Help - suggestions for a family friendly hotel

Getting myself all muddled up and in a bother haha

Looking for recommendations for a family (2 adults, 2 children 8 years and 10 years) to stay please. It will be 2 nights next month. Our children haven't been to Sydney. $'s is an overall factor however I'm keen for 4 stars or higher.

Hit me with your suggestions please.

The Sydney experts will likely suggest a few options. As for us we stay at the Great Southern in George St when visiting Sydney.

A bit old world but clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Close to Darling Harbor and China town and Paddy's market is virtually at the back door.

Really depends of budget and taste.

Good luck with this.

Sunday Monday nights is really really fortunate, and ideal. Those two nights happen to be the nights with the lowest rates, almost always.

Would your kids be willing to share a double bed? If so, you can comfortably afford a 5 Star hotel without going way over budget. I can list you a few properties, but did you have an approximate nightly budget in mind?

If they're happy to share a bed, that rate at Parkroyal is brilliant value for a room with two Queen beds.

It's close enough to George St, and also just across the road from Darling Quarter, which also has Tumbalong Park, so plenty of space and dining options

Rates advertised on www.Wotif.com and www.Booking.com
