          We stayed at the 67th floor which provided stunning and unobstructed views of Sydney and Hyde Park. Centrally located nearby Chinatown and Darling Harbour making exploring Sydney easy. The apartments are spacious and comfortable. Improvement point: the TV included advertising that couldn't be switched off. For the rest, a great experience.

          Amazing view

          from

          66th floor overlooking Darling Harbour. Fantastic sunset view to greet us when we arrived. HUGE appartment for my wife and I and 3 big teenagers. We like decent accommodation but rarely make use of the facilities in hotels, so prefer self-catering. This was absolutely perfect - laundry, kitchen with Miele appliances, two bathrooms, 3 bedrooms - fantastic. Who needs the Sheratons or Hyatts. Perfect location -everywhere walkable. Stayed 4 nights, and absolutely loved Sydney. Meriton was the icing on the cake. Lifts are unreliable - I'm fit, but 66 floors is a bit much - so occasionally some long waits. Housekeeping was minimalist, but sufficient. Staff were helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

          Overwhelming

          from

          We stayed in the Meriton World Towers while on a family holiday, myself, husband, daughter and grandson. This was our second trip to Australia where we stay with family. But this visit we needed 'city' accommodation for 4 nights during our stay. I spent 'hours' web surfing to find an apartment finally settling on Meriton World Towers - well my hours of searching were worth every minute. The apartment was excellent, spacious, clean and well equipped (except for coat hangers). We were on the 64th floor overlooking Darling Harbour and the view was spectacular, our 7 year old grandson was mesmerized. The staff we very helpful and friendly. We all loved the apartment so much that when we make a return visit to Oz we will most certainly spend a couple of night here again.

          Luxurious Home Away From Home

          from

          After reading reviews on this site, we booked 3 apts directly with Meriton

          (PH------)who will match lowest prices(we used "wotif")

          Reception were helpful via phone and during check in. Our 3 bed apt. was huge, clean and modern-perfect for active kids in the inner city for 5 days. It was great having full kitchen and laundry. Pool was lovely but chlorine was quite strong.

          We had no problems with lift delays. 2 in our group were nervous of heights but agreed they felt secure in the lifts and in their 68th floor apt. The location was great: monorail station was right there -recommend a day pass $8pp or $20 for a family.

          Our large party of seasoned travellers were all impressed with the Meriton - worthy of it's 5 star rating. We will definitely stay again if we return to Sydney.

          All dressed up and no where to go!

          from

          we arrived late and were greeted by grumpy security guards, who informed us we needed to put a $200 security deposit down using a credit card ( we didnt know this ~ we dont have a credit card ) so we had to give them $2oo of our cash !

          the room was okay ~ ugly site the building next door....

          the room had no iron ( this was difficult as we had travelled a lot of hours to sydney and we were up early to go to a wedding the next day)

          we really needed to iron our clothes~

          there was no jug for a cup of coffee ~ we really needed one at this stage

          and there was no plug for the very tempting spa! we needed one of those as well ~

          the reception did give us an iron the next morning along with a plug and a jug....

          the beds were good but the pillows were terrible.

          the air conditioning kept cutting out every 4 hrs and it was very annoying as it became very hot during the night.

          the lifts were slow and the corridors were very very stuffy and hot!

          the towers were too far away from the city centre and attractions ` taxis were plentiful though ~ good luck trying to find one that speaks english and actually knows how to get to where you want to go!

          Great accomodation for a family

          from

          This place is great for a family. The views are spectacular.

          Wow - outstanding view from Level 76

          from

          We have stayed in Sydney many times- coming from country New South Wales, but this has been the best accommodation yet. We were one level below the top accommodation level and the view across the city was amazing. We only stayed one night, more's the pity, but we shared the cost with friends and it worked out $170 per couple. Fully equipped kitchen so very handy for guests staying several nights. Two bedrooms and the master with a huge ensuite (has a spa in it). Only bad mark was when we arrived no lifts were not working and had to walk out from the car park several levels underground to street level and around to reception. Many people checking out had to walk down the firestairs. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

          Excellent choice for any length of stay in Sydney

          from

          I visited Sydney for 3 weeks between February and March 2005. I chose to stay in the World Tower (upper levels) for my entire stay and I was very pleased with my choice.

          The standard of accommodation is very good. The apartment was very clean, with no evidence of any previous occupants. I had a 2 bed 2 bath apartment. The master bedroom was en suite, with a large bath with jacuzzi, 2 sinks and a shower that could accommodate half a rugby team. I was not that fortunate, but the servicing otherwise was very good, with towels changed and beds made and rubbish removed daily, bed linen changed every third day and the room staff were very polite and friendly.

          The main reception room was very big (about twice the size of an average hotel room in its entirety) and has a smart open plan kitchen with all appliances and smart black marble work surfaces. I was on level 65 overlooking Darling Harbour and the view was breathtaking, as much as night as during the day.

          Security is excellent. The pool on level 61 is beautiful and has stunning views all around the city.

          World Tower affords one the independence and opportunity to settle into a luxurious personal space far away from home, which one does not experience in any hotel of twice the price. World Tower is extremely reasonably priced if booked well in advance via Meriton's website. Strongly recommended.

          Good location and price

          from

          After getting a great rate at a very nice hotel on Bondi Beach, we decided to stay in town... after MUCH searching, I found this hotel. We are American, and paid a little over 100.00 US per night, so not bad. We paid for a studio and were upgraded to a 1 bedroom. This is in Little China (basically) so we were like the only white people there... not a problem, just kind of funny! There was always an "interesting" odor in the halls, but it didn't affect our room. Great Location to everything... a city rail station is not far at all and the staff was always helpful. The rooms did lack a homey feel, very modern look to them, but not very warm... There is no "do not disturb" sign, so bring one with you, as they do come in to clean up a bit. Feel free to e-mail me on how I got that great rate there... or with any questions - travel@coxinet.net (I'm a travel agent)

          I would stay here again, but hopefully next time I can afford to stay in The Rocks!

          Good apartments. bad service. don't use the phone

          from

          on the plus side apartments are spacious, in particular bathrooms and laundrys. and good location.

          scuttlebut is that meriton built too many apartments and the downturn in the market led them to turn some into hotels.

          it shows. don't expect any efficiency in check in and check out. it was chaos the day we checked in with queues etc. we had to wait until 4pm to get our room.

          pool was too crowded to use and lifts were slow as one was out of commission.

          don't whatever you do use the phone. $2 per click so a 10 minute chat to melbourne cost $40.

          Excellent

          from

          I was fortunate enough to stay here when it newly opened back in August so the place was brand spanking new. We stayed in a 3 bedroom penthouse on the 63 floor with stunning views such a beutiful city and harbour. It's in another world.

          We paid $330 per night which was Magnificently cheap considering there were 3 massive double bedrooms, and between six of us it worked out to be similar to backpacker accommodation! The fixtures and finishings were of a very high quality (and considering the place is about 150sqm+ there is a lot) and the full function kitchen was icing on the cake. We even got underground parking thrown in!

          Make sure you ask for a North-East corner penthouse, rather then south/west etc. This will give you the best views.

          Downside - the airconditioning was bizarre to figure out and we think it broke on the last day. The pentouses have no opening windows which was very annoying. The aircon was very noisy, and when it broke, even in winter all of that glass and sun turned the place into a sauna. The lifts had up to a 5min wait which is too long.

          All in all 9/10, an excellent stay.

          During our brief stay in Sydney we saw a ton and learned a lot about living in Australia. We started to pick up on some local slang, our least favorite of which is "How you going?" Though we may be tempted to answer along the lines of "by boat" or "slowly" or "at a brisk jog" what they actually mean is "How are you ...

          ... really good at the "Elevator Speech" of my life. After meeting so many new people, from random hostel travelers to woof hosts, you get good at explaining a little bit about yourself in a short time. You also learn to take of and not judge yourself for what you need at certain times. People assume that if you're traveling you have to get out there early and come home late, pack as much as possible into your day, a constant go go go!!! I'm not like that. ...
