Nice modern hotel in great location”
We stayed in the Parkroyal Darling Harbour Hotel in Sydney only for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is very modern, clean and nice. Checkin was easy and friendly. The rooms are large, modern, clean and the bathroom very nice. Just the view to the back of the hotel is nothing. Breakfast was fantastic with fresh fruits, fruit juice, huge choice of food (bread, sausages, egg station, Asian food, cereals etc) which is really nice!! The gym is a bit small but sufficient. Overall we can totally recommend the hotel. Of course DArling Harbour is a convenient and nice location with bars, shops, restaurants, sights etc all over.
Best Parkroyal I've ever stayed”
We were mostly satisfied with our stay in Parkroyal Darling Harbour. Definitely one of the best hotel we've ever stayed. We were early because our flight arrived at 7 am. We reached Parktoyal at 9am and the frontliner named Emilia offered us an upgrade to a King Club Room with breakfast and access to Club Lounge. Thanks to her, our room was on 9th floor with the beautiful view of Darling Harbour! The shower experience was one of the best too, with spacious bathroom and well equipped amenities (they even provide an international charger). We tried the Club Lounge, and they serve a nice variety of food, cheese, and wines. Its location is right in the heart of darling harbour and within walking distance to everything u wanna do (shops, pubs, casino, cafes). We would go back someday to this hotel
The customer service offered at ParkRoyal Darling Harbour was absolutely outstanding. The staff ensured they went above and beyond to accommodate for all of our needs and were continually checking if there was anything they could do for us. The location was excellent, being only a short walk to Darling Harbour and shopping precincts with the ability to walk to Circular Quay if needed. At night, the street noise was minimal allowing for little disturbances and the bed was extremely comfortable making for a good nights sleep. The room was spacious and included all necessities for a short stay in Sydney. I would definitely recommend and I would return to ParkRoyal for another stay in the future.
Sydney's home away from home”
The moment we stepped into the hotel, we knew we made the right choice. Checking in was a breeze, hotel concierge was very efficient. We were immediately given a map of the area, plus some magazines to bring to our room to read. Tour brochures were readily available at the lobby. the entire hotel smelled so nice and clean. Our room was very spacious, compete with amenities like coffee, tea, and toiletries. Daily newspapers were brought to our room. The hotel is within walking distance to many tourist attractions, dining and shopping areas. The staff was very helpful, friendly and courteous. Going to the airport can be arranged through the concierge. The airport shuttle picks up passengers for a fee of $14, much cheaper than taking a taxi. Parkroyal Darling Harbour Hotel far exceeded our expectations!
we stayed at parkroyal hotel on our recent trip to sydney. we're glad that we were assigned to a newly refurbished room with big double beds. the renovation currently implemented by the hotel did not have any effect on our stay as we are out most of the time. love the location of the hotel as it is accessible to the major establishments. it's just a short walk to chinatown, cbd and darling harbour. wifi is free , hotel staff are friendly, polite and very helpful. special mention to the singaporean concierge named wen for being very helpful, and friendly suggesting us places to see ; eat and making our stay in sydney as comfortable and fun as possible.
Our First Visit To Australia”
This was our first visit to Sydney and we couldn't have picked a better hotel to stay at. The location was near Darling Harbour and all the shops and restaurants that are located in that area. We had an early check in, but as our room was not ready we left our cases and went for a walk, which we really needed after a 16 hour flight. Woke us up and we had lunch near the harbor, which was a delight. Arrived back and found our cases in the room and the room (which we had asked for a harbor view) was very clean with complimentary bottled water robs and slippers. Also we had access to the 9th floor lounge which was a big plus. The staff at the hotel made us feel very welcome and the concierge had quite a few helpful tips on places to see and visit. We were there for three night and were to drive to Canberra using a pre book rental car. I went to pick up the car and was told that no car was available and that there where no cars to rent in Sydney due to the Chinese New Year. We asked the concierge to help and within 30 mins. we had a car that we could rent. Both my wife and I are truly thankful for the service and compassion shown by the hotel staff in making sure our vacation could carry on as planned. Apart from the I think that the overall service was great, Breakfast was very good with a very big selection of foods to choose from. Latte coffee machines are fun but the real thing is better. Great Hotel and Service, Wonderful Location, Will Return One Day
Great location near Darling Harbour!”
We stayed 3 nights in Parkroyal Darling Harbour Hotel for our honeymoon. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is within 5 minutes walk to the Darling Harbour, where a lot of excellent restaurants are located. The hotel room is tidy and the staff is very nice to us. We were offered free wifi after applying the membership of the hotel.
Great location and good service”
We had a smooth and very comfortable stay at the Parkroyal hotel. We were able to check in much earlier than anticipated which was very good as we wanted to freshen up before heading out for a full day of sight seeing. The hotel's location is very good. Close to the town hall train station and very close to the darling harbour/cockle bay area. This area is very bustling with family friendly entertainment and restaurants. This hotel is also a short walk to the Sydney Casino and close to light rail stops to take you around the city. The staff were very helpful and rooms were very clean and spacious.
Well Located Hotel”
my stay at parkroyal darling harbour was a memorable one. being well located at darling harbour, i was able to travel easily to prymont bay, chinatown and the rocks at equal travelling time. the hotel was efficient in meeting my needs such as sending up additional tissue box when required. the staff were friendly and provided sound recommendation of dinner places.
The best stay ever”
It is located close to the attractions places and easily connect to the public transport however the door for the entrance only one as the main entrance. The hotel is quite clean and not noisy. I totally recommend this hotel for family stay. For malay and muslim the rrstaurants are nearest the hotel which is located at chinatown. The shopping area is at george street which is 10minutes walking and the nearest subway station is town hall. The rate for the transport (taxi) to airport is about aud70-80. For me it is not expensive for the maxi taxi. From the hotel room we can see the sydney tower and also the darling harbour. My family and i love to restay here if we travel to sydney again.
definitely will come back ”
we stayed for 3 nights in sydney, it was my son and my first trip to sydney ( while my husband used to work in sydney for 3 years)we love the hotel!!! actually, it was beyond our expectation. hotel is under the renovation when we stayed there, but still a pretty clean hotel ... we flew from perth and got there at 7 am in the morning, we realize we couldn't go straight check in to the room, so we have breakfast first to kill the time.. breakfast menu is varies. finish breakfast at 9 am we talked to the receptionist we knew we shouldnt get any room before 12 or 1 pm, but the receptionist there was very helpful and friendly. she did an excellent job and made us get the room as soon as one of the room empty and put us in at 10am. she understands that we were tired and exhausted and all we want just to have good sleep. room is amazing, even have renovation, but didnt bother us at all. i went there with my husband and a year old baby boy and we had great sleeps there. location is the best near darling harbour and made easy for us to go anywhere just by walking! definitely will come back again stayed october 2012, traveled with family
We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at the Parkroyal with our two adult children. We were given an adjoining room which was great. The hotel staff organised a bottle of champagne for our room which was a lovely surprise. We loved the rooms which were beautifully furnished and the beds were really comfortable. Check in and out was very fast and the staff was efficient and friendly. Walking distance to Darling Harbour. I would definitely recommend this newly refurbished hotel to anyone.
Great location, friendly staff. ”
Hotel is well positioned, more fringe of the CBD than Darling Harbour but that gives you easy access to both. Easy drive in from the airport or by rail if you wish. The staff were friendly from the valet parking at arrival to check in and housekeeping. We needed an upgrade and a late checkout and nothing was too much trouble. Awesome room with adjacent lounge area with a great view over Darling Harbour. Room can be darkened to allow us to sleep off jet lag - brilliant!! The breakfast served in the executive lounge was also one of the better hotel breakfasts I have had. Bathroom was clean and tidy, spacious and well appointed. A shower head that dumps water all over you - another brilliant thing. Staff were happy to accommodate our needs with some work that needed to be done. Spoil yourself and go for the upgrade which was really good. The only down side was the noise from renovations going own but when we were in our room that was blocked out.
Lovely hotel and great location”
We had interconnecting rooms and they were just lovely. One king bed in one and two double beds in the other for our teenage children. Very spacious and comfortable spaces. We had booked the basic rooms and these also included robes, which I find in most hotels these are kept for the more deluxe rooms so this was a nice touch. The hotel itself was undergoing but this did not interfered with our stay at all. The staff were polite however did not have a friendly feel about them, a bit stiff to be honest and on check-in were more interested in taking a $100 per room deposit and not explaining anything else about the hotel. We were not informed where breakfast was to be held etc (included in our package), and the location was different due to the renovations. Also, when we did get to breakfast the next morning, the restaurant wanted to charge us for it on the way out as we weren't down on their list of people who's package included breakfast. It was sorted out eventually, however a bit annoying. The breakfast was buffet and was ok, pretty standard. Other than that, as mentioned earlier, loved the rooms (and we had got them on early-bird special, so were well priced), and the location is wonderful for stepping out on foot and heading to darling harbour, chinatown, city shopping etc. Circular Quay is also only a train stop away from Town Hall which is less than 5 minute walk away. No swimming pool at the hotel which disappointed my children, howeve with all to see and do around the place this didn't matter a great deal. Overall, very happy.
Nice hotel located with good location”
Changed hotel to Parkroyal after staying at The Menzies - Park Royal is a light colored hotel with nice clean rooms - plenty of space in rooms and tv. Internet is acceptable - remember to sign up for bonus program at check in - then it is free of charge whole stay. Easy access to Darling Harbour area and train station. 15-20 min walk to the rock area. shopping street can be reach in 10-15 min. and restaurants are present both at darling harbour and nearby streets within 5-10 min. walk.
Our first trip "downunder"”
The Crowne Plaza Darling Harbour Hotel was just what their website said it would be. We choose this hotel on our own and couldn't have been more pleased. After a 14 hour plane ride from USA, we had need of naps in the afternoon before and after exploring more of Sydney. We always asked for a wake-up call and were always woken up when we requested it. Also the business office was very helpful in helping us keep in touch with family in the States. Thanks again for making our adventure to our 7th continent perfect.
Strategic Location & Superb Service”
The location of Park Royal Darling Harbor is very strategic as it is just a few minutes walk away from darling harbor and around 10 minutes walk to Chinatown. Hotel staffs are very courteous and are always willing to help and assist hotel guests. The concierge even helped us arrange a car service from hotel to airport at a good price. Hotel is very safe as no outsiders can go up to the rooms as one needs key cards to access the hotel elevators. Rooms are spacious and clean. However, they can still improve cleanliness especially the carpet under the bed. It was a great experience for us at Park Royal even better than a 5-Star hotel I stayed in Sydney CBD last October 2015. Overall, I will rate this hotel as excellent. Keep up the good work Park Royal On Darling Harbor team!
I stayed here with a friend and we were both impressed with all aspects of the ParkRoyal, Darling Harbour. Staff were particularly welcoming and helpful. Room was spacious and immaculately clean. Beds super comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and other travellers.
Will love to stay here again”
Although it was pricey but it worth for the grand experience. The location was great, located in the city centre enable us to walk to darling harbour and the shopping area easily. The staffs were very polite and helpful. Didn't try the breakfast Buffet but would love to try it another time in Sydney. Great access to restaurants around the hotel which is great. Is cheap to travel even with cab as the hotel is close to most of the tourist spots. The only down side is the city view from the room was not that much. Because it is not very tall, we can see the room in the flat next to the hotel.
Great location. Good Hotel.”
We searched high and low for a reasonably priced hotel in Sydney that was close to Darling Harbour and ended up deciding on the Parkroyal. We're pretty glad we did. Greeted by happy, welcoming staff who promptly checked us in to our clean, modern room with lots of natural light. The view wasn't spectacular but overall we were really happy with the room. I'd recommend this hotel for those who don't need the 5 star treatment, just a nice modern hotel in a good spot with great staff.
