After a pretty uneventful flight, we landed at Sydney's Kingsford Smith International airport. We took an uber to our hotel, checked our bags, and took off for a stroll on the cloudy day. We headed off for our second breakfast of the day after our first stop of the day at the ATM machine. I discovered the joy that is muesli with yoghurt and stewed …
Just as on TV, Sydney is a majestic vibrant city. The busy harbour invokes a childlike feeling of awe and amusement. The Opera House is stunning! Numerous weddings were taking place around the opera house when we visited.

meine vorerst letzten Bilder von Sydney. Mein Aufenthalt im Hostel laeuft morgen aus und ich werde mein Zimmer dort nicht verlaengern. Sydney ist ein hammer Stadt, aber ich fuehle mich gerade danach weiterzureisen. Es geht in Richtung Brisbane und dort werde ich versuchen meinen ersten Job unter Dach und Fach zu bringen (ich will …
So, after enjoying a little warmth in the centre we headed back to the coast. The flight was nice but yet again no window, a bit **** when everyone around you is oh and ah ing as we fly over the opera house and bridge.

Well, this is the last day I can say, G'day Mate! Today is our last day in Sydney. Last night after we arrived, we walked through the Botanical Gardens and saw hundreds of the huge bats taking off for the night - they are really big and furry. We also saw cockatoos in the trees and lots of other birds. Today we went to the Sydney Aquarium to see …

Located in close proximity to the Opera House, the hotel has a lovely setting. The main lounge area does feel a bit empty due to the vast space. The service is excellent. Finding the indoor pool can be challenging.

Historical Traveler Reviews BLUE Sydney
Stayed at the W in November. Despite being guaranteed a 12 noon checkin through Starwood Preferred Guest, and dead tired after a 16 hour flight, were informed that our room was not yet available. When we did check in the room was large, nice bathroom and comfy beds, typical W. The hotel is in a converted Wharf Warehouse and is very hip and cool but it does not afford any real views of Sydney from the public spaces of the hotel. The end of the wharf is composed of high end condos so there are no really great views. There is a decent indoor pool and gym complex and one of the best features is the array of wharfside restaurants next to the hotel. Overall staff very friendly and the scene is full of hip locals. If this was my first trip to Sydney or I was there is summer, I would stay at the Park Hyatt for the outdoor pool spectacular views, and proximity to the Rocks. However if you are looking fo a hip happening atmosphere this is the place. Plus you can walk to Harry's Cafe De Wheels which can't be beat.
Easily the best hotel I've stayed in
We stayed in the W for our wedding night, and found the hotel to be as luxurious, funky and special as we had hoped it to be. All aspects of the hotel are classy and pleasingly a bit different to most modern hotels. The loft room was enormous, well laid out and very nicely decorated. We were initially confused by the lack of a breakfast buffet, but then delighted by the a la carte breakfast - all at no extra cost. Finally, I found the staff very nice, curteous and helpful too!
I'll definitely stay here whenever in Sydney - no question about it.
W for Wonderful
I was told about this hotel from a friend who had stayed there for business, I was told not to expect anything like I had seen before. The hotel was just that: The design is very modern but very comfortable. They have really great service and very cool staff, not at all snooty like you get at other five star hotels. The hotel is very stylish but you feel very comfortable there. The restaurants on the water offered great options for dinner too. My company has now set up rates there so I will be returning for all my future stays in Sydney for sure.
Being an Australian who has been abroad for a long time, I was really looking forward to the W and my trip back to Sydney. But, the W was very dissapointing.
A Unique Experience
Staying at the W Sydney is not just a hotel stay, but an experience. Once a Wool factory, the building on the wharf is now hip, modern boutique style hotel with a very attentive staff. Splurge and stay in the Marina loft which is large and luxurious.
Kingley's Steak and Crab restaurant is fantastic as is Laurent Patisserie. Manta Ray is good, but overpriced. The spa facial at Spa Chakra is well worth the AU$ 195 for 2 hours.
Keeewl as Sydney
If you want to "feel" what Sydney's about, stay at the W.
The hotel is a converted wharf with the rooms overlooking the quays.
The service is incredibly good. Albeit, I would recommend this hotel to 20-45ers, or open-minded "cool" adults. THere's a really cool bar in the lobby frequented by Sydney's "artiste" crowd.
I have just spent 5 nights at the W Sydney. This has to be the friendliest hotel I have ever been in. The room was superb, the staff warm and helpful. Nothing was too much bother for them.
Staying on the wharf has to be experienced, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The hotel comes alive at night, but the noise didn't reach my room on level 5. The security is great, only residents can access the various floors via the lift.
If I can even get to Sydney again, this is the only place I'll stay
A very stylish and expensive hotel in a previously run-down area of Sydney. Impressively constructed within an old factory next to a
The W is a very stylish hotel, almost painfully so.
W Hotel Sydney
Quite a wonderful hotel, nothing is too much trouble for the amazing staff who were endlessly helpful. Gorgeous room, great bed and bedlinen (you'll know what I mean if you stay there). Great bar. I intend to stay there alot more in the future
