Rated 5 out of 5 by PeterJ3 Preserving history
The hotel has used the old Post Office was a setting for it's modern hotel. The accommodations are posh and comfortable. The many restaurants in the hotel are equal to the standards of the Westin. I found the catering and AV departments to be of the highest calibre. Overall, the staff are gracious and helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TimC67 Lacks a few things to be a winner
The Westin Sydney has a great location and access to restaurants in the GPO facility. I was upgraded to a suite which was nice but needs updating. There are no power outlets easily available near the night stand for phone charging/ipad etc. A big miss was lack of 24 hour fitness facility. These things need to be fixed if I were to stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sooz58 Fantastic experience as always
We just love the Westin - outstanding location, friendly and helpful staff, beautifully appointed rooms, luxurious linens, stunning bath/bathroom to relax and spoil your self in. What more could you want from a hotel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by whitehatch Great Hotel terrible swimming pool
What a fabulous hotel, great location, but why oh why is the pool so awful, it felt like going to the worse municipal pool ever known, not a top hotel in a big city - such a shame and what a let down, as a international traveller, I had no desire to use the changing facilities prior to my flight. Very disappointing

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sloo Below my expectations
Whilst the heritage building is undoubtedly beautiful and the location premium, the experience of staying at the Westin was not what I'd hoped. I book into 5 star hotels for special occasions only, and for my money I expect a certain amount of luxury and generosity of spirit. I didn't find the Westin terribly friendly, the room was comfortable but let down by little things like a crooked light fitting. The water, mini bar and condiments were exorbitantly priced. I will not be back. I will spend my luxury dollars where I feel welcomed, pampered and spoilt. That is, after all, the whole point.

The westin is a very comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Not quite the same as the busy old days with GPO down stairs but the hotel cannot be blamed for that.
Exuctive Lounge staff were excellent and the breakfast food in here is above average compared to others.
No complimentary bottle water policy is the only big negative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sand12 Impressive in every way
Room was extremely well appointed and clean, bed very comfortable. Staff were professional, personable, welcoming and extremely efficient. Two minor comments - the buffet breakfast could have been hotter, and there was only one option for tea in the room - need some herbal tea and decaffeinated coffee options. Couldn't fault it! Would definitely stay again.

Recommend the Westin to any person wishing to experience something special and memorable.
