We stayed here in March and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location at the rocks. Our room at the back side of the hotel was pretty quiet and the roof top pool has a great view when the tourist ships are not at the dock. The staff were courteous and we managed to check in early after our overnight flight. They could do with a concierge service for experienced tourist advice and a bellboy for your luggage which does affect their service standard. So many places can be visited within close proximity. We did and recommend the following which is also in order. Day 1; Sydney Tower, Chinatown, Sydney Fishmarket, Darling Harbour, Sydney Aquarium. In the evening we ate at Glenmore Hotel on the roof which has a great view and walked around Sydney Harbour Bridge & Sydney Opera House.
Day 2; was further afield we went to Featherdale Wildlife Park at Doonside and Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Walk. This is quite a full on itinerary but very enjoyable and all are recommended and great tourists sights. We used the MyMulti Day Pass which was makes transport easy and also the free shuttle bus route 555 which runs up and down George Street in Sydney. Some of the attractions you can book online and save money. We definitely recommend Holiday Inn Old Sydney at the Rocks.
