We stayed 2 nights on floor 7 with a room that overlooked Luna Park and the Bridge. Absolutely stunning views at night with the city lit up on the horizon.
The location is fantastic with the hotel next door to North Sydney station and there are easy 10 minute walks downhill to the harbour side where you catch the ferry across to the Opera House (the walk back up the hill is a killer!)
Floor 7 definitely gets the full rumbling train treatment mentioned by others and was an issue for my partner. A room on a higher floor might be a better bet.
Breakfast for $30 ($20 for early starters!) was very average for a hotel of this supposed quality. I arrived about 8.45am and most of the hot food in the buffet had been run down to the last dregs without being refilled. Either a cost saving measure or poor service from the kitchen.
A charge for wifi is a pretty cheap stunt for a hotel that caters for business people but it is somewhat made up for by the excellent $4 happy hour in the bar which runs every day from 6pm to 7pm.
Staff on the whole were cheerful and helpful although the side was somewhat let down by 'Mr Grumpy' who checked us in. We were thoughtless enough to interrupt his personal conversation that he was having with his colleague and he certainly wasn't happy in having to interrupt his gossip update to deal with us!
