Quay Grand vs Quay West

I'm heading to Sydney the last 2 weeks of August with my wife and 2 teenagers. Since we would prefer to all stay in 1 unit, I came across both the above choices since they both seem to have 2 bedroom suites and both with good locations and good views.

My sense of it is that the Quay Grand is more upscale and more expensive while the Quay West is better value and may have better Harbour views.

Would any knowledgeable reader care to comment and advise? Thanks in advance.

Quay Grand is in prime waterfront position overlooking Sydney Harbour. (low rise).

Quay West is located in The Rocks up a hill (high rise)with views.(Sydney Harbour/Opera House) not city west views.

My pick would be Quay Grand (harbour bridge/Circualr Quay view)..not Botanical Gardens.

I guess the price tag says it all !

However, there is nothing wrong with QW its just not in the same league as QG.

Mirvac have Quay West properties in many places but Quay Grand is the creme de la creme.

For views do you like on high (no Opera house from QG) or more eye level ie straight at the bridge. (this is QG highlight if you choose that view)

I would save the xtra $$ and go for QW.

The only concern I might have is then QW rooms are aging ..but have a look at images on hotel reviews to get a good idea.
