Glad we stayed there. Very close to harbor and activities. Breakfast, snacks, and happy hour food welcomed. They offer showers and resting area for early arrivals. Staff excellent. Would use again. Pick up for tours close, and easy walk to the Rocks and Opera House

Room Tip: Room with harbor view

The location is great but I did not enjoy my stay.

I am a platinum member and I did not see any recognition - I stayed over a month for business and had to request 2 - 3 times to move to a room with a better view

Food was very average and so were the rooms and fitness club - apart from some smiling faces at the lounge, I really did not see any effort to 'wow' your experience

Also, I need to mention that a fire alarm went off around midnight while I was still working at the lounge and I had to find the way to reception myself - very bizarre and I would have expected some seriousness from hotel staff

I was part of a group visiting Sydney for the first time. Marriott was a top notch host. We continue to say how elated we were with the facility, staff, and the food was outstanding. I will use Marriott on future holidays.

Room Tip: The room was always clean and toiletries provided.

Property is abit old, even thou the hotel lobby has been refurbished recently.
This can be seen in the hotel room, washroom, and Executive lounge and fitness centre.
Properties in Asia seem to have better and newer facilities which can't seem to be found in this property.
Executive lounge selection is very limited and cannot be compared to others.
Toilets in accommodation room can be seen that is still in the 90s design.
Fitness centre also feels like 90s property.

But the service staff is fantastic, well on the ball being attentive to their guest in lobby, from doormen to front counter staff has got a fantastic service.

Being a platinum member I've gotten complimentary upgrade to a opera house facing corner suite , which is out of my expectation.

Hopefully this property get a make-over in the accommodation rooms soon!

The Marriott Circular Quay is a 30 story Marriott close to the water and it's attractions and eateries. I find it to be a slightly dated but clean property with rooms on the small side. I was given an upgraded suite with views of rooftops and a large crane with an offset view of the Sydney bridge. I'm not sure what they upgrade was, other than the partial view of the bridge. Since I am a Marriott loyalist, I preferred to stay at this Marriott over the brand new Sofitel next to the convention center. The Sofitel is absolutely gorgeous, located right at the heart of the action of the harbor but alas it is not Marriott.

I found the executive lounge to be very nice, the breakfast had all of the required items plus a few surprise charcuterie items that I found to be delightful. One complaint however, the eggs, masquerading as cooked looked more like cottage cheese most days than actual cooked eggs. I'm not sure who likes them like this, but I have an acceptable range and these were not within my limits. Other items that were impressive were the addition of Muesli and dried fruit available for cereal and oatmeal.

The room was essentially clean but I had to call after 5 days to get my sheets changed. Had I not called, I am convinced that no sheet changes would have been done. I had no DND signs on my door, nor did I subscribe to any Marriott program that would have prevented them from giving me clean linens. To be fair, the night manager sent up a bellman to change my sheets (since there's no housekeeping on staff at night) and I taught the bellman how to change sheets. It was pretty funny to be honest. I taught him how to do it military-style as well as hospital corners. He was a great guy, wanted to help in any way possible, he just wasn't equipped from his upbringing to change a sheet.

I wasn't offered any sort of compensation for having to call to get my sheets changed or having to change my own sheet but I did notice my room was extra tidy the next day. Apparently housekeeping received the message loud and clear.

Two other concerns, in the evening, the Internet is unusably slow. I needed to review some online YouTube videos for my presentations during my conference and was unable. Also the elevators were extremely slow at times.

I didn't try the restaurants in the hotels as they were attempting to cater to some mysterious upscale clientele with the prices to match. I found much better options a block away but the prices are a bit high everywhere.

Room Tip: The upgraded King suites aren't much of an upgrade. Didn't hear much above or on the sides o...
