Only able to see other buildings. Good location, only 8 minutes walk to Circular Quay which is near to the Opear house. The hotel is also near to 2 train stations ie Martin Place and Wynnard. Many high end shops nearby.

Be reminded that the hotel is 100% smoke free so you would see people smoking at the entrance of the hotel.
