This is the last hotel my husband and I stayed at in Australia and it was the best! Like many other people we upgraded to the Jewel Spa Suite, Room 1284 to be exact, and it was well worth the extra money for our honeymoon. The bathroom alone is reason enough. Wonderful shower and amazing round jetted tub. I want one of my own!
Everything about the stay was great: the room was huge, the service, the toiletries, the robes, slippers, towels etc. The bed was so comfortable we never wanted to get up. We also got lucky and had a good view of the harbor. The staff was very accommodating. We arrived there pretty early and they got our room ready a few hours earlier than check in time.
The location for us was really convenient. We walked just about everywhere but did take a cab to the opera house.
The whole Star complex is really nice. Lots of restaurants and shops. It's also a short walk to the harbor where there are even more restaurants and shops :)
Overall I would definitely recommend it but if you take a cab make sure you know the address. Our cab driver had never heard of it!
