Great place to stay!

This is a great hotel - the building is HUGE and the rooms reflect the space. We had a loft room which was fantastic with everything you could need, including a lovely deep bath tub. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only two drawbacks: - it did take a bit of time to valet park to car - this meant that I had to double-park for about five minutes whilst waiting for taxis and other cars to be moved. Not really a problem, unless a police car drove past! - the shower recess was very stained and rather off-putting. I know others have mentioned this, so even though I was prepared for it, I still gasped when I saw how awful it actually looked, and if I had had thongs, I would have worn them. The good news is though that when I mentioned it upon check-out, the reception staff informs me that renovations in July 15 will fix this. I will definitely be back to BLUE and I am looking forward to the renovations.

Highly recommend!

My fiancé and I highly recommend this hotel. We had a wonderful overnight stay to celebrate his birthday and found the whole experience very enjoyable and relaxing. The staff, the room and the location were all great. We walked to the QVB Building and it wasn't very far at all, about 1.8 kilometres, and pleasant through the park. Cannot thank the Blue Team enough for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable. Thank you all very much.

Nice Location, Great Overall Value

Overall a refreshing change from your standard city hotel, starting with the location that feels a bit more like a resort than being in a busy city, yet you're only steps away from Sydney's busy city center. The rooms are more spacious that what I'm used to in Sydney and I found the overall value provided to be excellent. Yes, the rooms would perhaps benefit from a few minor touch ups, but everything functioned perfectly and was impeccably clean. The building itself is really cool, with nice public spaces and a great pool.

Excellent

We enjoyed our stay and found it close to everything we wanted to do. We did a lot of walking and visited the Art Gallery. We had tours of the State Library and attended a concert at Taronga Zoo also the local Hotels had some great entertainment.

hotel changed ownership

Hotel has gone down hill since new ownership. This hotel had closed their bar couldnt get front desk to answer calls toilet was leaking. All the niceties you get for a top dollar hotel has gone. I told them so. I wish my next booking on the 22nd feb was with another hotel now. After staying there many times I am very disappointed. Julie simon apres.she.

This hotel is the best I have ever stayed at. The bed was so comfortable and they have a pillow menu. Staff were friendly and it was a fantastic location. We loved our view of the Navy ships.

Great Sydney overnight.

A fantastic hotel, outstanding location with numerous top class restaurants on the wharf. We were in town for a family overnight stay and chose this hotel for its location and proximity to the city. Totally different to any other hotel we have stayed in. Very friendly, helpful staff I can't recommend it highly enough. We will be back for a longer stay next time.
