Sydney Concert

The most positive thing i can say about the Holiday Inn is it's location is great ! The negatives .... i was expecting on- site parking but was informed car park was full & was directed further down the street to a parking precinct.That should certainly be mentioned at booking !! We also ended up with a babies cot in our room, not sure why as we HAD NOT requested it , on asking at reception on having it removed we were told 15 minutes ..... let's just say i'm still waitng !!! Overall an underwhelming experience and would probably not consider staying there again.

Night away for the theatre.

I booked this hotel for a night for my husband and myself as we were watching a show at the Capitol Theatre on the Friday night. The hotel was in a great location, with a small walking distance to all the places we needed to be. The room itself was clean, comfortable and well suited to our needs. The only complaint would be the shower, needs an upgrade and the water pressure was pretty terrible. Everything else though was great, the staff were friendly and helpful, checking in and out was easy and overall we had a great time.

Conference trip

Friday was raining. I stood on line to ask for an umbrella. Two other front desk staff were busy with clients. I was the only person standing waiting to be served. The Asian female just looked at me and decided to pickup the phone and get busy with it. I stood there waiting and waiting to be served. Face to face client should be priority to the telephone client.
