Hilton Hotel Luxury In Sydney City CBD
The Hilton Hotel in Sydney has one of the best locations of all hotels in the Sydney City CBD area. Located right in the heart of the city, just a few minutes walk to Town Hall Train Station.
The Hilton Hotel Sydney is a luxury 5 star hotel. Hilton recently sold the building to a Chinese investment company for $442 Million! Hilton will continue to lease the building so the Hilton Hotel will continue running at the same location.
The hotel under went a huge refurbishment in 2005. All rooms were updated and the foyer had a complete change. The hotel still has a new, fresh look. The rooms only have small windows though if you get a room down the front left hand side of the building you get excellent views straight down George Street towards Town Hall.
Room prices vary throughout the year, even different days of the week. You can get a room at the Sydney Hilton Hotel for as low as $228 for a stay on Sunday or Monday night. Prices go up during mid week for the business travellers and then higher Thursday, Friday and Saturday. During peak times like when there is a major sporting event or festival on in Sydney then the room prices can rocket to over $400 per night.
The hotel has all the extras that you would expect from a Hilton Hotel, 24 hour room service, cafe in the foyer, restaurants and a few bars to choose from and a gymnasium with a swimming pool directly below the hotel.
