Excellent downtown hotel

We stayed just 1 night after visiting the ballet. The room was spotless and the beds comfortable. The staff were very helpful & one of us enjoyed the indoor swimming pool. The buffet breakfast can be recommended. Very convenient downtown location.

Stylish & comfortable

A really pleasant Hotel with large rooms and stylish decor. Loved the pool and steam room. Bar and breakfast buffet were all great. A really welcoming hotel. Not too pretentious but quality throughout. Great location if you like to shop and then have a bit of a hideaway.

Fantastic16 Days in Sydney

If you're looking for a centrally located hotel in the CBD, with a pool, Spa & Gym - this is the place to be. Lovely staff, nice accommodations and reasonable for Sydney. Worth upgrading to a biz class room for th full breakfast and drinks/canapés at dinner, as wee as food/coffee during the day. Likely to be my home base in SYD.

A downgrade for an upgrade

I had booked what was described as 'premier room - contemporary - generous size' but, when I checked in, I was inveigled into upgrading to 'Business Class' which included breakfast and snacks for an additional $95 per day. I did this as I had a sick partner. The room I was allocated was small, cramped and dark. I could not go and remonstrate with check-in staff because of the sick partner, but felt that I had paid the extra for a downgrade. I would not choose this hotel again.

Great Weekend for Two!

For such a vibrant place like Sydney, we felt that the Radisson Blu was within easy walking distance to lots of the tourist attractions Sydney has to offer. The hotel gave us solace from the "busyness" that is Sydney, close to some great restaurants also. We found the Hotel to be faultless, clean and the staff very, very, very friendly which made it all the nicer.

The Spice Bar only steps away from the hotel was a great find, make sure to book, otherwise you'll have a long wait.

Excellent!

Stayed 3 nights and was very happy. Decided to upgrade to Business Class floor on arrival to spoil myself. Probably did not need to. Staff are great, front desk, concierge (left my Credit Card in taxi and they helped me get it back), Bus. Class lounge - everyone. Only a short walk from Wynyard Station so can train it almost anywhere and close to Circular Quay for ferries. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
