Sheraton On the Park

About to book and just noticed the Sheraton. It seems a really good value and the hotel gets good reviews. How is the location for a vacation? Has anyone stayed there? Thanks in advance.

I have not stayed there. But this is a really good location to do all of the main sights in the CBD on foot without relying on any transport.

The Sheraton is located across from Hyde Park and is in the central shopping area of Sydney. From this location it is very easy to walk to Pitt Street Mall - this is where you will find dining outlets located in Sydney Westfield. The Galeries Victoria and the Queen Victoria Building are also easily walkable.

In fact anwhere is walkable from this location - even Darling Harbour and the Quay. It all comes down to your interests really, age and fitness.

The Sheraton Hotel is in an excellent location especially for shopping. The hotel also has an terrific seafood buffet in the Botanica Brasserie Restaurant.

Good location for shopping. I don't really like the park opposite, it looks fine from above but it isnt a park I like to linger in. On a vacation though, I would opt for a Hotel in or nearer Circular Quay most especially if its in the summer months. I am not really over enamoured with this Hotel and I cant really put my finger on it. I just think there are better Hotels in Sydney. If price sways you, then its fine, but a few extra dollars may get you something substantially better.

Hello!

The hotel is in an excellent location.

For reviews from guests, see: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g255060-d256637…

Unsurprisingly, the reviews are overwhelmingly very positive.

Happy travelling!

I've stayed there a few times and I really like the ambience and we've always had great customer service there - I hope that nothing has changed !

See if you can get breakfast included in your rate and if you do, go early to get a seat by the window so you can look out at Hyde Park.

A city view room will most likely result in you looking out onto Castlereagh Street which is not nearly as interesting as a view of Hyde Park.

This hotel is in a great position, the rooms that look over the park are lovely and the breakfast is good. However, I would not stay there again as the sheets are awful. I really can't understand why Sheraton don't use cotton sheets. The sheets are a scratchy feeling polyester blend. It's such a shame, because this hotel is very good value.
