Quay Grand Suites Sydney

... We also moored into Darling harbour ( another past harbour) before heading back under the harbour bridge. The harbour bridge looks incredible and in a way makes more of a statement than the opera house in the harbour because it is so eye catching due to the scale of it. The cruise was enjoyable and we couldn't think of how to have a better introduction to Sydney! The evening was also pretty cool, we went for a drink at the Opera house ( something that was ...
... the bridge which actually didn't take as long as we had thought, around 20 minutes all in all including photo stops as its amazing point to see the Sydney Opera House. On route I found out that the Opera House is in fact three separate buildings and not one as I had first thought - see travelling does broaden your mind.
The other side we discovered ...

Bondi to Coogee beach walk
Sea life aquarium
I spoke to Kane and asked him did he think his Dad would like to go to Taronga Zoo, Kane just laughed down the phone to me. I'm going to go with my gut instinct here and say the answer was a no. I threw out the idea of doing to Bondi ...

There was a walkway which allowed you to walk through the forest and pass through some of the areas that where, up until the late1930's open coal mining took place.The mines were opened in the 1800's by specialist miners from Wales.

Doesn't he realise the sight of the squashed heel of his perfectly designed pair of shoes makes me feel ill. I've had enough of this. It's just not good enough! I'm mad as hell.

Ok. I feel better now.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quay Grand Suites Sydney
Had a three night stay in a two bedroom harbour view apartment. The view was breath taking. The rooms weren't bad either. Room service was excellent and great value for money.
The only slight draw back is that the harbour is a buzzing area so expect some noise from bars. Even so I would still stay there again.
There are many nice things to say about this hotel. The view from the harbor view apartments is stunning. The staff and restaurant are both quite pleasant. There is space for families, especially in the two bedroom apartments. The kitchen appears to be quite nice.
A home away from home!
Stayed at Quay Grand in sydney June 2005 in the Garden room. The apartment room have everything from two TV's to a full kitchen and a lush spa! Apartment was spotless and very comfy. I would definatley recommend staying in the water view room as the garden view room did not really look oevr a nice garden. It also proved very frustrating knowing you had one of the worlds most beautiful harbours and couldn't admire it when you wanted to.
Definately would stay again.
We have stayed 3 times at this hotel - our only complaint is that it gets booked up particularly at peak times. We have stayed on the front - breathtaking and on the back still atmospheric. There is no greater location on the planet!!!!!
Sydney Harbour balcony view
We stayed here for our wedding night and we had the best view while eating breakfast from our balcony...what else but the Sydney Harbour Bridge, right next to Circular Quay.
I greatly recommend it to anyone!
Fabulous location and facilities
Stayed for 4 nights here and it is the most stunning location for a hotel - very accomodating with the kids too. Staff very friendly and great to have a kitchen with everything! would stay again if someone else is paying!
Perfect spot for 1st time Sydney visitors from anywhere
I always go back
I used to be a frequent guest at sister property Quay West till Quay Grand opened. The name is pretentious but everything else is perfect, and I haven't stopped going back. Being accustomed to the views of the harbor and the bridge these days I tend to stay in the garden view rooms as Macquary Street is much quieter than Quay East, and the apartments on that side are $100 cheaper too. If the apartments were just a touch bigger I could stay forever. My wife feels remorse everytime she thinks how we toyed with buying one of the apartments when they were launched!
Our family of four (two adults, one 5 year old and one 10) stayed at the Quay Grand for seven nights in August and were extremely happy with the choice. We had a one bedroom suite overlooking the Circular Quay and the Harbour Bridge. Our children slept on a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living area. A full kitchen (necessary cooking utensils, appliances and dinnerware included) and dining table allowed us to dine in, especially for breakfast and a few dinners. Room service is available all day off of a limited but tasty menu. Although we were directly over the hustle and bustle of the main harbor, the room was surprisingly quiet. A balcony with two chairs and a table make for an enjoyable perch in warmer weather for watching the constant parade of ship traffic below and sunsets over the Bridge. The location is terrific with immediate access to the great public transportation options (subway, buses and ferries) that allow one to visit most parts of the city. The botanical gardens are directly across the street on the other side of the hotel and the Opera House is a five minute stroll along the arcaded edge of the harbor. The financial center and main shopping district are an easy uphill stroll (fifteen minutes), too.
Best hotel in the World!!
Must stress that I didn't pay to stay here (company paid for it!!) as there's no way I could afford it! It's the best place I've ever stayed, the views of the harbour from the rooms are amazing. Was lucky enough to be here for 2 weeks and it felt like my home. If you get the chance, stay here!!
Excellent location. Beautiful five star property.
This is a top choice in Sydney.
