          I'm inquiring about the rooftop view from Holiday Inn Sydney for NYE. Is there a bad spot to be on the rooftop? I'm trying to gauge time I need to be up there to get a great view, and coordinate with dinner reservations that needs to be made now.

          The roof area is not very large so you can see the Opera House and Harbour Bridge from just about anywhere up there. The pool area is slightly higher than the other part so it may be slightly better.
