Accor Staff Shine Again

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Rick C Couples - TripAdvisor review

I have been a member for over 20 years and have travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and North America using Accor properties. In all that time I have been impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the Accor staff. The staff are the Accor’s greatest asset, The properties are a pleasure to stay at no matter what level of accommodation but without fail, we have left each one with an appreciation of the attention given by the staff. The staff at the Sofitel Darling Harbour are true ambassadors for the brand. From the front door, to the housekeeping, to Club Milliseme, we feel ‘at home’ the moment we enter. Special mention to Julien and Elmo but even the new junior staff exemplify the quality of the staff.

Bonjour Rick C, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I appreciate your feedback and have passed it on to our ambassadors. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Greg Brady - General Manager

Spent one night to take a rest at Darling harbour. This is fourth time we stay in this hotel and never disappointed. The front desk, hotel staff are friendly, recognise and acknowledge your Accor membership to make you feel welcome. Highly recommend.

The staff at Club Millesieme are wonderful. We have known some of them for several years. They are unfailingly polite, courteous, helpful and thoughtful. Particular shout out to Elmo, Julien and Alex (in no particular order).

Dear Bernard, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. Thank you for your continued loyalty to Accor and the hotel. It is always a pleasure welcoming you back to the hotel. I will pass your feedback onto the team in our Club Millessime. We look forward to your next stay with us. Sincerely, Vanessa Caruso Duty Manager

Great hotel, except for the music

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Deon Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Wonderful hotel and staff. The only problem is the awful music that is piped into the public areas (including the dining room) at high volume. It destroys the image of 5-star sophistication that they try to project (“Bonjour…..” etc. etc). There is so much excellent music available ( think jazz, blues, light classics…), that it is mystifying why they cannot move beyond the drivel that they force paying customers to endure. This is at least the third time that I have mentioned this in a review, to no avail.

Dear Deon, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. Thank you for your continued loyalty to Accor and the hotel. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel. Sincerely, Vanessa Caruso Duty Manager
