Pullman Sydney Hyde Park
Travel Blogs from Sydney
We had an enjoyable last day of our holidays. We spent it basically relaxing which was really nice. To begin with we had to pack up our luggage and transfer hotels. On one hand we were lucky as it was just up the street - so we didn't have to get a taxi or worry about that, unfortunately the short distance up the road was all up hill. But like the …
Time changed one last time, and we arrived in Sydney at 10:00pm. After having a look at the train routes, we discovered the Museum station was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel, so that was definitely our best option. It took about 20 minutes to get downtown -- very convenient.
The only tough part was carrying our bags up the stairs …

Sydney is a much needed change from Beijing... thank goodness!!!!
Sydney is absolutely amazing. Beautiful skyline, quiet city, and everyone is very nice. We arrived in Sydney 4 days ago and have been on the move ever since.
In the morn of the our last 1/2 day I worked out in the chic gym, on the 23rd floor and it was so incredible.
Then, our first flight was fine. I watched "An Education" and it was so good. The flight itself was fine too. The next flight, the big International one was fine too! The food on those planes is way better than the majority of …

Historical Traveler Reviews Pullman Sydney Hyde Park
I just got back from this hotel and thought it was very nice. The location is central, just across from Hyde Park and adjacent to Darlinghurst. Lots of nice shopping nearby. Near a subway stop and several bus lines. Less than a block from the Australian Museum. A ten or fifteen minute walk to the Opera House. I stayed in an Executive Room, which I found very comfortable. Not huge, but large enough for a double bed and a full sofa. Room also had a small microwave and a wetbar. Bathroom was modern and large. I ate breakfast in the Executive Lounge and thought the breakfast was fine. Lots of fresh fruit, pastries, cold cereal, breakfast meats, etc,. Plenty of juices and coffee. I found the staff very pleasant. The Executive Lounge was small, but it was never overly crowded and I always found a place to sit. The lounge had two televisions, which I liked. Staff was helpful. From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., they served drinks and a lite buffet--including two hot dishes. Lots of pleasant conversation with other hotel guests. This isn't the best hotel I ever stayed in, but for the price it was quite nice. Unlike some of the other reviewers, my experience with the staff was uniformly pleasant.
My wife and I used our credit card rewards points to purchase a one night Executive Room stay at the Marriott.
I was a little disappointed , I was so looking forward to this hotel . We paid extra for a harbour view room and the exec floor , neither of which were worth the money. The exec room was badly designed and the evening staf did not seem to care about the needs of their guests . You had very limited soft drinks and even more limited alcohol . The canapes were poor with usually only two choices . There was supposed to be a dessert service but this consisted of a frozen cheesecake . The free breakfast in the morning was okay . The lounge seemed to resemble more of a restaurant than a lounge , we spent the evening been moved by staff who wanted to set up for the breakfast in the morning.
Wow, did this suck or what?!
Not worthy of three stars.
Old, room, falling apart( cracked chair, broken bed and clogged toilet).
The pool was not clean.
Service only changed two times(was there ten days) and I had to call for it. They arrived, but they were all cranky, and three days late to boot.
Please don't waste your money coming here, I mean, please don't support this hotel. I'm sorry, but it was kind of a bad deal($150 a night), you know?
just stayed 3 nights in the sydeny marriott hotel on on our way home on a round the world trip.
We stayed at the Sydney Marriott for 4 nights in Feb 2005 for our honeymoon. Unluckily, we did not find it that excellent like many reviews told us.
Great hotel !
just back from my 3rd stay at this hotel, great location, huge rooms by uk standards and really friendly staff, highly recomended !
Typical Marriott ( a good thing)
Stayed at the start and end of our visit to Australia in August. Hotel is typical Marriott - good quality everything, reasonable price.
Location is good - particularly if you're driving although it is a good walk to the Rocks/Opera House. Bathrooms are very large - you could get lost in the tub! Only negative was the pool/hot tub. Went up one morning and the hot tub was freezing and the pool is outdoors and didn't seem to be heated (makes it a bit cool during an australian winter). Restaurants are pricey but the hotel is near a lot of cheap (for Sydney) eateries so you have some options. Overall, would certainly recommend the property.
this hotel is sweeet... everything was perfect!
After reading some reviews and many travel books about hotels in the different sections of Sydney, we booked a hotel by central station. Then upon reading a review on that particular hotel we canceled it and booked the Renaissance Hotel near the Rocks and Opera House on the Circular Quay. Just before we traveled, it was renovated and became the Sydney Marriott. As senior tourists not knowing what we were getting into, and new to Australia travel we were totally delighted with the hotel and the location. We were so glad to be able to walk over to the Opera House to attend a symphony and walk to The Rocks to have breakfast at a tea garden and shop. The train station and busses were right there and to top it off Starbucks was across the street! The Marriott rooms and staff are just great. Our view of the water and Opera House was delightful and the bathrooms are tile and spacious with large separate shower and tub and two sinks. There's a stocked fridge and the king bed was comfortable. We were too busy to use the gym and pool which was still being renovated at the time. (April 2003) If you stay through a Sunday we highly recommend the hotel brunch. We feel our choice was perfect and Circular Quay area for acommodations is the best if you want to relax for a few days and still get around easily. An added bunus for us was that our Pacific Princess cruise ship docked right at the port in Circular Quay. We boarded it for a two week cruise to the South Pacific and that's another story!
