My favourite place to stay in Sydney! The executive lounge staff are faultless - Phuong is amazing as always! Mitchell, Tien, Wayne - absolute legends! Special mention to the newest addition to the exec staff - Titan! Love his vibe, personality & character! Have meant him once - feel like I have known him forever! Can not recommend this team enough!

I have had the pleasure to stay twice this month and it is great to have the hotel returning to normality after a long two and a half years. It may seem small, but to be greeted in Club Millesime to check in was greatly appreciated. The friendly greetings and the service from the staff, to the cleanliness of the hotel is a credit to the Accor brand. They recognised my Platinum Status and the benefits that came with it. I would like to highlight the staff in Club Millesime who provided outstanding service during our stay and made us feel as valued Platinum members. Nothing was too much to ask and we really enjoyed our stay. Congratulations on your new role and I hope Accor remains the leading hotel brand, not only in Australia but the whole Asia Pacific.

Bonjour 665garyl, Thank you for your loyalty. I appreciate your kind words and are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Greg Brady - General Manager

We are repeat Accor customers and have recommended it to friends and felt the dining room had become very tired and the food was disappointing. Consideration should be given to an upgrade.

Bonjour Barbara , We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. Good and bad feedback are equally appreciated and provide us with the opportunity to reflect on areas of improvement. It is quite disappointing and surprising to hear the negative feedback as our Executive Chef and team constantly strive to provide an exceptional experience and we are sincerely sorry we have missed the mark on this occasion. Rest assured, the feedback provided will be shared with the Restaurant Manager and Executive Chef to ensure we consistently deliver upon our dinners expectations. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Linda Komadina Guest Experience Executive Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

Impossible get a lift at 11am as everyone else was checking out. Took over 20 minutes. Not value for money. Superior room was very ordinary for the price.

Bonjour Mr G., Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. I am really sorry that the lifts took longer time than usual and I have followed up with housekeeping failing to set up towels for 3 guests. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Sincerely, Mehul Desai Guest Experience Manager Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour
