paul_in_melb TripAdvisor review

This is my fourth or fifth stay at the Sofitel Darling Harbour. I very much enjoy the hotel and the location. This trip I tried Atelier restaurant and very much enjoyed the food. The Ambience can be improved but the food was fantastic and affordable. My only concern is the firmness of the beds. I did ask the executive lounge to see what could be done to make them a bit softer but I received no feedback and no action on my request which was strange. The executive lounge is definitely the highlight of the property. Perched 35 floors above darling harbour the view is terrific and worth staying for. A special thanks to Elmo for your service and great humour!

Decent location, good food options would stay again

I had a day off work on ANZAC Day so I thought I celebrate the commemorative day by staying at the Sofitel Darling Harbour. My stay was enjoyable and the booking was seamless. What really impressed me was I needed a charging cable for my phone and the staff in housekeeping was able to lend me one. It was such a kind gesture. I have been to Sofitel Darling Harbour many times and will continue to come. Cannot wait for the spa to open.

Excellent location & Gorgeous Sydney Views

A great stay with wonderful and friendly reception and valet staff. Stunning hotel, comfortable bed and pillows. Luxurious toiletries. Nice touch with the robe and slippers. Thank you Trixie for answering all my questions. Disappointed with the buffet breakfast. Breakfast was dry with limited choices. Excellent location with wonderful views.

Hi, As an Accor member for almost 15 years, I had decided to rejoin, My overall experience was quite good, The only disappointment was the cost of the Club which I thought was excessive. In the past years, I would enjoy a pre-dinner drink, as they were always quite basic in the selection. I will reconsider another hotel when I return in a few months.

Amazing customer service

Extremely professional and warm staff. Accomodating and helpful. Excellent location! Housekeeping was amaaaaazing! the room was immaculate. The housekeeping did leave me a cheeky note which I thought was funny but some may think otherwise. Pool and gym are fantastic. Would certainly recommend staying here

The Sofitel knows how to treat their guests. Stayed for two nights for my birthday. Food in Atelier restaurant was exquisite, rooms are well appointed and beds very comfortable. We had executive club access which had the best food of any executive club I have been in. Elmo the attendant in the club is a pro and really knows how to treat his guests. He has the perfect balance between quietly respecting privacy and having a genuine conversation. His service is second to none. Highly recommended

MarioTurcarelli Business - TripAdvisor review

This was our second stay at this Hotel. Whilst there was a mix up in the room allocation, the staff were efficient and friendly and tried to make up for it. The Valet parking is busy, and very tight, but the staff work hard to get your car as quick as they can. Both the Level 3 Bar and restaurant were busy but good. And the club Millesmine was at the Sofitel expected level. The room was very clean and well fitted out with Magnificent views of Darling harbour. Overall a very good hotel.

Bonjour MarioTurcarelli, Thank you for you review. I am so pleased the team were able to look after you. I have passed on your feedback. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Greg Brady - General Manager

sothpaw81 TripAdvisor review

Great service from the staff upon arrival with an upgrade to the Darling harbour view room, as apposed to the original booking for the standard city view. Staff were kind enough to allow a slightly longer checkout and the room was AMAZING!!! My favourite hotel which I stay at regularly throughout the year and one I definitely would recommend to all. Unfortunately the price has increased quite a bit since previous year, but that's like all things since COVID.

Bonjour sothpaw81, Thank you for review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again, Greg Brady - General Manager
