If you're in search for some #relaxation then the #Sheraton on the Park in #Australia will fit your needs. Within a great location and with all the facilities you need around you, this is a perfect stop off hotel when travelling through.


With the prospect of being stuck in Sydney for the night I made a last minute booking at Sheraton on the Park in Sydney. I was fortunate to get a great discount for the City Side Room. Upon my arrival there were no queues for check in and I was offered an upgrade to the Executive Suite overlooking Hyde Park for an extra $50, which I took. The room was substantial (70sqm in size) with a large L shaped lounge, separate bedroom, and a walk in wardrobe that led to the bath.

Whilst the room was nice that was all I received for my money. A late night swim wasn't on the cards as the pool level was inaccessible after 10pm. With a bottle of water costing $9 in the room I decided stopping at a convenience store after dinner was a necessity.

The staff were very helpful in pointing me in the direction of restaurants, however, as most kitchens had already closed by 9pm I found myself at the hotel restaurant.

Although the meal was adequate, it was what I would expect of a moderately priced family restaurant with a $20 price tag, not the $42 I was stung with. Not only did my meal take an exorbitant amount of time to prepare (despite me being the only person in the restaurant) the 'gluten free' meal that they produced was in no way free of gluten and lead to a rather horrid night.

The bed was incredibly comfortable, the climate control somewhat simple to operate and the check out a breeze. However, I was again disappointed when I was informed that breakfast was by no means free or even discounted. So off I trundled down the street to pay $22 for a measly 3 egg omelette.

As there are numerous high end hotels in Sydney to experience I wouldn't stay here again in a hurry. However, if it’s a large room with a great bed you're looking for for the night then this will more than suit.
