Great Family Suites At The Four Seasons Sydney

Four Seasons is on of the oldest hotels in Sydney. Yet, it is still one of the best.

Hotel’s location is excellent – right in the heart of the city, in the Rocks, a stone’s through away from the water of the glorious Sydney Harbour.

Ferry terminal, Opera house and the CBD are just moments away.

Four Seasons brand in Asia is normally associated with utmost luxury and unsurpassed quality. It is a little different in Sydney as the actual hotel is quite old yet it is still a very comfortable base for exploring Sydney.

Hotel’s lobby and some of the common areas feel a little old but the suite we stayed in was excellent.

This time we travelled as a family. We arrived in the evening after a 24 hr flight from Europe. It was a pleasant touch to be welcomed by my name by the dedicated greeter in the lobby and the check in was very speedy.

After we got our keys we headed off to the club lounge for a quiet drink to relax after a long trip and, I have to say, it is one of the nicest lounges I’ve been to in Sydney. It is sophisticated and peaceful with only a few tables and few guests. Everyone was nicely dressed and the atmosphere was elegant. Guests were there to enjoy a pre-dinner drink and a beautiful view. This quickly became our favourite part of the day!

The Harbour View Executive Suite we booked (rates start from $725 per night) was an excellent choice for a family.

The views onto the Opera House and the Harbour are spectacular  – especially if you are lucky to stay here when the fireworks are on. And the functional layout and furniture in the room make it a perfect home away from home for a small family.

We were pleasantly surprised that the 3 seater plush sofa in the living room turned into a double bed at night. It was so much better than having roll away beds for the children, they look messy and take away a nice vibe of the suite. Kids were confortable at night and during the day we had a perfectly made up luxurious suite.

Other features of the suite: We had an en-suite with a separate bath (older style, on a small side) and shower as well as a powder room (always a nice touch in the suites).

Breakfast at ‘The Woods” was very good and indeed 5 star. Fresh juices, nice ripe fruit, omelet station were very pleasant. The only negative is that the restaurant is located very close to the entrance and is absolutely freezing. Dress warmly. It would be nice of the hotel could find a way to make the restaurant a little warmer – it would add to the cozy atmosphere.

Facilities: Four Seasons has a small outdoor pool (good addition for the hot summer months (December to February) and a Spa. The Spa is managed by a different group and the service there was a little disappointing.

Four Seasons is an excellent base for exploring the beauty of Sydney.

The executive suites are perfect for families of four.

We had a great time and we do recommend The Four Seasons to The Lux Traveller families in search of luxury in Sydney.

    Wow these are some beautiful pictures! I’ve been reading hearing so many wonderful things about the four seasons. Is there a recommended time to book to enjoy the lowest rates?

    Sydney is one of those places that I definitely plan on visiting soon. I’ve stayed in the Four Seasons in other countries and it would be one of my top choices when I make my travel plans to Sydney.
