Fabulous buffet breakfast
Another fantastic Christmas staycation at Hilton with my young family
We stayed in a beautiful Relaxation room on the top floor - L43 (which we selected through the online check-in function through the Hilton app - highly recommended!). All staff we encountered were top notch. While our room was not yet ready at 4 (past the 3pm check in time), we were welcomed to enjoy some nibbles and drink at the Executive Lounge on L36. Soon after, the lounge staff provided us with our room keys where we explored the various features of our room. Most notable of which was the spa tub with complementary bath crystals. Hilton Sydney have recently (within past 6 months at least) replaced their Peter Thomas Roth toiletries with Crabtree & Evelyn - Verbena & Lavender). I first came across the range back at Hilton Tokyo in 2017 and took a liking to it. Staff ensured our room was equipped with 2 cots for our young kids. This was promptly set up prior to our arrival at the room. As a Hilton Diamond member, we received premium wifi throughout the hotel - where speeds were impressive for the most part. We were also offered a choice of complementary buffet breakfast at either Glass restaurant on L2 or the Executive Lounge on L36. The Glass breakfast was, by far, more comprehensive - although can get quite busy during peak times. Food was top notch, although it would be good if barista coffee is complementary - at least for Diamond members. We didn't try the gym and pool this time - Fitness First have bought the rights to operate the facilities and will be operational a few months into 2019. The Hilton service staff through the Hilton app or Magic function were very professional, prompt and delivered above expectations. Canapes at the Executive Lounge (6-8pm daily) features a tended bar. Nibbles for the most part differed on the two nights we were staying at the hotel. The Lounge can get quite busy at times so get in early for a seat and table. Would definitely stay again (maybe another staycation next Christmas!) would love to try the Relaxation Suite next time.
Our Relaxation room on L43 was situated next to the staff storeroom / goods lifts. As such, could hear the lifts during peak periods - not so much during the later evening. From our room, we could also hear the squeaky doors from across the hall. Perhaps timely for maintenance to give the doors some fine tuning. I would also like to see a better spread of snacks throughout the day at the Executive Lounge and perhaps complementary barista coffee at the lounge and Glass restaurant for loyal top tier Hilton members.
Fantastic stay over Christmas 2017
We decided to have a staycation at Hilton Sydney with our toddler. Check-in was efficient where they reminded me of my suite upgrade. Enjoyed our complimentary breakfast at Glass each morning - a wide selection of hot and cold options. Access to Executive Lounge at any time between 6-9 - it can get quite busy during the evening drinks session. MAGIC team were highly responsive when it came to my requests (shoe shine, laundry and pillow selection as well as helping to arrange a spare iphone charger) and can be accessed by phone or the Hilton iphone app. Special thanks to the Glass staff member who found my toddler's toys left behind during breakfast. We were able to recover from hotel security.
Not a huge negative, but we were not provided with information regarding the available benefits at Hilton Sydney as a Diamond Hilton Honors member - something I had to confirm by dialling their MAGIC hotline. Breakfast at the Lounge is satisfactory and rates below the likes of Hilton Tokyo in terms of selection and quality - where Tokyo had an omelet station and also self service alcohol even in the morning. Barista made coffee should be complimentary during breakfast at Glass - at least for valued Diamond Hilton Honors members.
