8.6 Very Good - based on 1042 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Fantastic gym. Fine dining. Walk to Darling Harbour.

The Hilton Sydney’s modern guest rooms have a lot packed into a relatively small space. Larger suites are great if you’re staying for more than a few days.

We particularly like their facilities which include a gym, a 25-metre indoor pool, sauna and steam room.

Conveniently located in the middle of Sydney’s CBD, close to many of the best shopping areas and about a 10-minute walk to both The Rocks and the gay scene in Darlinghust.
