“Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney -- awesome hotel, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This was the first time my wife and I visited Sydney, and the Radisson Blu made it a great time. When making the reservation, we mentioned it was our first visit and requested a room with a good view. They gave us the top floor with a balcony!

Throughout the stay, they did all the little things that confirm why there were so many excellent reviews of this hotel. Everyone was helpful/attentive, the room was great, and the location is right in the middle of everything. We actually walked to most places!

Overall, a wonderful stay and we'd recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks!

Room Tip: Even if you don't reserve a room with a balcony, add the request for a good view and you may end...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed 2 nights in a deluxe room at this property for a weekend city trip. On the positive side: the location was very convenient and the room was spotlessly clean. On the other hand, the room was also quite small and very plain; it felt more like a room in a 4-star hotel. Our biggest issue was with reception. The reception area is very small and both at check-in and check-out staff were not able to cope. We had to wait far too long on both occasions (30 minutes at check-in!) before being seen to. We also felt that AUD35 for the full breakfast was over-the-top for what was a much smaller selection than we usually get in similar hotels. Finally, given the room rate we would not recommend this hotel.

Radiss0nBluH0tel, General Manager at Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney, responded to this review, 29 February 2012
Dear PinoyDutch,

Thank you for taking the time to provide valuable feedback regarding your recent stay at the hotel.

I was disappointed to learn of the issues you experienced with the front desk, it is unacceptable that you were not served for 30 minutes after you arrived and that you experienced another delay at check out. I have spoken to the Front Office Manager and asked that he review his staffing levels to ensure that we are able to cope with peak periods and prevent a similar issue from occurring in the future.

I note your comments in relation to the pricing structure of our Bistro Fax Restaurant breakfast. We regularly compare the prices of our menus, and the selection of items on offer, to that of our competitors to ensure that we are competitive. I have however passed on your comments to the Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef for further review. I apologise for the disappointment and these matters caused you during your stay and thank you for bringing them to our attention.

PinoyDutch, we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back when you next travel to Sydney.

Sincerely,

Peter Tudehope
General Manager

Great stay in December 2011. Clean and comfortable room, but not at the 5 star standard of other Sydney hotels - nice but not luxurious. Concierge never spoke to us, reception service nothing special. The hotel restaurant, however, was exceptional. The staff were so lovely (I wish I could remember the name of the female manager), so helpful, and the food was fantastic. Breakfast was just as good. This was one of the highlights of our trip!
