Embarkation Day - We're Going Cruising!

Since leaving Kamala, we now feel we are actually on a holiday kind of trip. The last three days in Sydney have given us a chance to explore a little of this great city....certainly not the great country of Australia (maybe another time). There has been so much to see and to try to get a feel for this town. Not enough time to see everything...but …

Sydney is cool for Kids.

Australia was one of the best holidays I have ever been on, because we did lots of cool stuff. Like going to the water park in Jamberoo .then we went to a really cool beach house right next to the beach. On the beach I found lots of shark eggs, and the sand was so clean it squeaked when I walked on it. Then we went to Byron bay in Australia and we had lots of sushi because it's my favourite food.

Touring Sydney

We really only had two full days to tour a bit of Sydney but we did our best to cover as much ground as possible. Saturday's weather was mixed so we decided to try one of the walking tours from the Sydney guide book.

We caught the free bus (555) down George St to Circular Quay and walked down towards the Opera House. This walk also gave …

Arrived on time and with all our luggage intact so we can call that a victory. We decided to do the shuttle bus from the airport to our downtown hotel. It seemed the most cost effective option and gets you door to door for $15pp. Our driver picked up a few chums at the domestic terminal who were in town for a good time. We had the added tour of …

Day started, as ever, with availing myself of the free breakfast in the Hilton – unlike the last couple of Hiltons this was the full cooked lard attack experience and was excellent – but I need an intervention as this trip is making me soooo fat! This of course will not stop me heading down for more tomorrow.

Now, there was at …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Sydney

    A good hotel

    from

    Stayed there for a week in October'05.

    Not good enough!

    from

    Not even going to go on about this as I could - in great detail. The bottom line is that this is meant to be a 4 star hotel (in some places it's listed as 5: yeah, right!) and considering the amount one is paying you do not expect small rooms, bad room layous, bad lighting, cold room service, old fittings in the bathrooms and generally what mixes together to make it a 2 1/2 star experience. Even more amazing to think they closed it for an amazing renovation - so epxectations are high: and ALL because of their promotions, I might add. I am all for the old saying you get what you pay for. But am not in favour of the revised version that many hotels seem to follow these days: you DON'T get what you paid for. Don't stay here if you want to pay a lot of money for an ordinary experience - ok, so the views are great but you don't eat, sleep or feel the view.

    Perfect Hotel for Sydney

    from

    Stayed in the hotel last week, thought it was the perfect hotel for Sydney, close to all amenities, circular quay, darling harbour, the tower, shopping, casino etc.... Train station pretty much underneath hotel. Loads of bars and restaurants nearby.

    My second stay in a couple of weeks

    from

    Here is my report on Stay #2 at the new Sydney Hilton. My earlier report is on this site. I plan to stay here quite a bit in my quest for HH Diamond status this year, so have taken it upon myself to get to know the place very well, and the many room types, which at first glance are pretty confusing.

    What were you all expecting?

    from

    I am shocked by the bad reviews the Hilton has got. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and I will agree that it is not up there with the best but it is still above averge.

    Give it a miss

    from

    With all of the hype I was expecting much more.

    the rooms are ok, the food is terrible (for the price).

    The staff are obnoxious.

    Would not recommend it at all, there are much better hotels in Sydney.

    Good effort - but not good enough....

    from

    Great looking hotel, with a host of friendly staff, but it doesnt quite fill the space that it should.

    Umm...not that exciting

    from

    The hotel has been refurb, but the rooms are small and the bathrooms even smaller.

    For the money Sydney offers many other hotels which can deliver much better accomadation.

    For me, a business traveller the rooms are the key, and this would be my one and only stay at the Hilton.

    The rooms lack design for the traveller, just cramped in the stuff.

    The Glass bistro was ok, but very pretencious....wine list was bottle shop wine so over priced it was an insult.

    Hilton Grand Opening

    from

    The refurbished Hilton Sydney reopening with a bang - quite literally. All the staff were out in force to promote the official opening, along with a band that would not have looked out of place in Rio, lots of drums and whistles. The foyer of the Hilton is all glass and marble with an amazing sculpture but unfortunately is a wind tunnel and is quite cool. There were teething problems with the Cino Cafe in the foyer - having to wait 45 mins for a salad wrap and coffee is not really acceptable in a hotel claiming 5 stars. The rooms were very well appointed and although not large are very well laid out. The bathrooms are very light and compact but functional and there has been great attention to detail with fittings. Double glazing in the windows would have assisted with keeping the street noise down - as would some signage in the room that there were electronic shutters. An incident with my room door being left open by housekeeping did not sit well with me - but it was dealt with very seriously by the security staff. The food cannot be faulted - it was delicious - although we couldn't get into the Zeta Bar one evening, 'list only'! Unfortunately there were also teething problems with the elevators and being caught in one for an hour with eleven other people was not very pleasant and even though compensation was promised, one week later and have yet to have any contact from the Hilton Sydney. BUT I am giving it another go ...

    Avoid Hilton Sydney Airport

    from

    I travelled to Australia as education consultant of an Australian university. On my return trip to Manila, I was booked by the university for an overnight stay at the Hilton Sydney Airport. I was informed by a notice from the university that the booking covered room, meals and phone. The reservation was confirmed through a fax by Hilton reservation officer with the university submitting its company credit card number.I arrived at the hotel before midnight of 15 April 2003 from a long and weary travel and was looking forward to much needed rest. However, at front desk, I was promptly informed that my reservation was exclusively for room stay only. Then, I was curtly told that I was not going to be accommodated unless I present my own personal credit card. I was inclined to disagree but was too tired and wanted to catch some sleep immediately. I obliged and presented my card.The next day, to my surprise, I discovered that my credit card was charged $100 by Sydney Hilton Airport. I called front desk from Manila and was told the charge was for deposit guarantee in the event that I incur "incidental expenses".Being charged for some future "possible" expense violates universal fair trade practice. Charging an imagined expense to one's account, and doing so without the courtesy of informing or asking for one's approval is outrightly illegal.But more than this, the incident indicates discriminatory practice by front desk personnel, if not the company Hilton Sydney Airport.
