Welcome to the Hilton Sydney
A massive health club, a spa, three bars, two restaurants, and sweeping views over the downtown skyline let you live it up in swank style at the Hilton Sydney, one of the city's top-rated hotels among Priceline guests.
The high-rise Hilton houses 577 sleek rooms with spectacular city views. Distinctive furnishings such as chaise longues, glass work desks, extra-tall windows with blackout shades, and LCD TVs are found in all rooms. Pillows can be special-ordered to suit guests' tastes, and the spa-like bathroom is a place you'll never want to leave: it comes equipped with fluffy robes, multiple showerheads, designer toiletries and Aquavision TV sets (in some bathrooms). The fitness center offers an 80-foot-long indoor swimming pool, cardio equipment, free weights, a sauna, a steam room and an extra-large hot tub; after a workout, enjoy a soothing body treatment at the on-site spa. Guests can get drinks at the rooftop bar, the Victorian-era bar or the tapas bar. The award-winning brasserie serves up the tastes of France, while the lobby cafe specializes in casual meals and takeout. Valet and self-parking is available for a fee.
The Hilton is across the street from the iconic Queen Victoria Building in the heart of Sydney's downtown shopping and entertainment district, known for its trendy boutiques, restaurants and theaters. The nearest metro station is a half-block away, which provides access to attractions further afield such as Bondi Beach and Olympic Park. Darling Harbour and Sydney Aquarium are both a 10-minute walk. The hotel is seven miles from Sydney Airport.
Priceline guests give the Hilton Sydney the thumbs up for its "incredibly helpful" staff, as well as high-end amenities like "fabulous" showers with television sets and "comfortable" beds with lots of pillow choices.

The hotel needs a casual restaurant that has decent lighting where a guest can read or a couple can have a conversation.

The staff was incredibly helpful in setting up bookings and directing us to places we wanted to visit. Loved the "pillow service" where you can order different pillows depending on what you like - for free. Location was a bit far from Sydney Harbor, but very close to Darling Harbor. We still could walk to everywhere we wanted, though. Very nice stay!

The hotel was very pleasant and the staff welcoming. Our room was ready on arrival at midday which was great. The room was nicely decorated but on the small side. Big desk which took up a lot of room and with no lighting over/on it seemed pointless.
The beds were very comfortable and had a choice of pillow types if you ask for them. Loved the bathroom with the light in the shower. ...
