About Holiday Inn Darling Harbour, Haymarket

Convenient home base in cosmopolitan Darling Harbour

Short walk from Chinatown

Holiday Inn Darling Harbour places you in Sydney's entertainment district, steps from bustling Chinatown and opposite Qantas Credit Union Arena. Cockle Bay Wharf is a 10-minute stroll through Tumbalong Park, and a free shuttle bus takes you to Circular Quay in under 10 minutes.

Harbor cruises, sea life

You can marvel at sea life at Sydney Aquarium, a 10-minute walk, and take in views of Sydney Opera House on a harbor cruise. Paddy's Markets, a 3-minute walk from the hotel, is handy for picking up fresh produce, clothing, and souvenirs; there's a light-rail station here, too.

Breakfast buffet, sauna

Tasty buffet breakfasts at Shipley's Restaurant are a great start to the day, and JB's Bar is the spot to recharge with a drink after a day of sightseeing. The fitness center is conveniently open 24 hours a day; afterward, you can relax in the sauna, steam room, and hot tub.

Premium cable, WiFi

All 370 smoke-free guestrooms have free WiFi to keep you connected. Flat-screen TVs come with premium cable and video games; if you're feeling hungry, you can grab a treat from the mini-fridge or order snacks from 24-hour room service.

Good stay in Sydney

Hotel in need of upgrade
Hotel in need of updates. The bathroom had old, molded tile. The mattresses were old and uncomfortable. WiFi was limited and a hassle for the family to all be able to use it. It was a good location, close to Darling Harbour and within walking distance of our needs but would not stay there again.

Great staff and breakfast. Rooms are pretty basic but are more than adequate. Close to train station but a bit far from main attractions. Easy access though so would not stop me from staying here again!
