Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney

Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney is a luxury, executive hotel in Sydney's Central Business District (CBD) that caters primarily to business travelers. A variety of lodging options are available, from smaller, more affordable rooms with comfy office chairs and work desks to a Presidential Suite with a kitchen and dining/meeting room. There are also a swimming pool, steam room, well-equipped gym, and two restaurants, one of which offers a varied breakfast buffet and popular afternoon tea. The hotel has eight event spaces for up to 200 people, and offers free Wi-Fi throughout. Travelers looking for more extensive business facilities may want to check out the nearby Sofitel, which has a massive ballroom for up to 1,200 guests, though lacks a pool and charges for Wi-Fi.
Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel

Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The unique Blue Sydney was originally a 1,310-foot long wharf built in 1911 on Woolloomooloo Bay. The architecture and decor of this luxury boutique hotel retain this history, mixing bits of the industrial warehouse look with a chic, modern design. The 100 rooms and lofts have posh, nautical style, as well as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi (for a fee) -- but show some minor wear and tear. It's part of the Taj hotel chain, and is certainly one of the most luxurious hotels in Sydney -- located in a popular dining destination, near high-end restaurants and bars. The hotel's own on-site hot spot, WaterBar, is an impressive cathedral-meets-warehouse lounge with an extensive food and cocktail menu, stylish seating, stunning high ceilings and an overall ultra-cool ambiance. But it's a bit removed from more popular areas, such as the Central Business District.
1888 Hotel

1888 Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 90-room 1888 Hotel by 8Hotels is a trendy boutique property in the heart of Sydney's Darling Harbour area. Rooms have a rustic-meets-industrial-chic vibe, and all come with iPads, big flat-screen TVs, and free phone calls throughout the country. Although there's no pool or gym, guests of the 1888 get free access to the nearby Ian Thorpe Aquatic and Fitness Centre. On-site amenities include a restaurant and bar that serves breakfast and dinner (but no lunch), free Wi-Fi, a small business center, and a tiny meeting room suitable for small groups. Those in search of conference facilities may want to check out the nearby Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour, which lacks the funky charm of the 1888 but has a lot more space for meeting and events.
Sir Stamford at Circular Quay

Sir Stamford at Circular Quay Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The upscale Sir Stamford at Circular Quay is located next to the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Opera House. The hotel partly resides in a building that dates back to the 1800s -- and is currently listed in the National Heritage Register -- and its classically elegant façade and interior design reflect this history. The property is grand, to be sure, but it's also a bit past its prime. The spacious, bright rooms are charming and homey, with some lovely antiques, but the decor scheme is dated; the marble bathrooms are the clear highlight. The European style in the lobby and common spaces still impresses, however: In addition to Georgian antiques, eight fireplaces and 550 crystal chandeliers, the hotel also contains one of Australia’s largest private collections of fine art. The acclaimed on-site restaurant offers beautiful views of Sydney Harbour, while the stylish bar has a wide selection of high teas, wine and cocktails.
Pensione Hotel Sydney

Pensione Hotel Sydney Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Located on the fringe of the Chinatown district, this upper-middle-range, 72-room boutique has a historic facade and modern interiors. Each of the 68 rooms are small but clean and filled with character; they feature crisp white bedding, whimsical prints, and flat-screen TVs. Sleek bathrooms offer stall showers complete with rainforest showerheads. One big perk here is the guest lounge with comfy seating, a small kitchenette, computers for guest use, vending machines, and laundry facilities. It's a small property, so guests shouldn't expect much else in the way of amenities.
Harbour Rocks Hotel

Harbour Rocks Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 59-room Harbour Rocks Hotel is a historic boutique hotel in Sydney's famous Rocks neighborhood. It stands on the site that once housed Sydney's first hospital, and is housed in a series of 19th-century buildings that were collectively turned into a hotel in 1989. Rooms are spacious and have a stylish blend of dark, industrial-style interiors with pops of orange and rust hues alongside American Southwestern-style bed runners. The on-site restaurant is popular with guests and locals, and, while it's closed for lunch, room service is available around the clock. The upper-middle-range hotel does, however, fall short when it comes to additional amenities -- there's no pool, and the gym is tiny. For guests who want more facilities the Menzies has a pool, a big fitness center, and a hot tub, but it's a much larger hotel that lacks the intimate boutique feel of the Harbour Rocks Hotel.
