A very good experience all round. Room was ready well ahead of official check in time which was greatly appreciated. Very comfortable bed and quiet location. Spectacular view over the harbour and Opera House.
Horizon level is definitely the way to go - Horizon lounge on 30th floor offers lots of amenities. Particularly enjoyed cocktail hour - great choice of canapés (sushi really good). That, and a couple of drinks while watching the sun set over the harbour was pretty nice.
Only minor grumble was regarding afternoon tea service which is offered in the lounge. When we arrived the locusts had already been and there was nothing much left. We had to hunt to find cups and saucers - shame it hadn't been replenished before official wind up time, but it wasn't a big deal really when we consider all the pluses.
Also, complimentary continental breakfast is offered in the lounge or if you prefer there is access to a very good and extensive breakfast buffet on the 1st floor.
Overall it was an excellent stay with professional, friendly staff. Kudos to Colin the concierge who directed us to several areas of town we probably would have missed otherwise. A great start to our vacation.
