Neighbourhood
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

We recently stayed at the Hotel and had a beautiful room overlooking the harbour. The first floor is a great place for a drink or coffee to take in the view. there is a light rail below Convention stop which makes it easy to get around. The only negative is if you are driving

I got way-laid by Qantas so scored a stay overnight in this hotel. At that price (or lack thereof) there was nothing to go wrong. The room was beautifully appointed, as would be expected in a Novotel and in Darling Harbour. The view was great - the only thing that struck me was

I would advise you to email the hotel and ask them to send you all the information on their babysitting service then you have it in writing directly from them. We didn’t have children with us therefore we didn’t look into it.
