Great location, close to CBD and within walking distance to the docks and harbors. On the outskirts of Chinatown. Cab ride to downtown is around $20 AU give or take. Cabs are always available out front of the hotel. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast included in the room price is very good with many choices. If you want a special order from the kitchen, they are very accommodating. This is our second stay at this hotel, no issues.

Hi, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to submit a detailed review. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour and our staff was able to make your stay memorable. Buffet breakfast at Shipley's Restaurant is most certainly a guest favorite and brilliant way to star the day! We hope to welcome you back to the hotel soon :)
