Best Marriott Bonvoy hotel in Sydney?
27th September 2022 at 16:10ThriceForgiven
Traveling to Sydney during their summer…looking to burn some points for 2 or 3 nights, and there are a few options (Sheraton, Marriott, Autograph, etc.).
Has anyone stayed at any of these hotels recently and can provide recommendations on which one was the best? I may or may not have Platinum status by then so this could definitely sway the equation.
Thanks.29th September 2022 at 10:18Norsksaint
I’ve stayed at Pier One and Marriott Circular Quay. Would recommend the former, if you’re burning points. Very good hotel, and close to ‘the rocks’.
Marriott ok, bit more dated although closer to the CBD etc. Pier One, although close is a bit more of a trek to get back to each time.
Hope this helps.

This is very much depends on what you want.
I agree with the above, but would add that I like hotels with good gyms. And the Marriott gym is absolutely fantastic if you lift weights 🙂4th October 2022 at 07:53Kowalski
I’ve stayed at the Marriott and the Sheraton in the last few years (pre covid). I wasn’t particularly impressed with the Marriott, seemed a bit dated and the lounge was nothing to get too excited about. But if you want to be near Circular Quay then it’s location is good. Personally I’d pick the Sheraton over those 2 for myself. I prefer the location, they seem more generous with upgrades, the lounge had some better offerings and the hotel just felt a bit more luxurious.15th October 2022 at 14:19redlilly
Similar question, but this time Melbourne. We are there just before Christmas at the beginning of a 7 week trip around Aus and NZ. Has anyone any first hand experience of the AC Hotel on Southbank?
I have been to Melbourne before and seen lots of it, but OH hasn’t. From what I remember, Southbank seems like a good base… as the CBD felt a bit “soulless” to me.
Likewise lots of points to burn through.
