I have stayed at the Sofitel numerous times. Me and my partner were celebrating our anniversary and usually when we do so, we should get things such as champagne or a cheese plate, which was a bit disappointing. Also, I called reception around 5 times to request late check out with no answer and no call back. I then texted the number I was given and no one replied, we ended up giving up and checking out. However, we had excellent service on the club lounge

Bonjour Carol, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. I am really disappointed to learn that we missed out on acknowledging your special occasion. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the failure in execution. I am pleased that you enjoyed the service at our Club Millesime. We appreciate you sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Mehul Desai Guest Experience Manager Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

We usually use our free night when we stay at Sofitel and received a free upgrade to a superb room on the 20th floor. Magnificent, thank you very much. We love the Sofitel brand and you never fail to impress us. Your professionalism and friendly, helpful staff keep us coming back. Cannot wait for our next opportunity to stay with you again.

Great location if you've got plans in the Darling Harbour precinct. (Still quite a bit of construction going on in this area). I had plans a little further up the harbour at Barangaroo which is a lovely walk along the waterfront on a cool evening.

Luxurious and friendly

Everything about my stay at Sofitel darling Harbour was exceptional, from start to finish. The check in process was simple and service from all staff was above and beyond. I was fortunate enough to receive an upgrade and my room was incredible. The standard of cleanliness and housekeeping was perfect and the staff thought of everything. Although the hotel was busy, there was never a long wait for elevators or at counters and I have already told anyone who will listen that they must make time for a stay. I will most certainly be back- can't wait!

Superb!

Check in was fast and efficient . Remarked it was my 40th Birthday to the check in agent . Thought they'd send up wine or a card or something .... as it was a special occasion . Got nothing . Disappointed in other hotels we'd stayed in around the world theyd sent at least a happy birthday note. Paying $750 a night i'd also expect some bubble bath or bombs for the bath as it is a feature and was to be a highlight of our stay. But no nothing . Cheap UHT milk in the fridge also . Hardly suite worthy . I am wondering what the point of reserving a time for breakfast if you are going to make guests wait for 15 mins in a line with everyone else who hadnt made a reservation . Breakfast was also disappointing with just a small spread of pastries and yogurt . Not exactly the breakfast we expected. Staff at the property were friendly. Ive stayed in major chain hotels previously around the world and always been wowed . This hotel left us lacking and I dont think for the price tag - we'd be back. Great location though - shame about the lack luster feeling .

WanHG21 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Was celebrating our wedding that weekend and decided to treat the wife with a spectacular stay in Sofitel Darling Harbour - also because we cant go anywhere! The wife loves the bath overlooking the harbour so we obviously had to book a room with a view ! The Sofitel team was extremely attentive to our requests and were on top of it, even gave me a courtesy call and SMS to ensure I was well taken care prior to my arrival. The SMS service was really good, I was able to check when my room was ready so I would make my way to the hotel. I was offered a refreshing drink while waiting to check in - love this ! Not many hotels do this these days and its a refreshing welcome ! Definitely makes you feel special! Shout out to Francisco for taking care of our special requests so well (or my wife's!) she was definitely over the moon with the Junior Suite room overlooking Darling Harbour with the beautiful bathtub! The Club Lounge was impeccable with good service and view. Highly recommended to stay at Sofitel, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion, its definitely worthwhile!

TonyDiz 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Due toaccessing a free ight through Advantage plus via the phone the online operator decided to give me 2 separate bookings. I should have questioned this as I found it meant 2 separate rooms over the 2 nights, not what my family had in mind at all! While other staff "ummed and aahed" Renato, a duty manager cut through the issue by ensuring we would be in one room for both nights at the standard of the paid night. This saved a degree of angst and allowed us to enjoy the trip and the hotel as we expected we would. All other aspects of the hotels operation were at the normal, high standard of Sofitel and it continues to be our families hotel of choice when in Sydney.
