Quay West Suites Sydney
Travel Blogs from Sydney
It's time for Sydney-town today! We were all excited to be heading into the city to enjoy Sydney and all it has to offer. After a quick drive to Si and Tina’s at Castle Hill we quickly packed a bag and gratefully offloaded the van at their place then headed in to the Rocks area where we had booked a Quay West apartment. We …
Took the ferry from Sydney harbour had a few drinks at the bar, Walked to manly beach where the boys had a swim. Rook the bus to Bradley's head where we had "manly" cocktails on the rooftop. We got home with less than an hour to get ready for Roy and I to head out for our meal together. After a couple of drinks in the Opera bar we headed round the …
So we're on the move again, heading down to Sydney today. We were up packed and in the car by 10.15. I resisted the temptation to do a quick driveby the Avis office so I could wave my keys at the bat in there, thumb my nose at her and go na na na na na. Had I done I might have crashed the car and used up my $3000 excess.
We were sad to leave …
Refreshed after a good nights sleep, we took the elevator up to the pool area on the 23rd floor of our apartment block, and were met by an amazing view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Then disaster struck, the shutter on our camera stopped working. OMG!
We were due on an afternoon cruise around the Harbour area, so we didn't …
Am inceput ziua cu o croaziera pe Sydney Harbor. Am avut noroc de o zi frumoasa cu soare si senina, fara vint desi era cam rece caci aici este iarna. Croaziera a facut un tur de jur imprejurul harborului si capitanul ne-a povestit de toate casele mai importante de pe mal. Am facut zeci de poze caci era nemaipomenit de frumos. Cu greu m-am stapinit …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We were upgraded to a room with a view of the opera house and bridge so we spent a lot of our time trying to get the perfect shot. The servivce was excellent - had our car washed, organised a babysitter and they even posted us some washing which had been left in the drier. Highly recommended.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quay West Suites Sydney
This suite hotel is totally sweet. Granite countered kitchens with all the supplies you would need for a long stay if you wanted to prepare your own food. If not, the location is superb to find a diversified selection of wonderful restaurants. The hotel also offers a delicious breakfast which includes a wonderful selection of fresh pastry, fruit, and hot items like eggs and sausage. The living room offers the benifit of a pullout bed which does not break the back (it is actually comfortable), internet connections and a TV. The bedroom has a luxurious bed and another TV with excellent reading lights and plenty of closet space. The bathroom offers both a shower and a bath in a beautiful setting. The huge windows allow excellent views, yet feature luxurious, room darkening drapes. The washer and dryer next to the kitchen was also put to good use.
My husband, two children, and I stayed at this wonderful hotel last summer. The Quay West had the distinction of more greatly exceeding my expectations than any other hotel than I have ever stayed in. Our suite had a Harbor View that was spectacular. The decor was very appealing and comfortable. There was a complete laundry room and well-equipped kitchen. Our kids loved the hotel pool. Staff was very helpful and accomodating. We didn't want to ever leave!
After much consideration and advice from this site we decided to stay at the Quay West Suites and opted for a high room (21st floor) with views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House and wasn't dissapointed. Well worth the extra money as we spent so many hours on our balconies (you get two) that we found the view spellbinding. Well appointed rooms which include a fully fitted kitchen, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, fridge etc and also a washing room with washing machine & clothes drier. Our deal included breakfast which was just the job. The hotel is ideally situated sandwiched between the Shangri La and Four Seasons hotels on the Rocks area just a 2 minute walk from circular quay. In my opinion the hotel is better situated than its sister hotel Quay Grand and affords much better views of the harbour without the noise of the Quay.
Quay West Suites is in the best position to get the most out of Sydney. A stones throw from the Harbour ferries (the best way to get about). Buses, trains are also close at hand and a good car park is 'built in'. The accommodation is very comfortable and, if you can't stretch to a suite with a harbour view, visit the swimming pool at night and sit on the balcony!
Best place in Sydney!!
We found Quay West on the internet and one look at the pool and we knew that was were we were going to stay. Our room had views of the harbour bridge and if you can afford it, its worth the money to stay in the harbour suite. we stayed away from the room service and stuck to the spa which is definatly the go. the service was five star, the view, to die for. the best spot to stay in sydney, right on the rocks at circular Quay. fantastic!
I found this place on-line and was unsure what to expect as I'd never heard of this Australian Company- MIRVAC that owns and operates this property.
Fantastic apartment to stay in!!
We arrived at Quay West at approximately 8 am and our one bedroom apartment was ready for us! The views of the bridge and the opera house from our 22nd floor apartment were spectacular as was the condo. We had a balcony off the living room and bedroom, a decent kitchen with coffee for breakfast!
Breakfast was also a treat and we could find nothing to find fault with. When in Sydney that is where we'll stay..
Great view of Harbor and Opera House
August 2003-My husband and I spent a week in a one bedroom suite overlooking the harbor. It comes with a laundry area and kitchen,internet access in the room and a 23rd floor pool. Concierge and staff were very friendly and accomodating. Highly recommend-close to everything-circular quay, ferries, etc.
Great location and rooms
My wife and I shared a two bedroom unit with another couple and found everything to be great. The location is the best in Sydney, near to everything and with an unsurpassed view of the bridge and opera house. When tired of touring we just sat in the livingroom and soaked up the beauty of the city. No need for a car with the great access to the train and ferry systems! Staff was always friendly and helpful!
Quay West is great
We stayed at a 2-bedroom suite at the Quay West Sydney in November. The rooms were very nice and the view was AMAZING. We had a clear view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The location is great, within walking distance of Circular Quay and all the transportation. It doesn't feel like a hotel, since it's also partly a residential building. So, the lobby isn't packed with people night and day. I liked that. The indoor pool at the top of the hotel is really nice and had a great view of the city too. Our room had a full kitchen. I can't really find any fault with this place. Because of the favorable exchange rate of the U.S. dollar, we found this hotel very reasonable considering the location. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't review that.
