Exceptional Hotel and Staff! Highly recommended”

Hotel was stunning and beautiful. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and swiftly checked into the hotel by the reception. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, clean and well upkept. Special complement to the Bell Captain, Mr. Philips who took time and care to ensure that all our needs are taken care of! Highly recommended! Looking forward to our next stay with Sofitel Darling Harbour once again!

Amazing Stay”

We have had an amazing stay at Sofitel! The staff were all super friendly and helpful, and went the extra mile to ensure everything went smoothly. We stayed at the Luxury corner room and it is stunning – beautiful view of Darling Harbour and super nice room overall. Did I mention the bubble bath?! We have also enjoyed the benefit brought with Club Millésime – the Afternoon tea and Pre-dinner drinks were amazing on level 35! There are many more highlights – just to touch up on a few more – nice Infinity swimming pool and filling & yummy big breakfast at the Atelier that came with our stay. I will definitely come back in the near future, can’t recommend this place more – hands down one of the very best hotels in Sydney.

Celebratory staycation”

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our recent engagement, as well as our birthdays. Our stay was lovely.The pool that overlooks darling harbour is picturesque and is surprisingly quiet. I wouldn't want to be staying in a room that is pool side on a lower level, because when you're in the pool you can see right into those rooms. We had a corner view room with a bath on a relatively high level so it was nice and private. The free nespresso in the room was a nice touch. My robe had a large hole in it, so I called down and they immediately brought another one with apologies. Overall the room was clean. In comparison, The Langham makes a bigger deal if you're there to celebrate a special occasion (free alcohol, macarons and a personalised message in chocolate), plus the staff were all notified and wished us well. At the Sofitel they didn't seem to care that we were there celebrating our engagement/birthdays - we got small generic cake with well wishes.

Our stay at Sofitel Darling Harbour was absolutely amazing. Sofitel got a mind blowing view of Darling Harbour with Infinity pool, & friendly staff. Also, having experienced the cozy bathtub with a sunset view was definitely the highlight of our stay. We will definitely come back & recommend Sofitel to our friends & relatives. ❤️
